Closing Date: 13/04/2020
This role will see the successful candidate join the Systems Engineering team within the Integrated Mission Systems (IMS) business area, and take a prominent role in the development of our new framework architecture for the next generation of Electronic Warfare Operational Support (EWOS) products.
Our EWOS products allow customers to programme our EW sensor and countermeasure systems with mission-specific data, as well as providing comprehensive offline data analysis capabilities. Collectively the product suite allows our EW systems to identify and counter threats to the host aircraft, as well as providing an understanding of detected threat systems to further improve future mission effectiveness.
A role within the IMS Systems Engineering team will provide unique exposure to not only the EWOS products, but also a wide-variety of EW products and subject-matter experts, as well as the ability to interact directly with end-users to understand their operational needs and directly apply this knowledge to future product capability enhancements.
