Accelerating Innovation for the New Space Economy

Thu. March 15| 8:30 AM - 9:00 AM | 202

Howard Lance, CEO of Maxar Technologies, will share how Maxar has unlocked the power of four market-leading space brands with unmatched end-to-end advanced systems capabilities and integrated solutions expertise. He will address the opportunities that he sees for industry growth in this new space renaissance and why now is the right time for a vertically integrated company focused on helping customers address their most mission-critical challenges. The new space economy is expected to become a $1.1 trillion market by 2040. As capital is deployed more efficiently and technologies converge, demand for data and insights is growing and global IP traffic is projected to be about 60 times what it is now in the next 20 years. Companies that can provide commercially driven technology innovation will be well-positioned to accelerate and lead the new space economy.
