Description of the job
An internship for the Development of advanced mitigation algorithms for GNSS Signal processing (m/f) has arisen within the Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse.
GNSS receivers provide a means of positioning anywhere on the globe by measuring pseudoranges with respect to several satellites and combining them to estimate a position. However, the pseudorange measurements are affected by systematic errors that originate from several sources which include thermal noise, multipath, clock/ephemeris and atmospheric delays. Errors such as atmospheric errors can be reduced by using well known correction models or external corrections.
On the other hand, it is possible to robustify the GNSS receivers against multipath and interference at the signal processing level. For example, techniques such as double-delta, MEDLL or vision correlator have been developed to mitigate multipath errors.
The internship will be conducted within the Mission, Control, RF Chains Department (TSOTU4, ~60 engineers).
Internship length: 5 to 6 months between January and September 2017.
