NASA's Juno mission to Jupiter, which has been in orbit around the gas giant since July 4, 2016, will remain in its current 53-day orbit for the remainder of the mission. This will allow Juno to accomplish its science goals, while avoiding the risk of a previously-planned engine firing that would have reduced the spacecraft's orbital period to 14 days. "Juno is healthy, its science instruments are fully operational, and the data and images we've received are nothing short of amazing," said Th...

    System and Telecom Engineer

     

    Personal Profile

     

    I am a qualified Telecom Engineer with 6 years testing experience, including 4 years in the French Telecom industry. My contribution to Telecom companies such as Indra Espacio, Texas Instruments and Philips in particular proved to be a success. I facilitated digital and analogue validation tests of a UMTS modem ASIC by automating the testing environment via GPIB and UART standards. It resulted by a significant gain of time=money to the company. I have gained skills in SIM card connectivity validation of a Low-Cost GPRS ASIC. I possess a scientific, analytic and a proactive mind and I am fond of new technological advancements. After 4 years experience in France, I decided to expand my experience to international markets and enhance my level of expertise as a creative Telecom Engineer. I have worked 1.5 year in a start-up company based in Cambridge, UK. I had the opportunity to work on Wireless USB, which is a new emerging technology. After this first successful experience abroad, I got a second opportunity in space industry in Barcelona, Spain as a Software Engineer. I have well developed interpersonal and technical skills and I am confident in my capabilities in delivering a first class job in whichever capacity I am employed in. My interpersonal and communication skills allow me to efficiently interact with customers or co-worker. I am able to communicate fluently using english, spanish and french languages.

    My ultimate aim is to change my current position to some new management activities for creating and developing innovative projects. I will be an asset to any organisation that employs me and will successfully contribute to the development of both Software and/or Hardware concepts and solutions.
