    Experience

    2011 – Present   Deimos-1 Flight Dynamics Engineer at Elecnor Deimos Imaging

    ·         Development of a tool to compute the probability of collision from CSM/CDM messages, as well as generating 2D/3D plots to ease the analysis of the encounter.

    ·         Automation of collision avoidance tasks, in order to generate daily reports with relevant information (miss distances, evolution of the encounters over time, etc.)

    ·         Analysis of CSM/CDMs, encounter risk assessment, avoidance strategy definition and implementation (when needed). Post-maneuver analysis.

    ·         Orbit assessment. Long-term analysis (MSAFE95/50/5) of the orbital parameters, and definition of a strategy to maintain them within mission-specific bounds.

    ·         Development of basic Mission Analysis tools to compute GSD, RC, Revisit Time, Coverage, etc. and other Flight Dynamics utilities.

    ·         Analysis of available δv on-board, impact of firing time on Isp and Thrust, bookkeeping of fuel mass used, troubleshooting of the PS, etc.

    ·         Documentation of available Flight Dynamics source-code.

     

    2011 – Present   Deimos-1 Operations Engineer at Elecnor Deimos Imaging

    ·         Detection, analysis and resolution of anomalies detected both in Ground & Flight segments.

    ·         Continued analysis of the status of the different subsystems and components of the satellite.

    ·         Routine payload planning operations: conflict solving, capacity assessment, generation of commands to be uploaded, etc.

    ·         Definition and development of operational tools both on my own (i.e. log parser to detect error messages) or by leading a small team (i.e. web-based application to visualize telemetry data, generate reports, for different input sources and satellites).

    ·         Continuous development of training courses, meetings and informal talks in order to ease the sharing of knowledge between the members of the Operation's Team and strengthen the knowledge required to operate safely.

    ·         On-call support

     

    2014 – Present   Deimos-2 Flight Dynamics Engineer at Elecnor Deimos Imaging

    ·         Definition of strategy to achieve the nominal orbit after launch, taking into account both operational and S/C constraints.

    ·         Generation of maneuvering-specific commands to be uploaded to the S/C.

    ·         Analysis of GPS data to determine the evolution of the orbital parameters and the effects of individual maneuvers.

    ·         Collision Avoidance tasks (coordination with JSpOC, generation of ephemeris, CDM analysis, risk assessment…).

     

    2014 – Present   Deimos-2 Operations Engineer at Elecnor Deimos Imaging

    ·         Detection and follow-up of anomalies during LEOP & Commissioning phase, and technical discussion at relevant meetings (LEOP Review, FSAR)
