Recently, Luc was interviewed by Jason Kanigan (Cold Star Project) to talk about the Orekit project. The interview addresses subjects such as:

  • How the idea of Orekit was conceived
  • The way the technology required for Orekit was identified
  • Where the data for Orekit comes from
  • What Luc would do differently now from a process perspective compared to the project’s beginning
  • Whether Orekit will evolve into a different kind of program, with increased usage and data from more launches
  • How the open governance model for project management has worked, including accountability, and what unexpected thing has come out of it.

The interview is available on Youtube:

Thanks Jason Kanigan for this very interesting interview, which is a way to highlight Orekit.
