Featuring Chris Longpre, senior quality manager, Abbott

Since the issuance of MDD and AIMDD certificates will cease in May 2020, medical device manufacturers must act during this transition period to update their technical documentation and processes in order to meet the new MDR requirements.

Space: mobile satellites

Matt Desch, CEO, Iridium Communications

Matt talks about the space industry and the specific company he's been leading for the last decade.
