    I worked for OPTSAT-3000 mission, a military optical satellite, for COSMO Second Generation, a dual radar satellite constellation mission and for PRISMA mission an hyperspectral mission in COSMO Second Generation I also had the chance of designing a GS with multi mission and multi sensor purposes.

    Within these projects, I had the opportunity to follow every phase from the early design, the interface detailed project and architecture definition, to the in factory and on site testing activities and put in operation. I was, in fact, directly involved in the following activities:
    - Design of System and Ground Segment Interfaces with the role of  "Interface Design Manager" for both the mentioned projects (SysML engineering design)
    - Requirement analysis: from client’s to system’s requirements
    - Support to architecture continuous design
    - Technical Notes an Design documentation writing both in the Classified and Unclassified domain

    - AIV/IVV Engineer: testing strategy definition, test procedure writing and test execution for the End-to-End Ground segment verification and put into operation

    Moreover, for COSMO SkyMed Second Generation system, I have the role of subsystem responsible for the X-Band Acquisition subsystem for which I:
    - manage the subcontractor
    - verify the subsystem’s documentation
    - follow the subsystem’s reviews, testing and integration activities

    Internship at: Thales Alenia Space Italia SpA
    Thesis advisor: prof. Riccardo Marino
    Thesis abstract: an accurate study on estimation of attitude of rigid and nonrigid bodies was carried out. This was aimed to the industrial application in the aerospace field; in particular the method used by the non linear extensions of the Kalman Filter, EKF and UKF, was studied and applied to the model of a spacecraft with the objective of comparing the estimation performances.

    Final grade: 110 out of 110 summa cum laude
