Robert Geckle, chairman and CEO of Airbus U.S. Space & Defense, was featured in a recent Executive Spotlight interview published Wednesday. He talked about company projects, such as building the militarized version of the H-145 aircraft, that he considers “most rewarding.” Geckle also discussed his strategic goals for the year, the markets he is eyeing, the core values that are important to the company’s culture and the initiatives to attract and retain talent.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Geckle detailing the areas where Airbus could expand its footprint:
“The areas of satellites, surveillance, unmanned systems, communication terminals and others are critical spaces that are absolutely relevant to what the Department of Defense needs in the coming years. Airbus U.S. is ramping up our offerings in these areas. This is where I see our growth coming from as we move forward.
Synthetic aperture and radar technologies are becoming more necessary in both the commercial and defense sectors., Airbus U.S. has a number of proven technologies available to meet those needs.”
