Mathematical Modeller (Algorithm Development)

A unique opportunity to be involved in developing state-of-the-art airborne electronic sensor systems for the most advanced fighter aircraft ever to be made.

You will work with novel product development and emerging technologies that have been supported by multi-million pound annual investment in research and development.

This project will push the boundaries of innovation, technology, and the ingenuity of our engineering community to bring about a step change in performance and capability of our airborne electronic sensor systems.

You will be involved in UK-wide collaboration across multiple business areas including, Electronic Warfare, Radar Systems, and Communication Systems

You will be supporting the future needs of our customer and working closely with them will be vital to ensure that our solutions meet their required future operational capability

Key responsibilities:

  • Definition of requirements for control of the elements of sensor systems and central processing of sensor data.

  • Perform systems functional analysis and refine architectures of complex multi-sensor and controller systems.

  • Development of algorithms for data fusion and innovative processing methods.

  • Liaise with sensors and communications technical specialist teams to design mechanisms for control of the elements of the System, and interoperability of sub-systems.

  • Perform analysis and modelling to demonstrate the effectiveness of algorithms and control mechanisms.

Skills and knowledge required:

  • Proficiency in the use of mathematical modelling tools such as MATLAB and Simulink.

  • Experience in mathematical modelling of RF, EO / IR sensor and communication systems.

  • Strong numerical and analytical ability.

  • Ability to cope with design complexity and uncertainty.

  • Knowledge of EW technology, performance, operational capabilities, and use (DAS, EO/IR, Radar, Comms)

You'll be supported in your ongoing professional development though training and mentoring. For more information, apply now!
