Within the micro-gravity department, participates to projects addressing the design of satellite antenna.
Contributes to pre-design phases and data post-processing.
Conducts physical tests of mechanical structures.
- Evaluated the compatibility of and selected trim mechanisms for satellite antennas using piezoelectric actuators.
- Designed a test bench for antenna deployment, validated through finite-element and thermal analyses.
- Calculated high-duty bolted joints mounted on satellite shield according to the VDI2230 method.
- Operated and reported about structural tests on the thermal shield of the Bepi Colombo orbiter.
