We are looking for an engineer with experience of developing architectures at a system or sub-system level and creating/managing system requirements, to apply their knowledge to the development of a world-leading multispectral integrated sensing suite for a next-generation combat aircraft.
Experience of working with multispectral sensors and / or technologies will be required to allow consideration of capability, performance, and successful interoperability at a system level. The role inherently requires a strong aptitude for problem solving and an ability to understand complex interdependencies, encompassing various degrees of uncertainty and managing requirements and design inputs from multiple stakeholder groups.
The candidate will join a Systems Engineering team, and a wider Integrated Project Team, which encompasses subject-matter experts across a wide-variety of domains and subjects; support and guidance will be available to support the role. Technical design decisions are underwritten by the project Chief Engineer, although the candidate will be expected to develop novel ideas and approaches, as well as candidate solutions with sound rationale.
WHAT YOU’LL GET
UK First Capability: Ability to work on a programme providing new capabilities to UK platforms enabling the UK to keep pace with an ever-evolving EW environment.
EW Expertise: Leonardo has subject-matter experts with extensive and detailed knowledge of the EW domain; technology, performance, and operational capabilities – the learning potential is limitless!
Continuous Learning: Whether it’s EW, engineering lifecycle processes, leadership, or personal development, you’ll be supported in your ongoing professional development though training and mentoring.
Teamwork: You will work alongside like-minded professional engineers in a highly collaborative environment.
Connections: You will be joining an expansive team of around 7,000 people at six major sites across the UK.
EW Heritage: We are proud of our rich heritage in Electronic Warfare (EW); over 100 years of EW history. Today we’re providing the latest advances in radio frequency technology and you can be part of the next 100 year legacy.
