Mike Greenley highlights the important link between public procurement and the commercialization of new technologies that boosts Canada’s innovation ecosystem and helps create jobs for Canadians. He shares this perspective in the announcement that MDA has received a contract from the Canadian Space Agency to design the Gateway External Robotics Interfaces (GERI), a key component of Canadarm3 which will be installed on the international Lunar Gateway.

“Canada is renowned for its ability to deliver advanced operational robotic systems for the most demanding international space missions and MDA is hard at work to develop Canadarm3 to support hundreds of future missions to and from the International Gateway. We are incredibly proud of our partnership with the Canadian Space Agency, and we look forward to leveraging this technology and know-how into commercial space markets while creating jobs in Canada.”
