Software Engineer required to support the Aircrew Training Simulation Systems (ATSS) Software Development Team currently developing simulation products in support of aircrew training for fast jet aircraft. Utilising Agile Development Processes and Techniques, the work will typically involve production of software designs and code through to integration testing and support, developing simulations written in Ada and C++. We are seeing an engineer who has knowledge of high fidelity generic radar simulation design principles both MSCAN and ESCAN.

Specifically implementing high fidelity RADAR principles requiring specialist RADAR theory knowledge and ideally simulation knowledge of mechanically scanned and electronically scanned. As a result of Customer Preliminary Design Review (PDR) higher fidelity requirements have emerged over original requirements, therefore existing capability needs to be expanded. The team is required to support at the same time documentation review and analysis and develop a simulation strategy for higher fidelity EScan requirements for UK and is a role supporting the aircraft development teams.

AT THE COAL FACE TASKS / RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Test products sufficiently to ensure minimal, or ideally no re-work is required due to incorrect implementation.
  • Investigate and resolve problems raised during integration and formal acceptance.
  • Ensure that source information, advice and validation is provided from the aircraft subject matter experts during all stages of development.
  • Ensure a good working knowledge of Software Development Plan (SDP), Software Test Plan (STP) and other documents within the Aircrew Training Simulation Systems.
  • Ensure that a good working knowledge of ATSS - related deliverables is maintained and that an awareness of customer issues is also maintained.
  • Participate in continuous process improvement.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

  • ADA, C, C++ High Level Language Full Lifecycle programming skills.
  • UML, Artisan or similar software design tools / methodologies.
  • Requirements capture and traceability tools/techniques.
  • Knowledge of Software Development environments e.g. GPS (GNAT), Visual Studio.
