Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Kontron CIFRE

This contract, ended in April 2015, provided partial support for the PhD thesis of Mohamed Bergach. It was extended until the end of September with a direct collaborative contrat funded by Kontron until the PhD defense [16]

The topic is to study how to efficiently implement various sizes of the FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) algorithm on multicore and GP-GPU architectures from the range of processors used at Kontron, in order to understand in a second phase how to best allocate several such algorithms in parallel, as part of a single application, in the most efficient way (regarding performance but also power consumption and thermal constraints).

Airbus CIFRE

This contract, started on March 2014, provides full support for the PhD thesis of Cristian Maxim. The thesis concerns the statistical timing analysis while different variability factors are taken into account. This method is built on top of existing statistical approaches while proving appropriate programs for training these methods and thus learning from the history of the execution.

CNES/Airbus DS

Financing comes here through the CNES R&T programme, which has partly funded the post-doctorate of Raul Gorcitz (Sep 2013-Aug 2015) and the acquisition of an industry-grade evaluation platform based on TTEthernet and VxWorks 653.

The objective of our collaboration with Airbus Defence and Space and the CNES is to determine how the design and implementation of embedded software and system/network configuration can be largely automated in an aerospace context, while preserving an assurance level superior to that of the Ariane 5 flight program. We are exploring the novel algorithms developed and implemented in the Lopht tool.
