William Crowe

“William co-founded a company, High Earth Orbit Robotics, with a long-term vision to prospect and utilise asteroid resources and an immediate goal of using the same technology to inspect and resolve anomalies on satellites in orbit. His company counts the Royal Australian Air Force as a customer and went through UNSW’s Founder10x program. William has represented the company to win a place on the NSW/Austrade space bootcamp in Silicon Valley and win the Australian Space Research Conference’s Goldfish startup competition. He has a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from UNSW Sydney. His research focus was on the use of swarms of spacecraft to characterise asteroids during flyby. He won several international awards for his research, including the competitive Space Generation Advisory Council “Move an Asteroid” scholarship for his work on using small spacecraft in Earth orbit to intercept asteroids as they pass through the Earth-Moon system.”
