ABSTRACT
The Radarsat Constellation Mission is the third Canadian mission to provide remote sensing of the earth via Cband radar. The planned applications of this mission include ice, wind and ship monitoring for Canada’s three oceans; forestry, agriculture, wetlands, coastal changes, permafrost monitoring for our inland ecosystems; and mitigation, warning, response, and recovery for natural disasters and Canada and around the world.” Magellan Aerospace designed, built and tested the all of the parts of the spacecraft that support the radar payload right here in Winnipeg. Diane Kotelko will discuss the systems engineering aspects of the RCM spacecraft bus design, describing concepts that are applicable to any commercial engineering project, and will also provide some information about the overall mission to provide context. Be well prepared for the inevitable questions that will come up in coffeeshop or social networking conversations when the launch occurs in February 2019.

BIO
Diane Kotelko graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1986, part of the third class that included women. She has been working at Magellan Aerospace (formerly Bristol Aerospace), since just after her graduation. Her career began with flight simulations of airtoground rocket systems and guided rocketpowered missiles. She left the flat earth society behind after 5 years, and began to consider the earth as a sphere when she moved into the Space Systems department to do flight simulation of Black Brant rockets. Eventually she realized that the earth moves around the sun when she became the Attitude Control Systems Lead for the SCISAT1 satellite mission. Her horizons broadened as she became Flight Software and Operations Lead for the CASSIOPE spacecraft bus, and finally Systems Lead for the RCM bus. She enjoys cycling, kayaking, skiing, being creative, and playing the bagpipes, but most of all, watching her sons flourish in their adult lives.
