Description of the job

An internship for Image processing for space applications (m/f) has arisen within the Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse.

Image performance is the key components of the acquisition chain for observation and planetary exploration missions. Needs in processing are of various types. Space systems usual processing involves restoration, registration, image fusion, features detection, image simulation. Newer applications involve 3D, videos, tracking and navigation.

We are looking for several interns within our department to work on 3 kinds of algorithmic thematic. Depending on the planning of the internship, the contents may be adapted to be as interesting as possible. The subjects already identified this year may be in the following list:

Internship period length: 5 to 6 months between January and September 2017.

Internships at Airbus Group

Tasks & accountabilities

You would be able to work on two themes:

1st Theme: R&D on operational systems imaging performance monitoring: for instance

·  Automatic image performance monitoring of in-orbit satellite (ex SPOT6&7)
·  Very precise imaging geometry for high resolution satellite
·  Radiometric correction

2nd Theme: R&D on video imaging: for instance

·  Visualisation and navigation in very large video feeds
·  Usage of a Virtual Reality device

The objective of the internship is to implement operational image processing algorithms to extend or replace existing operational functions in our operational image processing modules, keeping a high technical quality/performance level (accuracy, timeliness).

Operational image processing software will be developed in C++ and Python languages.

Required skills

We are looking for candidates with the following profile:

·  Enrolled in your final Master degree in an Engineering School or equivalent,
·  Ideally specialised in Signal and Image processing or applied mathematics,
·  Generic knowledge in image processing as well as numerical analysis,
·  Knowledge of Matlab or C/C++, Python programming,
·  Advanced level in English required. Notions of French could be a plus.
