Meet The Team
The story behind the founding of OrionBlockSystems (OBS) started with Mohammad A. Edaibat. Mohammad, the founder and CEO of OBS, is an Astrounatical and Space Systems Engineer working as a senior Guidance Navigation and Control Engineer designing spacecraft intended for deep space missions. Mohammad is also a part time researcher at the Johns Hopkins University – Applied Physics Laboratory where he researches the feasibility and design of a potential future mission that will travel outside of our solar system. The founder and co-founders of OBS have been fascinated by the rise and interest of Blockchain technology for years now. It wasn’t long before it became obvious that the decentralization that Blockchain technology offers will revolutionize the world exactly as the Internet did back in the 1990’s. The company was founded with a very bold vision to become a world leader in Blockchain cybersecurity systems. In addition to the founder, some of the co-founders are also space system engineers and some have been involved in Blockchain since its early stages- including investing in Bitcoin back in 2011.
