A promising start to a new space career

Prim Pasuwan joined SSC in June this year and is one of the latest additions to the team. Only a couple of weeks into her new SSC career, Prim was awarded the SGAC World Satellite Business Week (WSBW) Scholarship for her essay within In-Space Logistics.

“I submitted my essay, hoping for the best. I felt so thrilled and honored when I learned that my essay was selected. And the opportunity to attend the World Satellite Business Week was definitely a big plus,” says Prim Pasuwan, Software Engineer at SSC

The scholarship is issued by Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and Euroconsult, and part of the award is a fully paid attendance to one of the largest satellite conferences; World Satellite Business Week in Paris (WSBW).

Prim’s journey is truly an ambitious story. From Bangkok, Thailand, she came to Lund for her master’s degree in 2014. From there, Prim later pursued a Ph.D. in particle physics at Stockholm University in the Swedish capital. And even though her space career has just begun, it has started off in the best possible way with a renowned industry award.

The jury awarded their scholarships based on the quality level of all the applied essays. Prim’s essay How do you expect a sustainable in-space-logistics infrastructure to be in 2040? focuses on the future of sustainable space.

At SSC, Prim works as a software engineer within the company’s ground station network division. She is currently part of the NODES project (Network of Optical stations for Data transfer to Earth from Space) which aims at developing an optical ground network for data repatriation services for the growing optical communication market.

“I really love the NODES project and the possibility to design things from scratch within this fast-moving industry segment. And the team members have been great and supportive which really makes my workdays enjoyable,” says Prim Pasuwan.

Congratulations and welcome to SSC, Prim!
