HUNTSVILLE — Parsons executive James Lackey will join panelists from around the industry at the Space & Missile Defense Symposium at the Von Braun Center to discuss “Today’s Capability and Next Steps for Modernization. Lackey is senior vice president and general manager of defense and intelligence mission solutions for Parsons.
Wednesday’s panel discussion will highlight recommendations the Department of Defense can take to maintain their tactical advantage as adversary technology continues to evolve.
Parsons, a disruptive technology provider in the national security and critical infrastructure, has an office in Huntsville’s Cummings Research Park.
“Global and near-peer threats to national security are evolving faster today than at any point in history – in every domain,” Lackey said. “Our defense, security, and space experts will be on-hand during the Symposium to discuss the global threat environment and highlight how Parsons is transforming space and missile defense by delivering the smartest, fastest, most affordable solutions in the industry.”
Visitors to Parsons’ booth can test their space defense skills on retro arcade games while learning about some of the company’s key technologies for the missile defense and space domains.
Parsons representatives will share their expertise at the symposium in missile defense system integration; hypersonic tracking and simulation; end-to-end solutions in command and control; small satellite development and launch; space domain awareness; assured position, navigation, and timing; and full-spectrum cybersecurity.
Some of the exhibits include an Assured Positioning System. Deriving its information from Globalstar low-Earth-orbit satellites, the signals are not subject to jamming or spoofing.
The C2Core is an operationally proven, battle-tested command and control system for air, space, cyber, and all-domain applications.
OrbitXchange provides increased capacity for satellite operations through commercial antenna services in a cyber secure cloud environment. They work in tandem with globally distributed commercial antennas.
Parson’s SatFlyer offers flight dynamic mission lifecycle support with modeling, prediction, disposal and maneuver planning, radio frequency interference, an orbit calculator, mass properties calculations, and a Python application programming interface.
And lastly, Space Access unlocks the space domain with multi-manifest launch integration solutions through hardware and system integration services.
