This role exists for a Systems Engineer interested in contributing to systems engineering activities alongside the UK MoD Air Weapons Advisory Committees (AWAC) for over 50 years. You will be working on studies and problems having the responsibility for carrying out risk analysis across three distinct engineering disciplines: Aircraft Self Damage (ASD), Aircraft Weapon Ballistics (AWB) and Thermal Effects on Airborne Conventional Armament Stores and Equipment (TEACASE). This analysis supports and underpins air platform safety advice issued by Defence Ordnance Safety Group (DOSG) covering the UK inventory of air platforms and weapons.
Our client is responsible for developing, delivering, supporting and exploiting the analytical methods, empirical models and software tools (verified and approved by DOSG and the AWAC) that are used to generate all aspects of safety advice.
The DOORS team are in an exciting phase of growth which includes existing and new UK platforms and platforms and weapons of foreign air arms. These opportunities are based upon an approved, robust and evolving suite of analysis tools exploiting innovative analysis approaches and numerical techniques. This position of technical excellence is underpinned by a commensurately robust contractual position which requires us to significantly extend our existing team.
To that end, we are seeking talented individuals who can firstly support the delivery of existing and emerging analysis tasks and potentially grow into positions of key responsibility supporting the broader development of the AWAC business domain through strategic technical planning and leadership.
Required skills, qualifications and experience [
" AWAC development and advice tasks are costed and delivered within a robust systems engineering framework. It is essential that successful candidates understand and have experience of a software focussed systems engineering lifecycle and the corresponding tools, techniques and artefacts underpinning delivery of certified product.
" The design, development, test and exploitation of mathematical models used to predict the dynamic behaviour of systems including air platforms, weapons, rounds and fragmentation.
" The ownership and delivery of complete tasks from requirements elicitation and proposal development, through data capture, model setup and exploitation, results analysis and reporting.
Desired skills, qualifications and experience
" The development and use of aerodynamic data in the model based characterisation of air system dynamic behaviour
" Awareness of the role and implications of different numerical techniques in the model based prediction of air system dynamics
" Monte-Carlo modelling approaches and the corresponding derivation of statistical confidence levels for derived predictions would be useful.
" Characterisation of warhead fragmentation
