Vacancy GNSS Propagation & SBAS Processing Design Engineer

Sapienza Consulting is recruiting for an experienced System design engineer to work for ESA-EGNOS, in Toulouse, France. The general responsibilities of the service will be technical support in the area of propagation and associated algorithms design, in particular for ionosphere effects on GNSS signals and associated SBAS processing. The candidate will fulfill the following duties:

Responsibilities of the GNSS propagation design Engineer

  • Support to the coordination and critical assessment of all propagation and associated design related issues within EGNOS Project Office including algorithm assessment and recommendations
  • Support to the animation of an international technical subgroup (e.g. contributing to IWG Technical Subgroup) related to GNSS and Ionospheric modelling and processing (e.g. for iono gradients and scintillations)
  • Participation and contribution to multi-modal (e.g. Aviation, Maritime) GNSS standardisation groups for what concerns propagation effects modelling and processing (e.g. scintillation, multipath)
  • Support to the management of several R&D projects related to GNSS related propagation (e.g. MONITOR, Multi-path Studies, Interference mitigation)
  • Support to the preparation and validation of ionospheric model data and delivery to EGNOS V2/V3/Evolutions Contractor(s)
  • Support the coordination with TEC support with respect to propagation related subjects:
    • modelling of the navigation propagation signals using state-of- the-art software tools and databases
    • modelling of ionospheric propagation conditions and their effects on SBAS satellite navigation missions
    • Support the definition of campaigns to serve R&D and other EGNOS project needs (e.g. for scintillation monitoring)
    • Assist the Head of EGNOS Systems Engineering Section with the planning and execution of R&D activities as well as in managing the necessary software tools and databases related to IONO modelling and processing
  • Supporting several projects, the service provider will be involved in project reviews for EGNOS (e.g. V2/V3 system and sub-system reviews at algorithm level

Profile of the GNSS propagation design Engineer

  • Master’s degree or equivalent qualification in Engineering, physics or Computer science with proven knowledge and experience in the fields of Algorithms, Navigation and related data
  • At least 4 years of working experience in a relevant practical field
  • Knowledge and experience in EGNOS standards (e.g. MOPS/SARPS)
  • Knowledge and experience in EGNOS integrity & continuity justification files
  • Knowledge and experience in EGNOS system algorithmic performance related design & justification (in particular concerning propagation effects algorithmic solutions in SBAS)
  • Knowledge and experience in GNNS signals and R&D projects
  • Experiences in procurement of industrial activities
  • Knowledge and experience in using and assessing EGNOS performance simulations and tools
  • Excellent knowledge of English, additional knowledge of another ESA member state language is desirable.
  • Candidates must be eligible to work in the EU.
