Executive Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton
Chris Bogdan was selected in February to lead the further development and execution of Booz Allen’s space business. He has since revitalized this business through a new strategy that brings together work across the defense and civilian space missions, including the Space Force, Air Force and DOD agencies, as well as NASA and NOAA.
He has created efficiencies and synergies through closer collaboration and unity of effort across the teams supporting Booz Allen’s space business in Los Angeles, Colorado Springs, Houston and Washington, D.C.
“Chris has created incredible momentum across defense, national security and civil space organizations as a prime digital integrator,” said Judi Dotson, an executive vice president who leads Booz Allen’s Global Defense business. “His team is delivering new technology and solutions at the heart of the challenge of space data.”
Space continues to be a top priority for Booz Allen’s business given the rapid proliferation of the domain due to emerging threats from our adversaries, new government and commercial priorities, increased funding, new technologies and a massive increase in space assets and stakeholders.
This year, Bogdan’s team will concentrate on implementing the company’s space strategy. Its main goals are to become a top provider of space data solutions for ISR, climate intelligence, and space awareness/traffic management, as well as a leading integrator of space systems like open architecture ground systems and constellations.
“The space market and environment are undergoing a significant transformation with new threats, new challenges, new players and new opportunities,” Bogdan said. “I am excited that Booz Allen is well positioned to bring many of our world-class capabilities such as open architecture data platforms, artificial intelligence/machine learning, data analytics and fusion, cyber capabilities and digital engineering and integration to help our military, civil and commercial partners solve their most difficult problems.”
