Pedro Costa

DUAL USE TECHNOLOGIES OFFICER

Pedro Costa, born in Sever do Vouga 44 years ago, graduated in Electrotechnical Engineering, has a Master’s degree in Security and Defence. Still, he always had his head on the Moon and has an immense passion for Space.

With the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the Portuguese Air Force, Pedro is fascinated by Space above and below the Kármán Line. While waiting for the opportunity of his trip into Space, he let the attraction for space technology and its value for Humanity, both in terms of technological evolution and sustainability, guide his professional path. Until he joined the Portuguese Space Agency, he was a Space Specialist in the Air Force.

Married and father of a daughter and a son, Pedro likes to regain his energy by escaping on motorbike trips or diving into the pages of a book.
