    You will have the opportunity to support the definition of the System Operations concepts and requirements for the next generation of Galileo, through active interfacing with System and Segments design experts, to ensure that the system functionalities and performances fulfil the mission objectives of the new Galileo generation.
    You will be primarily assigned to the Systems Operations Engineering of the Galileo Second Generation, supporting at the same time other missions within the Galileo programme, e.g. Galileo First Generation.

    Tasks and Activities
    The scope of work will include:
    •    Define and maintain the System Operations project documentation for the next Generation of Galileo, including the System Level Operations Concept, both CLA and UNCLA and the Operations Service Requirement Document. Particular focus is expected on the compatibility analysis between the new generation of Galileo Satellites and the Ground Segment evolutions, the new planning functionalities as well as operations automation and monitoring and control aspects.
    •    Identify the required Operational Improvements to be injected in the new system functional architecture definition, based on a systematic analysis of the lessons learned derived from the Galileo first generation.
    •    Interface the System design experts within the Project to ensure that the system functionalities and performances fulfil the new mission objectives and operability requirements for all the different mission scenarios and system operating modes.
    •    Based on the operations concept evolution and lessons learned analysis, derive operability requirements in support of the System and Segment requirements definition and consolidation.
    •    Support the Galileo Project Office on the interactions with the Galileo GNSS Supervisory Authority Agency  (GSA) for the definition of operational needs coming from service requirements.
    •    Active participation to Galileo Evolution Engineering Boards, System and Segments Working Groups.
