Technology Journalist at 3D Printing Industry in London 

Are you fascinated about how technology shapes the world around you? If so, good news, because the 3D Printing Industry magazine and website are now recruiting for a Technology Journalist. Reporting on the latest news from the constantly expanding world of additive manufacturing, the successful applicant will join its growing team, and help report on the technology, enterprises, and individuals leading this exciting sector. The position will involve working from the company’s Central London headquarters on a permanent basis, but for now, the ongoing pandemic means that the role will need to be temporarily home-based. Once travel restrictions have been lifted, your work will take you to many of the enterprises, events, and academic institutions where the industry’s leaders work.

The position involves reporting and pitching directly to the Editor-in-chief, and the successful candidate will be responsible for covering how 3D printing is used across a wide range of sectors. A technical background is not essential for the role, but excellent communication skills and the ability to write for both print and online audiences are, in addition to a minimum of two years’ work experience in a similar role. An understanding of SEO, social media, and web design would also be an advantage but aren’t essential. There is room for progression for the candidate that masters their new beat, and there’s scope to represent the business through speaking or hosting engagements.

Launcher hires ex-NASA and SpaceX engineers to lead its avionics team 

American private aerospace company Launcher has appointed NASA JPL & SpaceX veterans Kevin Watson and Rich Petras to both start and lead the company’s new avionics team. Watson will head the team as Head of Avionics, while Rich Petras has joined as Head of Avionics Software in Watson’s team. Having previously focused exclusively on high-performance 3D printed propulsion development, the company is now beginning to develop its avionics team and platform. As a result, the new pair will manage the ground and vehicle fault-tolerant computers, electronics, wiring, and software for guidance & control, video, radio transmission, autonomous flight termination systems, and more.

Watson has over thirty years of experience in designing hardware and software for rockets and spacecraft. Having begun his career at NASA/JPL, where he developed expertise in the area of space radiation effects in complex integrated circuits, he went on to work on several JPL spacecraft, and the development of Mars rover technologies. Later, in 2008, Watson joined SpaceX to lead the design of flight computers for the Falcon 9 & Falcon Heavy rockets and Dragon spacecraft. Petras meanwhile, has worked in the spacecraft avionics and embedded systems field for 35 years. He has long been an advocate for open-source software and commodity hardware for spacecraft applications and put this to good use at JPL and SpaceX. While at JPL, he developed a common rover software architecture (Claraty) that formed a basis for the company’s research rovers, and at SpaceX, he devised the microcontroller code used to communicate with the Dragon spacecraft as it approached the ISS.
