Experience

  • United Kingdom, Sheffield

    at Project Sunbyte

    October 2018 - January 2020

    Sheffield

    Attitude Determination and Control Systems Team Leader:  To develop a low-cost telescope system capable of being lifted by a high altitude balloon out of the thick, distorting atmosphere of the troposphere to take high quality full disk images of the Sun.  Designed real time sun detecting algorithm utilizing real time image processing.  Designed real time tracking systems controlling two motors to steer and point the telescope towards Sun disk.  Designed general coding structure combining all subsystems: optics, communications, image processing and Sun’s tracking  Control algorithms such as image processing, PID motor control, image acquisitions fully deployed on embedded microprocessors platforms such as into Raspberry pi and Arduino microprocessors,  Payload successfully passed the integration tests required and conducted at National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) facilities in Texas, USA.
