EUMETSAT is Europe’s meteorological satellite agency - monitoring the weather and climate from space - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
This is your chance to contribute to a world leading earth observation programme, set to generate global weather forecasting and climate monitoring benefits. As a Systems Engineer you will be at the heart of ensuring all elements of this complex system work together to deliver world leading meteorological products. The Systems Engineer contributes to the system engineering activities, those related to requirements engineering, system budgets engineering, management of the system design and its interfaces.
EUMETSAT is developing its next generation geostationary satellite system, Meteosat Third Generation (MTG), in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), and will launch the first three MTG satellites in the 2022-2025 period.
The MTG system includes three satellites of two different types, for imagery (MTG-I) and sounding (MTG-S) missions and a comprehensive ground segment for mission control, data acquisition and processing and delivery of real time products to users, and a number of system support tools.
Working in collaboration with other engineering teams (MTG-S instrument functional chain, ground segment, verification teams, operations preparation,) and relevant MTG project management bodies:
