Aerospace Today ... and Tomorrow has provided a forum for executive discussion on the aerospace industry since 1989.
Our theme this year is Reflecting on Augustine’s Laws while Shaping the Aerospace Industry.
This one-day symposium reflects on Augustine’s Laws, illustrating the universal truths and lessons captured in the 52 laws some 30 years later—laws that continue to shape the aerospace industry’s research, technology and acquisition programs. In the spirit of taking our work seriously, but not ourselves, each speaker or panel will address a specific law that is related to the topic that they are discussing.
Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with leaders during this media-free event. Registration is limited to 100 individuals.
- Frank Culbertson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Advanced Programs Group, Orbital Sciences Corporation
- Alton "Al" Romig Jr, Vice President Program Manager, Skunk Works Engineering Advanced Systems, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company
Former head of Lockheed Martin and Under Secretary of the Army, Norman R. Augustine looked at the complexities and conundrums of today's business management, set forth 52 laws that cover every area of business, and offered solutions in an entertaining, informative manner.
The most cited law is number 16: In the year 2054, the entire defense budget will purchase just one tactical aircraft. This aircraft will have to be shared by the Air Force and Navy 3½ days each per week except for leap year, when it will be made available to the Marines for the extra day.
