More about Wes: Wes has built his career on outer space. From 2011 to 2017, Wes served as a Design and Aerospace Engineer at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (MIT/LL). While at MIT/LL he oversaw the final phases of development, and led the assembly, integration, and testing (AI&T) of the NASA Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration ground terminal, from its test phases at MIT/LL through to its fully fielded deployment at White Sands, New Mexico. Wes also oversaw the design and development of the attitude determination and control system for the MiRaTA CubeSat mission from requirements definition through AI&T and support in early operations. Wes then joined Analytical Space where he leads a technical team that creates new space technology.
