Prof Sir Martin Sweeting

executive chairman surrey satellite technology

Inspired by the 1969 lunar landing and the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, whilst studying for his PhD in electrical engineering, Martin Sweeting decided to design a satellite. This was a remarkable feat, partly because he knew nothing about building satellites and partly because the satellite weighed a mere 72kg at a time where others were the size of buses. Today, he is renowned in the industry for his pioneering concept of low-cost, rapid response, small satellites. He is currently the executive chairman of Surrey Satellite Technology, which has designed, constructed, launched and operates 27 nano, mini and micro satellites in orbit.
