Description of the job

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

European leader for Defence and Space, Airbus Safran Launchers is responsible for developing space systems, particularly commercial (Ariane 5/6) and military launchers. The smooth running of the mission of these vehicles is based, among other things, on flight control, and more specifically on CNG systems. Associated with guidance and piloting within the GNC loop, the purpose of the navigation function is to estimate the flight data necessary for the mission success. It is based on conventional methods in this field, such as the Kalman filter and its derivatives.
The use of such tools is, however, based on assumptions that involve various approximations - for example the linearity of the models used - and a fine adjustment of their parameters.

Integrated in the "Navigation Methods" team of the "Flight Control" department of Airbus Safran Launchers and this internship you will have the opportunity, among others, to acquire the key skills in space navigation and, more generally, in automatic flight and in scientific programming.

This internship will start on 1st March 2017 (subject to some flexibility).

Tasks & accountabilities

Based on an existing software library and integrating the most conventional filtering techniques, you will have, for example, the following missions:

·  Studying and developing non-linear filtering methods: "Unscented Kalman Filter" and particle filter,
·  Studying and developing the adjusting methods of these filters,
·  Take advantage of the tools developed to contribute to the design of the navigation filter on a NEO (Near Earth Object) interception application.

Required skills

You are in the final year of engineering school, completing a Master's degree or in the 5th year of a university degree, specialising in space engineering.

Ideally, you have some experience in this field.
You are proficient in object oriented (C++) programming and in filtering techniques.
You are recognised for your practical approach and autonomy
You are a good team player and have excellent interpersonal skills.

English: intermediate level.
French: fluent level.
