Offers for Theses in the Group

Development and Integration of Algorithms for Scientific Satellites

The Laboratory for Rapid Space Missions at the Origins Cluster of Excellence focuses on the development of scientific instruments for compact satellite platforms, called CubeSats. These nanosatellites enable the fast and modular deployment of complete, autonomous satellite systems at low cost. 

Our research includes detectors to measure antimatter flux in low orbits, where scientific success relies on finding suitable algorithms and hardware platforms to filter and classify particle events. In addition, satellite-based science oftentimes requires precise determination of pointing direction, for which we are developing our own star tracker. We offer opportunities in the fields of data processing, machine learning and hardware design, which could include the following tasks:

  • Simulation and modeling of particle fluxes
  • Data processing for our antimatter detector, including neural networks, particle filters, and conventional classification approaches
  • Image processing and optical engineering for attitude determination with our star tracker
  • Identification of suitable hardware architectures and integration of your own software
  • Work with VHDL, TensorFlow, Python, Zemax, Geant4, Altium Designer

What we expect from you:

  • Capability for independent and self-reliant work
  • Motivation, creativity and general interest in data processing and machine learning
  • Hands-on mentality and ability to work in a small, interdisciplinary team
  • Experience in one or more of the above-mentioned programming languages appreciated

Are you interested in working in an exciting and challenging environment with state-of-the-art technologies? Let’s have a talk!
