Abstract

This talk covers a career working in the Space Industry, from University to two start-up companies, Rocket Lab and Deimos, and the motivation behind it. This includes the start from zero on a research line at University with Electromagnetics on the Terahertz range followed by the set up of all communications infrastructure for LEO satellites in Spain and the North Pole, and New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere, that will allow the reduction of the launch cost for Small Satellites.
