Internship – Blind learning of satellite signals

Company Details

As a high-tech industrial Group operating on all continents, Safran is a key player in the propulsion and aerospace equipment, space and defense sectors.

Job description

Safran Data Systems designs, manufactures, distributes and operates high-tech products. You will be part of the Space & Communication entity.
Safran Data Systems markets a multi-mission satellite reception modem capable of demodulating and decoding telemetry signals from several hundred different satellites. For this, the user must program a large number of parameters, modulation, bit rate, frame format, etc. for each of the satellites. It is quite frequent that the users do not know or badly the meaning of certain parameters, and that errors lead to the endangering of the programs.

The objective of the internship is to implement a system making it possible to recognize the characteristics of the received signal thanks to deep learning, statistical estimation or other methods, in order to facilitate the programming of the equipment.
The internship consists in implementing algorithms for the automatic detection of satellite telemetry waveforms.

Your missions will be:

  • – Bibliographic research, and theoretical study
  • – Performance simulation of different algorithms in Python, including some existing algorithms
  • – Implementation of the chosen algorithms
  • – Test and validation on target
  • – Suggested areas for improvement at the end of the internship

Job requirements

You are the ideal candidate if:

  • – You are in 3rd year engineering school training or equivalent training
  • – You know how to act independently and have the spirit of initiative
  • – You are endowed with a spirit of synthesis
  • – You are rigorous.
  • – You are organized
  • – You are looking for a rewarding experience in an international and innovative group
  • – You master signal processing.

All our opportunities are open to people with disabilities.
