Engineer (f/m) Aerospace or similar, Exploitation of Galileo / GNSS Space Service Volume (NAV-NME) for the German Trainee Programme (GTP)
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Here, 8000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation.
Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent
minds - particularly more females - at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.
For our German Trainee Programme (GTP) in cooperation with ESTEC in Noordwijk, Netherlands, we wish to recruit a qualified
Engineer Aerospace or similar
Exploitation of Galileo / GNSS Space Service Volume (NAV-NME)
Have you (almost) completed your degree studies? Are you inspired by space exploration and keen to pursue a career in this exciting field? If so, perhaps you
should take a closer look at the German Trainee Programme. Organised by DLR, it offers you the chance to work shoulder to shoulder with experts from the 22
member states of ESA - keeping your finger on the pulse of Europe's space programmes. Over a period up to 24 months, you will actively contribute to the latest
research and/or technology projects. This is complemented by a generous scholarship. What better way to launch your career in international space business?
The next GTP commences on 1st February 2019.
You will work in the Galileo System Engineering Unit (NAV-NME), part of the Galileo System Procurement Service in the Galileo Programme Department, responsible
for the design, development and validation of the Galileo Satellite Navigation System (Space, Ground and User Segments).
You will support us to investigate how the Galileo signals and the provided services could be exploited to contribute to the success of future space missions.
In doing so you will deepen your knowledge about the Galileo System. This could be a unique opportunity in your career path. The System team maintains a great
overall view on all Galileo aspects!
In cooperation with colleagues from the Technical Directorate you will help us carry out System studies to expand the Galileo Service Volume to Space - for Low
Earth Orbit up to Lunar missions - and contribute to the definition of corresponding System concepts and architecture studies.
An important aspect of your work will be to investigate also aspects of interoperability with other GNSS and spacecraft navigation means. Our team is putting
effort on this at international level, i.e. through UN-International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG). Your work contribution will directly
reflect into such international collaborations with other GNSS partners and providers.
You will support us in identifying, trading-off, specifying and prototyping the needed technologies on the space receiver side as well as on Galileo System side.
In doing so you will make use of the available Galileo first generation infrastructure (i.e. FOC satellites) and shape together with us the future Galileo System
while interacting with the Galileo Evolution teams.
sound knowledge of GNSS and GNSS Receiver Technologies
knowledge of AOCS system & Sensors
familiar with System Analysis Tools such as MATLAB and AGI’s Systems Tool Kit
awareness of the aspects of GNSS interoperability, challenges of the Space Environment
proactive working attitude and open mind to learn many new things
