Kenneth Freeman began his career at NASA Ames Research Center working in local and wide area networking, network research and space communications, playing major roles in several engineering and research projects. He then led at team to implement NASA’s Security Operations Center (SOC), building a cyber-security operations center that is the nerve center for the detection and monitoring information security incidents for NASA. He is now leading the Secure Airspace Technology Group, which develops and demonstrates capabilities, for secure data integrity, resiliency, and information privacy for national airspace environments.
Kenneth Freeman is also the Principal Investigator for the Data & Reasoning Fabric (DRF) Activity. DRF is envisioned to enable the growth of future flight by enabling an ecosystem of data and AI-based decision support tools (reasoning) to enable the transportation of people and cargo to places previously not served or underserved by aviation.
