Episode Summary

NASA’s Artemis program is centered around space exploration, so to talk us through human landing systems and how Leidos and Dynetics are working with NASA to send the first woman & the next man to the moon is VP of Space Systems Kim Doering. Key takeaways: The evolution of Dynetics and their work with Leidos The programs Dynetics is involved in with NASA NASA’s Artemis program Concept of the lunar economy The collaborative approach to Dynetics’ HLS Difference between the Apollo and Artemis missions

Episode Notes

NASA’s Artemis program is centered around space exploration and setting up an infrastructure and ultimately a lunar economy on Mars. 

To talk us through human landing systems (HLS) and how the Leidos and Dynetics team is working with NASA to send the first woman and the next man to the lunar surface is 36-year space systems veteran Kim Doering.

Kim is Vice President of Space Systems at Dynetics, a Leidos company. Kim shares her career journey to Dynetics and how she’s excited to see the passion and enthusiasm in the next-generation team that’s coming aboard to work on this new mission in space.

She also talks about the evolution of Dynetics’ space exploration capabilities, from space centers to propulsion systems and satellites to working on NASA’s Artemis program.

She explains what differentiates the Leidos Dynetics human landing system to make it crew-centric, modular, and how they’ve pulled together a vast team of experts to collaborate for a really sustainable solution. And how this technology they’re developing can be applied more broadly to support missions on earth, develop new materials, new diagnostics and new research that all could have implications in the future.
