    - Lead engineer for SEVIRI (Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infra-Red Imager), backupf engineer for MCP (Mission Communication Payload) and TT&C (Telemetry Tracking and Commanding) subsystem – for two (2) MSG (TAS-F, Thalesaleniaspace France) Earth Observation / imaging spacecraft.
    - Daily monitoring of spacecraft, checking spacecraft logs, out-of-limits & alarm limit checking, automated schedule and procedure generation (from/against flight dynamics predicts, etc) for all routine spacecraft operations, seasonal and long-term trending and report generation.
    - Participating (a week at a time) in On-call Spacecraft Engineer rotation, providing specialist advice to support out-of-hours routine operations and resolve contingencies in response to spacecraft anomalies or reconfigurations/mode changes.
    - Involvement in external technical meetings and support groups with satellite manufacturer, Thales Alenia Space (progress meetings, anomaly meetings, etc) to review operational issues and on-going anomaly work-arounds.
    - Support to imaging and ground segment operations (satellite control system, ground station engineering, image processing / product dissemination, etc), as necessary.
    - Commissioning operations: SVT preparation for the MSG3 S/C launching in June 2012. Support to ESA/ESOC during LEOP phase.
    - Direct interface with the IMPF (Imaging team) for nominal and special operations.

    Flight segment engineer at the ground station of Boecillo (Spain).
    - Author of the FOP (Flight Operation Procedures) for the Deimos-1 SC built by SSTL (Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd). The operational procedures allow the operator to control the SC during nominal conditions as well as emergency.   The whole FOP was realised analysing subsystems and mission drivers together with the interface SW for commanding.
    - Responsible for the Flight Segment, involving all satellite subsystems (AOCS, power, thermal, OBDH, payload). Telemetry monitoring, contingencies analysis and solution, data handling and trend analysis, during commissioning as well as during nominal. 
    - Mission planning. Analyzing the capture capability of the Deimos-1 in accordance to contract requirements. Modifying the Fortran FDS (Fight Dynamics System) program to merge it with another program Savoir (Swath Acquisition Viewer) to be able to test the satellite capability to acquire different areas on Earth respecting the mandatory constrain of weekly Spain scansion.
    - AOCS. Applying Y-Thompson technique to 3-axis stabilize the satellite on its nominal orbit handling sensors and actuators.   
    - Ground segment. Actively operating with the ground segment team during nominal operations to merge knowledge and to be ready to supporting each other in case of emergency.
    - Participation to the FRR (Flight Readiness Review) stating the Deimos-1 SC readiness to fly.
    - Participation to the Deimos-1 launch campaign in Baikonur (Kazakhstan), assisting to the launch site check-out tests of the SC’ subsystems up to the integration of the Deimos-1 inside the SHM (Space Head Module).

    Trainee at the OPS-GSS (Ground Segment Operations and Signal Processing) division.
    - Working on the ΔDOR (Delta-Differential One-way Ranging) technique to determine the angular position of the Rosetta SC during its fly-by to Mars. The same ΔDOR data were used for tests leading to the optimisation of the technique itself. 
    - Scripting. Scripts running on the Correlator machine were modified to optimise the data processing by means of integration intervals. SW maintenance.
    - The tool DOSP (Delta-DOR Optimum Sequence Planner) was written in MatLab to provide the optimum interval for the SC acquisition by the ground station respect to the SC elevation and to the quasar correlated flux.
