    CV

    Summary

    An Optical AIT specialist with a solid background in spacecraft engineering and an international curriculum with 5 year work experience in the European space sector.

     

    Work experience

     

    From July 2012 onwards

    Optical AIT Engineer at SSTL (a company of the Airbus Defence & Space group)

    Assembly integration and test of optical components for space EO imagers and scientific instruments. Deep involvement in the phase C/D of space missions with expertise in the characterisation (through CMM and interferometers), alignment and integration of optical flight components and OGSE in a clean room environment ISO 5 (class 100) and ISO 6 (class 1000).

    In the last year I’ve been building and testing the FM focal plane, fold mirror and split prism sub-assemblies for DMC-3, a constellation of three 1 meter ground resolution imagery satellites characterised by a completely innovative optical solution. I’ve been supporting as well the MTF test campaign to characterise the imager performance before integration to the platform.

    I have been exposed also to international projects led by ESA like Earthcare MSI and Galileo FOC taking part in test campaigns and providing technical expertise to the costumer.

    Currently I am Work Package Manager of the DMC Split Prism, responsible for the delivery of the subsystem according to the agreed technical requirements, schedule and cost.

     

    From July 2010 to December 2011

    Optical Instrumentation Engineer at CNES

The ongoing research activities on this concept aim to provide, in the near future, totally static and highly stabilized instruments for Earth observation satellites. Support to everyday activities in a clean room environment ISO 8 (class 100000), actively following all the steps towards the complete implementation of the breadboard. Involvement in studying, designing and realising optomechanical solutions for the instrument; handling the cryogenic/vacuum system for the detector; optical alignment, optical instrumentation characterization; data acquisition and analysis.
