Guillaume Marrackhi

Systems Engineer

"Everyone I’ve worked with so far was ready to spend time to share their experience and their knowledge."

University attended & degree course studied:

ISAE-Supaero (Toulouse, France) - Major Space Systems and Launchers, Sciences of the Universe. 

Why did you initially apply to Inmarsat’s Technology Development Programme?

I think the space industry is evolving faster than it ever did before, especially the telco segment. It is an industry where everything has to be (re-)invented and Inmarsat was the perfect place to play in the premier league! Being able to rotate for 2 years in various technical divisions of such a big player was the kind of opportunity I was looking for as a young grad, to quickly gain experience in various domains.

What are some of the projects you’ve been involved in and what part have you played?

I have been involved in several projects within the Space Segment division, and within the System Engineering division, ranging from advanced predictive traffic modelling, to disruptive payload technologies assessments, to simulations of innovative Satellite Access Station architectures.

Any highlights so far?

Meeting Tim Peake is not the kind of encounter I will forget… We often get invited to different events/conferences to widen our skills beyond the technical aspects. We met ESA astronaut Tim Peake during the New Scientist Live exhibition in London. We also were invited to the finals of the SeedStars World competition in Geneva, where several start-ups from all around the world were competing for a space prize sponsored by Inmarsat and AP Swiss.

How would you describe the Inmarsat environment to prospective applicants?

Inmarsat’s London Headquarters are such a multicultural and vibrant place to be. Everyone I’ve worked with so far was ready to spend time to share their experience and their knowledge.
