I am happy to share a link to my latest journal article scrutinizing the systems engineering methodologies and approaches of formulating and implementing space missions. A survey of space mission architecture and system actualisation methodologies This research seeks to improve space mission actualization methodologies by examining non-traditional emerging trends in space systems engineering practices. Further, we […]Read more "Space Systems Actualization"
Ascending to the terminal phase-8 of the proposed Kenya space sector road-map would render Kenya a pacesetter on the global space technology scene. Only a handful of nations unequivocally belong to this exclusive club. They are United States, Russia, and China. Closely behind are nations and organizations that have attained the capabilities described in phase-7. […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 7 & 8"
After a protracted process stretching beyond 5 years, the African Union (AU) Space Working Group delivered the African Space Policy document late last year (African Space Strategy V10_1). This document was subsequently adopted by African education, science and technology ministers and is expected to be approved by the AU Heads of States Summit in January 2016. This is […]Read more "African Space Policy"
The on-orbit validation of domestically developed space technology accomplished in Phase 4 will need to be followed by entrenchment of this achieved proficiency in a domestic cutting-edge space technology manufacturing base. In doing so, Kenya will start to climb one level on the space technology capability hierarchy pyramid to become a Spacecraft Manufacturer. This significant […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 5 & 6"
