A Behind-the-scenes look at the Artemis I Mission

Corey BrookerCorey Brooker - Lockheed Martin Space

Corey Brooker has been working on the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) within the Commercial Civil Space Line of Business at Lockheed Martin Space for the past 15 years.  He is currently the Senior Systems Manager for Orion’s Systems Environments and Specialty Engineering. 

Systems Environments includes: Aerosciences (ascent & reentry aerodynamics, purge & vent, and plume impingement); Thermal analysis for Active and Passive thermal control systems; and the Loads & Dynamics analysis for events such as ascent, acoustics, aborts, separation, docking, control, descent and landing.  Specialty area includes: Reliability & Maintainability; Electromagnetic Compatibility and Interference; Radiation; and Micrometeorite and Orbital Debris analyses.

Corey's previous role on Orion included leading the Launch Vehicle Integration efforts between Orion and the Space Launch System (SLS) for both Artemis-1 and Artemis-2.  He lead the technical management for the Orion Exploration Flight Test-1 between LM and United Launch Alliance.

He spent over 12 years on Loads & Dynamics analysis for the launch vehicle development and production flights on the Atlas V and Delta IV evolved expendable launch vehicles.  He has been a part of 4 Orion missions (PA-1, EFT-1, AA-2, and Artemis I), 10 Delta IV and 11 Atlas V successful mission flights.

Corey holds a bachelor’s (1994) and master’s degree (1995) in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan.
