Leanne Caret, president and CEO of Boeing’s defense, space and security business, told Fortune Magazine in an interview published Monday the Trump administration’s move to communicate with industry represents a step toward collaborative public-private sector relations.
“The types of conversations this administration is having now, and the insight it’s giving us, are unique,” added Caret, who ranks 23rd on Fortune’s 2018 Most Powerful Women list.
In regard to space, the three-decade Boeing veteran noted the use of satellites in many people’s daily lives.
She added that the company has built a 55-foot unmanned submarine and that she predicts an autonomous air traffic system will become part of day-to-day transportation.
“There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that one of these days, we’re all going to get into our little car pod, and we’re just going to go traverse.”
