In the Field of Avionics Engineering
Electronic Defence Systems, a business area of Saab, is one of the world’s premier suppliers of solutions for surveillance, avionics and systems to detect, locate and protect against threat.
The Display and Reconnaissance Systems product area in Stockholm/Järfälla is responsible for developing and producing display and reconnaissance systems, notably for aircraft and helicopters. Operations include the development of hardware and software for displays, video management, graphics generation, sensor display, electronic mapping as well as display functions for radar and flight date information.
Your future challenge
Flight instrumentation for aircraft has had a rapid development over the past 20 years. With the introduction of flat panel displays, driven by the laptop industry and by development of graphics processors, almost all new aircraft have large flight information displays that present the information to the pilot in an efficient way.
The development of avionic display systems were introduced in the defense industry and soon became adopted by the commercial airliner business. The development has been characterized by large investments and moderate production volumes. Therefore the new avionics is comparatively expensive. When general aviation started to adopt the new technology, around the turn of the century, the products available to private aircraft owners are still relatively expensive, as compared to traditional mechanical instruments.
A huge number of private aircraft, equipped with traditional mechanical instrumentation are prohibited to migrate to electronic avionics, from an economical point of view. Not only are the available electronic flight displays still expensive, but it is also unrealistically expensive to remodel an entire cockpit panel to integrate the larger displays. To address this issue, the market sees a few new initiatives to supply general aviation with retrofit of old mechanical instruments to electronic counterparts.
Master thesis objective
The thesis has two main objectives.
1. To evaluate a one-to-one retrofit form factor of traditional mechanical instruments together with the idea of a ubiquitous electronic flight instrument.
2. To evaluate the suitability of the Intel Atom processor together with state of the art display element and data architecture as components in an avionics instrument.
The thesis is suitable for two persons, one focusing on the hardware implementation and one on software development. The system evaluation aspects can be analyzed in a joint effort.
Master of Science student, preferably in electronics or computer science. Knowledge in C/C++ programming language and/or electronics design. Knowledge in computer graphics (Open GL) is an advantage.
The role may involve work that includes military classified information, therefore Swedish citizenship is a requirement.
Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs. Saab has about 13,000 employees. Annual sales are EUR 2,5 billion. Research and development corresponds to about 20 percent of annual sales.
