Didac Zurita Piñol - Altran Consultant at Aeronautics Department
"If you are a pilot, and you need to attend to other flight duties and also get some rest, you will need a Monitoring and Alerting Subsystem (MAS) which will control the performance of the Flight Control Computer and will alert you if anything is out of range.
I am System Engineer at the core team of MAS which is meant to be installed in HB-SIB. I provide Technical and Management support for the SW & HW design, development, safety, testing & integration on the Stabilisation Autopilot System (SAS), being the responsible of HW and the Head of Test Campaign, including QA, supplier & resource management, requirement management, etc.
I grew up in Barcelona (Spain) where I completed two Bachelors: Aeronautic Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering at Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC) after studied it at Technische Universität München (TUM) in Munich (Germany). Then, I moved to Madrid (Spain) to do a Master in Space Technology at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and work for Sener Engineering and Systems. I have just finished an EMBA at EAE Business School and I currently work as an Altran consultant in the technological challenge of Stabilisation Autopilot System (SAS) for Solar Impulse with the best team one can ever imagine."
