NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has produced a unique composite image of comet Siding Spring as it made its never-before-seen close passage of a comet by Mars. Siding Spring, officially designated Comet C/2013 A1, made its closest approach to Mars at 2:28 p.m. EDT on Oct. 19, at a distance of approximately 87,000 miles. That is about one-third of the distance between Earth and the moon. At that time, the comet and Mars were about 149 million miles from Earth. The comet image is a composite o...

It might look like a spoked wheel or even a "Chakram" weapon wielded by warriors like "Xena," from the fictional TV show, but this ringed galaxy is actually a vast place of stellar life. A newly released image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the galaxy NGC 1291. Though the galaxy is quite old, roughly 12 billion years, it is marked by an unusual ring where newborn stars are igniting. "The rest of the galaxy is done maturing," said Kartik Sheth o...

    Summary of Expertise

    Since Federico started his scientific education, he has never limited himself to the Italian scene but he has always looked at Europe as a big opportunity.

    As he is an expansive person, the contact with different environments and cultures have always challenged him. He is interested in enlarging his vision on the world of both the society and the job of a foreign country. Nevertheless he is interested in the possibility of learning and improving another language other than English and French.

    Work in a foreign country is a big opportunity for him and, although the difficulties that this imply, he is not frightened by them. He is resourceful and willing in affording new realities.

    Federico holds a Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering, final mark 110/110 cum laude, obtained at “Politecnico di Torino”. During the master courses he has gained excellent knowledge in the following fields: Astrodynamics, Space environment and equipment, Interplanetary trajectories, Satellite attitude determination and control, Satellite structures, Robotics, Space missions and projects, Electronics systems for space communication, Guidance navigation and control systems, Numerical and analytical methods of applied mathematics, Gas dynamics, Spacecraft propulsion, Software engineering and Computer sciences.

    Federico has a good level of computer skills (languages C, Fortran, HTML, perl), and good experience with UNIX, SOLARIS and LINUX operating systems.

    Federico also has a very good experience with mathematical packages and visualization tools, like Matlab and STK. He used many Matlab tool packages as Simulink, Real Time Workshop and Statistic toolbox.

    Federico already has hand-on experience in flight dynamics and control systems modelling and mission analysis thanks to his working experience with ELV. During this working experience, he developed and maintained the complete 6DoF simulator of the VEGA LV and the data processing tools linked to the simulation results, he also worked in the definition and implementation of the ACS control law. He also had to write software documentation and monthly reports.

    Federico is systems-minded and he has a good understanding of general space mission constraints (data, power, attitude, thermal etc), as well as of related spacecraft hardware and software. He has considerable initiative, a proactive attitude, flexibility and independence in executing the assigned tasks.

    Career History

    From 02/2010                          ELV S.p.A., Colleferro (RM), Italy

    Federico main activities and responsibilities are to develop simulation and data processing tools for the Guidance Navigation and Control system.

    From 02/2010     Guidance Navigation and Control system analyst

    Federico was assigned to the optimization, upgrade and maintenance of the complete 6DoF simulator of the VEGA LV. That simulator is Matlab and Simulink based, the optimization work started with writing some S-function to substitute complex blocks group. The upgrade activities were mainly focused in add the possibility of multi-payload mission and in the use of different Flight Program systems.  

    Federico was also assigned to accomplish the task of developing and maintaining the data processing tools. Those tools are mainly based in Matlab and Simulink but also uses perl and HTML scripts. Those tools allow to convert ASCII, LACIS and txt data from different simulators in Matlab matrix and compare them. Them also allow to verify that the simulation results fulfil the requirements defined in the avionics specification of the LV.  

    Federico was also assigned to the development, tuning and implementation of the ACS control algorithm. The algorithm is written in #C language, all the development, tuning and stability tools are mainly based in Matlab and Simulink. 

    Federico was also one of the focal-point during the flight data explotation, he developed the flight data analysis tool and follow all the GNC post-flight analysis.

    Federico was very motivated and hard-working. He has a solid technical background and he was able to work autonomously already from the very first weeks. He participated in several meetings with GN&C experts from ELV, ESA, ASTRIUM and CNES, in which he contributed with his own ideas and opinions. Soon he produced a first SW prototype that was successively refined and that passed several validation tests with success.

     

    09/2009 – 02/2010                    Faiveley Transport Italy, Piossasco(TO), Italy

    Federico was a trainee. His main activities and responsibilities were to develop a Visual Basic tool to automatically perform all the brake system (for railway systems) calculations .

    09/2009 – 02/2010        Brake system calculations

    Federico was assigned the task of design a tool that allows to perform all the brake system calculations. That tool results were all the brake system performances in different conditions also degraded and the thermal condition during braking. That tool was developed in Visual basic.

    09/2007 – 07/2009                    Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy

    Federico was a assistant professor for the national and international courses of Computer Science and Automatic Control.
