A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-Tzu

The eleventh week of the Digital Engineering for Space Applications: Modeling and Simulation (#CADES) programming was filled with excitement. On Monday and Tuesday, the cohort members were busy filming their Demo Day pitches for the final video. Demo Day for the Digital Engineering for Space Applications: Modeling and Simulation cohort is sponsored by Lockheed MartinLinQuest, and Valid Evaluations. This event will be held in-person at Catalyst Campus in Colorado Springs, Colorado on 18 November 2021 from 8:00AM – 10:30 AM MT. The Demo Day video will launch 15 November 2021 and will be available on our website. You do not want to miss out on meeting the eight cohort companies and listening to our special guest speakers!

The cohort had the privilege to hear from Phil Kwong about AWS, Brad Chedister regarding SOFWERX/DEFENSEWERX, and Tyler Sweatt about why working with the government is great even though it can be hard. The eight companies then participated in the City-Wide Space Community Days from Wednesday to Friday. This city-wide event was designed to offer the Space Community of Colorado an opportunity to hear from leaders in the DoD and Commercial space industry, participate in interactive workshops designed for the space professional and entrepreneur, tour the United States Air Force Academy, and network with leaders of like minds!
