    Knowledge and experience of the following is mandatory:

    Specification, development, and testing of product processors for earth observation platforms, with knowledge of the following domain-specific aspects being highly desirable:

    Level 2 Ground processing algorithms for imager instruments, e.g. SEVIRI covering atmospheric motion vectors, cloud masks, cloud products including volcanic ash, clear sky reflectances and radiances, global instability and total ozone and radiative transfer model

    Level 1 UVN Ground processing algorithms for hyperspectral sounding instruments, covering geolocation, radiometric and spectral calibration at level 1 as well as methodologies and techniques for atmospheric retrievals at Level 2.

    Operational software for high-throughput, low-latency processing of satellite data, preferably for imager and hyperspectral sounding instruments;

     

    System and software engineering for operational earth observation ground processing;

    Formal software testing, verification and validation of product processors (L1 or L2) for satellite data (with a particular focus on Imager and hyperspectral sounding instruments) or other meteorological data;

    Development and testing of software in UNIX environments.

    Practical knowledge and demonstrated ability covering as many as possible of the following will be an advantage:

    Demonstrated experience of working in a high/pressure working environment in procuring a L2 imager processor in both industry and space agency procurement

    Demonstrated knowledge of FCI Level 2 algorithms

    Hands on experience of interfacing and translating scientific imager and hyperspectral sounding instruments information into procurement specifications.

    Knowledge of Level 2 UVN ground processing algorithms for hyperspectral sounding instruments, covering computation efficiency and in particular ozone tropospheric retrieval.

    Processes, phases and documentation related to procurement of operational data processing systems in the field of Earth Observations including ECSS standards;

    The ability to perform under high workloads;

    Very good communication, presentation and listening skills—including the ability to rapidly absorb, and make use of, information presented in written and oral communications in a dynamic context.
