Moving Things Around in Space, Imaging Space Objects When We're Not
As a Ground Systems Software Engineer you will work directly with the Turion team in the planning, development, and implementation of the Turion Space Mission Control System. This system will be the central nervous system of DROID missions and will be responsible for commanding and managing all DROID satellites. Your experience, creativity, and ambition will directly impact the way Turion Space operates as it continues to grow in scale and complexity.
Turion Space was formed with the vision of building the technology required for humanity's interplanetary future. Our short-term goal is to solve the most significant threat to that vision - orbital debris. The exponential growth of spacecraft and launch vehicles entering Earth's orbits has dramatically increased the risk of collisions. Even a small number of these conjunctions will lead to the inaccessibility of the final frontier. We are developing the technology to stabilize this threat. This challenge will also serve as a test-bed for future asteroid resource extraction.
