Duration:12 Months
The optical communications team within Airbus' Central Research and Technology (CTO) delivers cutting edge research in Free Space Optical Communication (FSOC).
Over the years, the team has demonstrated ground-breaking technologies to establish high-speed communications links (1+ Gbps) with aircraft in flight using laser beams.
The team is currently recruiting for a 1 year fixed term, full-time intern to support existing activities in research and development. The successful candidate will be working on challenging optical communications research projects.
The work will include (but not be limited to) the calculation of link budgets, working on research prototypes and attending field trials with drone mounted optical communication systems.
Tasks & accountabilities
You will work closely with team members across a variety of projects and topics as required and be expected to contribute to technical analysis, discussions, reports, and demonstrations.
Whilst a good understanding of optical communications is expected, it is understood that many of the topics within the scope of research at Airbus are innovative and therefore support from our experts will be provided.

The selected intern will be given the opportunity to become the team's pilot for a DJI Matrice 600 multi-copter UAV. Travel may sometimes be required to take part in lab tests and field experiments.
