Job Description:

Do you love technical challenges? Are you interested in combining knowledge of image generation, sensor physics, aircraft operation and artificial intelligence? Do you want to join a team working on the future of aviation?

Get on board! Take control of the aircraft and of your career by joining the Modelling and Simulation team in Systems Engineering!

We provide real-time simulation of the complete aircraft and its operational environment for design engineers, test engineers, suppliers and pilots. We bring our expertise in software/hardware development, in aircraft knowledge and in environmental modelling to provide state-of-the-art simulation. Whether for troubleshooting the in-service aircraft, building the iron bird or prototyping the cockpit of the future, we offer tailored solutions to all aircraft programs. Join our dynamic, close-knit community, with links extending across the Airbus Group, to get a grip on the complete aircraft. Our multicultural team spirit, creative mindset and virtual aircraft will ensure that you never experience a dull moment!

Role Description:

You will join the Modelling and Simulation Department. As a synthetic imagery & sensor simulation specialist, you will manage and integrate COTS IG solutions within real-time simulation products that simulate multi-spectral sensors and the physical world in which they operate such as airport infrastructure, ground / air traffic movements, ATC communications and weather.

Your main activities will be to:

  • Benchmark synthetic image generator (IG) solutions for multi-spectral sensor simulation,

  • Select, configure and integrate COTS IG solutions including terrain databases and 3D object animation scenarios (ground equipment movements, airport air traffic) in support of artificial intelligence machine learning "training" and V&V,

  • Ensure products performance and representativeness,

  • Provide technical support to our customers.

Within this position, you will:

  • Work on image based aircraft functions contributing to critical systems such as Flight Controls, Autopilot, Navigation systems and general safety of flight, and thus develop multi-system competencies.

  • Acquire a global picture of Design Office, Flight Tests and Training activities on all programs inside AIRBUS.

You will deal with:

  • Design Offices from different sites (France, Great Britain, Spain and Germany),

  • Ground Test Means and flight test teams,

  • IG tools and database suppliers

Skills and experience

You are curious, you want to learn and to evolve in a dynamic team.

You love technical challenges and you want to work with different partners, in a multicultural environment, to enrich your aircraft knowledge.

Technical Skills:

  • Software knowledge: Linux, C & python.

  • Applied computer science to be able to handle different information and build virtual aircraft.

  • Good knowledge of optical, IR and RF sensor image generation and synthetic environment simulation tools.

  • General understanding of visual database development.

  • General understanding of Aircraft operation and airport terminal operation.

  • A working level of English is needed.

This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company's success, reputation and sustainable growth.
