Internship Opportunity

Reference no: 2020.42

Location: Chippendale, NSW

Engineering areas: Aerospace/Aeronautical, Mechatronics, Software, Machine Learning, Data Science

Business description:

We produce 21st Century space mission control software, using machine learning and gaming graphics to greatly reduce the challenge of operating spacecraft. We sell flight software and our operations centre services companies in the USA and Australia. Our customers include fortune 500 companies, NewSpace, military, and government satellite owners. We specialise in large constellations and fleet control (100+ satellite) and machine learning applications to space.

We have a Defence Innovation Hub contract to develop an intelligent data fusion network to process a large number of space objects. This is a Phase II project which combines machine learning with our heritage space operations capability for the RAAF.

Projects / tasks:

There are a wide range of machine learning tasks for space that interns can participate in. Prior interns worked on space weather analytics to fill gaps in critical data, orbital mechanics, the design of large 100+ constellations, and spacecraft design.

Technical skills

If the student can code we can teach them to do space: Orbital mechanics, spacecraft design, SATCOM, space physics. Students that can code and do space are high interest but preference is for C#/Unity coders. Interns wishing to go into the Machine Learning and Spacecraft Engineering streams should have a good knowledge of Python and/or C/C++.

Software Development Requirements: Python and/or C/C#, git, Linux environments.  Preferred but not essential: Cloud architectures and development, databases, microservices.  Engineering, Computer Science/Software Engineering, any degree with strong maths and programming skills is welcome.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

What we want:

  • Engineers, tinkerers, and builders.
  • People who are passionate about space.
  • People who are not afraid to make mistakes
