Vice president engineering
Jerry leads AMSAT’s all-volunteer Engineering Team of amateur radio satellite enthusiasts and professionals based in the U.S.
Following AMSAT’s first-ever CubeSats, a series of five 1U satellites known as “Fox-1”, AMSAT’S “GOLF” series of 3U CubeSats will reach for much higher orbits and wider radio coverage footprints, also hosting STEM education payloads.
AMSAT’S ASCENT program provides opportunities for independent open source development of new amateur radio satellite communications to be part of future GOLF, Fox Plus, and subsequent satellites.
Assistant Vice President, Engineering
Jonathan Brandenburg, KF5IDY, is AMSAT’s new Assistant Vice President — Engineering. Jonathan oversees a new program tentatively named “Fox Plus.”
The popular Fox-1 series of 1U LEO CubeSats host student STEM experiments from Vanderbilt University, Penn State Erie, Virginia Tech, and the University of Iowa.
Fox Plus provides a refresh of the presence of LEO ‘Easy-Sat’ type communications, carrying student STEM experiments and adding AMSAT radio experiments as well.
Jonathan intends to target frequent deliveries of Fox Plus CubeSats into orbit, and wide use of open-source in the program.
