Internship Electromagnetic and thermal analysis of a Radio Frequency

Company Details

Safran Data Systems designs, manufactures, distributes and operates high-tech products.

You will be part of the Space & Communication entity, within the Radio Frequency (RF) & Sources team attached to the technical department.

In the course of our activities, we detect difficulties on the RF components of our antennas. We would like to deepen these problems to find solutions through two major axes:

  •  RF performance;
  •  thermal dissipation of the components.

The idea of ​​the internship is to propose solutions to improve the overall system to integrate them in the future. 

You will benefit from practical training on antennas and antenna networks which will allow you to immerse yourself in the professional environment and its constraints.
This internship will allow you to explore 2 areas that are both complementary and very different: radiofrequencies and thermics. You will be able to build skills in different areas through the use of various tools:

  •  RF skills with the use of ADS – CST-HFSS
  •  skills from intensive use of Matlab / Simulink

You will gain autonomy thanks to work on a large 6-month project.

Your missions will be:

  •  Analyze each component of the RF chain to detect faults or possible improvements thereof
  •  Perform a noise analysis of the low noise amplifiers present in the RF module
  •  Perform thermal analysis of the RF module and make the finest modeling of its environment to optimize its use cases
  •  Make the state of the art of sensitive components to propose new solutions

Job requirements

You are the ideal candidate if:

  •  You are in 3rd year engineering school training or equivalent training mainly in electronics, radiocommunication and / or microwave or mainly thermal
  •  You know how to act independently and have the spirit of initiative
  •  You have excellent teamwork skills (you will need to surround yourself with several technical experts)
  •  You are rigorous.
  •  You are structured
  •  You are proactive
  •  You are looking for a rewarding experience in an international and innovative group
  •  You have a first experience in an electromagnetic simulation software such as ADS or HFSS / CST

You master the following areas:

  • – MATLAB imperatively

All our opportunities are open to people with disabilities.
