January – Dec. 2010 Satellite Operator / Trajectory position (TRA) / Expert on the reference frame computation, attitude and rendezvous phase for ATV2 (Automated Transfer Vehicle 2) “Johannes Kepler” / A European Spatial Agency (ESA) project
Works / Areas of responsibility:
· Satellite Operations | TRA position: part of the team of Flight Dynamics (FDS) of the ATV control centre (ATV-CC) the TRA position realizes the precise computation of Ariane5 launch date, the manoeuvre plan, the main events of the mission timeline, the ultimate trajectory prediction, the computation of the reference frame, the attitude simulation, the deorbitation manoeuvres, the impact zone of the debris and the NOTAM computation, between others.
· Operational Qualification: TRA position procedures, software and data are developed and validated for each ATV mission
· T-OCF tool maintenance: a flight mechanics software in charge of the orbital control frame (OCF) and the attitude computation
· Mission Analysis: concerning the validity of all the OCF along the mission
· Interfaces: Airbus DS (Astrium at the time), GMV, ATOS, CS Satellite
Since January 2011 Satellite Operator / Trajectory position (TRA) / Expert on the orbital manoeuvres computation for the ATV program
In the Toulouse Spatial Centre directorate, in the on-board/ on-ground sub-directorate, for the department of orbital manoeuvres (DCT/SB/MO). 3 missions: ATV-3, ATV-4 and ATV-5 (on-going)
Works / Areas of responsibility:
· TRA position coordinator: technical coordination of a 4 engineers team, 3 trajectory operators (TRA) plus 1 additional technical assistant for up-coming demands on mission analysis and other activities
· Satellite Operations | TRA position (see previous description)
· Operational Qualification: (see previous description)
· Software Development | TRA position :
T-ORM (manoeuvres optimiser), TEXT (trajectory extrapolation),
T-OCF (orbital control frame and the attitude laws computation), T-RDV (computation of the rendezvous manoeuvres with the International Space Station, ISS), TDEM (re-entry manoeuvres optimiser)
· Mission Analysis: Specific Mission Analysis and Generic Mission Analysis for Phasing, Post-Escape, Parking or Contingency cases
· Interfaces: Airbus DS (ATV Users Manuals, satellite integrator), CS, ATOS (engineering support to TRA position), GMV (FDS software developer)
