Generation Orbit Launch Services, Inc. (GO) is pleased to welcome Mr. E. Glenn Case IV to the team. As a Senior Engineer, Mr. Case will be responsible for a host of tasks including the design, analysis, manufacture, and integration of launch vehicle primary and secondary structures, fluid systems, and propulsion systems. He will also develop and execute test procedures for verification and validation of systems and components.

Previously, Mr. Case worked at Blue Origin as a Propulsion Design and Development Engineer within the BE-3 and BE-4 engine programs.  Beyond this, Mr. Case also performed engine system level risk analysis and served as the propulsion lead for CAD and PLM tools.  In addition to his experience with Blue Origin and other new-space companies, Mr. Case also held a position with Jacobs Engineering at NASA’s Stennis Space Center within the Test Operations Group.  There he performed fluid/structural analysis and shepherded test facility design efforts for the J-2X engine integration at the A-2 test stand. At Stennis, he was also charged with developing analytic tools to model high flow, high pressure cryogenic propellant supply systems. Mr. Case holds a Master of Science degree from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University with a concentration in propulsion and a minor in Computational Science and Engineering.  He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tulane University.

When asked about the start of his tenure at GO, Mr. Case commented, “What we’re trying to accomplish here at Generation Orbit is both challenging and incredibly inspiring. Small launch is an increasingly important segment of spaceflight, one in which GO will be a trailblazer. I’m thrilled to take part in this fantastic journey.”

“Glenn not only brings a commanding knowledge of launch vehicle structures and mechanisms, but also branches into other disciplines with his experience in propulsion and fluid systems” commented GO’s COO A.J. Piplica. “Adding Glenn as part of our team allows us to broaden our horizons in terms both our internal product development efforts, but also in terms of the core capabilities we bring to our customers.”
