Kilkeel-based Collins Aerospace has joined the global movement of encouraging girls to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and to consider those fields as part of their future careers, by hosting the annual ‘Introduce A Girl to Engineering’ day, now in its 20th year.

This year’s event, which took place on Thursday 25 February was held virtually due to the pandemic and it consisted of almost 55 participants, which included students from five local schools – Kilkeel High School, Shimna Integrated, St Louis Grammar School, Sacred Heart Grammar School, Newry High School and Down High Grammar. Volunteers from the Kilkeel facility also attended and shared their knowledge and expertise of the field through engaging activities and discussions, as well as providing tours of products including the space suit and ejection seat. Participants were also treated to guest workshops from Time Magazine Kid of the Year, Gintanjali Rao and former NASA astronaut, Joan Higginbotham.

The aim of the annual event is to inspire the next generation of female engineers to consider the many exciting careers available in STEM fields, which are currently underrepresented by females. By encouraging girls to explore these fields at a young age, it is hoped they will become engaged, and their curiosity of the engineering roles open to them sparked.

“This is the second year engineers from Kilkeel are participating in the Introduce a Girl to Engineering event,” stated Collins Aerospace’s Dr Deepa Jose, a research engineer and planning lead of the engineering event. “Women are underrepresented in STEM related fields, only 13% of engineers are women today, and it is imperative to develop a future pipeline of diverse talents. I hope that through initiatives like this we can spark each girl’s curiosity, propel them forward in their journey to become our next generation of engineers and innovators.”

Collins Aerospace is part of Raytheon Technologies, an aerospace and defence company that provides advance systems and services for customers worldwide. Formed in 2020 and with nearly 200,000 employees globally they have over 60,000 engineers. As part of their core belief that they have a responsibility to change the world for the better, one key focus is on STEM and supporting educational initiatives that inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and business professionals. This event goes some way to support that.

During the event, Engineering Manager at Collins Aerospace, Kilkeel Karen Higgins from Belfast spoke about her career, saying: “I decided to study mechanical and manufacturing engineering at Queen’s University, Belfast as I had a keen interest in Maths and Physics in school and was a huge fan of Formula One. I was fascinated by all of the technology and speed. I loved my time at Queen’s and was lucky to be part of the Formula Student team, designing and building our own single seater race car and competing in the Formula student event at Silverstone.

“Since joining Collins Aerospace in Kilkeel in 2007, I have had many varied roles, all of which I’ve enjoyed and most of them have involved solving engineering problems. I’m currently the Engineering Manager of our Premium Cabin Business Unit. I would encourage young girls to pursue a career in engineering as it opens up so many doors. There are many types of engineering to go into – civil, mechanical, chemical as well as many others, and it is a career that is sought after in many industries.”

Stuart McKee, Managing Director of Collins Aerospace, Kilkeel said: “We were delighted to once again host our ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day’, albeit slightly different this year, given that we were only able to welcome the students to our facility virtually. It was great however to see a high turnout of students attend the event, and engage with them, share our knowledge about what is involved when choosing a career in STEM and giving them advice on how to forge their own careers and future in engineering.

“These sectors are very underrepresented by females, but by targeting the students at a young age, we can hopefully ignite that engineering spark. I’m very proud that Collins Aerospace is placing such a great focus on encouraging young women in to engineering.”

Collins Aerospace Kilkeel provides employment to many young people within their engineering, human resources, finance, environmental health and safety, and logistic departments. This includes apprenticeships in engineering, which support employees with their studies whilst also gaining practical on the job experience; internships; and final year and graduate support programmes.

Julie Devlin, Head of Careers from St Louis Grammar School, school said: “It was just wonderful to see how interested our young women were in all things engineering. They were certainly engaged during the presentation from the NASA astronaut and when talking about all things space, particularly given the recent coverage on the landing of Perseverance on Mars. The students really enjoyed, as did I, the tour of the products, which gave them a real insight into how things can be manufactured. It was a wonderful, informative and inspiring remote learning event delivered with passion and enthusiasm. This was a fantastic opportunity and one I would like to thank Collins Aerospace for – we thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Alan Crutchley, Head of Technology and Design at Kilkeel High School said after the event: “It was great to be asked to join in with the Collins Aerospace ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering’ event. Giving our pupils an insight into the engineering world, and helping to inspire them to become the problem solvers of the future is a great way to inform these girls of the potential careers in the field of engineering. Thank you, Collins Aerospace.”

Collins Aerospace hosted the ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering’ event at 55 of their locations worldwide spanning 12 countries, as part of their ‘Redefining Futures’ Corporate Social Responsibility Programme.

Lewisville, TX, April 21, 2021 – Today, Parsec Capital Acquisitions Corp. (“Company” or “Parsec”), filed a confidential S1 as a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) with a focus on the space economy, technology and transport industries.  Astro Aerospace (OTCQB: ASDN) (“Astro”) has sponsored their SPAC.

Astro, a global leader in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aerial vehicles and drones, is a pioneer in the aerial eVTOL market, which has an estimated value of $46.7 billion. Astro’s sponsorship is of great value to Parsec, as the new relationship not only brings financial investment but a vault of transport industry expertise. Astro developed one of the market’s safest and most efficient eVTOLs in the world, and in 2018 its drone ‘Elroy’ was one of the first to seamlessly fly with humans on board.

Overpopulation, traffic congestion and pollution in urban areas are three main drivers of Astro’s eVTOL designs. These escalating crises will continue to amplify if ‘green’ and sustainable transport solutions are not implemented globally.

Astro CEO Bruce Bent stated, “The UN predicts that by 2050, 68 percent of populations will be in urban centers. Astro is happy to sponsor Parsec who like us, is driven to bring safe, reliable and environmentally-sustainable transport to market.”

Parsec was formed in 2021 with a purpose of growing businesses that will make the greatest impact on the future of transportation while delivering attractive investor returns. Sponsoring a SPAC with a smaller offering size of $50 million, Parsec has greater freedom with asset selection than other SPACs as it focuses on small to mid-cap companies in the space economy, technology and transport arenas. The Company offers a calculated and strategic approach when sourcing opportunities due to its high-level expertise across its management team and Board of Directors.

Parsec CEO Patricia Trompeter has a career spanning more than 16 years in mergers and acquisitions and over 15 years in financial management. Last month, Ms. Trompeter was appointed to Astro’s Board of Directors.

Ms. Trompeter has always had a fascination with planes from the early days of flying with her father, an army pilot veteran who served in World War 2.  Years later, Ms. Trompeter began a career at GE Capital where she held a variety of executive positions including CFO and Controller. This eventually led to working for GE Capital Aircraft Services (GECAS) acquiring a breadth of knowledge in the aviation industry which was also gained from the successful acquisition of Guinness Peat Aviation.

“Becoming the CEO of Parsec is honestly a dream job,” said Ms. Trompeter.” I, along with our talented team and Board of Directors, get to explore emerging companies in the sectors I find most fascinating – space, technology and transport. I have always had a passion for the airline industry and as a natural segway – space.”

In 2019, total investment in space companies was nearly $6 billion. Space has become the new economy, and many investors are looking to get their piece of the market. Global electric sales are also growing, with sales expected to grow 50 percent or more in 2021. Due to this surge, an increasing number of investors are also seeing tremendous potential in the eVTOL market.

Ms. Trompeter continued, “Astro’s vision and drive to bring its eVTOLs to market is exactly the type of charisma Parsec is seeking in potential opportunities. Astro’s sponsorship and mentorship is warmly embraced during this initial phase of our SPAC’s growth, and we look forward to working with them as we move forward to identify a target.”

Parsec’s three target industries continue to welcome more and more innovative technologies, pushing space economy towards a $1 trillion evaluation by 2040, the artificial intelligence market toward $390.9 billion by 2025, and the sustainable aviation fuel market toward $15.3 billion by 2030.

Parsec offers a calculated and strategic approach when sourcing opportunities due to its high-level expertise across its management team and Board of Directors. CEO Patricia Trompeter’s career spans more than 16 years in mergers and acquisitions and over 15 years in financial management. Her financial competencies are matched by her breadth of knowledge in the aviation industry which she acquired throughout her career including positions at GE Capital Aircraft Services (GECAS) with the acquisition of Guinness Peat Aviation.

Ms. Trompeter’s leadership makes Parsec part of a growing representation of female minority-led SPACs, which according to Bloomberg only half of the SPACs they reviewed had women present on their board.

Ms. Trompeter commented, “I have always had an obsession with aircraft industry and by nature space travel.   Astro’s vision for the future of transportation is a huge inspiration to Parsec. Astro’s sponsorship will help us grow emerging businesses that will make a true impact on the environment and the way society functions. Astro can fully relate to our efforts as an emerging pioneer in the growing $46.7 billion eVTOL aircraft market.”

Parsec’s executive team also includes CFO Paul Haber who brings 25 years in corporate finance and capital markets. Mr. Haber and Ms. Trompeter are also active on the SPAC’s Board of Directors. They are joined by world-class Board.

“Astro’s sponsorship of Parsec is a natural fit,” said Astro CEO Bruce Bent. “Parsec’s vision and goals align with Astro’s objectives, and the Parsec team brings decades of experience to successfully grow companies while increasing shareholder value. Astro had the pleasure of welcoming Ms. Trompeter to our Board last month, and we could not be happier to invest in a SPAC under her leadership.”

China is developing plans for a 13,000-satellite megaconstellation

Avatar

Published

on

HELSINKI — China is to oversee the construction and operation of a national satellite internet megaconstellation through coordinating the country’s major space actors. 

Recent comments by senior officials indicate that plans are moving ahead to alter earlier constellation plans by space sector state-owned enterprises and possibly make these part of a larger “Guowang” or “national network” satellite internet project. 

Spectrum allocation filings submitted to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) by China in September last year revealed plans to construct two similarly named “GW” low Earth orbit constellations totaling 12,992 satellites. 

The filings indicate plans for GW to consist of sub-constellations ranging from 500-1,145 kilometers in altitude with inclinations between 30-85 degrees. The satellites would operate across a range of frequency bands.

Bao Weimin, a senior official with the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. (CASC), China’s main space contractor, made a first public acknowledgement of the megaconstellation plan in an interview with Shanghai Securities News March 7, stating “we are planning and developing space-based internet satellites and have launched test satellites.”

“A “national network” (Guo Wang) company will also be established to be responsible for the overall planning and operation of the satellite internet construction,” Bao added.

On Monday Ge Yujun, president of China Spacesat Co., Ltd., a CASC subsidiary, told ThePaper that the Hongyan and Hongyun broadband constellations previously planned CASC and sister state-owned giant China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) respectively would be altered by authorities.

Ge said that “relevant national departments” are conducting overall planning for constellation construction and that he understands that the original plans for Hongyan and CASIC’s Hongyun will “undergo major changes”.

Both constellations, announced around 2018, were to consist of hundreds of communications satellites in low Earth orbit. A handful of technology verification satellites have since been launched. CASC was planning to have an initial 60 Hongyan satellites in orbit by 2022. 

The comments suggest that the older constellations may form part of the new, larger “national network” project.

It is unclear how the project will proceed but the development of satellite internet has become a national priority.

China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) added “satellite internet” to a list of “new infrastructures” in April 2020. 

The recently approved 14th Five-year Plan for the period 2021-2026 and “long-range objectives through 2035” call for an integrated network of communications, Earth observation, and navigation satellites. 

China has already constructed its Beidou navigation and positioning system and is deploying Gaofen satellites for its  China High-resolution Earth Observation System (CHEOS).

Additionally private enterprise Galaxy Space in 202 launched its Yinhe-1 to test Q/V and Ka-band communications. Beijing Commsat Technology Development Co., Ltd., earlier this year received government funding from the China Internet Investment Fund (CIIF) for research and industrialization of satellites. It is unclear what role, if any, such firms will play in the national network project.

Ian Christensen, director of private sector programs at Secure World Foundation, sees the “GW” or national network project as potentially serving a number of goals for China. These include supporting domestic technology and economic development goals and contributing to China’s soft power diplomacy and regional leadership efforts. 

“Development of the constellation will also provide domestic employment, anchor space-related industry clusters, and contribute to economic development through serving and enabling domestic connectivity needs,” Christensen says. He adds that the project could also be used as a tool for soft power, as part of the Belt and Road Initiative or diplomacy efforts in nearby regions.

With constellations such as SpaceX’s Starlink and OneWeb already underway and Amazon this week ordering Atlas 5 missions for its Kuiper broadband satellites, the planned GW constellation brings even more urgency to the need to address issues related to the deployment of megaconstellatons including space debris and space traffic management.

“I personally would take the likelihood of the successful deployment of the GW constellation seriously. It should place further emphasis and urgency on the need to improve global coordination practices for the deployment and operation of large constellations,” Christensen says. 

“Space safety is an area where there are shared interests between U.S and Chinese actors, including both government and private sector actors, but overall geopolitical trends make meaningful dialogue challenging.”

Proposed and developing megaconstellations are raising concerns of the heightened risk of orbital debris. The growing number of satellites in LEO is also a threat to visible astronomy.
