    I am a young and motivated Telecommunication Engineer looking for a role in the world of telecommunications where I can develop my skills further, researching new technologies and embracing new challenges. My will is to deal with innovative problems, especially relatively to these areas of interest: Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Defence, Aerospace, Space, Radar Systems.



    Technical Skills

    -      GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) positioning algorithms and system performance evaluation in terms of integrity, continuity, accuracy and availability (acquired during the experience at Ansaldo STS);

    -      Verification and Validation (acquired during the experience at Ansaldo STS);

    -      Understanding of System engineering principles (learnt during the experience at Ansaldo STS);

    -      Understanding of ERTMS/ETCS principles (learnt during the experience at Ansaldo STS);

    -      Signal processing, Remote Sensing, Radiolocation Techniques, Radar Systems, Analog and Digital Transmissions, Telecommunication Systems, Wireless and wired communications, Antennas design; these skills have been acquired during University studies;

    -      Operating systems: Windows, Mac Os, GNU/Linux, Android;

    -      Programming languages: C++, C#, JAVA, MATLAB, IDL, Python;

    -      Application software: Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point, Access, Outlook), PSpice, Eclipse, Visual Studio, Matlab and Simulink.

    Ansaldo STS, Naples (Italy),

    International transportation leader with global presence in the field of signaling and integrated transport  systems.

    Fellowship, February 2014 to Present

    Position: GNSS V&V RAMS Engineer for Satellite Assisted Railway Applications

    Main activities:

    -      Verification and Validation of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) positioning algorithms developed for railway applications. The model that describes the positioning system has been developed in Matlab-Simulink environment. The V&V activity required an in-depth understanding of GNSS, acquired by means of documents such as IS-GPS-200 and applicable RTCA standards, as well as scientific literature relative to positioning algorithms. The system developed by Ansaldo STS takes advantage of a ground based augmentation network whose aim is to improve the accuracy of the user estimated position. The activity includes also the validation of the algorithms related to system integrity.

    -      Development of a testing tool in Matlab/Simulink environment, that allows the user to inject errors into the modeled system, in order to evaluate the performance of the positioning algorithms.

    -      Redaction of two documents:

    -   the “Test Specification” document that contains the list of the tests to be executed with the developed testing tool, and derived starting from the error sources suggested by RTCA standards;

    -   the “Test Report” document that contains the results of the tests and the conclusions about the system performance;

    -      Collaboration to the writing of the GNSS algorithms document and to many other projects documents (such as Interface Control Document, System Requirements Specification, etc.) providing substantial feedbacks;

    -      Verification and Validation of a search algorithm within a database that contains information of the specific railway line topology: this algorithm helps the train positioning algorithm, since the user estimated position must be a point of the railway line and not a generic point of the space. this activity required the development of a testing tool in Matlab language;

    -      Performance evaluation of the GNSS algorithms implemented into the real devices (rover and ground stations), by comparing their results (e.g. PVT) with those of the model implemented in Matlab-Simulink environment;

    -      Study of GNSS observables, positioning algorithms, augmentation networks and integrity monitoring; experience with GNSS receivers (e.g. u-blox and NVS) and with data interchange formats (e.g. RINEX, BINEX, etc.) for raw satellite navigation system data.
