Satcom System & Modem Architect

Job description

  • He / She is designing modems and communication systems from information source to destination.

  • He / She is responsible for analysis / design / validating and implementation of wireless communications and earth observation systems on various platform (software or FPGA).

  • He / She applies his / her knowledge in digital modulations, waveforms, the propagation channel (Doppler effect, propagation effects, noise) and base-band processing in both transmitter and receiver.

  • He / She is responsible for the preparation of documentation (justification files, conceptual and detail design, performance analysis, …).

  • He / She becomes part of a space flight and ground modem development team.

  • He / She is able to understand and perform critical analysis of customer requirements.

Job experience

  • Master in Electronics Engineering or equivalent through experience.

  • Experience in the field of wireless communications is a real added value, or a high intrinsic motivation to become an expert in this field.

Job competences
