The candidate will be part of an exciting team and will be responsible for mission analysis activities during the project phases of NanoSat and during the operational phases of the mission.
The activities will typically include:
- Trajectory analysis and orbit optimization prior to the mission launch, during the development stage of the projects and during the satellites’ in-orbit operations, in support of the flight dynamics team.
- Trajectory analysis, orbit optimization and corrective maneuvers assessment during the in-orbit phase of the projects.
- Development and application of different (basic and advanced) techniques for solving a variety of orbital mechanics and astrodynamics problems.
- Development of engineering tools to support the Mission Analysis, including trajectory modelling and trajectory corrections for the real time operations.
- Analysis and optimization of the spacecraft’s propulsion (chemical, low thrust and/or hybrid) simulations.
- Utilization of numerical methods to analyze flight mechanics problems including numerical integration, root-solving problems, and coordinate transformations.
- Support to the development of contingency operations of the satellite, including preparation avoidance maneuvers, recovery of routine operations, safe mode support.
- Performing Monte Carlo analysis to determine flight performance under various operating conditions.
- Reporting of all the activities performed.
- Review of satellite, space and ground-segment technical documentation and participation in formal reviews.
- University Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering or Astrodynamics.
- At least 3-5 years of working experience.
- Fluency in Italian and English is mandatory.
- Analytical approach and attention to the details.
- Good communication skills.
- Ability to cooperate in a team.
- Effective approach in reporting of information and outcomes.
REQUIRED EXPERIENCES & SKILLS
