Ross Niebergall: Past, Present, and Future of the Space Industry

The Faculty of Science Department of Computer Science invites you to a virtual public lecture with Science alumnus Dr. Ross Niebergall, BSc(HHons)'86. This is a public lecture series by alumni and friends of the Department of Computer Science. Please be sure to register in advance.

The space domain enables everyday life in commercial, civil and military industries. Today, technology development is driving lower cost launch and the proliferation of space assets. The intersection of government and commercial developments provide hybrid space architectures which accomplish missions with newfound speed and agility. As space matures, technology that was once hosted on the ground is moving to space. However, space is increasingly becoming contested, putting future developments at risk.

Ross Niebergall is the Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of L3Harris Technologies, an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator. Dr. Niebergall joined Harris Corporation in 2017, prior to the company's merger with L3 Technologies, after a long career at Raytheon. Dr. Niebergall was born and raised in Saskatchewan. He holds a B.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Regina, and an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame.
