Meshack is a space system engineering graduate from the Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne. He worked on designing a single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) vehicle. He is the Space Applications Training Officer at the African Union Commission, overseeing the institutional and human capacity development of the Global Monitoring for the Environment and Security in Africa (GMES & Africa).
Meshack’s emphasis has been on integrating ICT with Earth Observation in areas like virtualisation and cloud computing. He is further acknowledged for his significant contribution to defining the African Outer Space Programme and the subsequent establishment of the African Space Agency. He is passionate about seeing emerging space countries play key roles in the NewSpace era, including active participation in the cis-lunar economy.
Meshack contributes to global bodies of expertise as a member of two study groups of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Study Group 4.19 on Promoting Global Space Knowledge and Expertise in Developing Countries and IAA SG 4.26 on Cubesat Interface. He co-led the Space Technology for Disaster Management (STDM) Project of SGAC. He is an Alumnus of The Lindau Nobel Laureates Programme in Physics. He is a Graduate and instructor of the Cansat Leader Training Program (CLTP), which inspired him to co-found Omarichet Space to develop indigenous skills in satellite engineering and commercial communication satellites.
Meshack also leads research efforts in the Climate Alliance project awarded by Space Frontier Foundation to study the behaviour of perovskites as the new generation solar cells that will accelerate the realisation of space-based solar power projects. He is also the co-founder of Irradianz, a US-based startup whose ambition is to scale the long-range wireless power transmission for duo applications on Earth and in space.
