NewSpace Chicago and Orbitmuse, Inc. and its new strategic partnership location at mHUB Chicago are pleased to welcome Brent Abbott from AAC Microtec/Clyde Space to give you an insider view of a CubeSat company. Founded in 2005 by Craig Clark, Clyde Space recognised very early on that CubeSats represented a game-changing approach to spacecraft design and production and got busy developing CubeSat systems from the start. Today, the company is still committed to supporting the increasing number of commercial, military and science applications of CubeSats and small satellites via a process of continuous innovation and process development. In January 2018 Clyde Space joined AAC Microtec to combine and strengthen the 2 companies’ position in the small and nanosatellite market. Clyde Space is now subsidiary of the Nasdaq First North Stockholm listed ÅAC Microtec organisation. Clyde Space customers include international universities, commercial companies, and government organisations. Approximately 80% of Clyde Space sales are outside of the European Union and over 95% outside of the UK.
Brent is the CEO and Head of North American Operations for AAC Clyde Space in the U.S. Previous to this, Brent served for eight years in several roles for Surrey US including Head/Director of Business Development, Head of Program Management and Engineering. Before this he worked in Business Development for Honeywell Defense and Space. Brent earned a B.S.E.E. from Iowa State University in 1985.
This is part of a continuing series of space entrepreneurship discussion and networking forums presented by NewSpace Chicago and hosted at mHUB Chicago.
