  • I perform mission operations on five NASA satellites.

  • I build hardware and software systems that keep our country safe.

  • I develop future rocket technologies.

  • I’m a Space Weather Forecaster.

  • I analyze the orbits of our satellites.

  • I manage intellect.

  • I’m a Flight Controller for NASA spacecraft.

  • Exploration. Pushing the boundaries of where humans go.

  • That was what I found really exciting.

  • My role specifically is to make sure that our satellite fleet is in proper orbits

  • and in good health and can do any type of maneuvers that we need to do.

  • Were talking in the thousands of objects up there including satellites

  • and also debris. So, that’s one of my responsibilities is to check where our

  • satellite is with respect to other objects that are in our neighborhood.

  • The role that I play within the company I feel is well appreciated and compensated.

  • and also allows me the ability to kind of pursue my life outside of the workplace

  • which is definitely something I appreciate.

  • Colorado offers a number of opportunities for students studying

  • aerospace engineering or planetary science.

  • I command satellites. That means that if there are any passes that come up

  • I need to be there sending commands, doing planning

  • Just making sure that everything is okay on the spacecraft.

  • Jake will send commands to the spacecraft that I request. He gives me notification of

  • things that are going on so I can evaluate the health and safety of the spacecraft.

  • To think about the fact that while I am controlling a spacecraft that the spacecraft

  • is in space doing the stuff that I’m asking it to do.

  • And I get to apply everything that I learned in college into this real tangible thing

  • and it’s a job like anyone else’s except cooler.

  • It’s always a good conversation starter when you sayHey I commanded a

  • billion dollar spacecraft from Ball and NASA in my spare time when I’m bored.”

  • One of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me is seeing a rocket launch

  • off of that launch pad because it actually worked.

  • Launch Announcer: liftoff of the United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket.

  • This is a part of you. This is something that has come out of your own brain and

  • you create something and then you see it work towards this amazing end product,

  • which is a rocket launch and ultimately a satellite orbiting Earth.

  • This is an Atlas Rocket with an RD180 engine. It uses liquid oxygen

  • and RP-1 propellant to put satellites into space.

  • I like to do a lot of outdoor activities including rock climbing, playing sports

  • so, you work hard and then you play hard.

  • As long as you are constantly developing new skills, as long as you constantly

  • want to get better at what you do, youre gonna succeed in this business

  • whether youre a man or a woman.

  • Anyone has a shot at this industry. It doesn’t matter if you're male or female

  • black or white, Hispanic or of a minority group.

  • Just by virtue of you putting in the hard work I think that youll reap

  • a return on your investment.

  • Actually I have a business degree background but while in the US Navy

  • I did systems engineering and some analytical work and ironically

  • those were some of the same jobs that Northrop Grumman was looking to hire.

  • We have a wide range of different programs and different projects

  • that we work with from working with ships and working with airplanes

  • to working with some high-end computer hardware and software.

  • Ultimately we are working for the military professional men and women that are out

  • in the field every day in harms way.

  • I really enjoy what I do and the people that I do it for.

  • I’m a Space Weather Forecaster.

  • The events from the Sun; how it interacts with our Earth

  • interplanetary space. And all this activity that is going on within that region

  • is termed asspace weather’.

  • As a Space Weather Forecaster we assume the duties almost like a

  • weather forecaster here for the Earth. We have to have information.

  • We have to have data, models and all this stuff to put this together

  • just like if we were forecasting the weather here on the Earth.

  • After all the years I’ve been in this I still am every day excited about what I see

  • and what I can learn.

  • This is my baby. I founded the company in 2001.

  • Were a technology company. We specialize in security;

  • integrated security solutions for the Department of Defense and commercial.

  • Right out of high school I went to a trade school; couldn’t afford to do college

  • at that time. I worked for a job shop and then from there I just grew with the industry

  • and became certified in just about every networking hardware that was out there

  • My biggest interest was how to use technology to solve different problems.

  • I think the opportunities can be abundant at the large companies that support bases

  • like Buckley Air Force Base or Peterson Air Force Base or Shriver.

  • And you got Fort Carson down here.

  • You also have a lot of small companies like us that support their mission also.

  • Both my wife and I did great in a corporate environment.

  • We both had corporate careers which got us a very decent lifestyle

  • and that lifestyle has funded this company to be honest.

  • Colorado, and the Front Range especially, is one of the biggest

  • in the United States for the opportunities for aerospace and science.

  • I just enjoy the growth opportunity and the breadth of different jobs

  • and different roles that you can play here within the industry.

  • We need machinists. We need technical specialists and manufacturing.

  • We need contracts administrators, IT professionals, human resources,

  • business management, accountants.

  • As federal contractors we can only hire people that are US citizens

  • or permanent residents. So our jobs will not be going over seas.

  • Colorado is just a great place to do your aerospace degree.

  • There’s a lot of national labs around that are easy to get internships at.

  • CU Denver, CU Boulder, and Colorado School of Mines, and CSU.

  • We target them a lot because they produce college students that

  • are well prepared for this industry.

  • You get to use a lot of your skills that youve learned in school

  • but then you get to think outta the box. You get to be creative.

  • You get to be innovative.

  • This industry is wide open. It’s open and available to anyone.

  • I love the energy that is in all of the aerospace industry.

  • Aerospace is you, if you want it.

I perform mission operations on five NASA satellites.
