Description of the job

An Internship for Satellite Image Performance (m/f) has arisen within the Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse.

Image performance is the key components of the acquisition chain for observation missions and planetary exploration missions. Needs in processing are of various types: restoration, registration, image fusion, tracking, navigation, image simulation, etc.

The Internship will consist in developing and testing new algorithms in one of the above-cited domain within the Space System business line of Airbus Defence & Space. The subject will be more precisely defined during the interview, depending first, on the different studies of the image department and second, on the aspirations of the candidate.

The Image Processing and Image Simulation team, through a group of about 50 engineers in 2015 constitutes the Image Chain department. The Image team carries out activities in fundamental image domains such as Image simulation, Ground processing, Image quality, In-orbit testing, Embedded processing, Vision based navigation and Dedicated R&D activities.

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