The founder and Managing Director of Stellar Engines Ltd is Kelvin F. Long. He has a Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering, a Master's Degree in Astrophysics and undertook a Doctoral program in laser plasma interactions and inertial confinement fusion. He has worked for the UK Ministry of Defence for over 12 years. He is also a Chartered Member Institute of Physics, an experienced author and editor. He manages all of the projects and programs under Stellar Engines, and ensures their delivery to the client.



Stellar Engines Ltd has access to a wide network of scientists, physicists, engineers, artists that it can pull together behind any one specific project.  The role of SEL is to manage that team and the delivery of the project, and all contractors are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement and undergo careful due diligence before they are allowed to work on any SEL associated projects. This model has been developed over several years and has been shown to work well. We adopt the Skunkworks management philosophy. The maintenance of a small bespoke team, used on a contract only basis, also helps to ensure an efficient project but also keeping the overall costs at a competitive level. All of our contractors are highly qualified, usually degree trained or above, and each has a specialist area of expertise which is of use to us.
