    WORK EXPERIENCE:

    2006 - PRESENT

    GMV Aerospace and Defence , Tres Cantos, Madrid - Spain.

    Space Systems business unit (GNC section)

    Project engineer:

    RF PRISMA: Algorithm definition, design, implementation and validation of the NPU (Navigation Processing Unit) of Formation Flying Radio Frequency (FFRF) subsystem. The FFRF subsystem is the first intended relative metrology for all the high altitude formation flying missions; GMV is in charge of the NPU module (on-board SW) and of the detailed FFRF simulator. The Swedish technology demonstration mission PRISMA is flying the FFRF subsystem. Main responsibilities: navigation algorithms design, implementation and testing, generation of on-board C-code with auto-coding tools from Matlab/Simulink.

    Technical manager for:

    •          support to system integration and on-ground and flight test campaign.

    •          Maintenance phase and contact with the client.

    HARvD (ESA project): High Autonomous Multi-Range Rendez-vous Control System for Mars Sample Return and On-orbit Servicing missions.

    Responsible for:

    •          navigation algorithms development, implementation and testing.

    •          Processor in the loop (PIL) test campaign using dSPACE system (HW and SW) and FPGA target boards.

    •          HW in the loop test campaign adding to the PIL environment LIDAR and optical sensors and providing relative dynamics through the use of robotic arms (platform test bench).

    CCWPS (cooperative cars wireless positioning system): Design, implementation and testing of an RF-based navigation system (both HW and SW) for relative positioning between cars based on COTS (GPS receivers) and non-COTS (GPS signal emitters) HW devices.

    GNCDE 3 (ESA project): GNC Development Environment for several Mission scenarios. Responsibility: Covariance Analysis Tool.

    PROVISCOUT: Planetary Robotics Vision Scout (European Commission collaborative project).It aims to demonstrate the combination of vision-based autonomous sample identification & sample selection with terrain hazard analysis for a long range scouting/exploration mission on a terrestrial planet. Responsible for long-range navigation based on sensors fusion through Kalman filtering.

    Support to other projects and to technical proposals realization.

     

    2009 - PRESENT

    Technical responsible:

    CARF: R&D project funded by the Comunidad de Madrid based on a spin-off of space technology for relative navigation applied to positioning between terrestrial vehicles. Design, implementation and testing of a prototype RF-based navigation system.

    PLGTF (ESA project): Precision Landing GNC Test Facility that emulates a lander descent dynamics in Moon and Mars environment through the use of an unmanned helicopter. Responsibility: precise trajectory and attitude determination based on measurements fusion (Kalman filtering) of differential GPS and IMU. Navigation system design and implementation at HW and SW level, on-field test campaign.

    PLATFORM: development of a dynamic test bench for validation of GNC systems for Rendezvous and docking. It is based on robotic arms which emulates the relative motion of the spacecraft and implemented on real time OS. Responsible for: control center based on dSpace HW board, control of the robotic arms, calibration of the test bench, sensors sampling and management.
