In fast changing markets, customers worldwide rely on Thales. Thales is a business where brilliant people from all over the world come together to share ideas and inspire each other. In aerospace, transportation, defence, security and space, our architects design innovative solutions that make our tomorrow's possible.
In the Netherlands, where 2100 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ). Together with an extensive ecosystem of knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cyber security solutions, transportation systems, communication equipment for land forces, cryogenic cooling solutions and research & development for radar tech (in collaboration with TU Delft).
Information about the department:
Sensor management is the software department that is responsible to monitor and control the radars. This includes a broad range of functions like waveform transmission scheduling and hardware control. Our team consists of 8 software engineers and 2 or 3 internship or graduation students.
About the assignment
Most of our radar control software components follow an object oriented design. Examples of the software components are motor drive control, transmission task schedulers and EtherCAT network management. As the functional programming paradigm gains more and more attention we are interested how we can apply this in our radars. The goal of this assignment is to explore the possibilities, selecting and evaluating functional languages and demonstrate it by rewriting software components in a functional language.
