A second-year student at Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA will be starting a truly stellar internship in May to work on two ground-based electronic scanning antennas for communication with Thingsat, a Cesug* space instrument launched into orbit on January 13 from Cape Canaveral.
Thingsat retrieves data from connected devices located in oceans, deserts, polar regions, and other remote areas far from traditional communications networks. It monitors climate, keeps an eye on sensitive ecosystems, and detects natural hazards.
Three other students majoring in integrated electronic systems completed internships in 2020 and 2021, prior to the Thingsat launch.
These internships give students a unique opportunity to learn about the space industry and add valuable experience to their résumés.
