Vicky Anderson

Senior Systems Engineer

I joined KISPE in 2018. My main activity at KISPE is supporting customers with the conceptual and detailed design of satellites, acting as part of the technical team to provide feedback on, refine and deliver their proposed implementations. 

I always wanted to to be an astronaut; and although I may never make it into space, I am proud to have things I have worked on up there!

I enjoy baking (the freezer is always well-stocked with cake and bread!) along with running, hiking and Crossfit (to balance off the baked goods!). I am a STEM ambassador and enjoy engaging with young people and passing on my passion for engineering and space!

My professional designations and accomplishments

I graduated from the University of Bath with a MEng in Electronics with Space Science and Technology. I supplemented my academic credentials with a Post Graduate Diploma in Systems Engineering for Defence Capability from Cranfield University (Shrivenham).

Prior to joining KISPE  I worked across the space and defence domains, starting my career as an Electronics Engineer before transitioning across to Systems Engineering. This has included working on safety-critical systems as well as designing, integrating and testing various onboard data handling units for satellites.

I am currently heavily involved in the Open Source Satellite Programme, applying Model-Based Systems Engineering to develop an all-new microsatellite design from a clean sheet of paper.

I am a member of the Institution of Engineeting and Technology (IET) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and have spoken about open source, systems engineering and space across a number of different forums, including at the Annual Systems Engineering Conference (2019), the Model Based Systems Engineering Conference (MBSE CON 2021) and at AstroAgency's SpaceBar.

How I contribute to the KISPE customer experience

I enjoy a challenge and love the fact that no two days at KISPE Space are the same!

There are opportunities to get right down into the weeds of a problem but there is also the need to be able to take a higher level, holistic view, which means being involved in a wide range of areas and topics.

So I get to learn a lot along the way which I can then apply to the next challenge!
