Boeing to demonstrate innovations in space, cyberspace at National Symposium

Boeing is highlighting its latest achievements in human spaceflight and exploration, as well as satellites and cyber capabilities, during the Space Foundation’s 29th National Space Symposium, April 8-11 in Colorado Springs.

“Weíre collaborating with our NASA, defense, and commercial customers to provide affordable, innovative solutions in space exploration, satellites and cyber operations,” said Roger Krone, president of Boeing Network and Space Systems. “During the symposium, we’ll talk about some of the advances that are shaping how we integrate new and previously proven technologies to meet those customers’ needs.”

Also during the event, Boeing will sponsor the Gen. James E. Hill Lifetime Achievement Award, which will honor the late space pioneers Neil Armstrong and Sally Ride. It’s the first time the award will be given posthumously.

Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, and Ride, the first American woman in space, died last year.

The Boeing exhibit at Booth 200 will include a full-scale model of the 702SP satellite and showcase current examples of satellite, cyber, and space technology advancements. Company representatives also will participate in the following discussions:
