Through this seminar a panoramic on the current and future activities at DEIMOS Space will be provided, offering an overview of the most recent industrial technological development in the space sector. This will also provide to the students first-hand feedback about the application of the theoretical knowledge that they have been developing during their academic career.
Simone Centuori is currently the Flight Segment Director at DEIMOS Space, a team composed of about 150 engineers in Spain, Portugal, UK, Romania, and Italy, and dedicated to all the DEIMOS activities related with the flight component of a space mission. From mission design to trajectory calculation and flight dynamics, from GNC to AOCS, from on-board SW to avionics and spacecraft platforms and AIT, the projects developed in Flight Segment along the last 20 years have covered a wide range of applications in Earth Observation, Space Exploration and Atmospherics Flight. Simone obtained his MSc degree in aerospace engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 2005 and his personal background is in mission analysis, both for Earth observation and interplanetary missions: with almost 20 years’ experience in the space sector spent between ESA, GMV and DEIMOS, Simone led the mission analysis of several ESA missions, among them FLEX, BIOMASS, Phobos Sample Return and Mars Sample Return.
