Dr. Mark Eddings has been named LMI’s senior vice president of space market, bringing 15 years of experience supporting the national security space industry.
“I am pleased to join the LMI team,” he said. “LMI continues to prove themselves as an innovative solutions provider in the market, and I look forward to contributing to the company’s expansion within the space industry by bringing their forward-thinking capabilities to the forefront for our customers.”
Eddings most recently was the technical director for the Space Security and Defense Program and a primary technical advisor to the program’s director. He was directly involved in shaping national space policy, requirements and budget recommendations regarding military and commercial space security.
Before that, he led a team in the development of the U.S. Space Force space control force designs, which received formal validation from the Joint Staff Requirements Council. These designs resulted in over $10 billion of new capabilities and resiliency improvements to national security space systems since 2014.
“LMI is thrilled to have Mark join our executive team to lead our space market,” said Doug Wagoner, president and CEO of LMI. “Mark has dedicated his career to the advancement and protection of our nation’s most critical space assets with always an eye to the future of mission needs. LMI not only views space as most critical to our defense and intel markets, but will increasingly be critical to our solutions in the homeland and civilian markets.”
