Tiphaine Louradour took over as president of International Launch Services (ILS) in March, just as the pandemic was sweeping the globe. She says she spent her first week as president at the SATELLITE show in Washington D.C., and was in ILSs office for approximately half of a work day before the company transitioned to remote work. Now, she is video conferencing with customers around the world, instead of traveling for in-person meetings.
Since its introduction in the fall of 2016, and following the first firm launch order for the vehicle at that time, the Proton Medium has continued to gain traction and interest in the marketplace, said Kirk Pysher, President of ILS. Customers continue to look for vehicles that are right-sized for new-generation missions but also provide compelling value and launch vehicle diversity. Pysher continued, We look forward to the upcoming launches starting next year.
