ExecutiveBiz featured Jeff Trauberman, vice president of government affairs for national systems business at Virgin Orbit, in its most recent Executive Spotlight interview published Friday. He talked about his strategic goals for the national security arm of Virgin Orbit and how the business’ capabilities could be used by the military amid threats to U.S. and allied space systems. The interview also focused on recent contract awards, acquisitions and partnerships to expand its federal marketplace position.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Trauberman:
“Virgin Orbit has been working very hard to enable broader space solutions and other valuable services in cooperation with our other partners. These include space domain awareness, earth monitoring solutions and data analytics.
We are collaborating with leading industry partners to demonstrate responsiveness as well as ‘end to end’ space solutions in these disciplines. Virgin Orbit intends to bring valuable capability to the ultimate users.
Our objective is to show how a team of industry innovators can work together to enable responsive space solutions on very rapid timelines to support critical military operations. We believe a government, such as the United States, should be able to describe what type of capabilities are needed and when; in turn, an industry team can lead in the rapid implementation of the appropriate mission solutions.”
