Internship position opportunity at SpacePNT who is a leading Swiss company based in Neuchâtel.
Electronics Engineer for Scientific Instruments in Space.
The Aerospace Electronics and Instruments Laboratory (AEIL) of the Institute of Geophysics at ETH Zurich has successfully developed the sensor electronics for ESA LISA Pathfinder mission and NASA InSight mission. AEIL will contribute the Gravitational Reference Sensor Electronics to LISA, the upcoming large ESA mission to detect gravitational waves. For this new challenging project, we are seeking a young and highly motivated Electronics Engineer for Scientific Instruments in Space.
The Space Debris Training Course will be hosted at the ESA Academy‘s Training & Learning Centre in ESEC, Redu, Belgium, from 16 to 20 April 2018. University students will be provided with an introduction to the concept of space debris, why it is necessary to address this problem, and how the mitigation policies set by ESA apply to missions.
ESA has opened a competition for a design that will ornament the fairing of the Soyuz rocket carrying the satellite CHEOPS.
The fairing is the outer housing that protects the satellite against the extreme pressure and heat experienced as it punches through Earth’s atmosphere. Those fairings are produced in Switzerland by the company RUAG Space.
CHEOPS is an ESA satellite mission to study Exo-planets.
