ESA is looking for a Galileo Safety of Life (SoL) System Engineer.
Galileo Safety of Life (SoL) System Engineer in the Galileo Signal in Space Engineering Unit in the Galileo G1 System Engineering Service, Galileo First Generation Project Office, Galileo Programme Department, Directorate of Navigation.
The Unit is in charge of all Signal in Space Interface Engineering activities needed for completion of the Galileo System and conducts Safety of Life activities to ensure acceptance of Galileo for use in aviation. The Open Service Signals will enable SoL applications through augmentation via Space-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) Dual Frequency Multi-Constellation (DFMC) (in particular EGNOS V3) and application of the concept of Advanced Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (ARAIM).
You will report to the Head of the Galileo Signal in Space Engineering Unit and have principal responsibility for SoL-related tasks for Galileo G1 Full Operational Capability (FOC). You will ensure that the Galileo system can support SoL applications (DFMC SBAS and ARAIM) and is accepted by the aviation user community.
Your duties will include:
ARAIM/SBAS architecture concept covering receiver algorithm and GNSS system implications
Safety & RAMS engineering
GNSS Signal-in-Space Processing and Performance
Fault monitoring concepts and related barriers
Probability and Statistics Theory and its application
Space System Engineering
Master’s degree in aerospace or electrical engineering, mathematics or physics is required.
You should have at least five years’ experience in GNSS Safety engineering at system level covering experience in design, development and verification.
Proven experience in the analysis and application of System Integrity Applications using GNSS data is required. You should demonstrate an awareness of the various SoL concepts developed based on GNSS with a solid understanding of their operation and participating stakeholders.
You should demonstrate that you can handle pressure and conflict as may typically occur in a project team. You should be results-oriented, able to set priorities, capable of presenting practical solutions both verbally and in writing.
You should have good leadership, interpersonal and communication skills. You should have the ability to work autonomously, effectively and cooperatively in a diverse, international team environment, defining and implementing solutions in line with team and individual objectives and project deadlines.
