Internships at the ACT
Currently Open Internship Projects
Signal processing techniques in QFT09 Oct 2019
Signal processing techniques in QFT09 Oct 2019 The goal of this internship would be to extend the analysis to general motions (e.g. circular for a finite amount of time), and provide a numerical tool for a general 3+1D trajectory.
Neural information retrieval09 Oct 2019
Neural information retrieval09 Oct 2019 The goal of this internship is to explore the potential of neural information retrieval related to the missions and activities of ESA with a particular focus on the innovative projects and outcomes generated by the ACT and the application of this to the analysis of the novelty level of new ideas.
Consequences of the maximum principle in General Relativity09 Oct 2019 The goal of this project is to analyze the optimal motion of a rocket in different black hole spacetimes and see if the optimal control point of view offers a new way to look at the geometry of spacetime in General Relativity.
Autonomous exploration of a planetary system in the context of a robotic interstellar mission09 Oct 2019 The goal of this project is to design, and prove the feasibility of a concept for the autonomous exploration of an unknown planetary system, in the context of a robotic interstellar mission.
A league for space based optimization problems09 Oct 2019 During this internship a number of optimization problems will be created. Their fitness landscape will be analysed and possible solutions be proposed.
A 6DOF G&CNET for aggressive quadcopter racing09 Oct 2019 Building on previous work by the ACT and TU Delft, the goal of this project is to investigate the feasibility and efficiency a Deep Neural Network trained on the optimal controls of a 6DOF quadrotor model.
To apply to these opportunities, please follow the standard ESA application process and make sure to mention explicitly you would like to work for the Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) and for what internship project.
