Join Professor Chris Impey, Melissa and me Monday, January 20, 2014 at 8 pm ET for an exciting discussion of Unmanned Space Exploration.
Our guest is Laurie Calhoun, author of We Kill Because We Can. We will discuss the book and some of what technology detractors think or understand drones to be. We hope this exchange serves to enlighten and dispell some of the misconceptions and views held about the technology and people in the industry. Please join us for a frank discussion on a timely topic.
Noam Chomsky called the book, "Chilling and Comprehensive"
Our guest this morning is Corey Moore, Vice President Global Supply Chain Programs and site manager of Space Park in Redondo Beach, for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems.
Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions and is a premier provider of manned and unmanned aircraft, spacecraft and advanced technologies critical to our nation’s security.
Corey is responsible for all support operations at the Space Park site in Redondo Beach.
Prior to this position, he was vice president, Global Supply Chain Programs, in which he provided oversight for Global Supply Chain execution in support of AS programs. He has also served as vice president, Advanced Concepts, and vice president of the F/A-18, F-5 and T-38 programs.
Corey joined Northrop Grumman in 1987 as an operational research specialist in Advanced Design. As a member of the Pilot Vehicle Interface team for the Advanced Tactical Fighter program, he established the requirements for cockpit and avionics systems interfaces on the YF-23.
As many of our listeners know, historically, the aviation industry has played an enormous role in the growth of the South Bay and Northrup Grumman has always been a valued member of the Chamber and esteemed community partner. So this morning, we’re going to get a little history lesson and discover what those magnificent men in their flying machines are up to these days.

Listen in as we debate fact and fiction of today's shadow wars.
We've had a lot of new listeners in the last three years, so it was time to bring back Norman.
What makes a class of warship a success, a failure, or a missed opportunity? What fundamentals consistently result in a success, and what common threads need to be avoided in order to not repeat the mistakes of the past?
What decision and results we have seen in previous classes of warships are we seeing repeated now, and what are some options for the Navy going forward?
For warship classes from right before WWII to the present, to discuss this and more will be returning guest, Dr. Norman Friedman.
In addition to numeral articles through the years, Dr. Friedman writes a monthly column, "World Naval Developments" in the US Naval Institute's magazine, Proceedings and is the author of many books including U.S. Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History; Unmanned Combat Air Systems; and Naval Weapons of World War One.
As a starting point for our discussion we will be using Dr. Friedman's article in US Naval Institute's magazine, Naval History, Judging the Good from the Bad.
Applying Complexity Leadership Theory to Drone Airspace Integration
Applying Complexity Leadership Theory to Drone Airspace Integration
This book examines the leadership challenge created by the requirement to integrate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into the national airspace system (NAS). The overall lifecycle of leadership does not lend itself to a simple definition or a defined timeline that anyone can follow. As much as society enjoys creating, all of the processes and technology to simplify our lives (although this is debatable), leadership deals with humans and humans are not that simple. The challenge is that the FAA follows a leadership and change management model that is authoritarian, linear, and evolutionary.

Eileen will share some insights into what it takes to develop a small Unmanned Aircraft System and build a successful company around it. Also up for discussion, how to determine which applications make sense to pursue, and what it is like to do business in the U.S. unmanned technology field.
1. The United States and Turkey have reached an agreement for manned and unmanned American warplanes to carry out aerial attacks on the Islamic State from two Turkish air bases.
2. The tide of Yemen’s messy war has unexpectedly turned, handing a morale boost and possibly decisive military momentum to Gulf Arab-backed forces bent on ending the ascendancy of the Houthis, a powerful militia they see as a puppet of Iran.
3. U.S.-trained Iraqi soldiers are preparing for an offensive against the Islamic State in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, in a key test of the Obama administration’s strategy for defeating the militant group.
4. A senior Iranian official who helped lead negotiations with world powers that led to the recent nuclear deal said that the Islamic Republic will continue to import and export arms freely across the globe without restriction.
5. Turkish fighter jets have struck Islamic State targets in Syria and the government has rounded up hundreds of suspected militants in a coordinated crackdown as the country deployed military force for the first time against the terror group.
