The Institute of Space Systems in Bremen designs and analyzes future spacecraft and space missions (launchers, orbital and exploration systems, and satellites), and assesses them with regard to their technical performance and cost. It applies state-of-the-art methods of multi-disciplinary engineering in system design and analysis – for example, a computerized system for concurrent design. The Guidance, Navigation and Control Systems Department focuses on the capability to analyze, design, develop, implement, simulate, test, and verify attitude and orbit control systems (AOCS) / guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) systems for space applications and their components. This involves a range of disciplines, including requirements management, systems engineering, algorithm development, software implementation, systems analysis/simulation/verification, and hardware-in-the-loop testing. The GNC Systems Department is also conducting research and development of promising and strategic technologies for AOCS and GNC systems.
The GNC Systems Department is involved into the Mission to the Moon of PTScientists, the first European Moon landing mission, as an official partner. The mission objective is to be the first private company to safely land a spacecraft on the Moon, to explore the area around the Apollo 17 landing site with two rovers, and to send pictures and videos down to Earth. In the frame of this project, the GNC Systems Department leads the development of the GNC subsystem as scientific partner. The work comprises the development of optical navigation technologies, the controller synthesis for descent and soft landing, the optimization of the landing trajectory as well as the comprehensive verification of all associated elements.
Within this context, we are looking for scientific staff members to conduct the following tasks within the Navigation Research Group:
