MOLTEK Group announce that EUMETSAT (the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites), has awarded a contract for the position of Spacecraft Operations Engineer for the MSG/MTP/MOP series of satellites. This long term position will support EUMETSAT in routine and anomaly operations of these different Geostationary satellites.
EUMETSAT is mandated to establish, maintain and exploit Europe’s system of meteorological satellites providing operational Earth observations for a current total of 19 Member and 11 Cooperating States.
Since its foundation in 1986 EUMETSAT has been contributing a wealth of reliable and high quality satellite data which are used for the purposes of meteorological forecasting (especially ‘Nowcasting’ i.e. very short term forecasting) and which are also used in numerical weather prediction models.
