Optical Systems Engineer

The optics – the mirrors and lenses of the ATLAS instrument – get oversight from Luis, who ensure they work as intended. ICESat-2’s instrument is the latest in a series of space-base laser altimeters that Luis has worked on, having helped design the instrument on the first ICESat mission, as well as ones designed to measure the moon, Mars and Mercury. He studied engineering physics and optics in school, and says he was at the right place at the right time to get a job at Goddard.
