Description of the job

An internship in the 3D display of a satellite in orbit (m/f) has opened up at Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse.
Are you enthusiastic about space and interested in the visual display of the behaviour of satellites operating in orbit? Use your computing skills for operational analysis and investigation purposes by joining the orbit monitoring team!
Within the "Project Data Management & In-Orbit Support France" department, and in particular the In-Service Maintenance cell for earth observation satellites, the telemetry of the satellite condition - position and orientation in orbit is analysed.
In this context, you will be responsible for the improvement and development of the display tool functions, in order to contribute towards the efficiency of the behaviour analyses of earth observation and scientific satellites.
This internship will start in March 2017 (date subject to some flexibility).
