    Your Tasks Include:

    The Key person shall work in the Operations and Services to Users Department as a member of the Metop Spacecraft Operations Team, where depending on the level of experience, skills and overall team needs, responsibility will be taken for the operations of in-orbit subsystems and/or instruments, as well as for the operations preparation and operational conduct of in-orbit verification for those subsystems and instruments on the Metop-C satellite. Furthermore, this may also include support to the on-board software management, simulator configuration, automation of routine analysis or other activities included within the scope of activities of the Metop Spacecraft Operations Team. The key person shall establish effective working interfaces with the satellite operations activities of other operations engineers and analysts, and external teams responsible for mission control, mission planning, flight dynamics and ground stations. Furthermore, the key person shall support system and operations preparation activities for Metop Second Generation satellites and possibly also for Jason-CS / Sentinel-6.

    The key person shall be required to support operations during normal working hours, as well as support the on-call operations engineer rota, such that safe and efficient operations are ensured by the Spacecraft Operations Team on a 24/7 basis.

    The tasks of the Key person will typically include:

    Support to the routine operations of Metop A, - B:

    Provision of operational expertise to platform subsystems and/or payload instruments and/or on-board software management, satellite simulator and ground segment operations interfaces;

    Maintain the corresponding operations documentation and flight procedures, including the update and operational validation of procedures releases in a configuration controlled environment;

    Perform trending and performance analysis on the corresponding subsystems and instruments, including definition of additional automated analysis and checks where necessary;

    Investigations into satellite anomalies. This may require a close co-operation with the Operations Support Entity (in ESA and Industry);

    Support the coordination of partner agency interactions for relevant subsystems/instruments;

    Participation in the satellite on-call support rota;

    Identification and support to implementation of system and process improvements concerning the Metop Spacecraft Operations Team responsibilities and interfaces.

    Support the definition and eventual execution of Metop-A in-orbit technology testing and end-of-life operations.

    Support to the operations preparation and early operations of Metop-C:

    Update, verify and validate the subsystem or instrument procedures and associated operational documentation for Metop-C, including support to Satellite System Validation Tests and other Ground Segment Validation Testing.

    Participate in Metop-C Satellite In-Orbit Verification Testing.

    Support to the system and operations preparation of Metop Second Generation satellites:

    Provide inputs and / or review the definition of system and satellite operational concepts;

    Review space to ground interface specifications and flight operations manuals

    Support the definition of tools and processes required to prepare for and operate the satellites.

    Support to the system and operations preparation of other LEO satellites

    Provide operations preparation support as required to the Jason-CS / Sentinel-6 development.

     

     

    Your Profile:

    In addition to having a University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, the Key person shall have a demonstrated experience in at least two of the following mandatory skills:

    Spacecraft monitor and control operations;

    Spacecraft operations preparation engineering;

    Low Earth Orbit spacecraft design or Assembly Integration and Test activities at system or subsystem level.

    Furthermore, it would be a distinct advantage for the Key person to have the following experience and skills:

    In-orbit operations of Low Earth Orbit Earth Observation satellites;

    Experience in the operation or development of satellite ground segment facilities, in particular procedure development, monitor and control, mission planning, on-board software management, performance analysis, configuration management and simulator facilities;

    The procedure development tool MOIS and the procedure execution language STOL;

    The mission control systems EPOCH or SCOS;

    Specification of system and operational concepts, facility requirements;

    Familiarity with On-Board Control Procedure and On-Board Position Scheduler concepts;

    Familiarity with the ECSS Packet Utilization Standard, customization and usage;

    Familiarity with system change control and configuration management procedures;

    Any programming skills – in particular Python is used to support automated routine telemetry analysis.

    The candidate should be self-motivated and able to work in an organized and efficient manner with minimum supervision. Strong data analysis, processing and synthesis skills are essential and an ability to recognize opportunities for improvements in areas of work and implement appropriate solutions is highly desirable.

    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 and have a knowledge of the other. Good communication skills would be also an advantage.
