At DLR’s Institute of Communications and Navigation (KN), reliable navigation systems are being developed for safety-critical applications that will enable the automatic landing or precision approach of aircraft and drones as well as the reliable operation of automated vehicles and trains in the future.
Satellite navigation technology (GPS and Galileo, or in general GNSS) is an essential component together withmodern augmentation systems, such as Advanced Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring ( ARAIM).
In order to enable safe operations, the proper functioning of satellite navigation systems (especially Galileo) must be analyzed and verified. Errors have to be characterized and appropriate integrity concepts for robust positioning (such as Advanced RAIM) have to be developed.
High accurate satellite navigation concepts and solutions such as Real Time Kinematic (RTK) or Precise Point Positioning (PPP) are required for the operation of automated vehicles and drones. However, new integrity concepts for these algorithms still need to be developed for their use in safety-critical applications.
Is this field of research of your interest? Then come to work with us on the next generation of satellite navigation systems. Bring your scientific skills, your commitment and your team-oriented spirit to the research area outlined above. Furthermore, you will represent our new integrity concepts in international expert and standardization groups and take the lead in national and international projects in cooperation with our research teams and partners.
Based on your knowledge and experience, you will contribute to the continuous expansion of the institute’s expertise. You are characterized by your enthusiasm for science, your creative drive and your skills in dealing with our employees and project partners from a wide range of nations. You will take advantage of opportunities for further training in the scientific and project management fields and can draw on our broad range of educational opportunities.
This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation.
