At DLR we are developing miniaturized communication terminals that operate at optical wavelengths. These terminals have many advantages over the traditional radiofrequency systems: higher data rates, miniaturization, security, few regulations, …
One of our newest developments is the project CubeISL. It is based on past projects that are currently operating in space, like OSIRIS4CubeSat. Its main goal is transferring the technology of laser communications from direct-to-Earth (Space to ground) towards intersatellite links between two CubeSats. On CubeISL we are currently testing the first design iteration. The purpose of this test is to verify the functionality and quantify the performance of each subsystem (mechanical, optical, electronical, software, and their interfaces). Once this is finished, we will proceed to integrate and qualify the CubeSats that will fly to space in 2024.
What would your task be in CubeISL?
Your working student position will consist on assisting the CubeISL team, especially in the Lab, with any test that is to be performed. This position offers a unique opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary environment, develop and work with hardware that will fly to space, and help establish the new state-of-the-art in optical communications with CubeSats.
Of course, we don’t expect you to come with all the necessary knowledge to build an optical-communication CubeSat. But with time, we would like you to be motivated to learn and assist as much as possible during the integration, testing, and qualification process.
Some of the tasks that you would be doing are:
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 unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
