Dual Use Technologies Officer
In the sea that is the life of Fernando Pereira, there was a wave that opened the door to space. Until then, and for several years, he was head of service in multiple ships of the Portuguese Navy. He also commanded the NRP Rio Minho in familiar waters, close to Vila Praia de Âncora, from where he is from.
Before arriving to the Portuguese Space Agency, Portugal Space, he held a number of senior positions, which improved his human relations skills. Now, he embarks on this space adventure with the mastery that all that swell gave him.
He is a father of two, a boy and a girl, and can’t live his life without sports: in addition to triathlon, he still finds time to surf and to practice SUP (Stand Up Paddle).
