I've been working on several interesting projects. Here's a list of the few that I am still involved in, one way or another.
You might also be interested in the software projects of mine. All my non-proprietary software is on github. According to my Stack Overflow tags, I mostly do Python and that's what most of my programs are written in.
I also design printed circuit boards, mainly for the projects listed here. All my designs are on my Upverter page.
- University of Southampton Small Satellite - this is the first cubesat project at the University of Southampton. It builds on my MEng BLAST project, and is entirely an initiative of myself and a fellow PhD colleague of mine. We have managed to convince the University to fund the initial development and start several student projects to provide the workforce. We have made amazing advancements in just two years that the project has been in existence and we get a lot of interest from all across the University. I am really looking forward to seeing what will happen in the future.
- DIYROV - in our leisure, my brother and I have built a remotely-operated (ROV) underwater vehicle, i.e. a small submarine that is operated through an umbilical tether. Even though not as complex as the UoS3 cubesat, for example, it was still a fun thing to do and a good learning experience. In particular, because I was able to develop all the software and electronics for the ROV.
- BLAST - Balloon Launched Android Satellite Test - Ever dreamed of making your own satellite? I have and have never given up on the idea, I even managed to propose my own final year project concerned with building a prototype satellite using consumer electronics to reduce the cost of such missions. This project has now funded a basis for a follow-up, the UoS3 (University of Southampton Small Satellite) in which we're building a flight model of a CubeSat.
- SEPS - Spherical EUV Plasma Sensor - I have had the pleasure to work at an European Space Agency establishment, the European Space Research and Technology Centre, at the calibration of this novel scientific instrument. Other than being a truly enjoyable time of my life it was also a great learning experience.
- Robotics Group in RAL SPACE - I took part in several very interesting projects while working at RAL, including simulating cameras that are now flying aboard the International Space Station. I am still involved in system studies of a small satellite mission that would demonstrate autonomous docking of small spacecraft.
