Year of birth:1977
Position: Project Engineer
Since 10/2008: GMV AEROSPACE AND DEFENCE S.A. At Thales Alenia Spacio
Performance engineer at the Galileo GMS Performance Team:
Develop and maintenance of the EPATp tool for system performance monitoring and control
Support and development of tools for the ionosphere and ULS contact plan performance analysis.
Participation in the AIV activities and FOC early activities.
01/06-01/10 Flight dynamics engineer
Unitary tests and development environment for several parts of the NAPEOS based Galileo Flight dynamics
09/04-08/06 Manoeuvre optimization Officer in the OPS-GFI Department at ESA/ESOC
SMART-1: Manoeuvre optimization from the Lagrange point crossing to the end of the mission, including the mission extension and the controlled accurate impact on the Moon’ surface at 05:42 UT 3 September 2006. The propulsion was primary an electric propulsion Xenon based engine but the attitude thrusters were also used for orbit correction in the later phases.
Mars Express and Venus Express: Support for the routine operations, keeping the satellite in a Mars bound orbit as close as a reference orbit as possible with the delta velocity component of the WoL and control manoeuvres to control the orbit resonance
Herschel/Plank: Operations studies and launch window estimation for the injection in separated Lissajous orbits around the Lagrange point L2. The work includes preparing thrusters models for both spacecrafts
Bepi-Colombo: Preliminary orbit studies for the complex trajectory including several swing-bys to Moon, Earth, Venus and Mercury and a gravity capture in Mercury (using the weak stability boundary model). The spacecraft includes 4 different modules (MTM, MPO, Sun shield and MMO) and a mixed propulsion chemical and electric.
ORATOS-NG: Effort to re-engineer the common software layer for the missions controlled from ESOC -current ORATOS-. The objective is to apply actual software development techniques to rationalize and upgrade the ORATOS facilities.
05/02-08/04 Project Engineer in the Flight Engineering Division
ATV. Complete implication in the ATV project. Develop of the T-ORM module to calculate the manoeuvres needed to approximate the ATV vehicle to the ISS. This includes the detailed design and implementation in Fortran 95 (using object-oriented techniques), test suit (unitary, integration and system tests) and delivery.
Focus: Analysis of coordinate transformation accuracy and correction of anomalies
03/02-05/02: Developer Engineer of the I+D+I Department
IDA: Gyroscope based actuator for spacecraft vehicles. Studies of feasibility, dynamical behaviour and possible applications around a 2-gyroscopes device synchronously nutated to obtain a reaction torque.
10/00-03/01: Grant holder in the Low Speed Wind Tunnel Department
X-Soaring: Program to calculate glider’s actuation. Complete reverse engineering over an existing FORTRAN 77 program, analysis and update of the algorithms used, new object oriented design and code in FORTRAN 95.
Since 2007: Computer Sciences Student from the National Distance University
1995-2000: Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
Speciality in Space Vehicles
Thesis: Fast interplanetary orbit calculation and visualization in the solar system.
