MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver For A More Secure Tomorrow

An opportunity has arisen for an engineer to exploit their safety, reliability and system engineering skills to influence the safety and reliability aspects of technically sophisticated and exciting products. For safety, this will involve optimising the effort devoted to safety assurance, with the goal of balancing safety against the inherently lethal attributes required of complex weapon systems.  For reliability, ensuring optimum effort is devoted to progressive reliability assurance, with the goal of ensuring the delivery of a lean but effective reliability programme.

The Role

By understanding the system and its operating context, the safety and reliability engineer will decide what type of evidence will most cost-effectively show that the identified hazards or reliability risks have been mitigated to the customer’s satisfaction, using a range of techniques and approaches. This role is about balancing time and cost constraints to ensure that a convincing safety case and/or reliability case, comprising of appropriate evidence, is constructed.

What are we looking for?
  • Thorough understanding and experience of how the hazard analysis and safety evaluation processes integrate with the system engineering process
  • Ability to deliver supporting information (Safety Case Reports, Hazard Analysis, Functional Failure Analysis, FTA, FMECA, reliability prediction, etc).
  • Fully appreciates that reliability is not just a number, and has experience of reliability planning, analysis and testing during development.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of, and experience in, the application of UK and International system engineering processes. 
  • Good knowledge of complex electronic systems and the associated safety and reliability issues (but other engineering subject areas, such as design, software, manufacture, etc, will be considered for candidates with the right strengths in other areas).
  • Track record as an effective teammate with strong interpersonal and influencing skills and the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary / multi-national team.
  • Analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Good verbal, written communications analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Ideally degree qualified or equivalent

Company

MBDA, a world leader in missiles and missile systems, is a multi-national group with 10,000 employees working across France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Spain and the United States. It has three major aeronautical and defence shareholders - Airbus Group (37.5%), BAE Systems (37.5%) and Finmeccanica (25%) - and is the first truly integrated European defence company. In 2013, the Group recorded a turnover of 2.8 billion euros, produced about 3,000 missiles and added 4 billion euros of new orders to the order book which now stands at 10.8 billion euros. MBDA works with over 90 armed forces worldwide.

MBDA was created in December 2001, after the merger of the main missile producers in France, Italy and the UK. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success. The restructuring of the industry in Europe was completed with the acquisition of the German subsidiary EADS/LFK in March 2006. This further enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the industry.

MBDA is the only Group capable of designing and producing missiles and missile systems to meet the whole range of current and future operational requirements for the three armed forces (army, navy, air force). Overall, the Group offers a range of 45 products in service and another 15 in development.

The Group has demonstrated its ability to bring together the best skills across the whole of Europe and as a result has been chosen to lead a series of strategic multi-national programmes. These include the six-nation Meteor air superiority weapon, the Franco-British conventionally armed cruise missile, Storm Shadow/SCALP, and a family of air defence systems based on the Aster missile for France and Italy (for ground and naval based air defence) and for the UK (naval air defence for the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers).

The mastery of cutting-edge technologies is not only an advantage for MBDA in successfully developing and producing new products. It is also a means of guaranteeing customers that innovations can be made to existing products during their life span in order to meet constantly changing specifications arising from increasingly complex engagement scenarios. It is precisely this combination which makes MBDA the defence sector partner of choice in many countries around the world.
