Sapienza Consulting is recruiting a Radio Navigation Engineer to support the Directorate of Technology, Engineering and Quality.
Support to Navigation Projects (e.g. EGNOS and GALILEO) and R&D activities in the fields of safety-related Position-Navigation-Timing (PNT) applications including aspects related to PVT integrity and assurance (security).
Participation in studies supporting current and future PNT systems definition and/or analysis for security and safety-related applications (e.g.regarding system architecture, ground processing and user segment technologies).
Support to the activities relating to technology development, standardisation and working groups on PVT assurance and safety-related PNT applications.
Design, definition and follow up of industrial contracts related to the procurement of GNSS testbeds and receivers for infrastructure or user applications, and in particular, for what concerns safety-related applications (e.g. in railway, maritime and automotive sectors), PVT integrity and assurance (security).
Support design, implementation, maintenance and operation of Radio Navigation equipment, complex Radio Navigation simulation tools and test facilities for testing features (end-to-end performances, receivers, etc.) in the aforementioned activities.
Support end-to-end GALILEO/EGNOS System Integration, Validation and Qualification activities in particular for new features and receivers in the area of safety-related applications (e.g. in railway, maritime and automotive sectors) including PVT integrity and assurance (security) aspects.
Master’s Degree in Engineering or equivalent.
5-10 years of experience in fields related to the intended activities.
Background and experience in GNSS systems and technologies, in particular for PVT integrity (including SBAS, RAIM/ARAIM, integration of sensors, etc.).
Experience in system design and technologies in the field of wireless systems for safety-related applications (e.g. radio-navigation and telecommunications), and in the field of user equipment technologies (e.g. signal processing, design, performances, standardization, etc.) for wireless systems (e.g. GNSS, 3GPP, etc.).
Background or experience in at least one of the following is desirable: wireless security, GNSS PVT assurance, any of the aforementioned application domains (railway, automotive, maritime) and their associated safety standards.
Fluent in English; knowledge of another ESA member-state language is an asset.
