Ball Aerospace hosts mission assurance improvement workshop

Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. and the Aerospace Corporation will co-host the 2013 Mission Assurance Improvement Workshop, April 30-May 1 in Boulder, Colo., to explore and document best practices and craft a common approach to mission assurance for the U.S. space program.

The workshop at Ball Aerospace is the culmination of nine months of effort by government, academic and industry subject matter experts to address high priority, common challenges faced by the U.S. space community as it strives to address the challenges to mission success. To achieve that goal, the workshop is designed to enhance the collaboration among U.S. space professionals in the community.

“Ball’s proactive approach to mission assurance makes us a trusted partner in risk-based decision making,” said Sherri Fike, Ball’s vice president of Mission Assurance. As an example Fike cited the company’s mission assurance best practice of utilizing an automated corrective action and tracking system.

Keynote speakers at the workshop include Dr. Walter Scott, founder and chief technical officer and executive vice president of DigitalGlobe, and Russ Romanella, director of safety and mission assurance for NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

In addition to Ball Aerospace and the Aerospace Corporation, those attending the invitation-only conference include: AEI Systems, Aeroflex, the Applied Physics Laboratory, BAE Systems, Boeing, General Dynamics, Harris, International Rectifier, Kratos, Loral Space Systems, Lockheed Martin, M.S. Kennedy, the Missile Defense Agency, Micropac Industries, MIT Lincoln Labs, NASA, Northrop Grumman, the National Reconnaissance Office, Orbital Sciences Corporation, Raytheon, and the U.S. Air Force.
