What if you start your journey with us!
As part of a school curriculum in initial training, you are looking for a mandatory internship or integrated into a gap year, that will allow you to validate your studies. The internship duration is 4 to 6 months maximum.
We offer you to work in a world-leading company which is at the heart of a digital transformation, at the cutting edge of research and innovation.
We are looking for an Engineering student (m/f) to join us at Airbus Defence & Space in our Toulouse site and work on the Design and Simulation of Next-generation Satellite Constellation Networks.
This internship is to be filled from March 2021 (hire dates are subject to a certain flexibility).
You will integrate the team in charge of System Advanced Studies for Satellite Upstream Ground Systems. Through research and development studies, this team is at the heart of the design and architecture of next generation satellite systems and contributes to their elaboration at different stages.
Next generation satellite systems are becoming very complex and challenging, in particular, satellite mega-constellations (OneWeb with the participation of Airbus, Starlink from SpaceX, Kuiper from Amazon, etc.) but also hybrid satellite systems (mixing several kinds of satellites with different orbits) come with inherent complexity and challenges related to the inter-connection between satellites and ground (also known as network convergence issues). This requires extensive system studies before being launched and running. For cost-effectiveness reasons, and since it has proven to give reliable results, a significant part of these studies rely on simulation to perform preliminary design, validation and performance assessment of such satellite constellations.
This internship will focus on the preliminary design and simulation of a system composed of a satellite constellation that should interconnect with terrestrial networks to provide seamless Internet access to its customers. Through this concrete project-based approach, this internship will ultimately consist in the development of a satellite constellation network simulator that should be as generic as possible.
Tasks and Responsibilities :
You will be working under the supervision of your manager who will help you identify your professional objectives and support you in the development of your skills.
As the main goal of your internship is the development of a generic satellite constellation network simulator, few representative use cases will be used to provide you with context. These use cases may, for instance, include telecommunication, scientific or observation systems. Besides, they will also be used as validation test cases once the simulator is implemented.
Your main activities will include:
You are preparing a Master in Engineering or equivalent with specialisation in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) or Space Systems and you have the following hard skills:
You will develop the following skills:
- Network technics for space contellation,
- Manage complex stakes in a preliminary design context,
- Manage R&D and Simulator projects.
Depending on the specifics of the offer, you may have to travel to another locations.
If your profile catches our attention, you will be invited to perform a video interview during which you will have a few minutes to tell us about your background, motivations and your professional project. Afterwards, your application could be proposed to the managers for further review.
