Arnaud Dion

Updated :

Research engineer at ISAE (formerly SUPAERO), the French Aerospace Engineering Institute, since 2004. My projects and topics of interests include electronic architecture design, hardware-software codesign, atellite navigation algorithms and systems. While working as an engineer, I obtained my Ph.D in 2014 from ISAE.

My research takes place in the Critical Systems Engineering (IpSC) team.

 Research activities

My fields of interest cover the design System-On-Chip for Signal Processing algorithms. So I work on 2 domains : signal processing, mathematics and digital component architectures. What is the adequation between the algorithm and the architecture ? Sometimes, if the algorithm doesn’t fit (mainly time performance), we can change the architecture. And sometimes, we can do the reverse : modify the algorithm to take full advantage of the architecture.


Some previous projects
  • Navette
  • TASTE. Funded by European Space Agency (ESA). With [**Thales Alenia Space*] and [**M3Systems*].
  • REPCO. Funded by Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA), French Armament Agency. With [**France Développement Conseil*].
  • Vector tracking algorithm in degradated environment. Funded by Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), French space agency. With [**M3Systems*].
  • Reconfigurable navigation receiver for space applications.
