    Summary 
     
    Paola received the Master’s degree in Telecommunication Engineering “cum laude” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”in 2009. She developed two internships at Thales Alenia Space Italy (TASI) during university, and she entered in contact with the team-working environment. She developed some new RF analysis Tools, currently applied in the prediction activity of some space programs(Amos/Sicral). In particular, she studied a model for a radiofrequency mixer, and it was applied for spurious analysis. After the degree (November 2009), she started to work at TRS as consultant in MBDA, where she took part in a military program as software developer. In September 2010 she has been hired temporary by TASI. She was in charge to develop Payload analysis (spurious and auto/inter-compatibility), in the frame of Athena Fidus program. In December 2010 she decided to follow in parallel the PhD in Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Tor Vergata (December 2010). Doctoral studies focus on the Telemetry, Tracking and Command system (TT&C). Her actual research activity investigates mainly on the secure anti-jamming techniques, in particular the channel coding is analyzed and new approaches are proposed. She had the opportunity to take part in TASI to a study founded by ESA on the Cryptographic Pseudo-Noise codes and Synchronization Techniques for Spread Spectrum Transponders. Her competences on the satellite systems became more solid thanks to the experience in TAS France (September 2011-June 2012), which also permitted her to learn French language. She has been working in Toulouse, in order to
    prepare the prediction activity for the constellation in MEO orbit, O3B, which has been designed at TASF, and will be completed in TASI. She is actually responsible of test validation (AIV) at satellite level of the constellation O3B in Rome.

    PhD student. The research activity focuses mainly on the secure anti-jamming techniques, in the frame of Telemetry, Tracking and Command system (TT&C), with the application of a Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum code. In particular, the benefits of channel coding are analysed and new approaches are proposed. The existing standards as PSS (Procedures, Specifications and Standards), or ECSS (European Cooperation for Space  Standardization) have been exploited, and advanced coding schemes (Concatenated, LDPC) are evaluated. Simulation models have been built in order to estimate the improvement in terms of Bit/Frame Error Rate (BER/FER). Particular attention is focused on the Pulsed Jammer which causes Burst errors. A study of the PLL  on Board characteristics has been done, and a Jammer model has been carried out. - University of Rome Tor Vergata (in collaboration with Thales Alenia Space-I) - Rome (Italy)
