About the company: 

Founded in Vancouver, Canada, Bluvec Technologies Inc. is the pioneer developer of Deep Signal Inspection (DSI) technology and a leading supplier of counter-drone technology in the industry.

The company's R&D team is gathered from the world's leading institutions, including multiple senior information security, network security, and wireless experts, with 30% of R&D team members owning Ph.D. degrees and master's degrees accounting for 60%.

Our company uses self-researched and developed DSI (Deep Signal Inspection) technology to provide world-class Counter Drone solutions.  The DSI technology is designed to detect, identify, localize, defend and manage civilian drones, covering 98% of currently available drone types, and is widely used in government agencies, defense military, aviation airports, prisons, stadiums, industrial facilities, etc.

Describe the project.: 

The project is about GPS spoofing, which is a known technique for altering the flight paths of unauthorized drones. The outcome of this project is to extend the current state-of-the-art for GPS; as well as supporting the other major GNSS systems (BeiDou, Galileo, and GLONASS). The intern will develope software that runs on an SDR platform, and will assist and direct the testing of his/her solutions in real-world scenarios. He/she will be expected to read and understand detailed system specifications, design and model subsystems, and implement them in an appropriate programming language.

Required expertise/skills: 

The intern should have expertise in Matlab modelling, C++ and Python programming, RF propagation theory, and wireless communication protocols.
