Engineers have been at Russia's Plesetsk launch site for a month now, ticking off the jobs on the 'to do' list so that the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite is fit and ready for liftoff on 13 October. With the satellite now fuelled, the team has passed another milestone. Fuelling a satellite is a particularly delicate operation. Hydrazine is extremely toxic so only a few specialists wearing 'scape' suits remain in the cleanroom. Once filled with 82 kg of hydrazine, the satellite was weighed...

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope helped an international team of astronomers find that an unusual object in the asteroid belt is, in fact, two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. These include a bright halo of material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust. Hubble was used to image the asteroid, designated 300163 (2006 VW139), in September 2016 just before the asteroid made its closest approach to the Sun. Hubble’s crisp images revealed that it was actual...

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    SECURITY CLEARANCE:  Active Top Secret Clearance since October 2010

     

    PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE SUMMARY:  My 12 year overall career has been in the space/satellite operations field. I have operated and maintained numerous NASA and military satellite platforms (communications/environmental research/deep space exploratory). As a System Program Analyst (current position) I ensure that the Space Surveillance Network (SSN) message traffic that flows in and out of the Space Defense Operations Center (SPADOC) has the correct classification levels, resolve anomalous situations involving message traffic, write discrepancy reports on faulty equipment or anomalous situations, and resolve space related workstation issues that squadron personnel use perform mission related tasks. As a Space System Analyst (prior position) I was the Subject Matter Expert on all Space Operations, Space and Ground Sensor Operations, and Joint Military Space Operations research and analysis. Also assisted in providing research and analysis on future encryption and decryption type systems that would provide space interoperability in future satellite constellations and systems. As a Principal Mission Manager (prior position) I was in charge of procedure development, assisted on Integration and Testing (I&T) of the NASA environmental satellite, tested new ground system software, and tested the compatibilities between remote ground stations and space networks utilized for the mission. As an Operation Chief (prior position) I was in charge of facilitating problem isolation, troubleshooting, and restoring voice and data flow to the DSN (Deep Space Network) user community. Generated daily, weekly and monthly reports required to maintain a successful and error-free operational environment. As a Duty Satellite Manager I executed TT&C and first-level alarm analysis of on-orbit UFO (UHF Follow-On) and FLTSAT (Fleet Satellite Communication System). Performed anomaly notifications and submitted required reports. Maintained and operated associated ground system equipment, as well as first-level equipment troubleshooting and problem resolution. Performed mission planning and satellite contact scheduling for multiple satellite constellations. Supervisor to multiple satellite ground station detachment personnel and ensured mission success. My prior Air Force space career consists of me holding the position of Data System Operator in which I processed and notified leadership of space-based Infrared (IR) missile events using the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS).  Another position held in the Air Force was as a Space System Operator in which I operated and maintained the Defense Satellite Communication System (DSCS) constellation.
