Mr. Robertson will be in tasked with studying, determining and testing its proprietary materials that lose weight when they are electrically charged. Tony will be based in Huntsville, Alabama and will be conducting his work from his office and laboratory in Huntsville.
Glen A. Robertson has ~40 years of experience in propulsion, working as a jet mechanic in the Navy (1974-1978), as a solid propulsion test lead for the Naval Weapons Center at China Lake, CA (1984-1987), as an Aerospace Technologist in the Propulsion Directorate at the NASA –Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, AL (1987-2018) on the Space Shuttle solid rocket boosters and main liquid engines. While at the MSFC, he helped establish the Advanced Propulsion Research Center and conducted/supported many advanced propulsion projects. Before retiring from NASA in 2018, he supported the Valve and Thrust Vector control groups on the SLS program.
Mr. Robertson holds 10 patents and has published over 20 papers on propulsion and power generation. He established and was president (2008 – 2011) of the Non-Profit, Institute for the Advanced Studies in the Space Propulsion and Energy Sciences, which was established to hold the Science, Propulsion, and Energy Sciences International Forum – for which he was the chair. In 2017 he established and is president of the Non-Profit, Exotic Propulsion Organization, which was established to investigate the basic physics of future space propulsion concepts.
Mr. Robertson holds a BS in Physics and Mathematics (1984) from the University of North Alabama and a MS in Operations Research with a minor in Project Management (1993) from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Kepler is excited to have Mr. Robertson on the Kepler team and feels that Tony will greatly add to the depth of expertise already existing at Kepler. With his help, Kepler has another seasoned veteran in both the propellant-less and plasma-based fields.
