Tom Tessier, M. Sc. (Computer Engineering)
Prior to founding Solara Remote Data Delivery Incorporated, Mr. Tessier held various technical and management responsibilities in the space communications, operations and satellite system design field. Mr. Tessier has also worked in the agricultural sector on the Canadian prairies and is an enthusiastic outdoorsman.
As Manager of Computer Applications with Akjuit Aerospace Inc., (SpacePort Canada). Mr. Tessier was responsible for SpacePort data management, communications and information technology systems.
While with Bristol Aerospace Ltd., Mr. Tessier performed technical and project management duties with the Space Business Group. These included an assignment to a European Space Agency project, the Canadian SCISAT-1 satellite project Ground Control and Data System (GCDS) lead and as the Flight Operations Director (FOD) for the Launch and Early Orbit phase of SCISAT-1.
As President of an aerospace consultancy firm, Mr. Tessier oversaw programs as diverse as support for the ground segment of the University of California ( Berkeley) CHIPSat program, ground system design, support and training to Canadian companies and universities and to the Canadian Space Agency.
Now President of Solara Remote Data Delivery Incorporated, Mr. Tessier led the design, testing and marketing efforts for the first self-contained, commercial portable Iridium satellite-based GPS location device designed for harsh field conditions. The need for such a device for today's remote area workers and travellers was made apparent to Mr. Tessier while working in the Canadian arctic with SpacePort Canada at Churchill, Manitoba and on learning the experiences of people living in Nunavut Territory. Mr. Tessier also led the design and commissioning of the Solace Internet-based personnel tracking system and Solace Direct emergency monitoring centre software package now offered by Solara.
