The Future of Innovation: Inovor’s 2024 intern cohort!

In December 2023, Inovor Technologies warmly welcomed a cohort of exceptional engineering students – our latest interns – to our headquarters at Lot Fourteen.

Meet Linh Co, Shaghaf, Sabine, Justyce, Shradha and Jake!

When these young talents walked in on their first day, bubbling with enthusiasm and curiosity, we knew that this would be an incredibly rewarding journey. Over the summer, the interns tackled challenging engineering projects under the supervision of our senior engineers, dipped their toes in some corporate affairs and project management, and even visited Southern Launch, DST and more as part of industry field trips!

“I remember coming across abbreviations like SSA [space situational awareness] for the first time in 2019 when I did my year 10 work experience with Inovor and two other startups at Lot Fourteen. It feels like a full circle moment to now be working alongside the team and contributing to the projects!” – Shradha Angrish

Currently going into their final year of mechanical engineering with a double degree in physics and computer science respectively, Sabine and Linh Co did their internship project on the design, analysis, and verification of structural components for a 6U CubeSat.

“My internship at Inovor Technologies has been an amazing experience, offering me a glimpse into South Australia’s vibrant space industry and its technical innovations. Space is hard, and I’ve had the opportunity to grow so much over the summer.” – Linh Co Bui

On the electrical engineering side, we had Jake Delyster designing a line impedance stabilisation network (LISN) to help with electromagnetic capability (EMC) tests in Apogee modules and helping troubleshoot and repair satellite hardware.

“I enjoyed being able to work on Inovor’s vertically integrated capabilities across the entire project lifecycle, from conceptual design and PCB [printed circuit board] layout to testing and verification. Having the freedom to make my own design decisions and get feedback from experts helped me develop as a professional.” – Jake Delyster

Justyce and Shradha developed their understanding of orbital mechanics through programmatically validating and analysing data for the SpIRIT mission, using Python. Meanwhile, Shaghaf contributed to the systems engineering team by refining test procedures for spacecraft subsystems and developing project schedules.

Alongside their technical projects, Justyce, Shradha and Shaghaf also had the opportunity to apply their skills in business development and public relations. This included event organisation, graphic design and video editing, drafting press releases and more.

“Inovor has shown through their collaborative missions, capabilities, and activities in Australia’s space sector that it really is about listening, learning, and inspiring. I have learnt a lot from this internship and hope to do amazing things in the space sector.” – Justyce Manton

Inovor Technologies’ university student internship programs run annually from December to February. Keep an eye on our socials or the careers page to hear about applications for the 2024-25 intake!
