NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has picked up the faint, ghostly glow of stars ejected from ancient galaxies that were gravitationally ripped apart several billion years ago. The mayhem happened 4 billion light-years away, inside an immense collection of nearly 500 galaxies nicknamed “Pandora’s Cluster,” also known as Abell 2744. The scattered stars are no longer bound to any one galaxy, and drift freely between galaxies in the cluster. By observing the light from th...

NASA and Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] have completed final assembly and testing of the Orion spacecraft. The spacecraft will remain inside NASA’s Launch Abort System Facility at Kennedy Space Center until it rolls to launch pad 37 in November. “An empty shell of a spacecraft arrived to Kennedy Space Center two years ago, and now we have a fully assembled Orion standing 72 feet tall,” said Michael Hawes Lockheed Martin Orion program manager. “We’re ready to lau...

Improved collision warnings for its Earth observation missions means ESA controllers can now take more efficient evasive action when satellites are threatened by space junk. ESA signed an agreement today with the US Strategic Command to improve data exchange between the organisations for supporting missions. The tie-up will see ESA receiving higher quality and more timely space information tailored to its needs in exchange for sharing more accurate positional information of its satellites....

A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket successfully launched the eighth Global Positioning System (GPS) IIF-8 satellite for the U.S. Air Force at 1:21 p.m. EDT today from Space Launch Complex-41. This is ULA's 12 th launch in 2014, and the 89 th successful launch since the company was formed in December 2006 . "ULA is honored to work with this world-class U.S. government and contractor mission team, and we are very proud to have delivered  the GPS IIF-8 satellite to orbit today on the ...

    Education

    Sep 08 – Oct 11:         PhD in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

                                        (High Frequency Electronics)

    (Submitted thesis in September 2011 and VIVA is scheduled on 4thNovember)

    Queens University Belfast, Belfast, UK.       

     

    Thesis Title: Investigate the Effect of Phase Conjugation and Time Reversal Techniques in Free Space and a Reverberant Environment at 2.4 GHz.

     

    The objective of the thesis is to demonstrate numerically (CST-MWS) and experimentally the temporal compression, spatial resolution and beam steering features of both time reversal and phase conjugation techniques in three different environments: free space, a partially reflecting space and a fully reflecting space at microwave frequency (2.4 GHz).

    Work Experience

    Jun 07 – Sep 07:          High Frequency Electronics Research group

    ECIT, Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, UK       

    A microstrip spiral antenna was designed in ADS by changing the number of turns and the thickness of the substrate and was tested on a Vector Network Analyser in the frequency range of 5 -15 GHz. The radiation pattern was measured in an anechoic chamber and its performance was reanalysed in CST-MWS.
