As the successful candidate, you will join the Attitude Orbit Control (AOCS) and Guidance Navigation Control (GNC) (?TESOA2?) department.

You will be in charge of AOCS / GNC studies for satellite and space projects in development phase. The projects cover all applicative domains: Earth Observation (e.g. Pleiades-Néo, CO3D, export systems), Science missions (e.g. Juice, Biomass, Merlin), or telecommunication satellites (e.g. SES Astra, Arabsat, EurostarNeo, OneSat, OneWeb ...).


This position will require a security clearance or will require being eligible for clearance by the recognized authorities.


Task & accountabilities :
Your main tasks and responsibilities will include:

• Design of AOCS / GNC estimation and control laws, and all associated on-board algorithms: requirements engineering for AOCS functional chain (mission, environment, spacecraft dynamics characteristics, avionics equipments performances), analysis and trade-offs of control solutions, preliminary performances on functional simulators.
• Definition, specification and implementation of representative modelling of sensors and actuators, covering functional, performances and dynamics aspects, to be used within the Functional Validation Bench FVB (simulator running AOCS flight software in closed-loop).
