Stuart Eves is the Senior Account Manager (Military Systems) at Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) in Guildford. He spent 16 years with the UK Ministry Of Defence, in various space-related posts, before joining SSTL in January 2004.

During his time with the MOD, Stuart initiated the TopSat satellite programme, which is now on-orbit conducting its Earth-observation mission. Indeed TopSat has been so successful that the engineering model of the satellite now forms part of the recently re-vamped space gallery at the Science Museum in London.

Stuart has an MSc in Astrophysics, a PhD in constellation design, and has been a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society for more than 15 years.
