A great opportunity for an ADIRS new technology development & integration engineer has just open within Airbus Commercial Aircraft entity in Toulouse.
Airbus is working on a new and exciting challenge for Airbus and Aeronautic in general: “The more autonomous aircraft”
It is at least as significant as the introduction of electrical flight control and flight with two pilots on previous decennium.
It will necessitate the use of new technologies, development of new function with new competencies, new way of working and new methodology.
Our contribution for this more autonomous aircraft project is to develop the future navigation system.
It is a significant step in term of technology and the way to combine them to increase navigation system performance and availability.
New sensors like camera, radar, laser… need to be added and integrated with the current sensors (GPS, inertial, accelerometer, air data sensors…) to build the future navigation system.
New functions and algorithms need to be developed using recent methodology (data fusion, machine learning, big data…)
We want to set up also new ways of working with more digital features, with more model based engineering and simulation for development.
In this context we are looking for an engineer who wants to participate to this challenging project and who can provide his hybridization/ integration experience for these technologies.
The ADIRS provides mandatory information to the avionic systems and the pilot to navigate and fly the aircraft (altitude, speed, position, heading and aircraft attitude) based on temperature, barometric, anemometric and inertial measurement.
The system is classified as a critical system with a high safety level.
The system is composed of
In the frame of engineering / ADIRS system organization in Toulouse, the job owner will be in charge, with the Research & Development team, of the definition, the development and integration of the new technologies in the future navigation architecture.
With the R&D team, the job owner will be in charge of:
The job owner will have also to explore new digital/ big data technologies in order to improve aircraft in service event analysis, improve aircraft maintenance, propose new services to airline, develop new features for future aircraft and improve efficiency of the development.
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.
You will have the following skills and experience:
