    Your Tasks Include:

    As members of the FLO Mission Control Systems team, the Key Persons shall provide support to the development and operation of the EPS Overall Ground Segment (‘OGS’).

    Main duties are the operation of the EPS Monitoring and Control System (‘MCS’), the operational use of Mission Control Facility (‘MCF’) Tools, and mission control-related multi-mission tools.

    The roles of the Key Persons comprise a range of tasks including the provision of support to the routine operation of the EPS MCS, and the interfaces between the MCS and other components of the EPS Core Ground Segment (‘CGS’). In addition, the Key Person will acquire and maintain a System-wide view of the EPS CGS and OGS, particularly in the areas of system monitoring & control and data flows, due to the central role the MCS plays in the EPS System.

    The Key Persons shall also provide support to the system development and operations preparation activities for future EUMETSAT programs, providing operations experience to system and operations concept implementation.

    The Key Persons will, between them, perform the following tasks:

    Support to routine operations:

    • Definition and maintenance of mission-control operations procedures, including System and ground segment procedures and operations guides;
    • Liaison with the spacecraft operations team to ensure the continuity and optimization of spacecraft monitoring and control activities;
    • Liaison with the operations analysts to ensure continuity and optimization of database related activities;
    • Interface with other facilities within the operational ground segments to ensure the continuity and optimization of ground segment and mission monitoring and control activities;
    • Interface with external elements of the operational ground segments to ensure the continuity and optimization of data exchanges with the mission control systems;
    • Interface with the mission control systems maintenance team and industry representatives to ensure optimized performance, including participating in the definition and implementation of any changes;
    • Provision of support to operational ground segment analyses;
    • Provision of stand-by/on-call support as part of a team of MCS engineers;
    • Provision of support, as required, to critical operations;
    • Processing of system anomalies, their documentation, investigation, classification and resolution/mitigation, including participation in Anomaly Review Boards;
    • Participation in further technical meetings, formal reviews, and scheduling and planning meetings.

    Support to modifications to the operational systems

    • Interface with project teams on the implementation of system upgrades to support major operations projects, including System Mid-Term Evolution Plan, recurrent satellites, and any System hardware and operating system obsolescence upgrade.
    • Processing of system modifications, including their documentation, approval, and implementation, including participation in Change Review Boards;
    • Support to, and participation in, the functional verification and operational validation of mission control systems and related elements, both standalone and in the context of an overall ground segment.

    Support to the preparations for recurrent satellites and future satellite programs

    • Provision of support to the development, system and ground segment verification and validation, and operations preparation for recurrent satellites in existing operational programmes, in particular Metop-C;
    • Provision of support to the development, system and ground segment verification and validation, and operations preparation for future operational programmes such as Sentinel-3, Sentinel-6, MTG and EPS-SG.

    Support to operations teams

    • Provision of training, through written materials, practical demonstrations and presentations, to other members of the Operations Team.

    The tasks assigned to each Key Person will be agreed through dedicated individual work packages with clear identification of activities and outputs expected.

    In the performance of these tasks, the Key Persons shall apply the Client’s configuration and change control procedures as well as the relevant system engineering standards, quality management procedures and maintenance procedures.

     

    Your Profile:

    In addition to having a university degree (or equivalent) in a relevant technical discipline, the Key Persons shall have the following mandatory attributes:

    • At least five years experience in the operations preparation and routine operations of spacecraft mission control systems for Geostationary (‘GEO’) and/or Low Earth Orbit (‘LEO’) satellite systems;
    • At least three years experience defining and implementing the verification and validation of spacecraft mission control systems;
    • At least three years experience interacting with flight dynamics and mission planning functions and systems as applied to satellite operations;
    • At least three years experience with the application of ECSS and CCSDS standards for space-to-ground interfaces, Satellite Monitoring & Control Systems: Packet Telemetry and Telecommand standards, PUS (Packet Utilization Standard), etc.

    Experience of the following would be an distinct advantage:

    • Extensive experience with EPOCH IPS M&C product suite from ISI/Kratos;
    • Extensive experience in the use of databases and SQL-related querying in relation to spacecraft mission control systems;
    • Experience using a spacecraft mission control system based on SCOS-2000;
    • Experience using configuration management systems such as CVS and / or GIT;
    • Experience using satellite simulators;
    • Linux operating system;
    • Leading a small team of engineers.

    The official languages are English and French, the working language for the position is English and therefore the Key Person must be able to work effectively in this language.
