An opportunity has arisen for an experienced Modeller, to join our Seekers and Datalink Systems team, based at our Stevenage site. The role is to produce models of the seeker for a number of new seeker concepts/architectures. This includes representations of the seeker hardware, digital processing and target environment. You would become part of a team that is responsible for developing the model, producing auto-code, generating seeker performance predictions and interfacing the seeker model into the missile dynamic reference model. Part-time and flexible working will be considered.
What are we looking for?
Experience in developing complex models in Simulink (including embedded Matlab)
Experience in model verification, configuration control and model release process
Modelling for auto-coding
Aptitude for converting an algorithm into a Simulink model
Familiarity with Radar and Control Systems
Familiarity with Digital Signal Processing
Have a willingness to learn about the project, tools and methods
Demonstrate persistence to get the job done
Be able to work as a member of the team
An ability to build good working relationships with team members and other functions
Team Player with good communication and interpersonal skills
What’s in it for you?
An opportunity to be part of a successful team working at the forefront of technology, developing new and innovative concepts for future seekers. In addition to your core skills in modelling, you will have the opportunity to gain experience in RF and EO seeker technologies and system engineering design practices.
You will be involved in the design, development and proving of some of the key MBDA UK products. There will be opportunities for travel both within the UK and abroad in support of cross-functional working, seeker testing and trials.
A mixture of formal and on the job training will be available to introduce new concepts and build on existing skills and experience.
What would you get?
Competitive salary, flexible working, paid overtime (subject to level), a comprehensive pension scheme, employee funded voluntary private healthcare, sporting activities, fantastic site facilities, bonus schemes (subject to level), superb learning and development opportunities and more….
Modelling in Matlab and Simulink using model-based design techniques
Producing parts of a complex Seeker model including modelling the target scenario, seeker hardware and processor algorithms
Opportunity to develop and implement algorithms within the model
Producing and verifying auto-code for the software algorithms from the model
Carrying out seeker performance assessment
Producing a simpler representation of the model for use in the missile model
Documenting the model changes and creating test vectors
What’s great about the team?
Seeker Division within MBDA are responsible for undertaking the systems design, performance evaluation, integration, design verification and certification Seeker sub-systems and multi-mode seekers including a RF sub-mode. These activities provide a consistent systems engineering approach to all the stages of Seeker development from concept to in service support.
Seeker Systems Engineers provide the main technical focus for RF Seeker sub-system developments and interface with internal and external customers and suppliers on technical issues.
The design team have a proven track record in understanding and designing RF Seeker sub-systems to meet demanding customer needs and constantly develop new technologies aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our products.
