Axient is currently seeking an Intern in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Research and development Integrated Space Experiments (RISE) contract. RISE supports the objectives of the AFRL Integrated Experiments and Evaluation Division, including several Small and CubeSat flight experiments, and the Navigation Technology Satellite – 3 (NTS-3) mission. Opportunity is located at Kirtland AFB, NM.
The intern will directly support the NTS-3 team’s research involving the Air Force’s Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Return Link Message (RLM). Hoping to expand the RLM’s functionality, this research is supporting this work and the NTS-3 satellite will be used as an example testbed in an optimal GEO orbit. Will use modeling and simulation tools to analyze the military utility of the spacecraft and various satellite navigation architectures in order to advance the research and development effort and determine the best technology transition path. Additional topics of study may include ground test/technology demonstration campaign planning and on-orbit experiment planning to validate system capabilities modeled in the laboratory.
This will be a part-time effort, currently planned to extend through May 2022 with the option to extend as needed and/or approved.
Previous experience with and/or familiarity with orbit determination
Previous experience with and/or familiarity with signal processing
