The PhD study is co-supervised by 2 institutions: ENAC and IRI-CSIC:

ENAC (Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile) is the French Civil Aviation School, based in Toulouse. It provides numerous higher education programs ranging from Bachelor to Master of Science, Aviation Advanced Master, Master of Business and Administration as well as Ph.D.s in the domains of aeronautics and aviation. The SIGNAV (Signal Processing for Navigation) research group of ENAC has a worldwide recognized technical and operational expertise in all fields and systems (current and under development) related to the use of GNSS by civil aviation: SBAS, GBAS, ABAS (RAIM, AAIM, ARAIM). The SIGNAV research group has developed a strong expertise regarding land applications requiring a navigation platform with a high quality of service for safety, liability or financial reasons. The SIGNAV research group is also strongly involved in the development of low-cost precise positioning platforms for urban environments. The SIGNAV research group has published over 150 papers, supervised over 27 PhD students and cooperated in more than 70 expertise contracts since its creation in 1993.

IRI (Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial) is a Joint Research Center of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). The Institute has three main objectives: to promote fundamental research in Robotics and Applied Informatics, to cooperate with the community in industrial technological projects, and to offer scientific education through graduate courses.


Qualifications: Master degree in electrical engineering
Experience: Experience with GNSS or SLAM technique is a plus.
