December 2009 – December 2012:
Project manager for the satellite operator Eutelsat SA in Paris/France. Performance analysis and coverage definition for Ka-Sat: definition of the communication cells and link budget calculations including the C/I inter-spot interference ratio (characteristic interference for Ka-Sat). Creation and handling of “Broadcast” and “multibeam” coverage types. Development of conversion algorithms for different radiation pattern diagram files. Contribution to the Terabit project.
October 2008 – June 2009:
Antenna design project at UCL (University College London) in London/United-Kingdom with Ken Fai Tong as supervisor. Working on a pre-existing antenna model in order to modify and improve the transmission performances in the domain of a circular polarized signal. Work based on simulations and analyzing results with the software IE3D. The results of this project lead to a PhD subject.
June 2007 – July 2008 :
One-year internship at Eutelsat SA in Paris/France. Working in the department FSS (Future Satellite Systems) on:
· Development of a simulation tool with Matlab, for detailed satellite link budgets taking into account atmospheric attenuations defined by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
· Development of a simulation chain with Simulink in order to estimate the effects of non-linearity and losses for a Multi-Port Amplifier (MPA).
