Ben Hudson

Graduate Systems Engineer

I support systems engineering activities on our customer's programmes, primarily working on the Open Source Satellite Programme and developing KISPE's attitude and orbit control systems (AOCS) capabilities.

I am student at the University of Southampton, studying for an MEng in Aeronautics and Astronautics with a specialisation in spacecraft engineering.

Designing and building spacecraft has been my goal for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to now be working on real space systems.

Outside of work and studying, I love to swim, box and read fiction. I have also played rugby in the past.

My professional designations and accomplishments

I have completed three years of my four-year, Integrated Masters degree and I am on track to achieve a 1:1 honours.

In 2020 I presented at the UK Student Space Conference in Birmingham, winning Airbus' Student Presentation Competition for my University project: Design of a Space Mission to Enhance the Event Horizon Telescope.

I originally joined the KISPE team in 2019 as an Intern, under the UK Space Agency's Space Placements in Industry (SPIN) scheme. I was delighted to be back at KISPE again for my industrial placement year returning to University later this year to complete my Masters degree. I will be joining KISPE as a permanent member of the team in Summer 2022.

How I contribute to the KISPE customer experience

I am keen to make a positive contribution to the space industry and to further the ways in which humanity can utilise and explore space.

I work in a conscientious manner, diligently completing tasks to progress customer's programmes.
