Event description
A lunch briefing on the importance of space to the American economy.

About this Event

Space impacts every facet of 21st century life. Business, governance, education, manufacturing, healthcare, communication, and more all rely on space-based infrastructure and the technologies derived from exploring and operating in space.

The global space economy is on track to reach $1 trillion, and in the balance sheet of national priorities, space is a critical investment. It yields cascading dividends for job creation, technology transfer, expanded entrepreneurship, international partnerships, shared research and development, and much more. Indeed, space exploration and operation delivers wider opportunity than any effort on the planet—or beyond it.

Please join the Space Foundation, CompTIA's Space Enterprise Council, and the GPS Innovation Alliance for a briefing on the impact of space to our national infrastructure. A light lunch will be provided.

Speakers:

Curtis Hay - Technical Fellow, GPS & Maps, General Motors

Ajay Mehta - Senior Advisor, NOAA NESDIS

Deborah Lawrence - Manager, Navigation Programs, Federal Aviation Administration

Captain David Sambrano - Flight Operations Duty Manager, United Airlines
