Area of Responsibilities

Engineering

Responsibilities

  • Systems Engineers are involved in all aspects of design and development; from initial product design through to in-service support.
  • They look at the big picture, determine how the system needs to operate and collaborate to produce the required overall operational behaviours. They also dive into the deepest level of detail – taking the system piece-by-piece and defining its design to the finest point. Our Systems Engineers can also actively engage in R&D, developing new concepts and conducting fundamental research into our future technologies.
  • As a Summer Placement Systems Engineer, you will work on real engineering problems within either the Radar or the Advanced Targeting business area. You will have the opportunity to be involved in supporting a wide range of tasks across multiple projects/products, such as:
  • The radar for the Typhoon fighter jet
  • The radar for the SAAB Gripen fighter
  • Our family of Surveillance AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radars
  • An IRCM (Infra-Red Counter Measures) system
  • Our laser target designator or laser ranging systems
  • Core activities within Systems Engineering include:
  • Requirements capture, design documentation, verification and validation.
  • Algorithm design and test.
  • Performance modelling; building physics-based models to test our designs through computer simulation.
  • Data analysis; end-to-end systems analysis using synthetic and ‘real world’ data.
  • Applied research; from product improvements to blue-sky thinking.
  • You will work with an experienced engineer who will provide day-to-day guidance and on-the-job training. You will be introduced to systems engineering processes, methods, technology and tools, with particular emphasis placed on learning practical skills that may not be easily gained or experienced in the academic environment of a university.
