I founded MISHAAL Aerospace in 2010. Mishaal Aerospace specializes in launch vehicle (rocket) development for space applications. We design, develop and launch our own line of rockets. The M-Rocket line is the first generation of cost-effective rockets developed to send small satellites (<=500 kg) to low earth orbit.
My professional experience and areas of expertise include: aerodynamics, wind tunnel testing, vehicle design, predictive simulation and analysis and rocket stage-separation analysis, with a strong focus on computational tool development.
I earned Bachelor of Science Degrees in Aerospace Engineering and in Applied Mathematics from Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, and a Master of Science Degree in Aerospace Engineering, also from Florida Institute of Technology. My academic focus included: experimental and analytical aerodynamics, rocket design and nuclear thermal propulsion.
