Systems Engineer, Human-Systems Integration
Lockheed Martin Space
Sarosh Hussain is a Systems Engineer working Human-Systems Integration and Human Factors for Lockheed Martin on the Orion Spacecraft and Human Landing System. In this role, Sarosh is responsible for ensuring human capabilities and limitations are effectively and affordably integrated with system design and development. He employs a set of technical and managerial processes that lead design efforts with human concerns weighed alongside systems concerns.
Previously, Sarosh served two internships at NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) and Ames Research Center (ARC). At JSC, he researched the effects of Galactic Cosmic Radiation and Solar Particle Events on spacesuit pressure garments. The impacts of his research are reflected in the softgoods patterning designs for exploration-class spacesuits. At ARC, Sarosh contributed to the design and development of TES-5, a research cubesat studying innovations such as passive de-orbiting using an exo-brake for quick sample returns from the ISS and LEO.
Sarosh graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering and will be receiving a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering (focusing in Bioastronautics) from the University of Colorado Boulder in December 2020.
