Interested in space and stuff? PHL-Microsat needs someone like you

Ever thought of joining NASA? It’s time to make those childhood astronaut dreams come true bit by bit, then.

PHL-Microsat has recently opened its search for students interested in helping out in data processing, archiving and distribution. For the future milestones of PHL-Microsat, its DPAD (Data Processing, Archiving, and Distribution) Sub-system has addressed their need for more passionate people to be included in their hardworking bunch. Good news is they’ve decided to invite more from the youth: Five student assistants to be exact.

To score a slot in the team, you must currently be a student of Geodetic Engineering, Geography, or other relevant fields–students will surely be able to take their skills to the next level with this stint. It would matter a lot if you’re knowledgeable in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing, and are able to write technical documentation since you’ll be keeping track of tons of details. So yes, you must be detail-oriented at that, and can communicate well enough. Being organized, trustworthy, and reliable would also do wonders for this job.

Want to know how you can ace your application? If you know your way around Python, MATLAB, Java, or JavaScript, it’s guaranteed that you’ll be given plus points.

If you get in, you’ll be able to assist in the processing of Diwata-1 and Diwata-2 images, the development of the DPAD sub-system, and also have your take in the overall work evaluation. All of these come together for their vision to “build, launch, and effectively utilize microsatellite technology for multispectral, high precision earth observation.”

PHL-Microsat lately had one of its successes this year, when the Philippine-made microsatellite Diwata-2 was launched in outer space. Quite a risky feat, but it’s been more than worth it. If you want to be a part of PHL-Microsat’s upcoming successes in space and more, submit your CV now to [email protected] as they will only accept applications until the 25th of November. We’re all excited for what’s heading the way of Filipino space tech, and it would be more interesting to have young minds work on the way.
