Work at Aerospacelab

Data Correction – Master/PhD Maths-Physics-Computer Vision

Description

Louvain-la-Neuve

Full-time

Duties

The Data Correction team enables the generation of accurate and interoperable products from Aerospacelab satellites. The work of image processing is performed at scale over petabytes of data.

This position will focus on developing algorithms to perform the calibration of the images (medium resolution, very high resolution, multispectral, …) taking into account a set of parameters from the sensor, the satellite state, the atmospheric perturbation, etc.

As a senior role, you will be also involved in the development and implementation of the quality metrics.

Key activities

  • Perform ongoing space imaging operations, geometric calibration activities and performance characterization,
  • Designing automated scalable processes to calibrate hundreds to satellites to ensure that our products meet and exceed specifications and SLAs,
  • Collaborate within a cross functional team to develop performance models, error budgets and calibration concepts for new very high resolution constellation,
  • Collaborate within a cross functional team to develop performance models, error budgets and calibration concepts for new medium resolution & multispectral constellation,
  • Collaborate within a cross functional team to develop performance models, error budgets and calibration concepts for new SAR constellation,
  • Troubleshooting geometric image quality issues and developing long-term mitigations and fixes.

 

Must have

  • Master or PhD’s degree photogrammetry, engineering, physics, or math, relevant to geometric characterization of space imaging platforms,
  • Minimum of 3 years of experience with statistical processing and analysis techniques of large sets of measurement data,
  • Experience with image processing methods and basic machine learning principles,
  • Understanding of end-to-end image processing chain – from sensor electronics and image ancillary data to geometric characterization,
  • A passion for Programming, Photography, Remote Sensing, Earth Sciences, and Geography,
  • Experience leveraging scientific computing using Python in a Unix/Linux environment,
  • Practical experience in solving problems by exploiting large cloud-based datasets.

 

Must have (senior)

  • Minimum of 5 years of experience with statistical processing and analysis techniques of large sets of measurement data,
  • Extensive experience leveraging scientific computing using Python in a Unix/Linux environment.

 

Nice to have

  • Hands on experience with calibrating and operating very high resolution optical, medium resolution & multispectral, or/and SAR satellites,
  • Familiarity with design and construction of imaging/capture/camera hardware,
  • Experience writing software automation of analysis of imagery/map,
  • Experience writing production code in C/C++,
  • Knowledge of how to scale code with cloud computing resources, e.g. AWS or GCP,
  • PhD in a relevant scientific/engineering field.

Why work at Aerospacelab?

You will work on satellites that will fly before your retirement. Be part of the « new space » industry and its challenges. Surround yourself with smart and innovative people. No dumb managers, no stupid tools to use. Take a lot of responsibility if you can handle.
