Description of the job

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

Airbus Defence and Space is currently investigating several GNC solutions for the upcoming challenging space missions, involving one or more spacecraft flying in a complex dynamical environment.
Ongoing studies in the GNC Advanced Studies team in Toulouse allowed developing several phase 0/A tools for both heuristic and deterministic parametric optimization. These tools are currently used to analyze the feasibility of advanced mission concepts.

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

Tasks & accountabilities

Your purpose is to contribute to the expansion, design and validation of the in-house optimization tools. The hybridization of heuristic and deterministic optimization methods will also be analyzed, in order to take advantage of both approaches.

Eventually, you will contribute to the design of the optimal guidance laws for a set of challenging mission scenarios, adapting the proposed algorithms to the limited computational resources available onboard the spacecraft.

Required skills

You are in the 2nd year of a master's or the 5th year of engineering school, university or equivalent specializing in Engineering / Aerospace Engineering.

You ideally have an initial experience in this domain.

You have knowledge of:

·  Matlab, Simulink
·  Spacecraft Dynamics
·  Optimal Control Theory
·  Mathematical Programming.

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

English: negotiation level,
