Peter Klimas
Director of Infrastructure

Peter has over 10 years experience in developing terrestrial and space-based multi-disciplinary projects, ranging from large free-space optical systems to microelectronic components. To ensure product success, his focus is on extracting driving customer requirements and implementing cost effective solutions, to meet the capability of existing supply chains.

Peter has led high-performance R&D multidisciplinary technical teams developing next-generation terrestrial fiber-optic telecommunication components (based on indium phosphide planar-lightwave circuits, micro-optics and custom miniature thermal electric coolers), and led the structural analysis test campaigns for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Fine Guidance Sensor & Near-InfraRed Imager and Slitless Spectrograph (FGS/NIRISS).

Peter has published numerous articles in the domain of aerospace science. He holds a M.A.Sc in thermodynamics and computational fluid dynamics, and a B.Eng in structural mechanics from Carleton University’s Department of Aerospace Engineering.
