     Current job:Satellite Communication Systems Engineer
     Employment Term:Permanent
     Job location:Europe only
     Date available:
     Industry:Satellite Manufacturers and Subcontractors, ,
     KeywordsSystem Engineering of Ground/Space Segment Subsystems and Components

    Since September 1999 up to now

    I have been working in Telespazio, leader in Space Telecommunications and Applications. My work experience in Telespazio can be divided in the following phases.

    • Currently I am involved in System Engineering of Gokturk program. I’m responsible for Ciphering/Deciphering Crypto Equipment for Satellite to Ground Communication. My work involves: subsystem and component definition, analysis activities, specification generation, requirements and statement of work definition, implementation/ verification of technical documentation, supplier management, ICD management, test supervision. I’m interfacing with TAS-F (Satellite provider) for Satellite aspects and with our Turkish and German Crypto sub-contractors of the Space and Ground Ciphering/Deciphering Crypto Equipment.
    • Since 2003 up to 2008, I worked in System Engineering for the Ground Segment Development of Cosmo-Skymed Satellite program, dedicated to Earth Observation (for Civil and Military applications). I was responsible of the Communication Subsystem, whose function is to guarantee communications in compliance with very stringent Security requirements. My job involved: system and requirement analysis, technical documentation management, supplier management, AIV activities, test activity supervision.  
    • Previously I had responsibility for preparation of several proposals in order to respond to Invitations to Tender emitted by ESA and ASI. They regarded several studies and development of innovative projects, as the development of a multi-mission space centre for the simultaneous management of several space programs and the development of a multi-function and multi-frequency control centre. I was involved both in technical and management aspects, as the research of possible industrial partners, the technical contributions preparations, the cost evaluation, the coordination of the internal and external contributions.In this period I worked also for the upgrade of measurement test bench for in-orbit satellite test.
    • Previously I worked in the development of the Astrolink system, whose mission was to provide wide-band communications services for multimedia application. In particular I was involved in the Astrolink Ground Segment program in the design, development and implementation of the Telemetry, Tracking e Command Stations. I was responsible for the following activities: Analysis activities (Operational and Inherent Availability, Link Budget, Spare analysis, RF system performance evaluation); Suppliers management for the technical aspects, for all the TT&C subsystems; Technical documentation development; Test supervision (Radiofrequency Interface measurements, RF test).

    November 1996 – September 1999

    Before working in Telespazio, I worked in Alenia Spazio, for three years, as Microwave Antenna Designer for Space Telecommunications. In particular, I obtained knowledge in the design of R.F. Chains and Waveguide components, working for many programs as responsible of the electrical design. My job consisted in:

    • Design of hardware (Antennas and waveguide components), using software packages from TICRA or internally developed (based on Mode Matching Technique and optimisation tools): I had the responsibility of the design of feeds and RF Microwave chain in several programs (for Space Loral, Aerospatiale, SES, Intelsat);
    • Supervision of hardware tests (for evaluation of RF patterns, multipaction effect, Intermodulation products);
    • Development of software for the design of satellite antennas and microwave components in the frequency range 2-50 GHz.
    • Research and Development activities: The research activity was focused on antennas fed by radiating elements arrays (for multibeam coverages) and on innovative microwave radiative structures, as circular and square highly-efficiency corrugated feeds for satellite antennas.
    • I had also experience in the problems connected to the transmission of high power levels and in the suppression of intermodulation products for microwave components.  


    May 1996: Electronic Engineering Degree (110/110 cum laude) with specialization in ‘Electromagnetism’ obtained at the Politecnico di Torino, when I was 24. Title of the thesis: "Electromagnetic Analysis of Discontinuities in the Waveguides" (Relatore: Prof. R. Orta, Prof. R. Tascone, Ing. D. Trinchero). 


    • O.S: Windows (Winword, Excel, Power Point), Sun, Unix, Ms-Dos
    • Languages: Fortran, Pascal, C
    • Tools: AGI Satellite Tool Kit; Avsim (simulator for availability analysis); Matlab; TICRA tools for design and analysis of microwave antennas and waveguide components (Grasp, Champ, Cobra).

    • “High Peak Efficiency Square Stepped and Circular Corrugated Horns”, for “Millennium Conference on Antennas & Propagation”, Davos, Aprile 2000.


    • “Satellite Communication Systems”, CEI-Europe (Continuing Education Institute), Barcelona, Spain, 16-20 Oct. 2000
    • “Microwave filters and multiplexer design”, for the ‘European Microwave Week 98’ organized by Estec, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, RAI Congress Centre, 5-9 October 1998.
