ABOUT MIKE:

As a 1980 alumnus in biosystems engineering, Mike works as a chief engineer and program manager at Teledyne Brown Engineering in Huntsville, Alabama. As program manager, he leads a highly skilled team of design and analysis and test engineers developing the Multiple System for Earth Sensing (MUSES). A two-axis gimbaled pointing system installed on the International Space Station in early 2015 allows earth imaging companies and research scientists to place instruments on to the MUSES and regularly capture images of agricultural, humanitarian, scientific and commercial interest. The MUSES platform is to remain on the ISS for five years or longer.

Auburn Memories

My second favorite Auburn memory was when Dean Foy taught the freshman class how to properly perform the War Eagle yell. I was brand new to big campus life and very nervous around all those cute southern girls going through rush. But when we yelled War Eagle in unison in Foy Union, I became an Auburn Tiger instantaneously! Of course my most favorite memory was when I went on my first blind date as a college student with my lovely bride, Becky Canterbury Soutullo.
