Description of the job

Airbus Defence and Space (Toulouse) is looking for an intern for a 6 month internship.

For more than a decade, Airbus Defence and Space has been investigating robust navigation solutions for space applications. State of the art technologies may apply for both space and terrestrial applications, in this case both during the last few thousand kilometres of an asteroid approach, and during proximity operations of UAVs.

Fostering the evolution of cutting edge technologies, the GNC and Image processing teams in Toulouse are investigating high-performance vision-based solutions.
The purpose of this internship is to support the GNC team in the development of the library of vision-based algorithm for navigation.

This internship will start on 3 rd April 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
