    Main activities and responsibilities

    VEGA is a European small launcher sponsored by ESA.

    I’ve started my job in the VEGA Program as support to the Assembly1 (A1) AIT/AIV responsible (6 months) and then I took the role of Assembly2 (A2) and Assembly3 (A3) responsible.

    As A2-A3 AIT/AIV responsible my main activities were:

    - To Issue and update Assemblies’ AIT documentation (SMO, AIT plan, Acceptance specification, user manuals, Interface Control Document, DID).

    - To guarantee the coherence of the Assemblies layout and to manage the design activities (one CATIA draftsman reported to me).

    -To Approve the procedures for Manufacturing and Integration, and to review subcontractors documentation, working with PA people in order to assure that all documents were compliant with the requirements.

    -To manage the Assy integration and acceptance activities accordingly with the customer (ESA) requirements.

    - To planning the integration and acceptance activities of the flight units on the basis of the availability of facility and personnel.

    - To participate to the integration activities of Vega’s Zefiro 9-A first and second firing test.

    As part of the AIT department:

    - I’ve been responsible for the Launcher Additional Telemetry layout and configuration.

    - I’ve issued the Launcher Mechanical and Pyro SMO and I’ve contributed to the finalization of the Operational Plan, and the preparatory work for the operations in Kourou (French Guyana) related to the test campaign and the flight campaign, playing design authority role.

    In parallel to my main tasks, I worked closely with PA becoming familiar with PA and QA working methods, rules and procedure:I prepared and took part to MRR (Manufacturing Readiness Review), DRB (Delivery Review Board), IRR (Integration Readiness Review), TRR (Test Readiness Review), BT (Technical Balance meetings with the costumer as technical authority). I treated anomalies and approved request for deviation and request for waiver (RFD/RFW). I revised the Vega procedures to guarantee the respect of the Safety requirements, acquiring a quite good knowledge about the safety aspects relevant to the launcher.
