Student Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or similar: Development of an anomalous satellite signal generator

Your mission:

Anomalous satellite signals can have a very unfavorable impact on the GNSS receiver performance. For safety of life applications like autonomous driving and air traffic, it is especially critical since the resulting errors might lead to potentially hazardous or even life threatening situations. In the Institute for Communications and Navigation we are developing algorithms to detect signal anomalies and to suppress them adequately.

In order to test the performance of the developed algorithms, we are looking for a student to study and expand an existing anomalous signal generator and potentially work on the development of satellite signal error modeling and detection 

Your qualifications:

  • Student in Computer Science/Electrical Engineering or similar
  • Experience in digital signal processing required
  • Experience in VHDL, C++ and Matlab programming required
  • Experience with satellite navigation systems advantageous
  • English proficiency

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
