ONERA Personnel

Dr Sébastien Bourdarie has worked at the Space Environment Department of ONERA since 1993. He is currently involved in physical modelling of electron radiation belts (Salammbo code) for the Earth and Jupiter, as well as artificial radiation belts created by high-altitude nuclear weapons. Related to this activity, he acquired a great experience in processing and interpreting data from particle detectors onboard different satellites. He has developed a space radiation database from various monitors. He is involved in data assimilation tool development, in particular an ensemble Kalman filter for the Earth electron radiation belt. He is also involved in spacecraft anomaly analysis. He is also in charge of supervision and examination of PhD students. He is teacher in space environment. Responsibilities and achievement: 2010-today: Member of the science committee board of the Sun-Earth system (PNST) division of CNRS, 2009-today: Member of the science committee board of the Physics division at ONERA, 2006-today: Member of the RADECS (RADiation Effects on Components and Systems) council board, 2004-today: Chairman of the COSPAR PRBEM panel, 1997-2009: Manager for DESP computer infrastructure, Referee for J. Geophys. Res., Geophys. Rev. Lett., Adv. Space. Res., Referee for NASA NRA and NSF scientific proposals.

Dr Angelica Sicard-Piet did her PhD on Jupiter's radiation belts at the Space Environment Department of ONERA between 2001-2004. She spent 2 years at CNES and is now back at ONERA analysing data from particle detectors onboard different satellites and developing specification models for geostationary and medium Earth orbit. She has developed a code for the interaction of electrons and VLF waves (WAPI) and is now in charge of the ONERA part of the ESA contract on the development of a new environment model of Jupiter.

Dr Didier Lazaro has worked at the Radar and ElectroMagnetic Department (DEMR) of ONERA for ten years where he was involved in EU and DGA programs on electromagnetic compatibility on aeronautic structures, cable networks and electronic components. He joined the radiation belt modelling group in 2002 where he is involved in modelling high energy particles, radiation dose to satellites and data analysis. He is in charge of updating internal data bases from detectors on board several satellites from different countries. He is project manager for an ESA study related to the definition of the energetic electron environment for the Galileo constellation.

Dr Vincent Maget has worked at the Space Environment Department of ONERA between 2004 and 2007 as a PhD student on data assimilation in the Earth radiation belts. After a year in space industry, he is now again at the Space Environment Department of ONERA as a scientist. He has valuable experience in radiation belt modelling directly relevant to the proposal.
