Vicky Anderson

Senior Systems Engineer

I am a Senior Systems Engineer, working on a range of activities across the system lifecycle including conceptual and detailed design, assembly, integration and testing as well as acting as a technical point of contact.

My work supports both the customer programmes and internal projects. I am heavily involved in the Next Generation Microsatellite Platform / Open Source Satellite Programme, applying Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to develop an all-new microsatellite design from a clean sheet of paper.

My professional background:

I joined the company in 2018. 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.

Academically I have an MEng in Electronics with Space Science and Technology from the University of Bath as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Systems Engineering for Defence Capability from Cranfield University (Shrivenham).

I am a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). Within INCOSE I am on the MBSE Interest Group Committee and involved in a number of the workstreams.

I have spoken about, and generated papers on open source, systems engineering and space across a number of different forums, including the Annual Systems Engineering Conference (2019), the Model Based Systems Engineering Conference (MBSE CON 2021) and at AstroAgency's SpaceBar.

Get in touch with me to talk about:

  • Model Based┬áSystems Engineering
  • System Design
  • Requirements Capture, Validation and Verification
  • Satellite Integration and Testing
  • Open Source Development
  • Research and Development

What I enjoy doing:

In my spare time, I enjoy baking (the freezer is always well-stocked with cake and bread!) along with running and hiking to balance off the baked goods! I have also started a foray into creative writing and harbour ambitions of writing a book. I am a STEM ambassador and enjoy engaging with young people and passing on my passion for engineering and space!
