Promotion: Software Development Manager

Over the past 8 months I’ve gradually taken over responsibility for our Ground & Control segment here at Spaceflight Industries, making sure we’re on-track to support our upcoming launch. Apparently I worked myself into a new role. Today I was promoted to Software Development Manager over Ground & Control.

It’s been insanely exciting watching our next-generation ground systems come online. The team is doing some highly innovative and industry-leading work on automated satellite commanding, whole-constellation planning, ultra-low-latency telemetry propagation, distributed system monitoring & alerting, and more.¬†We learned a ton from our first iteration that is operating Pathfinder-1 and we have significantly improved on it now that we better understand the problem space1.

I’m stoked to be a part of this team as we prepare for Global-1 and beyond!
