    Software engineer for Ground Segment

    Isdefe

    I work in the space stations directorate of Isdefe. I work in the communications and ground segment department. I am the software responsible of the department. I work as an independent member of my department and I am the leader of a small group of engineers. I am also the technical responsible, designer and main developer of Siger+, the commercial monitoring and control system that my company deploys in a wide variety of operational satellite ground stations. I provide software support to all hardware teams of the department and I report directly to the chief of the department. I was in charge of the described tasks for the following projects:

    SIMGS – Development of a simulator of ground segment. Internal project.

    - Requirement analysis. Those requirements were defined by the project managers of the hardware teams.
    - Design of the simulator based on the internal requirements. This system simulated all devices involved in a ground station, its dependencies and its complete behaviour. Writing software design documents.
    - Development of the simulator using Java 1.7 with Eclipse.
    - Unit testing of the simulator using JUnit.
    - Verification and validation testing. Writing test procedure and test report.

    SIG+ – Development of a brand new commercial M&C system to be used by the rest of the department as a companion of the ground stations deployed around the globe. Internal project.

    - Design of Siger+. Siger+ is object-oriented and is based on client-server architecture. Writing of the software design document.
    - Implementation of Siger+. The monitoring server is implemented in C++ under Linux and there is a version of the client application implemented with C# and another implemented using Java 1.8 with Eclipse. The system stores information in a very big MySQL database and makes heavy use of XML for configuration purposes.
    - Unit tests performed with JUnit for Java, NUnit for C# and Boost for C++.
    - Testing the brand new system against a station simulator developed internally as well (SIMGS). Writing test procedure and test report.

    AMZ3 – Design, build and install of a brand new operational TT&C ku band station located at Maspalomas Space Station (Spain) for Amazonas-3 GEO satellite property of Hispasat:

    - Writing of the software side of the bid for Hispasat.
    - Software requirements analysis and ICD definition.
    - Design of the Siger+ tailoring to adapt it to the ground station requirements. Writing of the software design document.
    - Implementation of the new software procedures, modules or artefacts required. This includes all operational procedures: DOWNLINK, UPLINK, TRACKING, LOOP and EIRP SET.
    - Unit testing all new artefacts performed with JUnit for Java, NUnit for C# and Boost for C++.
    - Integration testing with the kernel and the new artefacts.
    - Verification testing in laboratory (station simulator SIMGS). Writing of the software FAT test procedure and test report documents.
    - On-Site installation (Maspalomas) and deployment of the software system against the actual station. Support to the hardware team during the hardware installation.
    - Validation of the software. Writing of the software OnSite test procedure and test report.
    - Writing operation and maintenance document of the system.
    - Provided both corrective and evolutive maintenance of the software.

    AMZ4A – (My activities and aim of the project was the same as AMZ3)

    - Study of the current system and the new requirements provided by the operators.
    - Design of the upgrade (Siger+ was not used).
    - Participated in the development of the upgrade. This development was carried out in Java.
    - Participated in the testing and validation process.
    - Participated in the writing of the operation and maintenance manual for the upgraded system.

    PNOT – Design, build and installation of a dual band (S and X) ground station for the future PAZ and INGENIO satellites. This station is located at INTA Madrid (Spain):

    - Tailoring of Siger+ to adapt it to a reduced station in order to perform the RF compatibility tests with PAZ satellite. Writing design software document.
    - Implementation of the specific artefacts required.
    - Preparation of the testing macros to configure the reduced station in order to pass every RF compatibility test.
    - Design custom software to prepare base band devices of the actual station before the pass and then automatically record telemetry data into the CORTEX base band during the pass accordingly with the master schedule of the station. It also has to retrieve and process all data once the pass finishes. This tool is built on Eclipse (Java 1.7). Writing software design document.
    - Implementation of this custom software.
    - Unit testing the system with JUnit.
    - Testing and validation on-site.
    - Writing the operation and maintenance manual.
