Technology and Project Management

MSSL's Technology Management Group (TMG) is concerned with the development, management and exploitation of technology within an enterprise context, and carries out research, teaching and consultancy in relevant areas, underpinned by a strong background in project management.

We have particular expertise in the development of complex spacecraft instrumentation, for which the environmental constraints are extremely challenging, quality is of paramount importance and the budgets of time, cost and risk are tight.

We are interested in the practical side of managing technology developments, including managing the risk of technology projects, as well as the more creative aspects of planning technologies for uncertain futures, and developing innovative concepts for technology.
