As the AIV Manager, you will be responsible for the Assembly, Integration, and Verification (AIV) of a satellite, ensuring it is ready for launch. You will begin by reviewing all AIV-related requirements to establish a solid AIV plan. Throughout the project, you will oversee the assembly, integration, and verification processes, ensuring all activities are executed according to the project schedule. This includes managing environmental testing such as Vibration & Shock, Thermal Vacuum, and EMC, as well as satellite functional and electrical testing from unit level to full satellite testing.

You will work closely with project managers, technical leads, and the functional test leader. During Qualification Acceptance Reviews (QAR) or Final Acceptance Review (FAR), you will present a comprehensive Verification Control Document (VCD) to the customer, demonstrating that all higher-level requirements have been met and accepted.

  • Report progress to the Project Manager/Technical Lead and propose solutions to minimize impacts on the project schedule.

  • Collaborate effectively with all disciplines and roles.
  • Work in a structured, thorough manner with a clear focus on achieving objectives within the schedule.
  • Align the use of shared resources to support testing.
