Today on the Constellations podcast we will discuss how smallsat technology is being used in innovative ways to solve technical challenges faced by the military, science community, and industry. Find out how custom sensor, software, hardware, and thermal management solutions are making significant contributions to national defense and scientific discoveries. Hear about the programs where this technology is being applied to better understand global temperature changes in the thermosphere, identify the population of potentially hazardous near-Earth objects (NEOs) and mitigate the adverse effects of space weather. Our guest today is Jim Marshall, Director of the Space Dynamics Laboratory. Jim provides oversight and integration of business development operations for both the Space Dynamics Laboratory and Energy Dynamics Laboratory. He has broad government and industry expertise and is on the frontlines of helping to solve complex issues in space, in air, on ground, and at sea for the government.
