Vice president engineering
Jerry leads AMSAT’s all-volunteer Engineering Team, amateur radio satellite enthusiasts and professionals based in the U.S.
The Fox-1 series of 1U LEO CubeSats was very popular with our educational partners, hosting student STEM experiments from Vanderbilt University, Penn State Erie, Virginia Tech, and the University of Iowa.
AMSAT’S GOLF series of 3U CubeSats will reach for much higher orbits, also hosting STEM education payloads.
Paul leads AMSAT’s defense and enhancement of the Amateur Satellite Service regulations, monitoring and responding to FCC’s Part 97 Amateur rule changes proposals. AMSAT’s work benefits all CubeSat teams seeking license under FCC Part 97 for satellites carrying amateur radio.
At the forefront are the effects that newly proposed orbital debris mitigation rules have on typically low-budget educational and experimental CubeSat missions.
vice president operations
Drew leads AMSAT’s team of command stations and is an International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Satellite Coordination Committee member.
IARU coordination is essential to worldwide sharing of limited Amateur Satellite Service frequency bands. The numerous CubeSat missions we all enjoy crowd the band allocations, making coordination essential in minimizing interference.
