Description of the job

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

Rotating reaction wheels used for AOCS create disturbance forces and torques than can degrade image quality of Science or Earth observation mission. One of the roles of the AOCS engineer during the design phases is to predict this impact.

The first steps of the process are the identification of the disturbances induced by the wheels, and the analysis of the disturbance propagation within a satellite structure, from the wheels to the instruments.

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