Radio Navigation Receiver Engineer

(ESA – ESTEC)

Sapienza Consulting is recruiting a Radio Navigation Receiver Engineer to work for ESA-ESTEC.
The position is to provide support to Navigation Projects such as EGNOS and GALILEO.
Alongside this you will be supporting R&D activities in the fields of system and receivers’ performances in a hybrid PNT framework.

Radio Navigation Receiver Engineer:

  • Participation in studies supporting current and future PNT systems definition and/or analysis, in particular for what concerns system performances and receiver algorithms (signal processing, advanced hybrid PNT algorithms, situational awareness and mitigation of local impairments) for improved availability, reliability and resilience.
  • Participation to the activities supporting standardisation and technical working groups addressing the aforementioned topics;
  • Design, definition and follow up of industrial contracts related to the aforementioned topics, including R&D activities and./or procurement of GNSS testbeds and receivers for infrastructure or user technologies /user segments
  • 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.

Profile of the Radio Navigation Receiver Engineer:

  • Master’s Degree in Engineering.
  • At least 4 years of relevant work experience.
  • Specific knowledge in the design and testing of Radio Navigation systems and equipment.
  • Strong knowledge on the design of satellite navigation systems, ranging and positioning techniques, RF, signal processing techniques, and digital navigation receivers.
  • Relevant experience with the GNSS1, EGNOS and/or GALILEO systems and equipment and have and good knowledge of Radio Navigation simulation and testing systems.
  • Proven experience in the implementation, maintenance and operation of complex Radio Navigation simulation and test facilities for spacecraft, aircraft, maritime and land mobile applications.
  • Strong experience at user level with satellite navigation receivers and satellite navigation positioning and integrity algorithms.
  • Some experience in system design and user equipment technologies for secure wireless systems is considered an asset
  • Background and experience (including hands-on tests and field trials) in several of the following fields: GNSS and associated user technologies, non-GNSS positioning systems (e.g. alternative PNT, 5G, etc.) and associated user technologies
  • Advanced signal processing and estimation algorithms applied to PNT (for instance including but not limited to some of the following: MIMO signal processing, kalman filter, particle filter, artificial intelligence and machine learning for sensor fusion).
  • Some experience of commercial simulation software is desirable.
  • Fluent in English; knowledge of another ESA member-state language is an asset
  • Excellent knowledge of English, additional knowledge of another ESA member state language is desirable
  • Candidates must be eligible to work in the EU
