HAMTEC Consulting a provider of quality staff to the aerospace industry.

 

We are currently seeking a University educated engineer in a relevant discipline, with a minimum of 5 years experience in the field of remote sensing product data processing and analysis including at least 2 years of experience of UV/Visible/NIR calibration and validation. Further the consultant shall have a solid background in software engineering.

 

Location: Darmstadt, Germany

Start Date: ASAP

Closing date: 24 August 2016

 

TASKS:

 

In-house consultancy support is sought for the ongoing processor development activities in preparation for the future UVN instrument to be flown on MTG-S. The key person will provide support within the Atmospheric Composition Team in the Remote Sensing and Products (RSP) Division of EUMETSAT, located in Darmstadt, Germany. He/she will be fully integrated in the Atmospheric Composition Team and will interface with in-house experts of various disciplines (system, instruments, operations, science), and in particular

members of the MTG Science and Instrument Teams.

 

The tasks of the key person will include:

  • Provision of support to the development of algorithms for calibration of UVN level 0 data;
  • Provision of support to the development of an Instrument Data Simulator;
  • Taking into account the constraints imposed by the final goal of implementation of the products within an operational processing system;
  • Provision of support to the development of prototype software code for the purposes of testing and validation the algorithms developed;
  • Provision of support to the development of an instrument performance model based on specifications to be provided by industry;
  • Provision of support to the development of software for cross-calibration and validation activities;
  • Generation of test data required for the verification of the algorithm and products;
  • Provision of support to the generation of associated documentation including test data descriptions, Product Specification (PS), technical reports etc;
  • Interfacing with experts across EUMETSAT as needed;
  • Collaboration with expert groups and the wider scientific community outside EUMETSAT as appropriate;
  • Assessment of results from scientific studies;
  • Provision of support to operational level 2 processor development activities, for future level 2 product development for the UVN instrument.

 

The tasks will evolve as the MTG/UVN specifications mature and activities evolve in the

coming years..
