in the news: UAH alumnus’ engineering work at Teledyne Brown gains recognition


When the chief engineer at your firm writes to your alma mater to extol your work on a complex project now aboard the International Space Station (ISS), you must be doing things right.

That’s what happened for Paul Galloway (BS, Chemical Engineering, ’83; MS, Mechanical Engineering, ’90), a senior systems engineer and program manager at Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE), recently. TBE Chief Engineer Roy Rice wrote praising Galloway’s contributions at TBE to University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) College of Engineering Dean Shankar Mahalingam, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department Chair Keith Hollingsworth, Propulsion Research Center Director Robert Frederick and Professor Frank Wessling.

"His accomplishments on a recent project which has culminated in a capability installed on the International Space Station exemplify his skills, expertise, and professionalism," wrote Rice.

That project is the Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES), an endeavor Galloway has been involved with since 2012. MUSES hosts earth-viewing science instruments such as high-resolution digital cameras and hyperspectral imagers. It also provides a test bed for technology demonstration and technology maturation by providing long-term access to the space environment.
