The following are the videos of the talk which Lance Ginner (K6GSJ) gave on March 11, 2014 at Stanford University.
The following are the processed (cut and compressed by Robert KG4UHM) videos of this talk.
Both videos have the same content, but in a different resolution.
The following are the original high-resolution video files
which have originally been recorded with the camera.
Each of these 5 files has a size of around 1 GB and a length of around 15 min.
This Tuesday evening, the Stanford Amateur Radio Club will be hosting a distinguished guest speaker, Mr. Lance Ginner, K6GSJ, who will be giving a fascinating talk on the design and launch of the first Amateur Radio satellite.
All are welcome to attend. I hope to see you there!

Title: Engineering and Launch of the First Non Military Satellite
Speaker: Lance Ginner, Engineer, Lockheed Missiles and Space Division
Abstract: While working as an engineer on imagery intelligence satellites in the Corona and recently declassified Hexagon reconnaissance programs, Lance Ginner was instrumental in engineering and launching the first amateur radio satellite, OSCAR 1. A series of ever more sophisticated amateur satellites followed, often built with the use of "spare" parts or "after hours" lab access from intelligence satellite programs. The success of OSCAR 1 paved the way for over 70 successors built and launched by numerous entities.
Short Bio: Lance Ginner graduated from California Polytechnic College and College of the Sequoias in 1959. Following his graduation, he joined Lockheed Missiles and Space Division in Sunnyvale, CA, starting a 37 year career working on classified satellite systems and payloads. While at Lockheed, Lance became involved in Project OSCAR and helped build OSCAR 1, the first non-military satellite launched into space.
