    PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

    Managing teams of up to 20 engineers on multiple satellite programmes I have been working as a Specialist Engineer at the Antenna Centre of Competence for EADS Astrium in Stevenage.  I am responsible for the schedule and cost management throughout the programme life cycle. I am aiming towards the level of Technical Expert within the next couple of years

    QUALIFICATIONS

    MSc : Advanced Aerospace Materials, Cranfield University.

    BEng Hons : 2:1, Manufacturing Systems, University of the West of England

    PATENT

    I am the named inventor on a European Patent application for an Aerospace high-pressure pneumatic flexible coupling.

    AWARDS

    I won the prestigious EADS Astrium award for the ‘Great Innovator’ at the 2013 end of year company award ceremony. I am currently a finalist in the Airbus Hall of Fame awards for 2014.

    PAPER

    Following some European Space Agency (ESA) funded R & D work, I was invited to write and present a paper at the annual Antenna Conference at the ESA Headquarters in the Netherlands

    3D PRINTING

    In 2007 I worked on the first ever Astrium project which introduced 3D Additive Layer Manufacturing of metals into the company. Seven years later I am one of the leading experts within the company.

    CHARITY

    Over the last 5 years I have completed many charity cycles rides for the British Heart Foundation. In 2013 I completed the 260 Mile London to Paris ride. I was in the top 5% fund raisers for ‘Justgiving’ last year

    CURRENT EMPLOYMENT

    Astrium – Antenna Group (April 04 – Present), Mechanical Specialist Engineer

    Having completed many successful projects at Astrium, I now take a role of overseeing projects as a peer, I also lead the Antenna groups R & D activities.

    AMU1– I am working with colleagues in Germany who have developed a Beam Forming Network that illuminates a simple parabolic reflector, my role is to accommodate this BFN onto the spacecraft.

    Express AM7 and Eutelsat E3B– Different customers, but very similar products, which consists of side deployable Antenna Technology. Both of these use the highly successful low cost Antenna mechanical support structure, as well as some very high power Antennas that require careful design of the thermal control systems.

    SES6 – Consisting of both Gregorian and single offset antennas this spacecraft contains two new technologies.  The first of these is a large feed support structure that has been designed to be highly cost efficient, the other is a combined C band diplexing network. 

    Astra 2EFG & 5B - I was given the opportunity to work on this major project as the Antenna Responsible Engineer from the customisation phase onwards. This project, whilst not as technically challenging as other project represents a significant planning challenge. On the Astra 5B spacecraft one Antenna was subject to an Engineering Model due to the innovative design of the Ka multi layered feed chain technology.

    Eutlesat Atlantic Bird 7 Antennas - I commenced work on Atlantic Bird 7 at the early customisation phase of the project. This relatively simple project consisting of three feed chains is now in operational orbit.

    Express AM4 Side Deployable Antennas  -  Working from the customisation phase through to the AIT phase I was the Antenna Responsible Engineer for the 4 Side Deployable Feed Chain Assemblies for this spacecraft. These were the first side deployable antennas mounted between the 2nd and 3rd floor that the Antenna group had produced. Unfortunately due to a launch anomaly AM4R is currently in AIT.

    Avanti Hylas Ka MFA - I commenced work on the all new Hylas Ka band Multi Feed Array (MFA) at the end of the customisation phase and followed the project through the detailed design, manufacturing and test phases before delivery to ISRO. This was the first flight Ka band equipment designed and built by the Antenna group in Astrium Stevenage

    Astra 1M Antennas - This project was to design, manufacture and test three antennas. Working as the Mechanical Responsible Engineer for the feed chain assemblies, I coordinated the RF, Stress, Thermal and Manufacturing disciplines throughout the project. The hardware is now in orbit and fully operational.

    Steerable Antennas & Active Receive Antenna - I supported the Mechanical Responsible Engineer during the manufacturing phase and was responsible for the Thermal Balance testing at Stevenage and assisted with setting up the RF range testing. 

    Arabsat IV - I supported the Mechanical Responsible Engineer during the detailed design phase and was responsible for the thermal vacuum testing at IABG and the subsequent vibration testing at CASA.

    Deployable Boom R & D project - I spent three months working on a feasibility study for long (2.5 to 4.0 Metre) hinged deployable boom for Antenna reflectors. The results of the study were presented to the spacecraft team.

    PREVIOUS EMPLOYMNET 

    Avica – Meggitt Aerospace Group (Jan 99 to March 04), Senior Project Engineer

    The company designs and manufactures Aerospace (and some Space) pneumatic and hydraulic ducting systems for various applications. The scope of work typically included system design and integration, system level stress and kinematic analysis, detailed stress analysis, flow analysis, thermal analysis and support to test. During my employment I worked on various projects and briefly include:-

    Aermacchi M346 trainer aircraft, Ariane 5 exhaust lines, Bombardier DB100 (Challenger 300), Saab Jas 39 EBS Grippen, Fairchild Dornier 428 Jet, AS977 Engine Nacelle ducting.

    Twiflex (May 97 to Dec 98), Design Engineer/Project Manger

    During this employment, my major project undertaken was as Project Manager for a £400K order of 28 calliper disc brakes for a gold mine in South Africa. This the largest disc brake ever manufactured by Twiflex, each weighing ¾ ton. The timescales for this project were very demanding, but were achieved.

    Nokia, Thermatool and Computer Aid Services, (Contract work July 96 to May 97)

    I worked for the above mentioned companies on short term contracts.
