Event Description:

Mike Greenley is the Group President of MDA, a Maxar Technologies company with internationally recognized leadership is space robitics, satellite antennas and subsystems, surveillance and intelligence solutions, and defence and maritime systems.

As international space agencies move forward into deeper space, there is an emerging commercial space market in Low Earth Orbit -- the final frontier is opening up. Countries and companies are jostling to capture their place in the new space economy and the stakes are high. 
Today, space touches the lives of Canadians 20 to 30 times a day -- from weather predictions, to using an ATM, to checking a map on a smartphone, to downloading movies, to ground and air traffic management, and big data analytics. Tomorrow?s advances -- autonomous cars, smart cities, advanced autonomous AI and robotics -- are also tied to space science and digital technologies. 
The global space market is worth over USD $380B today; analysts forecast it will grow to be a multi-trillion-dollar market in coming decades.
Who will lead in this exciting new realm of economic activity? The U.K. aims to capture 10 percent of the global space market by 2030; Luxembourg has set its sights on being the leading space mining country. Canada, the third country in space, is a world leader in satellite communications, Earth observation, space robotics, space science, optics and sensors thanks to past strategic investments by the Canadian government.

Guest Speakers:  Mike Greenley & Holly Johnson

Holly Johnson was appointed the President's Business Manager earlier this year and has propelled herself into leadership roles, helping to apply space technology to applications in medical, nuclear and advanced manufacturing.
