Ever wondered what it would be like to work in our Network Operation Centre? Our NOC Controller (and part-time photographer!), Josh Kennedy, discusses his passion for satellite networks and why getting a job in Inmarsat was “a dream come true” in our latest episode of Space Bytes.
Who knew that a passion for LEGO as a child would lead to a career in space? Meet Jeremiah Hsu, one of our Payload Engineers for our European Aviation Network satellite. He is responsible for the communications hardware and radio equipment on the spacecraft that will power inflight Wi-Fi for passengers flying over Europe. And he’s pretty good at paddle boarding too!
Neville Fenn is part of the Inmarsat Flight Dynamics' team. He talks about the importance of time in his work and play and how one second can make all the difference to the coordination of a satellite in geostationary orbit. If you're interested in a space industry career Neville also shares a few words of wisdom!
Meet Eva Gonzalez, Inmarsat's Manager of Advanced Payloads Projects. She grew up looking towards the stars and her passion for space led to a career working in the industry. Discover more about her job and love of satellites in the second instalment of Space Bytes - Inside Inmarsat.
In the second series of Space Bytes, we take a look inside Inmarsat at the work our talented scientists and engineers are doing. In the first episode meet Flight Dynamics Engineer Jenny Kyan, who explains more about her job looking after our constellation of satellites in geostationary orbit.
It’s been described by the BBC as one of the top five control rooms of all times. Watch the last episode in the current series of Space Bytes to find out more about the ‘nerve centre’ of Inmarsat - the Network Operations Centre.
Each of our Inmarsat-5 satellites lights up around a third of the globe and uses Boeing’s largest satellite platform. But what is it?
John Burley, Inmarsat’s Space Analyst, explains how long a Global Xpress satellite lasts, what a satellite graveyard is and where to find one, in our latest episode of Space Bytes.
Each of our Inmarsat-5 satellites is about the height of a double decker bus and has a wingspan similar to a Boeing 737, but how much do they weigh?
1,100+ active satellites in orbit and millions of pieces of space junk could cause catastrophic damage. So why don’t satellites crash?
Ever wondered how satellites are launched? We explain it all in the first of our new video series called Space Bytes.
