In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage. By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business. Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for le...

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 ...

    CV

    Summary

     

    Over 10 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and test of radiofrequency and power conversion equipment for communication satellite payloads, ranging L to Ka band.

    The common denominator of all programs where I have participated as technical or program manager is the high content of new development designs and processes. As such, I have dealt with high risk program plans from the technical and programmatic points of view. Wide experience in risk management, problem solving and non-conformance processes.

    Along my career, I have progressed from support electrical engineer tasks to technical manager positions, and later on I shifted to project manager responsibilities.

     

    Experience

     

    Project Manager -- November 2009 – Present

     

    As a technically oriented Project Manager of several new development programs for space applications, my main responsibilities are leading the team all along program execution, to meet all target requirements (performance, quality, cost and schedule). My role also includes customer and subcontractor interface and negotiation.

     

    ·        2010-2013 Development program of Ku and Ka LNAs and Downconverters (4 equipment)

    ·        2012-2013 Development program of 40W DC/DC converter.

    ·        2012-2013 Development program of highly stable and low phase noise X-band DRO.

    ·        2009-2010 X-Band and Ku-Band passive RF equipment. New developments.

     

    I am also regularly involved in the preparation of proposals for new contract opportunities.

     

    Technical Manager -- June 2004 – December 2012

     

    Technical Manager of several programs for space applications. I was in charge of all technical aspects of the equipment from design, manufacturing and test, as well as assessing technical, cost and schedule risks and trade-offs along the program. Owner of all technical related problems and accountable for its analysis and resolution. Design and test engineering team leader as well as customer and subcontractor technical interface.

     

    ·        2009-2012 Technical manager for the development of family of DC/DC converters ranging 1W to 40W for 28V up to 100V spacecraft buses.

    ·        2005-2009 Technical manager for commercial communication satellites with more than 900 L band flight LNAs delivered.

    ·        2004-2005 Technical manager for earth observation program SMOS phase C/D L band radiometer.

     


    Electrical Engineer -- December 2002 – June 2004

     

    Electrical engineer in the Space and Microwave business unit of Mier Comunicaciones. Devoted to the development of a L-band (1.5GHz) radiometer in the frame of the SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity) project of the European Space Agency. Such equipment includes several RF microelectronic circuits self-designed in GaAs (MIXER, LNA, RF and IF amplifiers, ADC and a multiplexer), as well as other modules with discrete components (variable attenuator, power detector, supply and signal filters, matching networks, among others). In this position, most of my activities were focused in the flight production of custom designed MMICs (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) and corresponding MHICs (Microwave Hybrid Integrated Circuit). I spent several periods at foundry and packaging subcontractor premises dealing with technical and test issues.

     

    RF engineer trainee -- September 2001 – December 2002

     

    Worked part-time in the broadcasting R+D department of Mier Comunicaciones as RF engineer trainee. Focused on analogue TV broadcasting, DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting), DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) and GSM base stations. During that period I was involved in the design, prototyping and test of several circuits: frequency synthesizer in the UHF band (500-900MHz) for DVB, PLL’s, radiofrequency amplifiers (0-1.5GHz), analogue filters, frequency doublers, power dividers and others.
