    EGSE and DataBase Support Engineer - JUICE - Friedrichshafen (with option Toulouse), Ref: 19-18769



    The high-tech and innovative Terma Group develops products and systems for defence, non-defence and security applications, including command and control systems, radar systems, self-protection systems for aircraft and vessels, space technology, and aero-structures for the aircraft industry.

    Terma is headquartered at Aarhus, Denmark. Internationally, Terma has subsidiaries and operations in The Netherlands, France, Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, India, Singapore and the U.S.

    The Space Business Area contributes with mission-customized software and hardware products including power systems and star trackers as well as services to support a number of in-orbit pioneering European scientific and Earth observation satellite missions. Additionally, Terma is contracted for the development and delivery of software and hardware systems and services for numerous ongoing and future European, and international missions.

    Terma Space operates out of Denmark, The Netherlands, France, Germany, the UK and France.


    Job description

    For our customer, Airbus Defence and Space, we are seeking an experienced EGSE (Electrical Ground Support Equipment) and DataBase Engineer support to strengthen and support our AIT team on ESA’s JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer) project.

    The position is focussed on the EGSE integration of the Flight Model (FM) in Friedrichshafen, Germany, followed for 2 months for environmental tests (Netherlands-Germany). You will have the option to continue afterwards with the mission on both spacecraft (S/C), the Engineering (EM) and Flight (FM) model, in Toulouse (the option to end the mission in Kourou for launch is under discussion). You will have the opportunity to follow nearly the entire AIT period of the JUICE S/C until launch.



    You will be assigned to the JUICE AIT Department at Airbus Defence and Space.

    You will provide on demand expertise in activities related to EGSE systems:

    • Understanding of EGSE interfaces, user manual and functions.

    • EGSE setup and operation, locally, through Terma’s CCS or ATP commands.

    • Contribution to the follow-up of JUICE tools on the EM (Talent issues, KWL update, FVI review and OPS team). Focal point for reporting on FVI meeting.

    • CCS installation upgrades and configuration control.

    • Creation and / or adaptation of synoptic pictures.

    • FOPs deliveries management. It means installation of FOPs and coordination with OPS team.

    • Participation, under Airbus team lead, to the preparation and operations of validation activities, run for the first time at EGSE delivery, then repeated after upgrading the EGSE. Validation consists in more detailed health checks than installation, locally and/or under CCS control, and in dedicated tests to check the critical interfaces of the EGSE. Then the EGSE can be connected to the S/C interfaces. In some cases, the validation phase is continuing after S/C coupling, in order to check the behavior and the performances of the EGSE in real conditions.

    • Work according to JUICE test plans, test specifications, coding rules, safety and operations documents.

    • Follow EGSE design documents, ICDs (Interface Control Document, Electrical, mechanical, TMTC) and user manuals.

    • Configuration management: the purpose of this activity is to have a permanent knowledge of the EGSE configuration, in terms of HW, SW and database, and in terms of EGSE status (installed, validated), and to record any change in the evolution of this configuration. It is also requested to permanently check that EGSE configuration (status, parameters, modes, connections, HW, SW versions) is compatible with the S/C configuration and in line with the objective of the S/C tests.

    • Support maintenance activities: mainly preventive maintenance when applicable running EGSE procedures,

    • Support upgrade activities (HW or SW), using the EGSE procedures. SW upgrades are also foreseen for the SIMAIT simulator, phased with the CSW versioning.

    • Support for database:

    - maintaining permanently the AIT database up-to-date (parameters of scoe, specific monitoring, telecommands, communication protocol between CCS and scoe …),

    - Import of the SRDB on the CCS5 of Terma, consistent with the CSW version under test, with local modifications when needed.

    - Support configuration control aspects: Recording any change in the evolution of this configuration and providing a continuous configuration control of the database, to ensure that it is compatible with the S/C configuration

    • The engineer will also support the AIT team in following tasks:

    - Responding to problems / questions from the Juice team regarding database population,

    - Logging, documenting and closing database related problems.

    - Management of the EGSE machines under Ansible tool.

    - Scripts shell and python development. 

    - Network configuration and management.

    - VMware ESXi tools.

    - Configuration of multi users tests platform.
