After a heavy heart surgery in France that saved his life, I had the pleasure to take Ibukun back home in Benin, last July 21st.

9. Enrico Stoll

Full Professor | Chair of Space Technology, Technische Universität Berlin

Enrico Stoll

Average Post Engagement: 56

Country:

Germany

What I use Linkedin for:

Publication of research highlights and networking

Number of Followers:

989

Industry:

Education & Academia

 

Who am I:

I hold the Chair of Space Technology at TU Berlin and try to inspire students and researchers to use technological advancements for the sustainable development of space infrastructure that helps to improve our understanding of the processes on Earth and Moon.

What I do:

1) distributed sensor networks: We would like to help to understand atmospheric and climate processes by contributing with connected satellite networks that provide data in a high timely and spatial resolution.

2) in-space manufacturing and assembly: Developing and testing robotic capabilities in space will enable us to build, maintaining, and repairing spacecraft in orbit. Using this technology, completely new types of spacecraft and applications are possible. We could further try to stabilize the space debris environment by performing robotic debris removal missions. We are focussing on that framework on robotics with NanoSats / CubeSats. In that framework, we developed a biologically inspired docking mechanism that was tested on ISS last year.

3) lunar exploration: Additive manufacturing will be a key technology for lunar exploration and the establishment of a permanent outpost on the Moon. The focus is on ins situ resource utilization, and we are following (powder feed) fused deposition modeling and (mobile) selective laser melting techniques, which can be performed by rovers. We already performed additive manufacturing under lunar gravity (in a drop tower), which is a world-first to my knowledge.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

The Chair of Space Technology has more than 30 years of experience in the development and operations of satellites. It has already successfully launched 27 satellites during that time, which makes us one of the leading universities in satellite development. Only in 2021, we launched 5 Satellites between 330 g and 20 kg. I use LinkedIn to publish recent advancements, new projects, research highlights, and job opportunities.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I mostly follow universities and research institutions to get first-hand news on new developments.

We successfully launched four 0.25U satellites earlier this year, each weighing about 330 g. It’s a very interesting technology that shows that picosatellites can be operated as a network and has great potential, e.g. for IoT applications.

Who am I:

I am a neo-generalist with comprehensive working experience in senior-level roles in Finance, Supply chain, Public relations, Sales and marketing, Product development, Process development, Strategy development, Business development, and Partnership management. I have made over 20 years of career in Finland and abroad mostly at Nokia. I truly believe in the power of good leadership. Manager’s role is to make subordinates and partners successful by supporting and helping them. My personal goal is to become every day a better leader. I am pleased to have around me great people who help me in that. I strongly feel that humankind should satisfy its current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. I am passionate about a sustainable future, increased quality of life across the globe, and equal opportunities for everybody. My colleagues, customers, and partners say that I know the right questions to ask, get the problems identified and solved quickly, manage issues that encounter friction, and get done tasks that are considered impossible.

My role is to understand the challenges and needs of our customers and partners.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

This question should be actually asked by my existing followers. My personal interest is to promote and share topics that are especially close and valuable to me like New Space, sustainability, and good leadership. My ranking in SSI (Social Selling Index) in Aviation & Aerospace is in the top 1%. I hope that my followers like the guidelines that I have set for myself on in Linkedin.

1) I want to interact actively with the people in my network

2) I am silent if I feel that I cannot add any value. I believe that the quality of the content really matters.

3) When I connect with new people I want to chat with them to show that I truly value them as part of my network.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I don’t have a single person to follow on Linkedin. My approach is to build a comprehensive and versatile global network of people to follow and interact with. I believe in diversity. Every person has equal rights and is worth listening to. We can change the world together. There are so many fascinating people in my network to follow and to chat with i.e. people worldwide with different needs, backgrounds, cultures, educations, and opinions, young people full of passion, and older people with a huge amount of experience.

This was the announcement of me representing Australia to be first to land back on the Moon and accelerating Australia’s return to the moon by 5-10 years. This was the work of many months in the making and i am very proud of this milestone and i know the real work is coming but i am reminded of the great team we have put together to make history. This mission is not only about the national pride, but more importantly it represents an international consortium of partners showcasing how much more we can achieve by working together.

I would really like to be an astronaut and at the same time carry out this kind of studies to allow man to continue to expand his knowledge relating to space.

Who am I:

I dreamed of being an astronaut at an early age after seeing the last of the Apollo missions, which inspired me to build a space capsule out of a washing machine tub in his backyard in St. John, New Brunswick. Knowing the washtub was not going to space, I soon discovered that a good education could create a path to the stars. Suffering from learning difficulties, his mother bought him books about space which motivated him to read and overcome academic challenges and enabled him to study electrical engineering to help qualify to be an astronaut. However, after he received a rejection letter from the CSA in the early 1990’s, Arseneau turned to finance. He spent nearly 25 years in capital markets, specializing in electronic trading, first at JPMorgan in New York in the 1990’s, and most recently as Chief Information Office at the Bank of Montreal.

Industry:

Space Studies, Geospatial Applications and Global Sustainable Development

 

Who am I:

Manuel Ntumba is Regional Partnership Manager at United Nations’ Space Generation Advisory Council (UN SGAC) – United Nations Programme on Space Applications, affiliated to the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) based in Vienna, Austria. Manuel Ntumba is among the World’s Top Experts, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs, selected from around the globe by US-based XPRIZE FOUNDATION, to propose breakthroughs to overcome the world’s biggest challenges. Manuel Ntumba is also an Expert on Geospatial Information and Earth Observation for the European Union.

He is Co-founder of Tod’Aérs – Transparent Organization for Aeronautics and Space Research, a multinational organization promoting Global Sustainable Development through Research in Geospatial and Space Studies – in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Manuel Ntumba was the awardee of the 2018 Togolese Government Excellence Fellowship in Space Studies. For the past two years, He worked with renowned researchers and professors from Asia, Canada, and Europe. He patented several inventions in fields including satellite telecommunications, space engineering, quantum technology, artificial intelligence and marine technology.

What I do:

Manuel Ntumba recently launched the Mandela Satellite Initiative (MandelaSat Initiative), which in January 2022 will bring together entrepreneurs, experts and researchers from around the world, especially from the global geospatial and space industries to collaborate on small satellites missions for developing countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, South America and the Caribbean. This initiative aims to support the United Nations efforts on space applications in developing countries.

Manuel Ntumba is currently working on ODRiSat, an optical data relay inter-satellite system, in collaboration with researchers from India and Europe. The inter-satellite system ODRiSat comprises nine (9) cube-satellites, which are expected to be launched into low earth orbit (LEO) by 2023. These nine (9) cube-satellites may include national satellites of some developing countries. One of the nine cube-satellites, ODRiSat-1, which is the brain of the inter-satellite system, requires an advanced quantum photonic configuration invented by Manuel Ntumba. To limit the number of satellites used, Manuel Ntumba proposed to connect the inter-satellite system ODRiSat to several atmospheric drones, which will require the same advanced quantum photonic configuration invented by Manuel Ntumba, to achieve data processing and transmission at almost real-time with the cube-satellites in low earth orbit (LEO). With this configuration, the inter-satellite system ODRiSat, will make it possible to provide Earth observation services and Satellite Internet Access services in remote areas, especially for developing countries, using a very specific number of satellites.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I usually share posts about Tod’Aérs – Transparent Organization for Aeronautics and Space Research, is a multinational organization promoting Global Sustainable Development through Research in Geospatial and Space Studies – in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Who am I:

As the Founder, and CEO of Cumulus Technologies, I am a self-taught, FAA Certified, USI Pro Level 3 certified, Professional Drone Pilot with over 4000+ successful missions to my credit. I have earned accreditations from various organizations such as FEMA, OSHA, as well as numerous aviation industry certifications. In the last six years I have learned how to leverage my passion for flying drones and my extensive technology background to help law enforcement, public safety entities, school districts, and enterprises to do their jobs in a much safer and more efficient environment using drones in various industries.

With the advent of drones in to our world and the prevalence in the North Texas area of companies developing and utilizing this technology, My aviation experience helps bring leadership to the North Central Texas Council of Governments UAS Task Force were I serve as the Legislative Chairman in engaging politicians, government officials, large businesses, and educational institutions in developing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) policies and procedures which has helped shape drone regulations in Texas.

Having been appointed the Deputy Director of Unmanned Operations for the Texas Civil Air Patrol, and a senior member of the CAP sUAS Rescue Team, I support FEMA and Civil Air Patrol Search and Recovery Missions around the country helping folks in times of need utilizing my SAR ground and aerial training.

As the Training Officer for the North Texas Unmanned Public Safety Response Team (NTXPSURT), I volunteer my drones and flying abilities to help police, fire depts, and emergency management teams on any number of tasks from flight and compliance training to search, and recovery missions.

Using my passion for flying, I have helped establish aviation programs in several high schools here in North Texas. This aviation passion has driven me to introduce high school students, community members, business leaders, and organizations to the unmanned aviation industry and has trained and mentored many of these individuals to become licensed Professional Drone Pilots.

What I do:

Cumulus Technologies founded by Michael Hill is an UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) “Drone” consulting company.

Who am I:

A seasoned Communications Director, I help companies and individuals in the aviation, aerospace and defence sectors tell their stories better as well as providing strategic advice to a range of aviation organisations. I’m also a very keen Private Pilot with a particular passion for vintage taildraggers and fast jets.

I co-own a 1950 de Havilland Chipmunk, which we keep at Old Warden aerodrome, home of the famous Shuttleworth Collection. I feel extremely privileged in that my passion for aviation has allowed me to forge a fascinating career and I’m regularly asked to advise other organisations such as the Civil Aviation Authority, Royal Aeronautical Society, Honourable Company of Air Pilots, Historic Aircraft Association and the Flying Legends Airshow.

One of my recent highlights was working with the Aircraft Restoration Company in promoting their NHS Spitfire initiative during the Covid-19 pandemic.

What I do:

My day-to-day role involves media relations, government relations, internal communications, investor relations and social and digital media. I also keep my hand in as a writer, contributing to a range of publications on all aspects of aviation but particularly ‘hands-on’ flight tests of various aeroplanes.

For a keen amateur, I’ve somehow managed to rack up more than 25 different types in my logbook! I also provide strategic communications advice to aviation organisations and training on how to make the most of media interviews.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I’ve just been named as ‘Aerospace Communicator of the Year’ in the 2021 Aerospace Media Awards. The nominations are submitted and a winner chosen by journalists from across our industry. It was a great honour and very flattering to be chosen from such a rich crop of experienced communications people! I have a handle on most aspects of our industry thanks to my extensive network and the support I provide to various organisations.

I’m particularly keen on promoting more diversity across the sector and showcasing the impact that aviation can have on lives and people’s future prospects. The issues of decarbonisation and wider environmental impacts is also a hot topic for me – as a sector that has continuously innovated throughout its history, aviation is very well placed to develop technologies that will make a real difference to the future of our planet.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I follow business executives, journalists and thought leaders from across my industry and others. I’m currently looking for insights and trends as aviation and aerospace responds to both the Covid pandemic but also the rush towards Net Zero. I also enjoy seeing how others in similar roles to me promote the work of their businesses online. LinkedIn has become increasingly powerful in the past few years and for me has eclipsed all other social media platforms in terms of usefulness.

“Actually may favorite LinkedIn post was recent one with my personal story after COVID-19. It gave me a lot of private messages (I am still trying to respond to all of them) with people writing their own stories and supporting me. And this is why LinkedIn is so important. We all do business, but we are also humans and sometimes we need to make a stop and look at each other just like humans. With lots of empathy. Why is so important to me? As if we are to make another step in space, we have to do it as a humanity.

Putting differences aside and work as one. As for me a vision of exploration of space presented in “Expanse” series is a sad imagination of we should not become.” Lukasz

Sea Launch, Wave of the Future?

The concept of sea-based space launches is almost 60 years old. The technology already exists and there is now market demand.

Companies like Sea Launch, SpaceXBlack Arrow Space Technologies and BLUE ORIGIN are already investing in sea/space technologies, with Sea Launch having a launch pedigree.

If the trend for future launch vehicles is bigger, then the sea presents, perhaps, the only viable option.

I love connecting with people across the world who are developing the next generation of spacefaring technologies. What I always find endlessly surprising is how connected we are in terms of the challenges we face, not just technically, but on a far more personal level. B2B sales are all H2H sales. Human to Human. For me, the best part about LinkedIn is the relationship and connection I feel with the person behind the profile.

Who am I:

I am an aerospace manager with Technetics. I help in-atmosphere and in-space companies meet their design goals by applying our products to applications that most often located within extreme environments.
A former Canadian living in Florida with a wife from Hong Kong. A work-at-home dad that who sometimes has his workspace invaded by his 1 and 4 year-old boys. Most often they request to watch a rocket launch, or they have come to alert me that dinosaurs have been spotted just outside our house, and may in fact, attack at any time.
Technetics: With a pedigree of flight that begins with the Mercury missions, we manufacture solutions that now reside within Saturn, explored/are exploring the surface of Mars, and have protected both the Hubble and Spitzer telescopes. Our products are used extensively onboard Human Spaceflight systems including the International Space Station, the Orion, and Space Launch System.

What I do:

I develop new sales with new/existing aerospace customers. LinkedIn is the platform that I use to develop most all new businesses.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I truly strive to be a worthwhile source and a resource on LinkedIn. The content that I build is typically based on agglomerating news or links to relevant standards or sources. (e.g. NASA Fracture Control, NASA findings when they tested our products, etc.) I also try very hard to augment a news story with additional information so that the reader has some context to other issues that may have some impact on the subject.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I tend to look for people who lead their business from the front. People who engage with those at the font lines of their market segments. Kathy Leuders, Administrator of the Human Exploration and Operations (HEO) Mission Directorate and Richard Branson, Virgin Galactic Founder, are probably the best exemplars. Another trait that they both share is that they genuinely seem to love what they do and are having a lot of fun doing it.

Over years, we tackled some of the most challenging engineered applications in the development of the Space Launch System. I have spent many hours of my life in conference rooms working shoulder to shoulder with the people who were tasked to develop those solutions.

I strive to be creative, innovative and collaborative in every position I get to work in and on every project I get to work on. In addition to technical expertise, I strive for emotional connections full of empathy and understanding.

I like to push my teams to think about how we can get something done instead of why we can’t do something. I can only hope that the people I influence have a better chance of achieving something greater than I ever could because I’d like to think I helped them remove barriers I faced.

What I do:

I am a Systems Engineer at NASA Johnson Space Center working on the Artemis Space Suit. As a Civil Contractor at NASA, I have the benefit of being part of an innovative team trying to introduce new technologies into the space suit and prepare Astronauts for walking on the moon in 2024.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

Networking is one of the best ways to learn other’s skills and strengths. I think of it as a way of connecting with folks that could amplify my strengths or are better in areas where I may not do so well. Following me means that as positions open up in various companies that I’m in tune with, I may selectively send out messages to folks who I think have the skillset for the job.

Additionally, I’m a source for mentorship and mentoring. Whether you want a mentor or mentee – I am open to having a conversation, meeting for lunch, sharing what’s working, what’s not working and adding to one’s knowledge base as they pursue life long goals and aspirations.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I like to follow innovators, creatives, thinkers and industry giants. My focus recently has been to expand my NASA network but my network is not industry specific.

It’s an enthusiasm that’s enabled me to speak with and meet the most incredible people, see amazing places and realize otherwise impossible experiences. If I have ever sparked in my reader an interest for aviation, then it’s a job well done. If anything I’ve ever written has inspired one young person, especially a girl, to consider an aviation career, then I’m content. I care very deeply about ensuring young people, girls and young women in particular, are exposed to the many and frequently less obvious possibilities aviation may grant them
