This Statement of Work (SoW) describes the work to be done by a QA Consultant in support of the QA Team within the Geostationary Satellite Programme (GEO) Division at EUMETSAT.
There are two main Programmes running in the GEO Division at present:
The MSG Programme started its routine operations service following the launch of the MSG- 1 satellite in August 2002, and the completion of its commissioning phase in early 2003. The twin in orbit satellite configuration specified for this Programme was reached after the launch of MSG-2 in December 2005, followed by its commissioning phase in 2006. MSG-1 and MSG-2 are in operations under the names of Meteosat-8 and Meteosat-9. Two other satellites have been manufactured, MSG-3 and MSG-4, which constitute the replacement of the spacecrafts currently in orbit service. For them the ongoing work relates to completion of the open areas of work, and correction of anomalies and non-conformances identified during the Assembly Integration and Testing (AIT) phase. Following a storage period, they will be prepared and become ready for launch, launched and commissioned. The planned launch dates for MSG-3 and -4 are second half of 2012 and first half 2014 respectively.
The Ground Segment (GS) of MSG has been developed, maintained and upgraded internally at EUMETSAT.
The MSG Operations Preparation Integrated Team (OPIT) is a team composed by personnel of the GEO division and of the Operations Department which is led by the MSG Operations Preparation manager.
The MTG programme is presently running under the framework of the MTG Preparatory Programme, started in January 2008 and ending in mid 2011 with the close-out of the System Preliminary Design Review. The full MTG Programme has been unanimously approved by all Member States.
The Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) system is conceived to continue and significantly enhance the service offered to the users via the existing GEO systems.
The nominal MTG system’s space segment will comprise three satellites positioned in parallel in orbit, two MTG-I satellites and one MTG-S satellite. MTG-I, the so called imaging satellite, will take on board an imaging radiometer, the Flexible Combined Imager (FCI), and an imaging lightning detection instrument, the Lightning Imager (LI). MTG-S, the so called sounding satellite, will take on board an imaging Fourier interferometer, the InfraRed Sounder (IRS), with hyperspectral resolution in the thermal spectral domain, and a high resolution spectrometer, the Ultraviolet- Visible Near infrared (UVN) Instrument provided via ESA’s GMES Space Component Programme.
The MTG Programme Ground segment is responsible for acquiring the following facilities needed to deliver the MTG products:
These interface with a number of multi-mission support elements.
The Ground Segment of MTG will be developed by EUMETSAT and it will encompass preliminary and detailed definition, production, verification and pre-launch operation validation, including all associated reviews.
The GEO QA consultant will be integrated into the GEO QA Team which provides support to the GEO Division, and his/her tasks will have to be provided on both MSG and MTG programmes, in accordance with the priorities agreed with the GEO QA Team Leader and the MSG and MTG Programme Management.
In this framework, the tasks of the GEO QA consultant shall include, but not necessarily be limited, to the following:
For the MSG-3 Operations Preparation (including in orbit system commissioning):
The consultant is required to have the capability and experience level ensuring the fulfillment of the assigned tasks with the minimum of supervision.
University degree in Physics or Computer Sciences is the requested educational level.
The consultant shall have a work experience in PA/QA areas of at least 5 years gained in advanced technology sectors, preferably in aerospace and space products and projects.
In detail, the consultant is expected to demonstrate:
· Involvement in an Earth Observation Ground Segment development project and/or satellite in orbit commissioning will be considered an advantage.
In line with Asylum & Immigration Legislation, all applicants must be eligible to live and work in the EU. Documented evidence of eligibility will be required from candidates as part of the recruitment process. Furthermore, in view of the nature of the work the company is in, all potential employees will undergo stringent reference and identity checks.
