Esaú Vicente-Vivas, Ph.D

Instituto de Ingeniería, UNAM, Mexico

Dr. Vicente-Vivas Esaú Vicente-Vivas received the BS, M.Sc. and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the National University of México (UNAM). Since 1982 he has done research for the Institute of Engineering and since 1985 and 1989 he has been lecturer at the School of Engineering and at the Postgraduate School of Engineering, UNAM, México City. In 1985 he DEVELOPED GASCAN experiments for the Space Shuttle at Utah State University and in 1988 developed hardware for image processing at the Space Applications Center, ISRO, Ahmedabad, India.

His research interests include computer system architecture, human machine interfaces, high available and fault-tolerant systems, and small satellite instrumentation.

He participated successfully as leader for the automation hardware and software for the 55 Kg SATEX Microsatellite project.

From 2007 to 2009 was the general director to design, develop and test a small cost-effective portable didactic satellite called SATEDU for training purposes in the satellite technology field. This system is under patent process in México.

Currently is the team leader to develop the first Mexican Nanosatellite within an international network from several countries to develop the HUMSAT (humanitarian satellite) Nanosatellite constellation.

Esaú Vicente was part of the promotion group to generate the Mexican Space Agency which is now established.

Adán Espinoza Millán, Ph.DDr. Vicente-Vivas

Instituto de Ingeniería, University of Mexico Universidad Autònoma Metropolitana UAM, Mexico

Mr. Millán received the BS (2001) in Telecommunications Engineering from National University of Mexico (UNAM), M. Sc. (2006) in radio engineering from Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI). He is obtaining Ph.D. degree in the first trimester of 2011 at Moscow State University (MSU).

He participated in the Mexican Satex Microsatellite project to develop the Earth Station software. He worked in the mission control center of the 30 kg MSU Microsatellite "Universitetsky" and participated in the testing phase of the 55 kg MSU Microsatellite "Universitetsky II". His previous projects also include the mission control center of the satellite "Universitetsky II" in which he developed a telemetry satellite reception system with very low values of bit error rate (BER) based on ionospheric fading analysis. He has served in the Engineering Institute of University of Mexico as a Professor.

He has also worked as telecommunications project Mmanager for Redsha Telecommunications Company. Currently he works in the Metropolitan (University of Mexico Universidad Autònoma Metropolitana UAM).
