|EDUCATION AND TRAINING|
|2013 – 2015||Master Course in Space and Astronautical Engineering [MCSAE]|
|Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy|
-The courses were focused in Mission and Spacecraft Analysis and Design.
-The thesis I wrote, titled "The use of VSAT in LEO to GEO radio links for real-time communications", is based on the idea of using telecommunication GEO satellites as real-time data relays for LEO satellites. After developing my own tools for analysing the problems related to the use of Inter-Satellite Links, through Excel, Matlab and STK, presenting a real case scenario applied to the EPS, I demonstrated the validity of my idea to Intelsat and ESA-ESRIN
