John Moberly serves as the president of LeoLabs Federal, a commercial provider of radar tracking services for objects in low-Earth orbit.

The company says on its website that it offers tracking, monitoring, collision avoidance, launch and space domain awareness solutions to clients in the growing LEO economy.

In his role, Moberly leads the company’s development of solutions for the contested space domain. He brings expertise in technical radar development, space applications, space protection, federal programming, budgeting and acquisition, LeoLabs said.

The company said that Moberly aims to unburden the national security community of the risks of spaceflight, allowing it to focus on missions such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

Before joining LeoLabs in April 2021, Moberly served as the director of space and intelligence programs at Arete Associates, a science and engineering company that worked with the federal defense and intelligence communities.

Arete worked on algorithms for signature detection and artificial intelligence applications for geospatial intelligence. According to LeoLabs, Moberly supported the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Space Development Agency during his time at Arete.

Moberly also had brief stints at Hughes Network Systems, where he worked on networking and satellite communications, as well as General Dynamics Mission Systems, where he led business development for classified space and intelligence programs, according to his LinkedIn profile.
