Austin Cate

Austin works on electrical system integration in the aircraft. He is an electrical engineer by training but a systems engineer in practice. He designed wind turbines for over a decade, making sure the electrical control and generation systems integrated smoothly with the mechanical structures and systems. He later led a team focused on utility-scale energy storage, installing 20 MWh of batteries on multiple continents. He grew up on a small farm in central VT where he learned to fix almost anything.
