At DLR Simulation and Software Technology, we are working with domain specific languages to optimize the complex task of developing onboard software for space missions. This way, the collaboration between different engineering disciplines (e.g propulsion, guidance, command and data handling, etc.) can be eased.
The project you will be working on has the goal of conducting several quantum-optical experiments in microgravity on-top of a sounding rocket.
You will design an interpreter based on an implemented domain specific language which will execute individual sequences of the experiment and optimize their runtime behaviour. Your task includes an investigation into current interpreter technologies and software engineering techniques. In addition, you will receive a deep insight into ongoing sounding rocket projects at our department. The results you gain from analysing the requirements will help produce a prototype which can be tested on real flight hardware in future missions. The scientific fields you will be working are model-based software engineering and programming languages. The outcome of your thesis will be a reliability and performance analysis of your solution in comparison to currently used software.
The thesis can be supervised in English or German.
