BWX Technologies said this week it has named Rob Smith to the newly created position of president of government operations.

"In this position, Smith will be responsible for all of BWXT's U.S.-based nuclear business lines that report through the nuclear operations and nuclear services segments, including the company's work for the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, NASA and other government customers," the company said.

Smith most recently was vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's radar and sensors systems market segment. He joined Lockheed in 2008 through its acquisition of Nantero's government business unit. Smith also previously worked for the National Security Agency.
