    Ground Segment System Engineer – 2 positions

    You will be based initially for 2 years at our client’s headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Extension of a further 2 years may be possible. In this large European Agency you will find an excellent and modern working environment with challenging tasks and responsibilities.

    Your Tasks:

    The tasks of the key person are related to different phases in the life cycle of our Client systems. They will mainly correspond to various stages of the Detailed Design –Phase C- of a given programme under definition and development, and Phase D (Implementation and Validation), as support to Integration, Verification and Validation.

    The ground segments of Client programmes consist of TTC and Payload Data acquisition ground stations, mission management and control systems, data and product processing, monitoring, archiving, data dissemination plus the associated network fabric elements supporting data distribution and circulation, plus underlying sites and infrastructure.

    The key person will perform typical system engineering activities in the lifecycle of a system, such as:

    Design – defining the conceptual build and configuration which results in a physical architecture, described by its complete functional, physical and software characteristics;

    Technical analyses - which are performed for the purpose of resolving requirements conflicts, assessing system effectiveness and justification of the proposed conceptual and physical designs with consideration to the suitability of COTS and reuse of operational components developed in the context of Client ground segments;

    Technical trade-offs - for assessing dependability, effectiveness, risks, efforts and planning;

    Planning and preparation for integration and verification, with the final objective to demonstrate that the deliverables conform to the specified requirements.

    Specifically for ground segment phase C and D, the key person shall provide consultancy in the following areas:

    Refinement, management and maintenance of the GS system requirements, ensuring correct flow-down and implementation during the element level developments;

    Ground Segment detailed design addressing the overall design of the ground segment system and its physical elements, including the GS deployment views, and generation of the associated architectural design documentation;

    Completion of the detailed design of GS components, including analyses (architectural trade-offs, system technical budgets, risk analyses) to ensure completeness and coherence of the design for all aspects related to system engineering;

    Definition and refinement of GS external interfaces, and internal interfaces between the different GS elements, and their documentation in ICDs;

    Refinement and maintenance of the ground segment model;

    Preparation of the documentation for the GS Critical Design Review (CDR) and the review itself, as part of the ground segment project team, i.e., providing answers to and supporting the resolution of issues raised.

    Development processes of the elements of the GS, both Client developments and externally procured elements, ensuring that those developments are fully compatible with the overall ground segment systems;

    Studies (internal or external) and the evaluation of their results, and related engineering proposals for the ground segment detailed design;

    Analyses of element-level deliverables for conformance to existing requirements and specified test procedures, which involves following up all element level development and testing activities and status;

    Installation of ground segment elements at sites, and their integration into the overall Ground Segment system;

    Verification and validation (IV&V) of the Ground Segment;

    Preparation of, and participation in, project reviews and other check points at system, ground segment system and element level;

    Preparation and maintenance of schedule, resource allocations and work breakdown structures for the GS system engineering activities.

    In the performance of these tasks, the key person shall comply with the applicable rules of the Client’s Directory of Instructions (DI) and Management System which include the Quality Assurance and Configuration Management processes, the applicable organisational and divisional management standards, and also with the relevant working practices and procedures as well as the organisational and divisional documentation management procedures. The set of applicable rules and working practice to be applied during the execution of the work will be made available at start of the duties

     

    Your Profile:

    MANDATORY SKILLS:

    The key person shall have a university degree (or equivalent) in the domain of engineering or science, together with at least 5 years of demonstrated experience in the following areas and disciplines:

    Experience in system engineering practices and processes, especially in the field of space systems engineering, including knowledge of ECSS standards and system life cycle processes;

    Experience in model-based system engineering, including the use of modelling and design tools in support of design activities;

    Experience in performing technical budgets, trade-offs and analyses;

    Extensive experience in the specification, design, implementation, integration, and verification of large and complex Earth Observation ground segments;

    Experience in the preparation of ground segment documentation relating to requirements engineering, design, and interfaces engineering

    DESIRABLE (BUT NOT MANDATORY) ADDITIONAL SKILLS:

    The following experience/knowledge would represent additional assets:

    Knowledge of the following systems and related technologies:

    Near Real-Time Data Processing chains,

    Satellite Mission Control and operations systems,

    Ground Stations,

    Data archive & retrieval, and dissemination systems.

     

    Experience of CORE Model-Based Systems Engineering Software;

    Experience in management and traceability of complex requirements structures;

    Experience with DOORS tool;

    Experience in ground segment IV&V planning and execution.

    The key person shall be able to fulfil the assigned tasks without supervision, have a systematic approach to work, be able to plan his/her work and to cope with tight schedules and multiple tasks. He/she shall have the capability to write accurate and consistent technical documentation. Good communication skills (verbal and written) are important. He/she shall be willing to provide consultancy to a team of engineers and in cooperation with industry and partner agencies.

    Fluency in English is required.

    The variety of the tasks and the scope of the systems to be supported require a high degree of autonomy and good analytical skills.
