Job description

Syrlinks designs and manufactures location beacons using the Argos system. The Argos system is set to evolve in a few years with a significant increase in the constellation allowing IOT use with bi-directional communication.

In order to speed up and simplify the development of our Argos products, we need a quick and easy method of testing the performance of our transmit beacons.

In this context, the objectives of the internship are to develop a Python application allowing ARGOS 2, 3, 4 demodulation on an SDR basis, to determine the characteristic parameters of the modulation and to decode the useful information contained in the ARGOS messages.

Missions of the internship:

  •     Study of the ARGOS system and associated modulations
  •     Study of existing Python SDR code
  •     Study of the existing Scilab / Matlab code
  •     SDR performance analysis and evaluation to determine characteristic modulation parameters
  •     SDR selection, porting and demodulation development under Python
  •     Decoding of useful information from the message
  •     Performance and stability validation of the demodulator
  •     Writing a user guide
  •     Drafting of the internship report

Required Profile

You are at the end of the Engineering School cycle in the Telecom / Electronics field.

Motivated, curious, rigorous, interested in the subject and you have a good foundation in digital electronics and signal processing, this internship is for you.

Knowledge of the Python language is strongly recommended.
