    -          New algorithms design, implementation and validation.

    -     Design, development and validation of NIR-External Calibration module inside the SMOS Level 1 processor responsible for computing NIR parameters calibration: This module calibrates Noise Injection Radiometer (NIR) antennas, responsible for the measurement of the noise injection temperature inside the SMOS calibration module. For this propose SMOS works in different modes looking at cold sky (external). SMOS L1OP NIR-External Calibration module identifies that kind of measurements and computes the specific parameters which are store in a specific SMOS calibration product.

    -     Run and update common tests cases already defined and update end to end test cases.

    -     Design and create new test cases in order to validate new functionalities, taking into account the different processor configurations and algorithm dependencies.

    -     Analyse and control L1 prototype processor different versions and investigate differences between L1OP and L1PP. Report prototype processor bugs to the L1PP team if necessary.

    -     SMOS L1 operational processor cross-validations against SMOS prototype: cross-validation meetings with the SMOS prototype team in order to run and debug operational and prototype parallel to deeply study both behaviours, find PRs and discuss differences found.

    -          Provide new validation procedures in case L1 prototype is not applicable.

    -          Design and implement new functionalities agreed in commissioning phase.

    -     Provide validation reports to ESA during all the different SMOS L1OP validation phases.

    -     SMOS L1OP support to the operations center about the different data and behaviour expected from the different L1OP and L1PP versions. As well as L1OP configurations usage.

    -     SPQC (Systematic quality control on SMOS products): SMOS subsystem which performs quality checks on SMOS products and keep SPQC data base updated with the results. Technologies used: SQL and Java.

    -     MFS (SMOS Monitoring Facility Specific Functions): set of functionalities that generate reports from telemetry, calibration and science products in order to monitor the performance of the SMOS instrumentation, help in the calibration tasks and assess the quality of the products. Technologies used: IDL. 

     

    ¡  SMOSCP34 Project: Development of the L3 SMOS Expert Center Tools to be used by the Expert Center (UPC) in order to study SMOS data.

    -          Data extraction from SMOS L3 products to HDF and ASCII format. 

    -     L3 Analysis Report tool: Tool for SMOS L3 data study consisting in a configurable GUI which permits the statistical analysis of (single and several) L3 data products and its behaviour through time.

    -     GUIs development and design: graphical user interfaces in order to automate SMOS L3 tools previously computed in C++.

    -          Technologies used: Linux, Java, Java SWT, C/C++, Eclipse, Netbeans.
