Radio Navigation Receiver Engineer


Key Tasks and Responsibilities


As part of the Radio Navigation Systems & Techniques Team at ESTEC, you will have the following responsibilities:
• Support to Navigation Projects (e.g. EGNOS and Galileo) and R&D activities in the fields of system and receivers performances in a hybrid PNT framework (GNSS algorithms at signal and position level, dead-reckoning motion sensors such as INS, vision-based INS, alternative PNT systems, use of signals from cellular network, etc.);
• 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.


Skills & Experience


You will have the following qualifications and relevant experience:
• University degree in telecommunications and signal processing or electronic engineering, as well as experience in these fields;
• 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 in system design and user equipment technologies for secure wireless systems is considered an asset;
• Fluency in English is mandatory; knowledge of another European language is an advantage.
