Laser Launch Tube – beam correction
Laser guide stars are required in modern astronomy to correct for the earth’s turbulent atmosphere and to capture detailed images of the universe. TNO works on the latest generation of high-power laser launch tubes, the equipment at the heart of the LGS system. You are asked to come up with a solution for unwanted laser beam shift.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines – Virtual Reality Travel Feasibility Research
FLY-R is a new division of KLM that offers various virtual products and services. This opens up a new market for KLM and prevents the growth of CO2 emissions through sustainable virtual memorable experiences. We create a sustainable and future proof travel addition to KLM’s product for new & current customers.
The Ultimate passenger Experience, the aircraft VIP Interior of the Future
Imagine you are a multimillionaire; how would your ideal air travel look like? What would the interior of your VIP aircraft look like? And in what manner would Jet Aviation make this environmentally sustainable? We are looking for creative engineers to help develop the optimal travel experience of the future – join the team and work with the international team of Jet Aviation in Basel on this challenge!
Blue Sky: Self-powered biosensors for aerospace applications
Circular economy is about keeping resources within the economy for as long as possible. During aircraft operations, events such as corrosion, contamination, leakage, may cause resources to be disposed of earlier than desired. Microorganisms are extremely good in sensing and we want to learn how we can harness those capabilities.
Assembly-in-Space is a current major topic in the Space industry as it opens possibilities to rethink the way satellites are designed and as a result make them more performant. This assignment looks at the overarching concepts but will also look at how on of the main subassemblies to enable this will have to be designed.
Investigation of new sustainable economic models on sustainable aviation
With the emergence of sustainable economics models (e.g. doughnut, degrowth, well-being), we may need to move beyond sustainability – i.e. circularity or regenerative designs. Further investigations are still needed to deepen our understanding of such model implementation in organizations or companies. Aircraft OEMs aim to identify how regenerative or circular mobility can be more effectively integrated into the industry.
Hydrogen-based Aircraft technology integration study
Collins Aerospace is challenging students at TU-Delft to determine the most promising configuration for a hydrogen-based short-medium range aircraft. This challenging task includes the design of the propulsion system and the fuel tank, and their positioning and involves many disciplines: fuel cells, combustion, aircraft and structural design… but could become a game-changer for future aircraft emissions.
A transversal approach to business
We ask students to use the existing capabilities at the cross-divisional site in Bremen to spin and ideate new products and services that at least create benefits and synergies in 2-3 of our divisions and business lines. This transversal approach is considered to find for instance space applications for aeronautical purposes, like e.g. space autonomy for flying platforms or aviation expertise for uav swarm solutions. The task is generally to identify qualities and skills among the portfolio of the AIRBUS site Bremen that can be an enabler for new products and services for at least 2 to 3 business lines and/or divisions.
