System integration

Within the Research & Development department we have the System Design & Integration (SD&I)-group. SD&I works on the translation of astronomical requirements into technical requirements. This is important in developing modern, advanced telescopes.

When we develop new techniques, SD&I will integrate and verify these on different levels in the system. SD&I will test the new system on both astronomical and technical demands. During the testing of such a new system there is a lot of interaction between the SD&I group en designers of other departments.

The SD&I group consists of researchers, postdocs, instruments engineers, and commissioning engineers.

Scientific software engineer

The work at ASTRON fits perfectly with my studies Scientific Computing at the interface between physics, mathematics and computer science. I work, among other things, on the mathematics to perform faster calculations on physical and astronomical super computers. This allows the astronomers to perform their calculations more efficient. The location of the ASTRON headquarters amazing! […]
