Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.

Description of the job

An internship position in flight controls has arisen within Airbus in Toulouse. You will join the Aircraft Control Architecture & Functions department.

The Flight Control System (FCS) of an aircraft is primarily used to control its trajectory, attitude and speed. It consists of all the elements located between the pilot inputs (in the cockpit) and the control surfaces (e.g. ailerons, elevators…), including sensors, wires, actuators and flight control computer. To decrease the pilot workload, the Auto-Pilot is generally engaged to maintain the altitude, speed and heading, especially during the cruise phase. Under some circumstances, slight deviations from altitude, speed or heading targets may occur. It is suitable to detect this situation in order to recover a nominal trajectory, i.e. to limit excursions within acceptable bounds, according to applicable certification requirements.

This internship will start in February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).

Tasks & accountabilities

This internship will be dedicated to upset condition detection means, control law adaptation design and associated tuning.

·  The first step will consist of getting to know with the context, the technical issue and the current industrial state of practice.
·  Basic methods will be investigated in a second step, typically inspired by a bibliographic study. Most promising options will be developed in a simulated environment.
·  This appropriate V&V activity shall lead to fine-tuning of the selected solution.
·  Associated synthetic technical report will be required to finalize the study, including lessons learned.

Required skills

We are looking for candidates with the following skills and experience:

·  In the 2nd year of a Master's degree or in the 5th year of an engineering school, specialising in aeronautical engineering
·  Knowledge in flight mechanics, control design and automation
·  Knowledge in aeronautics operations would be appreciated
·  Experience with Matlab/Simulink programming is required
·  Excellent interpersonal skills, proactivity, open-mindedness
·  English: advanced; knowledge of French would be beneficial
