Internship / Modelling the effects of lightning on a space launcher (m/f)

Airbus Safran Launchers Les Mureaux

Created by Airbus Group and Safran, Airbus Safran Launchers is a 50/50 joint venture bringing together the expertise and assets of both groups in terms of civil and military space launchers.
Its industrial and technological heritage, linked to the passion which drives the men and women of Airbus Safran Launchers, is what has enabled it to become the current world leader in space access.
Through clever operations at all levels, Airbus Safran Launchers offers innovative and competitive solutions to its customers, in order to bring the European space industry to its highest level and thereby 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 a trainee for a 6-month internship.

You will joint the Airbus Safran Launchers' CEM team (16 engineers) as part of activities to improve our numerical methods for treating electromagnetic environments applied to the development of our space launchers. The purpose of your internship will be to develop a new digital calculation process to characterise the effects of electrical and electromagnetic lightning on a launcher on its launch pad.
You will in particular focus on two digital processes currently used, that will have to be compared in tangible cases: one based on the method of the differences in the temporal domain (FDTD) and the other based on the method of finished surface components (BEM) in the frequency domain with a parametric approach.

This internship will be available from 1st February 2017 (subject to a certain degree of flexibility).

Tasks & accountabilities

Your responsibilities will include:

·  Assessing the advantages and drawbacks of the two processes on models of Ariane launchers (in terms of flexibility, precision, lattice structure representativeness, complexity, etc.)
·  Choosing the most appropriate digital processes and applying them to evaluations (impact of potential changes in defining the launcher, calculation of sensitivity to electrical, mechanical and geometric variables) on the Ariane 6 launcher subject to lightning attacks
·  Recommending innovative configurations from the point of view of lightning protection resources, which could form part of the cases to be assessed
·  Specifying the simulation drawings to define the logic of calculations regarding objectives
·  Preparing the CAD models so that they may be correctly interlinked
·  Processing and analysing the results for a conclusion.

Required skills

You are in the final year of engineering school, completing a Master's degree or in the 5th year of university, specialising in Engineering/Electronics, Microwave frequency, and more specifically Electromagnetism or Electro-Magnetic Compatibility.

Ideally, you have initial work experience.

You have skills in

·  Electromagnetism, or EMC
·  Numerical modelling

Experience in Unix/Linux environments and Python programming language will be appreciated.

Candidates must be comfortable working as part of a team and have excellent interpersonal skills.
