About Alexandru Csete

My name is Alex, full name Alexandru Csete, or OZ9AEC on the air.

I have a Master’s degree in physics from Aarhus University in Denmark. I did my master thesis work in experimental atomic physics at CERN, studying the interaction of slow anti-protons with matter.

After university I went to work in the European space industry for about 8 years. Here I worked as a software engineer with the on-board software for the ESA ATV “Jules Verne” and the Gaia missions.

Since 2011 I have been a development engineer at Thrane & Thrane (now Cobham Satcom) working with control systems and embedded software for stabilized Ku/Ka VSAT antennas. I’m proud to be on the team that brought the worlds best SAILOR and Explorer VSAT antennas to the market.

In addition to the above I am also:

I am occasionally available for consulting and freelance work within space, satcom and SDR. You can contact me at   if you are interested.
