Expert in RF and Microwave Engineering for the Aerospace and Defence Sector
Expert ID: 732464 United Kingdom
He is also an expert in the design of multi-band metamaterial-based devices. He has designed microwave circuits using most types of planar transmission-lines including microstrip, coplanar waveguide, stripline, air-suspended stripline, substrate integrated waveguide, etc. depending on the specifications and the application.
Expert has 6 years of experience in space hardware development. He has worked through and understands the full develoment cycle of microwave devices and subsystems for space platforms from design de-risking activities, through PDR, CDR,MRR and TRR. He is very experienced in the required documentation needed for space hardware and wrote Test Specifications, Requirements Verification Procedures, and performed various analyses such as FMECA, Reliability Worst Case and Thermal Analysis.
He is an expert in the design of high-power waveguide components. He produced designs for defense and space applications ranging from C-Band to Ka-Band. These designs include cross-guide, broadside and hybrid couplers, E and H-Plane Tees, Low and High Power load terminations, in-line and orthogonal waveguide-to-coaxial transitions, optimized bends.Moreover, he designed high-power (ferrite-based) circulators and isolators at C-Band and X-Band.
Expert has 13 years of RF/ microwave sub-system design. He developed receivers, upconverters, STALO's for radar and radiometer systems, broadband telemetry transmitters and receivers for UAV's ans sounding rockets as well as subsystems for electronic warfare equipment. He has the expertise to take top-level system requirements and translate them into subsystem and block-level requirements for detailed design and development.
