Space is a part of the daily work at RUAG Space.  We manufacture space products that are used in almost all satellites and rockets serving the world wide space industry and global needs.

With our products, we contribute to sustainable development for people, the earth and its prosperity.


At RUAG Space we work in teams and have close collaboration in projects. We care about the balance between work and leisure through our flexible working conditions.


RUAG Space is part of the international RUAG group which is active in the fields of Aerospace and Defence and employs more than 9,000 employees worldwide.

We are Europe's largest, independent supplier to the aerospace industry. In Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, Finland, Germany and in the USA we develop, produce and test subsystems and components for Space applications.

Heritage, flexibility and outstanding reliability make RUAG Space the partner of choice for producers of satellites and the launch services industry all over the world.



RUAG Space is currently developing the next generation Space Computer hardware. It is characterized by the use of commercial components, significantly higher performance (an order of magnitude) and modern operating systems.

We would like to showcase this hardware using a (visually) appealing demonstration for conventions/exhibitions. The focus should be to have a demonstration that attracts visitors to a booth.

RUAG have today both a Power PC based computer and an ARM based computer under developmnet. Either one can be used for this implementation.



Thesis description

  • The first task is to define what to implement where you as students will have a large amount of freedom
  • The demo could be in the field of artificial intelligence, steering a robot with help of different sensors and/or cameras, image processing and recognition or any other compelling application
  • The core is an application software demonstrating the performance, but additional HW may be needed (bought/designed)
  • The next task is to design the solution and finally implement it


The work is a master of science thesis project of 30 credit points and the duration is 20 weeks for two students.

Starting time is as soon as possible in agreement with the student.



Your profile
Student within Master of Science in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or similar.
