    R&D Engineer


    Deimos Castilla La Mancha (Aerospace company)


    GEO-Cloud Project (FP7 European Project). Design and implementation of a cloud architecture to observe the Earth by Fed4FIRE platforms. Developed in Python, C++ and Bash script. The distributed system was implemented by using the ZeroC ICE middleware. Cloud architecture realized raw data input of satellites,processed and distributed result images among users. Simulations of satellites and ground-based systems were done by using Python. Cloud platform has been BonFIRE and the space simulator was implemented by  using Virtual Wall. More information:


    Multi Mission Ground Segment Control System (MM-GSCS). Design and develop the Multi Mission Ground Station Control System (MMGSCS) for the Deimos-2 satellite GSCS. The GSCS is the element in charge of configuring the ground station equipment and monitoring its operation during satellite passes. MMGSCS project will serve pass request of any satellite that it wants to use the Ground Station located in Puertollano.


    EntICE. Virtualisation is a key technology in Cloud computing that allows users to run multiple virtual machines (VM) with their own application environment on top of physical hardware. Virtualisation enables scaling up and down of applications by elastic on-demand provisioning of VMs in response to their variable load to achieve increased utilisation e
    fficiency at a lower operational cost, while guaranteeing the desired level of Quality of Service (QoS, such as response time) to the end-users. Typically, VMs are created using provider specific templates (so-called VM images) that are stored in proprietary repositories, leading to provider lock-in and hampering portability or simultaneous usage of multiple federated Clouds. - See more at:
