The work is related to the definition, specification and development of test tools and the generation of test data which are required to support system and ground segment V&V activities. This may include in-house development activities as well as the procurement of test tools / test data sets from external entities. The focus of the tasks is on test tools / test data needed for V&V of chains for processing of instrument data.
The key-person would be a member of the EPS-SG System Team in the Low Earth Orbit Division (LEO) at EUMETSAT.
The tasks of these positions include in particular:
Typical tasks include:
•Identification of the suite of test tools and test data required to support V&V activities, and definition of development / procurement approach and associated planning.
•Preparation of User Requirement Documents, Statements of Work, etc., as needed as input for development and/or procurement activities.
•Support for in-house development and validation of test tools and their maintenance.
•Support for procurements of test tools / test data, including the analysis of received deliverables and attending acceptance tests.
•Support for acceptance of test tools / test data provided by partners.
•Simulation of test data sets for V&V using available tools; compilation of test data sets using real data from satellite & instrument on-ground tests or in-orbit operation.
•In case of tools to be connected to the ground segment, input for the specification and test of relevant interfaces.
•Support for configuration management of tools / test data sets, using applicable EUMETSAT processes.
•Operation of the tools, or support for it, when used for system and ground segment V&V activities.
•Contributions to the analysis of test results and the preparation of test reports.
In addition the key-person will be involved in some more general tasks:
•Participation in relevant internal and external meetings.
