Grand Opening: Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South

When visiting the Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South, it becomes evident that going to space is just the beginning! It’s what you do when you get there that matters. Lockheed Martin builds satellites and spacecraft that do amazing things in space for government and commercial customers. The satellites give earlier warning of severe weather, connect troops on the battlefield and deliver GPS directions to a billion people worldwide. Connecting people. Advancing discovery. And protecting what matters most.

When time matters – the case for Security Automation
In our digital world, data is as valuable as currency.  Attackers are persistent in trying to gain access and we do not always have the ability to respond fast enough resulting in the loss of valuable data.  Security Automation provides a faster, more efficient and streamlined way to automate the processes for the identification, triage, and response to security events.  The ability to scale helps keep data secure by respond.

New World Class Space Quality – Are We Speaking the Same Language?

Companies, Project Managers, and Engineers spend hundreds of hours- and dollars- ‘translating’ quality requirements for Space Programs. What Space requirements are in one country is not the same as another. So how do you overcome these challenges to get your project launched in time? In this session, we will review real case studies from Turkey, Canada, Germany, India, and the US. We will review what quality hurdles they faced, and how we used innovation and know-how to get the job done. Join us in a review of worldwide quality requirements, and how to start looking toward a World Quality standard.

New Generation Space Leaders: The Next Giant Leap: Mentoring the Artemis Generation to College…and BEYOND!

Teacher Liaison Student Tours and Mentoring with New Generation Professionals

The Space Foundation New Generation Team, in collaboration with the Space Foundation Education Team, is pleased to offer our first ever Leadership Exchange for high school students, in combination with our long-standing Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South Student Tours. 

New Generation professionals from Space Foundation Corporate Member companies will have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on high school students by providing their unique leadership perspective and vision for the future.  Mentors will also share personal and professional experiences that they have found valuable during their career, and answer any questions that these college bound students may have. 

Guided tours to specially designated “destination booths and displays” are folded into a larger, broader educational experience that represents a wide variety of aerospace programs, companies, and organizations. The Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South will offer a mind-boggling glimpse into the most innovative current and future space technologies and the customized destination booth visits give participants opportunities to learn from Space Foundation Corporate Member companies. This event is open to Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons and their students ONLY.
