The Labcorp Leadership in Technology Speaker Series welcomes Mark Adams, vice president of technology and engineering at Peraton. Adams will discuss "Space 2.0 – The Future of Space and Overcoming Critical Technology Challenges – 'Engineering the Future to Infinity & Beyond'."

NASA Artemis I was launched on Nov. 16, 2022, where a man capable spacecraft traveled to the moon over a 25 day mission timeline and splashed down successfully having traveled over 1.3 million miles. Peraton, as a partner with NASA, was a critical contractor supporting the Artemis Mission, operating critical communication networks including both NASA’s Near Space Network and Deep Space Network.  The space industry has had a recent rejuvenation as the excitement builds around future missions such as manned travel to the moon and Mars and the development of new space communications systems (e.g., SpaceX Starlink and One Web). During this presentation, Adams will discuss the technology challenges associated with these new space missions and discuss how companies like Peraton are working as partners with government and industry to overcome these challenges.
