18-months Postdoc on GNSS Integrity Monitoring in the Rail Domain

ENAC proposes an 18 month postdoctoral research into the application of GNSS and GNSS integrity monitoring in the rail domain. The project ASTRail will focus initially on a knowledge transfer from the civil aviation domain to the rail domain with regards to requirements development and standardisation activities. Various GNSS-centric architectures will then be selected, analysed and tested in simulation to propose a solution for next generation train localisation and integrity monitoring. Automatic train operations are considered which will require both odometry (position of the train along the track) and train identification solutions using the new positioning technologies with the required and proven safety. The work followed in this contract will also cover a review of local environment modelling, in particular the multipath of the train and nearby structures. Multiple differential positioning systems and augmentation systems as implemented in civil aviation (SBAS, ABAS) will be considered and assessed for hazards.

The candidates should have a GNSS background and be familiar with civil aviation navigation standards.

To apply, please send your CV and cover letter to Dr. Carl Milner (milner[at]recherche.enac.fr) and/or Dr. Olivier Julien (ojulien[at]recherche.enac.fr).

Application deadline: 27 July 2017
