Ball Aerospace changes organizational structure, divides Civil and Operational Space business unit

BOULDER, Colo., 7 Jan. 2013. Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. officials have instituted an organizational structure change designed to position operating sectors for improved customer efficiency. 

Ball's Civil and Operational Space business unit is now divided into two separate business units: Civil Space and Technology led by Vice President and General Manager Jim Oschmann, and Operational Space led by Vice President and General Manager Cary Ludtke. 

Oschmann will spearhead Ball's science and technology development objectives for civil customers, while Ludtke will continue his leadership of company programs that include the nation's civil weather system, the Joint Polar Satellite System, and the Operational Land Imager. Company officials appointed Rob Freedman as vice president and general manager of Tactical Solutions, the business unit previously led by Oschmann.

In his new position, Oschmann is responsible for programs that include the James Webb Space Telescope, Green Propellant Infusion Mission, and Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution.

Ludtke is developing strategies to expand the company's commercial and international opportunities while overseeing existing programs, including WorldView-3, FalconEye, Sentinel, the Geostationary Environment Monitoring Spectrometer, and the Geostationary Ocean Color Imager II.
