SUMMARY OF SKILLS
Telecommunication satellite design.
Team, schedule and budget management. Telecommunication satellite integration and testing.
Satellite launch and early operations. Satellite station keeping operations.
Integrated and tested Eurostar satellite for ASTRIUM on schedule and at best cost. Managed a team of 35 persons.
Completed on-time delivery of operational flight dynamics software for TAS Spacebus and CNES LEO satellite. Managed a team of 17 persons.
February 2011 – Today : EADS ASTRIUM telecommunication system engineer.
Design and customize E3000 platform and payload to fulfill customers specific requirements in proposal phases and start of engineering phases.
June 2003 – January 2011: EADS ASTRIUM telecommunication satellite integration Manager.
Coordinate Assembly, Integration and Testing operations.
Lead a clean room team on the biggest telecom satellite ever manufactured by Astrium.
Directed integration operations of several Eurostar telecommunication satellites, including launch campaigns and RF tests for Arabsat, Telesat, SES, Eutelsat –Ka-sat.
Coordinate technical compliance, quality control, schedule and financial management.
Lead a 35-member team.
Interface with design office and spacecraft engineering team to optimize integration sequence and schedule.
Used Lean Manufacturing process.
From the preparation before platform structure delivery, finishing at the last operations before launch, this position requires motivation, rigor, organization and leadership.
April 2001 – May 2003: EADS ASTRIUM geosynchronous mission analyses Manager.
Managed LEOP (launch & early operations phase) and station keeping mission analyses of several ASTRIUM telecommunication satellites.
Computed propellant budgets of Eurostar satellites in design phase.
Supervised remaining lifetime computation of several ASTRIUM Eurostar in-orbit spacecraft.
As lifetime and launched satellite mass are crucial data for customers this position requires diplomacy and rationale.
May 1995 – March 2001: COMMUNICATION and SYSTEM, progressed from spaceflight dynamics Engineer to project Manager
Developed ADCS operational software for military and civil observation CNES spacecraft.
Produced and used spaceflight dynamics software for launch and station keeping of several THALES/ALCATEL Spacebus3000 telecommunication satellites.
Involved in in-orbit positioning and critical station keeping operations.
Trained station keeping teams (Shinawatra, Swedish Space Corp, Arabsat).
Oversaw financial margins and staff effectiveness as technical and team manager of a 17-member spaceflight dynamics group
As this is a subcontractor position, it requires negotiation skills.
September 1993 – April 1995: COMMUNICATION and SYSTEM software Engineer.
Developed a simulator and prepared ARIANE 5 attitude control mission analyses.
Developed ARIANE 5 flight control system simulators as part of a subcontract with CNES and EADS (former Aerospatiale)
That job requires good understanding of launcher subsystems, including propulsion, guidance and aerodynamic subsystems.
August 1992 – August 1993:
National military duty in the French military intelligence units.
Assessed lateral manoeuvrability of ground-to-air missiles.
MS, Engineering, June 1991
ENSMA(Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et d’Aérotechnique),French national school specialised in mechanical engineering and aerospace. Best Student Award of 1991.
MSc, Spaceflight Dynamics, June 1992
ENSAE (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Aéronautique et de l’Espace), the best French national school specialised in space technologies.
French citizen, 43 years old, willing to relocate to the US.
Able to get reference letters from my customers (EUTELSAT / TELESAT) and my counterparts (ILS).
