Tomas Navarro is a Space Segment Engineer at ESA (European Space Agency) working on the Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) programme where he is responsible for coordinating Artificial Intelligence activities for Space applications. Before joining ESA, Tomas worked at INMARSAT in satellite operations and as an R&D engineer for satellite & payload optimisation systems, focusing on genetic and machine learning algorithms used in operational geostationary communications satellites.
Tomas is also the co-inventor of an Artificial Intelligence-powered Space architecture able to improve response times in systems based on a centralised topology. His invention is planned to be used in Space systems to distribute intelligence across a multi-node network, aiming at optimising resources while reducing spacecraft control time. Tomas works also with ESA Business Applications to understand how to apply this architecture to Fintech systems.
