Airbus R&T in the wing perimeter has focused a lot in the past years on the structural and industrial aspects, resulting in the Wing of Tomorrow concepts and ground prototypes.
eXtra performance WING, an Airbus UpNext demonstrator, is using disruptive wing technologies focusing on wing performance and need acceleration or feasibility demonstration. Our purpose is to fly a remote controlled business jet, flying subsonic, at classical Airbus aircraft altitudes, with a scaled wing heavily instrumented.
The opportunity of a Active Control Laws Specialist has risen within the team eXtra performance WING. It consists of a fixed-term contract on an estimated 1 year and a half long project, based in Toulouse.
You will work within the Overall Systems Design team, and your responsibilities will be:
Support the definition of new active control laws, such as:
Maneuver Loads Alleviation and Gust Loads Alleviation of the wing
Active Flutter Control
Loads Protected Aircraft
Contribute to the definition of the systems interfaces and monitoring linked to the active control laws
Implementation of the new active control laws on the flight control and data fusion computers. For this the candidate should be able to use specification tools such as Matlab Simulink.
Validation of the new active control laws through various tools and models (mainly OCASIME)
Contribution to the Permit to Fly dossier preparation.
Validation and verification of the new active control laws during flight tests.
Your Boarding Pass:
At least 10 years experience in the Flight controls laws development as well as validation and verification of the software
Knowledge of the overall flight control system.
Able to take initiatives to propose simpler and efficient ways of working
Autonomy, Adaptability, Availability, Accountability
Enjoying working in an international, diverse and geographically located team
Sharing the values of transparency, courage, humility, empathy
English is mandatory
