Thomas A. Gray, the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command liaison to the Combined Arms Center and Army University, will deliver a presentation entitled “The Domain of Space and National Security.”
    “In his presentation and discussion, Mr. Gray will discuss operations in the space domain and how this domain presents unique challenges and opportunities in the national security arena,” said Rod Cox, Simons Center program director. “To date, we haven’t covered this topic in our brown-bag lecture series, so we’re expecting it to generate some lively discussion and questions from everyone.”
    Gray serves as the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command’s liaison officer to CAC and Army University with responsibility for the integration of space knowledge and education across various U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, joint and other service schools, including CGSC. A retired U.S. Army officer, Gray was one of the first officers selected and designated as a space operations officer. He served in Army Space Command, the Space and Missile Defense Lab, and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command’s Directorate of Combat Development. He is qualified as a Level 3 Space Professional of the U.S. Army Civilian Space Cadre, holds the space operations officer designation 3Y, and has earned the U.S. Army Master Space Badge. Gray holds a bachelor’s degree from New Hampshire College and earned a master’s from Central Michigan University.
