LSE Space is looking for an Engineer (m/f) fulfilling the task of Spacecraft Operations Engineering to support the Galileo Project at ESOC in Darmstadt.
The position will be part of the GALILEO ESOC Flight Control Team. The primary areas of responsibility for this service are Data Handling, TT&C & OBSM.
The Galileo LEOP operations preparation and execution will be carried out by a Flight Control Team comprising CNES and ESOC engineers. The plan is for LEOPs to take place either at ESOC Darmstadt or CNES Toulouse, with the complete team involved in each LEOP preparation and partial team taking part in the LEOP at each site.
The incumbent will support and closely cooperate with the SOM during the pre-launch operations preparation, ops products validation and the LEOP execution phases of Galileo IOC missions.
The responsibilities of the DHS-TT&C & OBSM SOE include in particular:
• Data Handling, TT&C, on-board software and OBSM operations engineer;
• Close interaction and working with the other Galileo LEOP SOEs, based at ESOC and CNES;
• Review of documentation produced by the Galileo spacecraft manufacturer (SSEG);
• Review of the procedures created by SSEG;
• Review of the procedures created by OPS;
• Development of LEOP specific nominal and contingency recovery operating procedures using the MOIS tools;
• Providing specialist subsystem advice on the development and content of the Operational Database;
• Development of tools to manage the Data Handling and TT&C subsystems during LEOP – in particular ANDs, GRDs, mimics and off-line tools;
• Validation of procedures using the Galileo Constellation Simulator (CSIM) and the Galileo LEOP specific (SCOS2000 based) control system (L-SCCF);
• Preparation for and participation in the SCTCs (SVTs). This will also involve the preparation of SCTC specific procedures and the writing of SCTC reports;
• Identification, recording, investigation and progression of spacecraft and ground-based anomalies during the SCTCs, simulations campaign and LEOP;
• Preparation for and participation in the simulations campaign;
• Assistance to the simulations officer to provided specialist subsystem knowledge for the simulations campaign.
• Participation in the LEOP. This will involve shift-working to provide 24 hour support to the spacecraft;
• Support Handover and post-LEOP activities, including contribution to the LEOP report.
