Area of 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 Graduate 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 join a dynamic and innovative team who will provide day-to-day guidance and on-the job training, introducing you to systems engineering processes, methods, technology and tools. You will also receive targeted training, developing the engineering skills and necessary domain knowledge required to achieve technical excellence and be a successful Systems Engineer.
