Dr. Mata was the lightning subject matter expert and technical lead of Kennedy Space
Center’s Advanced Electronics and Technology Development Laboratory for 12 years.
Among other things he directed the program that designed the lightning protection
and lightning instrumentation systems for NASA’s Launch Complex 39B, perhaps the
most sophisticated lightning protection and monitoring systems in the world. Dr.
Mata is the recipient of many awards, including NASA’s Distinguished Public Service
Medal and the NASA KSC Engineer/Scientist of the Year Award.
He has also worked extensively with the International Center for Lightning Research and Technology (ICLRT) to evaluate and refine lightning instrumentation systems used to monitor high-tech vehicles, payloads, and high-value assets at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral Air Force Base, and other Department of Defense locations.
