Research interests

I am involved in the development and characterisation of instrumentation for the in-situ determination of the chemical composition of the atmosphere, surface and subsurface of major and minor solar system bodies.  Key activities have included:

  • Development of the gas handling and processing system on the Ptolemy instrument (Rosetta Lander)
  • The development of miniature mass spectrometers for sub-surface deployment by either low-speed mole or high-speed penetrator devices
  • The development of Carbon Nano Tube devices for use as low power mass spectrometer ionisation sources

I have also been responsible for the development of novel, miniature high performance gas valves for use in space-craft pressure control systems.  Applications of this technology include the gas pressurisation systems for analytical instruments and space-craft propulsion. 

Im currently involved in the following:

  • CO-I on the Ptolemy instrument onboard the Rosetta lander
  • CO-I on the DAMS project
  • CO-I on Duster ESA ITT project
  • Research Scientist on the ESA: Lunar Volatile Resource Analysis Package (LVRAP) project

The Valve : A Solution for Satellite Propulsion (HTP)

RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01/Jul/201530/Jun/2016Innovate UK
Recent discussions with the Satellite Propulsion Group at SSTL Ltd have resulted in them rating the development, qualification and implemention of the OU's patented proportional valve as being their strategic R&D priority for 2015. Simon Sheridan is the lead inventor the patent (The Valve) along with Martin Jarvis and Geraint Morgan. Oli Lane from SSTL will lead a bid to Innovate UK that will use the OU as their academic project partners to translate the exisiting know-how to SSTL. A second commercial company (tank manufacturer) may also form part of the application (tbc). A commercial Licensing Deal between the OU and SSTL will be a pre-requisite for the work to go ahead. Meetings are scheduled with Malcolm Stokes and iain Gilmour to further this agenda. With SSTL being a subsidiary of Airbus - derivatives of the OU valves have the potential to be utlised as part of the propulsion systems on future small and large (including geostationary) satellites. SSTL would provide the route to market and would conduct the necessary space qualification. Budget available to the OU is likely to be 80% of £80k (tbc)
