Event #2: Washington Technology Power Breakfast: Space: The Next Great Frontier

Date: August 8, 2019
Cost: $99-$149
Location: The Tower Club in Tysons Corner, VA

NASA is going back to the moon and then on to Mars. NOAA is looking to improve its weather satellites. The Global Positioning System is in need of an update. And small satellites with their specific missions and quick turnaround times are gaining momentum.

At this Washington Technology Power Breakfast, they’ll explore this growing market and what it means for government contractors. There is more going on here than putting “birds” in the air. There are related ground and control systems that are needed–and there is the data. Massive amounts of data that flow to and from these satellites. That data needs to be collected, managed and protected.

Industry and government officials will be on hand talking strategy, opportunities and challenges that the contracting community and your government customers face.

Event #3: CMS Annual IT Conference – Convergence 2019
