Description of the job

An internship for Image processing - Machine learning for vision based navigation (m/f) has arisen within the Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse.

Vision-based navigation is an enabler for many space applications like in orbit servicing, landing on asteroids, debris removal. However the processing required for such needs shall deal with the very limited resources of the spacecrafts: algorithms have to be heavily optimized in that perspective.

One lead to increase processing efficiency is to rely on machine learning; the tremendous evolution in this domain (e.g. deep learning) opens new possibilities.

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

Tasks & accountabilities

The internship period will consist in applying some machine learning technics to vision-based algorithms developed in the department, within the Image Chain department of the Space System business line of Airbus Defence & Space.

The subject will be more precisely detailed during the interview, depending on the different studies of the image department and on your aspirations. Depending on the planning of the internship, the contents may be adapted to be as interesting as possible.

You shall have both a solid image processing background and computer programming skills (C/C++, Python).

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, and in computer programming,
·  Generic knowledge in image processing as well as numerical analysis,
·  Knowledge of Matlab or C/C++, Python programming and of Windows & Linux OS
·  Interest in Machine Learning technologies,
·  Advanced level in English required. Notions of French could be a plus
