Internship Opportunity

Reference no: 2019.24

Location: Chippendale, NSW

Engineering areas: Aerospace/Aeronautical, Software, Machine Learning, Data Science

Business description:

We produce 21st Century space mission control software, using machine learning and gaming graphics to greatly reduce the challenge of operating spacecraft. We sell flight software and our operations centre services companies in the USA and Australia. Our customers include fortune 500 companies, NewSpace, military, and government satellite owners. We specialise in large constellations and fleet control (100+ satellite) and machine learning applications to space.

Our founders have world class flight heritage which includes large commercial spaceflight as well as microsatellites and CubeSats. Our operations experts include senior instructors from the US military space school and seasoned operators from USSTRATCOM. Two of our founders have PhDs from world class robotics laboratories.

Projects / tasks:

There are a wide range of machine learning tasks for space that interns can participate in. Prior interns worked on space weather analytics to fill gaps in critical data, orbital mechanics, the design of large 100+ constellations, and spacecraft design.

Technical skills

If the student can code we can teach them to do space: Orbital mechanics, spacecraft design, SATCOM, space physics. Students that can code and do space are high interest but preference is for C#/Unity coders. Interns wishing to go into the Machine Learning and Spacecraft Engineering streams should have a good knowledge of Python and/or C/C++.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

What we want:

  • Engineers, tinkerers, and builders.
  • People who are passionate about space.
  • People who are not afraid to make mistakes
