Developing system requirements and design concepts for advanced digital RF systems
Systems Engineering, RF, digital, FPGA, DSP, embedded software systems, Matlab, Simulink, DOORS
6 months minimum
A fantastic opportunity to contribute to the development of market-leading product development, providing advanced capability and protection to UK platforms. You will apply and develop your knowledge of systems engineering in a fast-paced and dynamic agile development team, working with subject-matter experts with extensive and detailed knowledge of the EW domain, technology, performance, and operational capabilities.
You will have extensive experience of
Full lifecycle systems engineering, with a key focus on creating multi-level requirements and developing effective verification and validation plans
Developing system-level design concepts and working alongside implementation teams to realise effective design solutions
Strong aptitude for problem solving, as well as managing potentially conflicting inputs from multiple stakeholder groups.
What you will do
Define system requirements and influence architectures for an advanced digital receiver system.
Work closely with RF and digital design specialist teams to inform system design concepts.
Develop digital receiver system design concepts and perform analyses of candidate solutions.
Use modelling to evaluate concept designs, perform trade-off studies, and evaluate results.
Present key findings and recommendations to stakeholder groups.
Develop detailed system and subsystem specifications to inform / guide implementation teams.
Develop integration and test plans / procedures to assess system design compliance.
Perform system verification to evaluate system performance within synthetic and live environments.
Produce evidence to demonstrate system compliance with design and requirements specifications.
Attend technical meetings and workshops with customers and industry partners.
What we're looking for
Experience with digital receivers and/or software defined radios.
Knowledge of (some/all): RF, digital, FPGA, DSP, embedded software systems.
Experience in the use of mathematical modelling tools (e.g. MATLAB and Simulink).
High proficiency in requirements generation and management using IBM DOORS.
Skilled in writing and interpreting requirements specifications and designing test procedures.
Good understanding of design compliance and acceptance criteria relating to requirements and architecture sign-off at varying stages of maturity.
Strong understanding of systems engineering principles across the development lifecycle.
Awareness of agile development methodologies - Self-motivated with an aptitude for problem solving and driving difficult issues to conclusion.
Ability to cope with a high degree of design complexity and significant levels of uncertainty.
Excellent verbal and written communication / collaboration skills.
Experience of working with a variety of internal and external stakeholders of varying seniorities.
It would be nice if you had:
Knowledge of model-based design and auto-coding from models.
Proficiency with SysML modelling tools (e.g. Cameo Systems Modeler, MagicDraw).
Experience working with configuration management tools (e.g. Azure, Git).
Understanding of passive / active EW surveillance and detection systems, including methods for detection, measurement, and identification.
