    Senior engineer in the Aerospace and Defence section of Critical Software SA.

    Main activities and responsibilities

     

    Main activities were software design, development, and quality assurance. Most of the work performed was as a developer for the European Space Agency and in Research and Development (R&D) projects, either in-house or for external entities such as the UK Ministry of Defence (UK-MOD). The following list highlights some of these participations:

    •      For the Open Concurrent Design Server project; participated in the development of a rich client application for concurrent design of ESA's missions managed by its Concurrent Design Facility (CDF) at ESTEC; [Java, Eclipse RCP, EMF, GMF]

    •      Started and lead a research and development activity focused on establishing a reuse process and development guidelines for monitoring & control applications built on a plug-in repository relaying on the Equinox implementation of the OSGi standard provided by the Eclipse RCP. The established guidelines and process allowed for contributions to be deployed by many projects that in time allowed rich client applications to be built from bundling plug-ins from this repository; [Java, Eclipse RCP, OSGi, Equinox, UML, requirements specification, software design];

    •      Developer and technical manager for Critical Software PREMFIRE project, a multi-functional command & control decision support system for the prevention and mitigation of forest fire hazards. [Java, Eclipse RCP, Java RMI];

    •      Worked as technical manager and developer on an internal R&D project that aimed to evolve the existing PREMFIRE product to a client/server platform for the development of a more generic emergency management applications composed of a Java rich client application integrating Geotools and the NASA Worldwind in an Eclipse RCP application and a server built on the Spring framework and Hibernate, and later was re-factored into a J2EE application; [Java, Eclipse RCP, Geotools, Spring, Hibernate, J2EE]

    Since 2007 and especially in the projects for which I was doing technical management I was responsible for the coordination of several internships.

    Participated in several other projects as a consultant mainly for Java and Eclipse RCP technologies.

    Quality assurance assumed a relevant role at Critical software, at this time a CMMI level 5 certificated company, and therefore during my work at critical practices such as: code and documentation version control, code and documentation reviewing, or configuration management were firmly established as a mind-set.
