Internship/Future launcher mission organisation (m/f)

Airbus Safran Launchers Les Mureaux

A 50–50 joint venture established by Airbus Group and Safran, Airbus Safran Launchers brings together all the expertise and assets of these two industry leaders in the fields of civil and military launch vehicles.
Its combination of a unique technological and industrial heritage and the dynamism of a truly passionate workforce is what makes Airbus Safran Launchers what it is today – the world leader in access to space with big ambitions.
With agility embedded right across its business, Airbus Safran Launchers can offer its customers particularly innovative, competitive solutions, striving to boost European space industry to the highest level and guarantee independent access to space.

Airbus Group is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2015, the Group - comprising Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space and Airbus Helicopters - generated revenues of € 64.5 billion and employed a workforce of around 136,600.

Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. 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

Airbus Safran Launchers (Les Mureaux) is looking for an intern for a 6-month internship.

In the last few years, competition in the sector of commercial satellite launches has increased, particularly with the arrival on the market of the SpaceX company and its Falcon 9 launcher.
In this new context, adapting to the market and the drive for competitiveness makes the reduction in production costs one of the major challenges for the future launchers of the Ariane family.
The mission analysis which precedes each launch constitutes one of the cost items to be reduced.
During your internship you will be part of the Airbus Safran Launchers teams tasked with developing guidance and attitude control algorithms of space vehicles. You will thus process the powered (trajectory formation) and orbital flight phases (orientation and spacing of the launcher for satellite positioning).
To carry out this mission, you will use work which has already been performed on the guidance and attitude control aspects.

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

Internships at Airbus Group

Tasks & accountabilities

Your main tasks will include:

·  Contributing to the optimisation and automation of the mission analysis process for the powered and orbital phases of future launchers, reducing the lifecycle of the mission analysis as much as possible,
·  Sharing the processing to be performed on the ground before the launch, by analysing the mission and those to be performed during the flight by the on-board software, particularly for the flight phase, i.e. orbital, directly from the satellite specifications and launcher characteristics (sequence of manoeuvres, optimal boost directions, sun direction, duration of manoeuvres, etc.).
·  Prototyping proposed solutions in a matlab/simulink simulation environment.

Required skills

You are in the final year of engineering school or in the 2nd year of a Master's degree or in the 5th year of university, specialising in Simulation, Modelling/Engineering.

Ideally, you have some experience in this field.

You have the following skills:

·  Flight mechanics, orbital mechanics
·  Space mechanics, Automatic control,
·  Knowledge of Matlab/Simulink and Unix environment.

You are a good team player and have excellent interpersonal skills.

English: advanced level,
French: fluent level.
