Three PhD students at CNES JC2 2023… and a prize for TéSA!

TéSA was magnificently represented at the CNES JC2: Gastón de Boni Rovella explained to us with all his pedagogy and humor the workings of channel coding and his innovative approach using machine learning, Evelyne Akopyan brilliantly highlighted the issues of his PhD subject around resilient networks in nanosatellite swarms but it was Hamish McPhee (the third starting from the left) who won a prize by succeeding in making us understand the delicate problem of clock synchronization in nanosatellite swarms ! Well done to all three!

TéSA Scientific Seminar

Stefano Fortunati, IPSA professor and researcher at L2S in Paris Saclay, was invited for one month at TéSA by the Scientific Committee. Coming from mid-June to mid-July, he worked with TéSA researchers and presented us with a seminar on Massive MIMO Radar for Target Detection.

TéSA PhD poster session

Taking advantage of the presence of guest professors in TéSA (Stefano Fortunati, Sinan Yıldırım), the TéSA doctoral students organized an afternoon “poster session” to present their subjects to everyone… The Shannon room at TéSA was very full and many discussions took place!

TéSA Scientific Day

The TéSA Scientific Day (JS TéSA) took place in June in the calm of a hotel in the Toulouse suburbs. Around forty participants took part in this day rich in presentations and discussions: doctoral students, post-docs, research engineers from TéSA, teacher-researchers from partner schools and engineers from partner members, all were there to reflect together on the topics of research to come! Thank you to CNES, TAS and Collins Aerospace for sharing their current issues with us through very beautiful presentations!

TéSA Scientific Seminar

Abderrahim Halimi, professor at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, who came to spend a few days at TéSA, presented us with a seminar on Statistical-based Robust and Scalable Computational Methods For Extreme 3D Lidar Imaging

24H of INSA Lyon

Evelyne Akopyan, TéSA PhD student, finished 2nd at the 24h of INSA Lyon, with the T-shirt TéSA: well done!

Galaxie Club

TéSA is very proud to be now part of the Galaxie club. The promise of great exchanges and discussions around space to come!

Launching the TTT!

TéSA is launching TéSA Topic Tuesdays (TTT): every two weeks, we meet around pizza for lunch and a doctoral student (or other volunteer) takes the opportunity to talk to us informally about their research topic.
