Are you looking for a summer internship where you can acquire valuable experience by being a part of the journey to create a world unique “Globe in 3D” based on satellite imagery? Would you like to learn and develop your skills while working with cutting edge technology together with highly competent colleagues in a global context?

Maxar Intelligence is currently looking for summer interns to join the R&D center in Linköping.​

What you’ll do day-to-day (with your colleagues):

The summer internship aims to manually produce ground-truth data, which later on will be used to assess the quality of the Maxar 3D products.

At Maxar Intelligence, we have created our own or purchased surveyed GCPs (Ground Control Points). You will use the data available about these to manually match where they are located in our model of the world. The annotation (Image Chip) you create will consist of a 2D-3D correspondence and an appearance (a small image). The 3D point is the GCP’s 3D coordinate and the 2D point is your detection of that point.

You will be using an internally developed tool for this. Improvements of the tool may be done/needed. You will also have the opportunity to survey new GCPs with highly accurate GNSS-methods and be involved in the full process for generating ground truth.

Who you are

To be successful at Maxar Intelligence you need to be a team player and enjoy cooperating with others. For this internship you should be interested in detail and be meticulous.

Preferred qualifications

• Master of science student
• Interest for details, meticulous
• Interest for GIS, HMI, GNSS, geodesy and/or statistics.
• Programming skills (C, C++, Python, Excel)
