    The assignment
     

    Robuuste data links over rotary joint verbindingen

     
    Bij het aanleggen van communicatie systemen in (militaire) voertuigen loopt men vaak tegen het probleem aan dat er ook communicatie tussen het voertuig en de koepel van het voertuig moet plaatsvinden. Omdat deze koepel 360 graden kan draaien heeft men hier een rotary joint verbinding voor. Deze rotary joints zijn echter storingsgevoelig en degraderen na verloop van tijd door slijtage en vervuiling. Hierdoor ontstaat vaak een onacceptabel hoog verlies aan data wat met name voor digitale spraak communicatie zeer hinderlijk tot onacceptabel is voor de gebruiker.
     
    De student dient een methode te ontwerpen voor het automatisch “real time” monitoren van de effectieve bandbreedte en de bit error rate over de rotary joint. De resultaten dienen te worden gebruikt voor het aansturen van een geschikte spraak codec (b.v. SPEEX/CELP/Vorbis/Opus/TAK gebaseerd) zodat een goede balans tussen spraak kwaliteit,benodigde bandbreedte en aanwezige stoorbronnen gemaakt wordt. De monitoring mag geen significante invloed hebben op de beschikbaar bandbreedte voor de data.
     
    Als onderdeel van de opdracht moet de student een model maken van de data verbinding over de rotary joint in termen van bandbreedte, Gaussische en niet Gaussich ruis (Transients en burst noise). Indien mogelijk moet dit model gevalideerd worden met metingen aan bestaande rotary joints. Dit model kan gebruikt worden voor een systematisch onderzoek naar de inzetbaarheid van verschillende spraak codecs.
     
      
    Affinity
     
    Networking, UDP/TCP-IP, Error correction, bandwidth management, ruisonderdrukking, spraak codering/decodering.

    Object classification in video 
     
    An important research direction for the coming years is to integrate video in the existing productlines. In a previous assignment a demonstrator on a high end sytem has been created to show detection and distance estimations of persons in real-time video. This assignment intends to extend this work by:
     
    • realizing a vehicle detection and classificaiton solution, and possibly a distance estimation;
    • using both visible and infra-red video sources;
    • integrate the results in an existing sensor integration framework and study (and possibly realize) the integration with other sensors (e.g. vibration sensors);
    • study the possibility to implement the solution on a processing platform of less processing power requirements.
     
    The assignment can be extended to two persons.

Thales Nederland is part of the Thales Group, which has a workforce of 68.000 in more than 50 countries making it one of Europe’s largest electronics companies.
     
    In Huizen the Business Units: SIX, Thales Transportation Systems and Cyber Security are represented.
     
    Thales SIX has a leading position on high qualified radio and network communication, command and control civil organisations. With approximately 200 colleagues Thales SIX develops, produces, installs and maintains both communication equipment and integrated communication systems.
     
    Thales Transportation Systems designs, develops and delivers equipment, systems, services and offers end-to-end solutions.  We help our clients to create more capacity within infrastructure, so passengers can reach their destination faster, safer, durable and cheaper.
     
    Thales Cyber Security offers integrated cyber security solutions to government and enterprises. We push cyber security technology forward to open doors. We team with our partners on three levels: challenging consultancy, smart solutions and always-on monitoring. The mission: the continuous assurance of performance, resilience and security of customers’ critical information systems.
     
    For these Business Units in Huizen we are looking for a  
     
    Contract Manager
     
     
    About the job
    As Contract Manager your primary objective will be to manage contractual relationships between Thales and its customers, partners and suppliers to:
     
    • optimise Thales’ profitability by minimising the contractual and financial risks associated with contract performance and by seeking commercial opportunities during the execution of a contract, and
    • protect Thales’ commercial position throughout the contract’s life cycle.
     
    Your activities will focus on the execution of a contract but you will also be involved in the pre-contractual phase. In the execution of a contract you will be part of the project team. Activities in a pre contractual phase will be allocated in the most efficient way between the legal counsel (whose activities are focused on the capture phase of a contract) and the contract manager.
     
    Within the Huizen organisation several colleagues employ contract management activities. You will support and guide those colleagues in order to ensure that the primary objective of contact management is achieved.
     
    To achieve the primary objective:
     
    • You will manage contractual obligations from capture phase to contract closure. This means that you will ensure that the contractual commitments undertaken by Thales are relevant and consistent and are clearly described and are well understood by those tasked with delivering them.
    • You will manage risks and opportunities linked to contractual obligations. You are required to contribute to improving profitability, and to protect Thales’ commercial position in the event of a significant contractual problem that could lead to a dispute with the customer, a partner or a subcontractor. For this a highly proactive attitude is required. 
    • You will manage and record information during project execution. Each exchange of correspondence with parties outside Thales (customer, partners, sub-contractors and suppliers) is potentially contractual in nature.
     
    About you
    You have a Master degree in Law and 4 to 5 years’ experience in a law firm or a international corporate environment. You are ready for a second step in your career.  You have technical, commercial and financial skills, and can properly deal with interpersonal relationships.
    Furthermore, you have a strong and independent personality, are solution-focused, and can set priorities. You are client-focused, have excellent negotiating skills and good command of, both oral and written, Dutch and English. Due to the nature of our projects a AIVD screening is part of the procedure.

    Secure hypervisors
     
    In the area of virtualization, many hypervisors exist in the commercial area (e.g. Hyper-V, XenServer, Vmware ESXi) and in open-source area (Xen, KVM).For these hypervisors, extensions are being developed which allow secure separation of virtual machines. Separately, specialized hypervisors are being developed (e.g. Sysgo PikeOS and Lynuxworks LynxSecure) which are called separation kernels, which have been built from the ground up to provide security separation.
    Thales is interested in investigating the current state of those fast-moving technologies, and evaluating whether they are applicable to the current Tacticos product and its future generation. The assignment will include development of one or more prototypes to support the evaluation.

    Thin client hardware
     
     
    Tacticos is a large and complex software-intensive system, and has been under continuous development for approximately 20 years. During that time, several evolutions of hardware and software infrastucture have been updated, while preserving the original application source code. The current generation of Tacticos applies a distributed thick client architecture.
    In the IT and consumer world, there is increasing interest in the use of thin client technologies, combined with virtualisation techniques, such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), remote rendering, VGX etc etc.
    Thales is interested in evaluating the use of thin client technologies in the Tacticos product. In the assignment, the evaluation of available technologies is required, based on Tacticos requirements, followed by building a prototype showing the integration of thin client hardware technology in Tacticos architecture.
