We are looking for a Performance Simulation Engineer E3 to join our Modis Aerospace team, working onsite at the European Space Agency in the Netherlands. Modis Aerospace is a specialized Engineering consultancy with more than 30 years experience providing aerospace Engineers to our key partners in The Netherlands. Modis is a longstanding business partner of the European Space Agency ESA, with more than 120 employees recruited from across Europe currently supporting ESAs activities. Specific tasks to be performed The holder of this post will contribute to all aspects project internal activities, monitoringreview of the relevant industrial activities, interaction with Mission Users and Scientists, interaction with Eumetsat relevant to the mission performance of the S4S5 mission as well support Head of EOPPEP in the definition and promotion of generic approach and processes relevant to E2E Mission Performance Chain in coordination with other Mission Performance Engineers. The post holder will report to both to the S4S5 Ground Segment Engineer as well as to the Head of EOPPEP Office for the horizontal tasks. The principal tasks and responsibilities relevant to S4S5 include Support the verification of mission and system level requirements in the areas of Mission observation and Data products Support the procurement and acceptance of S4S5 simulator, Ground Processor Prototype GPP and reference processors Maintain mission performance tools to support the assessment of the relevant industrial development activities Support the payload team for aspects relevant to instrument performance requirements flowdown and instrument performance verification Follow up with industry the specification, procurement, verificationvalidation and acceptance activities for Simulator and GPP Acquire working knowledge of tools for test data generation purposes and internal mission level verification activities Verify, recondition and generate any data at CCSDS level or higher needed to support these activities Support the preparation, execution and analysis of the relevant inflight calval operations during the commissioning phase Interface with EUMETSAT Operational Ground Segment for Requirement definition and reviews of the Ground processor aspects Support crossverification activities with the operational ground segment against the Ground Processor Prototype and Reference Processors organise, draft the agenda and convene the meetings to achieve the objectives above The principle tasks and responsibilities relevant to horizontal activity include review and maintain the standards and documentation in MS Word, Powerpoint and HTML relevant to E2E Mission Performance activity developed within EOP support andor develop cross platform sw toos OSX, Windows, Unix related to the implementation of these standards proactively interface with stakeholder within EOP to gather further requirements or evolution of process coordinate the development of internal repository and tools e.g. redmine websites, sharepoint to support cooperative working within EOP on these aspects General tasks to be performed In preparation for the commissioning phase CP which aims at validating the instruments and products, a HW and SW infrastructure has to be established to assess and simulate the optical and the topographic instruments. This infrastructure will consist of instrument simulators SPS and prototype Ground Segment processors GPP, provided through the Industrial consortium, plus additional tools necessary to perform commissioning tasks for geolocation, coregistration, storage of products, etc, which need to be identified and made available by the Agency. On top of the HWSW infrastructure, test procedures shall be developed, which prepare the activities defined to be executed during the CP. This shall include means to react in a flexible way to contingencies. Preparation of scenarios, rehearsal and replanning of activities are foreseen as well. In particular the tasks include Operate and control the instrument simulators and data processors HW SW infrastructure, including task preparation in the perspective of rehearsalscommissioning activities Generation of instruments simulated Packets using instrument simulators SPS Generation of Optical and Topography products using processors GPP Analysis of results on packet level visavis a defined success criteria Analysis of SW anomalies Support the preparation and execution of the Ground System Validation GSV Support to specifications of expected anomaly corrections and MMI improvements Implement the nominal and contingency test procedures for the execution of the activities defined in the CP tasks During CP, being responsible for the execution of the test procedures Support the preparation and execution of the handover process between development and operations. To successfully perform the above mentioned tasks, the following background experience is required Applicants for this post should have a university degree at least Masters degree or equivalent qualification in a relevant physical science, software or engineering subject, together with a demonstrated background and experience in managingfollowing software developments in a space project environment. The candidate must possess solid analytical skills, a proactive and flexible attitude, together with the capability to critically analyse the work performed by industry in the relevant areas, quickly identify the problems and proposeinstigate corrective actions. The candidate should also be able to organise and conduct meetings with different parties, assertively presenting results and facilitating convergence on technical aspects. The candidate shall demonstrate to be proficient with programming tools and languages relevant to the implementation and maintenance of the simulators and GPPs e.g. C, C, Java and Python and at ease with modern build systems. Knowledge in managing and configuration of cooperative environment redmine, confluence, jira, etc and in manipulating CCSDS data is an asset. Knowledge in Satellite environment, Ground System and remote sensing in general is required. First experience of optical payload simulators and processors, such as ENVISATMERIS or SPOT mandatory, topography payload, such as JASON, Cryosat optional Candidates shall demonstrate good familiarity with computer programs such as MATLAB and other libraries. Familiarity with UML. In the field of System Management, knowledge of operation system Linux and Windows mandatory, and Unix optional. Development environments. Fluent in the English language spoken and written knowledge of other languages is an asset. About ESAESTEC The European Space Agency ESA has sites in several European countries. The European Space Research and Technology Centre ESTEC is the largest site and the technical heart of ESA. This nursery of European space activities is located in Noordwijk, Netherlands. At ESTEC, about 2500 engineers, technicians and scientists work handson with mission design, spacecraft and space technology. Almost all ESA projects except launchers are managed from ESTEC. In Noordwijk, people work on science missions, manned space missions, Earth observation, telecommunications and navigation satellites. ESTEC provides extensive testing facilities to verify the proper operation of spacecraft, such as the Large Space Simulator LSS, acoustic and electromagnetic testing bays, multiaxis vibration tables and the ESA Propulsion Laboratory EPL.
