My name is Paul Kocyla. I studied Computer Science with Electrical Engineering at the RWTH-Aachen.
I was always passionate about space flight, artificial intelligence, electronics and autonomous systems, so I made several projects according to these topics. You can see them at www.pk-remote.com
Several years ago I got the opportunity to participate in a micro satellite project (Compass 2) on the FH Aachen University where I developed a camera based navigation module.
Now I am concentrating on developing small satellites based on the PocketQub standard.
In 2011 I joined a commercial foundation StaDoKo. We managed to launch our satellite Wren into orbit on Nov 21, 2013
I put much effort in its development to make it a fully functional spacecraft including an 8-Channel pulsed plasma thruster. You can get information about this project on the main page.
Currently I am developing a new noncommercial satellite which is quite simple and easy to assemble. I will make it open source in case of a successful launch and function.
