2 years at Spaceflight Industries

Today is my 2-year anniversary at Spaceflight Industries.

Coincidentally today I am operating as an Engineering Lead for our 4th mission rehearsal in preparation for commanding Global-1 when it launches in a few months. In the last 18 months my team has built Gemini, a ground & control system, from the ground up (pun intended) to task a 20+ earth-imaging satellite constellation from our groundstations around the world. The system provides satellite operators with real-time telemetry on the state of the spacecraft during a contact pass.

It’s amazing to think about what we’ve accomplished since I’ve been here and I’m excited what the next several months have in store!
