Some badges

Today I was thinking I would like to put together all the cool badges I have had so far, this is, Alcatel Space's, JAXA's and ESA's. I have been looking into quite old pictures and I have found some photos of them! Therefore, I have decided to put them here, to try to blur the feeling some people have of me never having been working at those places ;-)

I have also noticed that I have been progressively changing over time... Is it aging??
So, there we go...

Alcatel Alenia Space (AAS/Toulouse): This was my first experience abroad and was quite enriching both personally and professionally. It was from Feb 2005 to Aug 2005. Here I was working on multipactor effect on filters and my work led to a patent pending.


Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA/ Tsukuba Space Center): Here is when I was around in Japan last summer, this is, from May 2006 to Aug 2006. It was a quite short but intense experience... I was working around 16 hours a day to finish my project and travelling every weekend, sometimes as far as Kyoto or Osaka. I think this badge was really cool with all the Japanese characters around and the small astronaut. My work dealt with helical antennas for telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C).



And finally,

European Space Agency (ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, Netherlands): This is where I have been the last 6 or 7 months and where I will be until at least October 2008. Quite a long time!! My work is about EM modelling of Schottky diodes and design of mixers working at frequencies as high as 400 GHz. Later I will do other stuff about (sub-)millimeter waves. They are not for telecom but for Earth Observation and Science...


Eso es todo amigos!

I still think you made up all these pictures with photoshop and you are shut in a bunker in Almansa pretending you are a very TOCHO guy.
That is my theory...

Aló! luiSete almanSa al habla! Acabo de recibir tu mail y he leído todo el blog (los de almansa tambien sabemos inglés! incluso algunos nos hacemos maestros...) Me gusta la idea de que pongas de vez en cuando algo y podamos leerte, ya te he agregado a favoritos.
Estás hecho un crack, has estado en sitios que se me traba la lengua solo de leerlos!
En fin que segun veo, haces parabólicas (jejejej). Sigue así, eres el orgullo de la generación Naranjito!!!
Espero que entre el comentario, ya que no soy usuario de blogger destos...
Bueno, recibe un abrazo de los que nos acordamos de ti por aqui abajo, que seguro que lo agradecerás.

PD: llevamos 2 dias de verano ya... que buen estar! Te dedico una tarrinica de la ibense a tu salud!

Un abrazo!

no creo que sea buena idea publicar fotos de las acreditaciones. Cómo `compañera` tuya en ESA (en mi caso en ESAC, Madrid), mi recomendación es que con acreditaciones de seguridad seamos lo más discretos posible.
Por otra parte, me gusta tu blog. que envidia, esos viajes~!
