A General Dynamics facility is housing a new center for scientists and engineers in both the private and academic centers to collaborate and share ideas on developing future space systems and scientific instruments.
The EDGE Innovation Network opened its the 13th EDGE Space Innovation Center Friday at the company’s Seabrook, Md. facility, located two miles of NASA‘s Goddard Space Flight Center, General Dynamics said Friday.
General Dynamics’ C4 systems business unit sponsors the EDGE network.
Chris Marzilli, president of the C4 systems unit, said the center aims to provide scientists, engineers and other professionals to new technologies for future space missions.
The new innovation center contains meeting rooms and demonstration areas intended to provide professionals an open, collaborative environment for sharing ideas on flight operations and ground systems.
