Lockheed Martin, the nation's largest defense contractor, has launched a new open-source project for enterprise social networking called Eureka Streams. The company is inviting developers to give the technology a whirl.

The Eureka Streams technology, which looks and behaves much like existing commercial social networking software, is aimed at helping what Lockheed Martin refers to as knowledge workers make informed decisions by finding relevant colleagues and groups, following their streams of activity, and engaging in conversation.

Eureka Streams provides an open platform to support agile decision making and innovation, Lockheed Martin officials said.
