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

An internship in Statistics R&D Studies Engineering for Space Domain has arisen within Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse. You will join the Products & Space Physics Engineering department.
The Optimisation and Telecom Payload Management Products centre develops software project for the sizing and operating of telecom satellite payloads. Some of these products have contributed to the consolidation of skills in applied mathematics in the department, enabling it to address various problems related to the space field in terms of modelling, optimisation and data analysis.
The stakes of the good health of satellites have generated an explosion in data. In the context of Big Data, methods must be developed in order to analyse this automatic data. The data can be related to all life phases of the satellite, from calls for tender to its design and up to its flight phase: design data (cost, weight, geometry, etc.), validation data of the telecom payload in a vacuum chamber, equipment telemetry date during the in-orbit phase of the satellite.
This internship will start in February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).

Internships at Airbus Group

Tasks & accountabilities

You will be in charge of taking over two or three identified data analysis issues. For each issue, you will establish a state of the art, a benchmark of the various methods carried out in order to implement a tool solution (R, Python, Java, etc.) that can be used by non-expert engineers, based on statistic algorithms.
You will support the implementation of a data-lab at Airbus Defence and Space Toulouse and you will have the possibility to assist in conferences organised by the university community of Toulouse (IMT, LAAS, ONERA, etc.).
You will liaise with engineers of various disciplines.
This internship may be continued with a CIFRE PhD.
