U.S. Army and Navy, Lockheed Martin Among Thomson Reuters’ Top 100 Global Innovators
The U.S. Army and Navy, and Lockheed Martin are among Thomson Reuters’ Top 100 Global Innovators this year.
Also on the list were 45 U.S. companies including IBM, General Electric and AT&T.
The U.S. Department of the Army, reporting to the Department of Defense, is composed of two components: the active component and the reserve components, Thomson Reuters said. The operational Army consists of numbered armies, corps, divisions, brigades, and battalions that conduct full spectrum operations around the world, it added.
The U.S. Department of the Navy, established in 1798, has three main components: The Navy Department, consisting of executive offices; the operating forces, including the Marine Corps and the shore establishment, the report said.
Lockheed Martin, based in Bethesda, Md., and established in 1912, makes aeronautics, space systems and submarines.
Thomson Reuters said it used a methodology developed by the news organization and approved by unnamed IP-centric organizations.
Among other things, it used the Thomson Reuters Derwent World Patents Index,
Derwent Patents Citation Index, Quadrilateral Patent Index, Thomson Innovation and the IP intelligence and collaboration platform to come up with the list.
