Jax Tech | Tech of Manufacturing - GIS Data, Advanced Automation, & Outer Space!

It's time to get back together and learn, meet, and have fun with fellow technologists and innovators!

Our last speaking event of 2021 is back at MOSH with our Advanced Manufacturing in Jax edition on December 9th. This time we are talking about the technology that goes into manufacturing including the use of Advanced GIS data and filters in site selection, how to build out cutting edge automation in a modern facility, and then on to how to build solar panels and other tech for outer space!

As always, we are starting things off with a networking happy hour, live music, and wrapping it up with a rooftop DJ party overlooking downtown Jacksonville.

Featured Speakers:

Andrew Rush
President and COO, Redwire Space

One of Jacksonville's newest companies to ring the bell at the NYSE also recently deployed solar panels to the international space station, both of which are awesome! Andrew will share some of the innovative work going on here in Jax, including solving hardcore manufacturing problems like how to build larger solar panels in space and deploy scientific payloads to experiment in zero gravity.
And this is happening in Jax!?!
...gotta hear more about this!

Nathan Fabrick
VP of Corporate Development, National Land Realty

The technology behind advanced manufacturing begins with site selection. How can you use advanced GIS data, filters, layers, and forward looking predictive analytics to be sure you are building in the right place? Hear from Nathan on how they dig through the data to find strategic advantages in site selection.

Matt Chang
Engineering Expert, Chang Industrial

How can Jacksonville adopt more cutting edge manufacturing and industrial automation? Matt can share deep insights from his extensive experience, having designed the downtown autonomous vehicle corridor to building the new cutting edge Keurig automated facilities. Hear how/where the best industrial automation is happening and how it all works from an industry expert.

After the sessions join us for a DJ party and hanging out with great people on the MOSH rooftop. Bartenders from the Volstead (www.thevolsteadjax.com) will be joining us as usual to keep the afterparty lively.
