March 27th 2023 - Jason Dunn, CEO of Outpost, was invited to present the story of Outpost at the Amazon MARS conference hosted by Jeff Bezos. MARS is a yearly invite-only event hosted by Amazon Founder and Executive Chair Jeff Bezos. MARS brings together innovative minds in Machine learning, Automation, Robotics, and Space to share new ideas across these rapidly advancing domains.
Jason presented his talk “To Space And Back (And Back Again) Extending The Life of Satellites” and spoke about the growing issue of orbital space debris and the sustainability mission of Outpost to change the disposable mindset of the space industry.
Our work at Outpost is focused on finding new ways to leverage space technology to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our planet today. Whether it's monitoring and mitigating the effects of climate change, protecting our natural resources, or improving the way we manage our cities and infrastructure, we believe that space can play a vital role in creating a better world for all of us.
At the heart of our work is a deep commitment to sustainability. We believe that the only way to truly protect our planet is to build a more sustainable future, one that is built on the principles of innovation, collaboration, and stewardship. And we believe that space can be a key driver of that sustainable future.
So, as we continue to explore the possibilities of space, we remain committed to our mission of creating a more resilient, more sustainable planet. We believe that the challenges we face today are too big for any one person or organization to solve alone. But with the power of technology, the spirit of innovation, and the commitment of people from all walks of life, we can build a better world together.
