2019 P-3 IOSC and C-130 HOC

2020 Hercules Orion Conference (HOC)

C-130 Hercules and P-3 Orion


Important announcement regarding the 2020 Hercules Orion Conference (HOC)


Ordinarily we are deep into the planning of our annual C-130 Hercules Operators and P-3 International Operators Conferences, which we have officially combined and re-branded as the Hercules Orion Conference or HOC; however this will be the first time in decades that Lockheed Martin will not offer a C-130 or P-3 conference due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We made this decision with a lot of consideration for the overall health and well-being of our event participants. Given the unknowns of the current environment, we believe it is best to pause on hosting this year’s event.


We will miss connecting with you in person. The HOC allows us to have meaningful conversations and insightful dialogue with teammates. It is and always will be an honor and a privilege to engage with you and discuss your needs as C-130 and P-3 operators in person each year. Many of us have also used this forum for “side-bar” discussions, building shared trust and commitment to you and your mission. Rest assured that we remain committed to that same focus and will schedule any discussions you require.


While this October will look different for us without the HOC, rest assured that our team is directing its energy into our 2021 event. We are using this pause as an opportunity to plan an event that will continue to elevate our discussions about the C-130 and the P-3.

We appreciate your ongoing support of the P-3, C-130, Lockheed Martin and the HOC. We look forward to seeing you in person in October 2021.
