    CV

    PERSONAL STATEMENT

    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.

     

    KEY SKILLS

    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.

     

    Personal Skills

    -      Good communication and organization skills developed in university and working environments, and also in private life

    -      Good problem solving capabilities and teamwork attitude developed in university environment and consolidated during the working experiences

    -      Can work by own initiative through self-motivation and goal-oriented attitude

    EXPERIENCE

    Ansaldo STS, Naples (Italy),  www.ansaldo-sts.com

    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.
