Boeing features latest innovations at National Space Symposium

Company leaders discuss key topics prior to the event

As Boeing highlights its satellites, human space flight activities and network-enhanced technologies at the 27th National Space Symposium, April 11-14, in Colorado Springs, Colo., attendees will be surrounded by impressive exhibits such as Boeing’s X-37 Approach and Landing Test Vehicle (ALTV), 3-D MILSATCOM demonstrations, hanging ScanEagle models as well as development units for the Commercial Crew Transportation System.

“The National Space Symposium gives Boeing the opportunity to showcase our strengths in developing and delivering innovative space and satellite capabilities,” said Roger Krone, president of the Network and Space Systems (N&SS) business unit of Boeing Defense, Space & Security. “Our business is focused on bringing NASA, the Department of Defense and our commercial partners new, cost-effective capabilities for their spaceflight and satellite communication missions.”

"The National Space Symposium gives Boeing the opportunity to showcase our strengths in developing and delivering innovative space and satellite capabilities."

The Boeing exhibit, at Booth #200, showcases the company’s support for military and commercial satellite operations and the International Space Station, as well as its development of space exploration vehicles and unmanned capabilities. The centerpiece of this year’s exhibit is the 3-D, interactive satellite demonstration in which users can explore Boeing’s modeling and simulation capabilities in a variety of satellite environments.

This year Boeing debuts its first outdoor display of innovative space equipment. The ALTV, which preceded the United States’ first unmanned vehicle to return from space and land autonomously, the X-37B, will be on display at the Boeing exhibit.  In addition, a mock-up of Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 spacecraft and a pressurized structure of the crew module is also on display.

In advance of Boeing’s participation as sponsor of the exhibit center for this year’s National Space Symposium, company leaders recently met with reporters in Arlington, Va., to set the stage for this collaborative event. 

The following video clips provide information on key topics that will be explored further at the Symposium.
