Boulder, Colorado, May 15, 2019 – Orbital Micro Systems (OMS), a leader in advanced instrumentation for small satellite missions and analysis-ready earth data intelligence platforms, announced that Brian Leslie has been appointed Global Sales Director. In this capacity, he will be responsible for the company’s sales and go-to-market activities across North America, EMEA, Latin America, and the Asia/Pacific region. His appointment is effective immediately.

A resident of the Denver area, Leslie brings 25 years of industry expertise to OMS. He has a proven track record in enterprise data sales, serving in executive sales positions with industry leaders like Google, Digital Globe, and SkyBox Imaging. He has also spent over a decade in engineering, working with global giants Lockheed Martin and Computer Sciences Corporation.

OMS launched its first instrumentation package aboard the NASA ISS re-supply mission April 17 from Wallops Island, Virginia. OMS plans to place six to eight more weather observation satellites in orbit throughout the next 12 months, which will provide observation revisit rates of approximately two hours, compared to the three to seventy-two hour data collection intervals available through existing systems.
