    CV

    NATIONALITY: British

    YEAR OF BIRTH: 1978

    QUALIFICATIONS: 2005, MSc Space Mission Analysis and Design, Glasgow University, UK

    2000, BSc (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering, Glasgow University, UK

     

    CAREER SUMMARY:

    Jan 2006 - Present Telespazio Vega - Paradigm Services – Astrium Services GC, Hawthorn Site, Wiltshire, UK

    Role involves performing all elements of flight dynamics, orbit analysis and general tasking and scheduling for the Skynet 4/5 E3000 constellation of military/commercial communications satellites. High level of responsibility is required due to potentially serious nature of loss of service. Activities performed include orbit determination and propagation, manoeuvre (EWSK/NSSK, repositioning, graveyarding) and events planning (eclipses, sensor inhibitions etc), tasking and scheduling of all spacecraft activities, liaising with military personnel, the user segment, high-level management and frequently, foreign visitors.

    Responsibility for frequent maintenance and upgrading of software elements used within the mission support team. In particular the coding, documentation, integration and testing of the in-house designed task generator software (Taskgen) relied heavily upon for all daily tasking and scheduling activities.

    Trend analysis and proactive steps are also a key element of the work. Involves analysis of thruster performance, manoeuvre efficiency, battery health, and general thermal behaviour.

    Performed lectures on spacecraft operations to university classes at Glasgow and Cranfield Universities as well as doing similar in the annual STEM day for school students at the Royal Institution, London.

    Also, acts as assistant to the frequency coordination manager in frequency allocation requests and applications (APIs, CRCs etc).

    2004 - 2005 Glasgow University, UK

    MSc in Space Mission Analysis and Design

    Main Subjects: Course consisted of lectures on spacecraft systems, space mission design, advanced propulsion techniques, ground system design and spaceflight dynamics amongst others. Course of lectures from multi-disciplinary and high level ESA personnel.

    Group Design Project: Involved two group projects designing a lunar net lander and a Europa sample return mission. Assumed the role for the design of the full communications subsystem in both projects.

    Research Thesis: A three month solo project was carried out into the design of an autonomous planetary rover utilising behavioural/causal science.

    1996 – 2000 Glasgow University, UK

    BEng in Aeronautical Engineering - Grade 2:1

     

    RELEVANT EXPERIENCE:

    Satellite Operations & Mission Planning: Over FOURTEENyears experience in all aspects of geostationary mission operations involving predominantly mission support and flight dynamics (see above). Experience also gained in pre-launch and LEOP operations of several satellites and also in frequency/spectrum allocation policies and procedures.

    Mission Design: Experience through Master’s thesis studies. Focussing on "sample return" missions to Europa, activities included the study of relevant theory, investigation into existing terrestrial technologies and their application to space missions, further design development and communications analyses.

     

    RELATED INTERESTS:

    Space Weather: Since commencing work on Skynet, a developing interest in space weather phenomenon and related satellite effects.

    Programming/Scripting Languages: Having assumed control of the maintenance of the TaskGen software a developed interest in programming and specifically VBA/VB6.
