Examples of some previous projects

Instrumentation Development

Participation in the development of the Engineering Bread Board model of a high precision, low frequency 3 axis magnetometer for ESA's Solar Orbiter mission. Embedded software development and testing (in C) for a Leon3 SPARC processor. Launch is scheduled for October 2018.

Test bench Design

Design of a test bench to perform reliability measurements of RF MEMS switches. Several interface boards were developed to measure the number of switching cycles and the evolution of the ON state resistance. All data was acquired using a PXI system and then processed using LabVIEW.

Embedded Systems

Embedded software development and testing for a electric vehicle charger that adheres to the standard "ZE Ready". This charge control software has been installed in hundreds of charging stations globally.

Linux and Android Development

Design and development of code to capture video and audio data from an external camera plugged into a Nexus 5 smartphone. The code was developed using C and Java alongside Android's NDK toolset. The system has been used by astronauts on-board the International Space Station.

Electrical Ground Support Equipment Systems

Development of an EGSE that communicates with a magnetometer instrument through a dedicated SpaceWire link. The developed EGSE LabVIEW software allows the visualisation and storage of data for further processing.

Power Supply Design

Design, development and testing of a switched-mode high power (300W) supply system for large passive RF imaging platform.
