    Additional information

    Receptiveness to job transfers in Italy or Foreign Nations (European Community)

    I authorize the use of my personal data/records according to Italian law 196/2003.

    I am an Aerospace Engineer that has worked mainly in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and in applications connected to the use of GNSS: Navigation, Precise Positioning, Tracking, Geodesy and Survey. I have also worked in applications of the GPS in Orbit Determination of  satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). I have also had a job experience as civil engineer, working for a private engineering studio in the Buildings sector.

    The activities in which I consider to be more specialized regard the satellite navigation (GNSS),flight dynamics, and orbit determination and propagation. I have worked mainly in satellite navigation applications for orbit determination (kinematics and reduced-dynamics) of Low Earth Orbit satellites and for trajectory reconstruction and kinematic tracking (estimation of the status of a receiver embarked on the mobile platform through processing of GPS measurements, sequential filtering through the least squares estimators and Kalman filters), in applications of GNSS in Kinematic Airborne Gravimetry (KAG) but also in static applications of GNSS like precise point positioning applications in Geodesy and Geodynamics, and relative positioning in Network baselines determination, especially in application of VRS-RTK[1]strategies. I have a good knowledge in the use and manipulation of sequential estimators such as Kalman filters. I mainly used MATLAB (or Scilab) as a working tool, with some experience in C. In the past i have had also a job experience as civil engineer, working inside a private technical study mainly employed in architectural design of buildings and structural computation.

    I would like to become always more proficient in the field of navigation, tracking and guidance and flight dynamics, but I would also like to build some experience in fields such as aerodynamics, propulsion, AOCS and aerospace structural design, all fields that are part of my academic formation.
