Job description
The objective of this position is to support the development of the hybrid simulator whose architecture
corresponds to the one used for the CREME project, in particular to connect generic sensors
and actuators to the hybrid simulation bench already in place, and to master the entire associated
functional chain.
Concretely, the tasks will consist in choosing how to implement the interfacing of sensors/actuators
available between the OBC (on-board computer) and the host (the PC managing the simulation of
the space environment), and to document and facilitate the deployment of these sensors/actuators.
A good understanding of the flight software architecture will be necessary, as well as the communication
protocols used for this kind of systems (I2C, CAN bus…)
The person recruited will work in collaboration with the technical teams of the institute and one of
the challenges of the position is to ensure the sustainability of all this work for future projects of
nanosatellite platform.
