Christopher EckertEngineer As a hardware engineer, I develop front-end radio receivers for geodetic and radar systems used in principal research and space situational awareness programs.
As a mechanical engineer, my skill set is focused on the design and implementation of next-generation radio instruments for use in astronomy, geodesy, atmospheric science, and deep space imaging radars. My work involves mechanical system design, RF hardware layout, cryogenic systems, circuit board development and layout, high vacuum chambers, structural analysis, field deployments, and system maintenance. I attended Syracuse University, where I studied history and mechanical engineering.
