MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver For A More Secure Tomorrow

The Command and Control (C2) system is at the heart of the weapon system. The C2 helps the Operator to understand the complex battlespace and identify the threats. In response to the Operator's request for engagements, the C2 plans the optimal engagement solution, taking into consideration a number complex and ever-changing constraints. The C2 then initiates the missile firings, and maintains communication with the missile in flight to manage engagement through to its conclusion.

As a Systems Design Engineer you'll support product development of C2 systems for a range of domestic and export customers. Day to day you'll be supporting the definition of the C2 software design and architecture, defining requirements, managing certification documentation for the products, and investigating customer queries. We deliver processing units, consoles with user interfaces, safety control equipment and supporting equipment for system maintenance, logging, data analysis and training.

Working in the C2 domain in MBDA provides an excellent opportunity to interact with all areas of the company and to see the full product development life-cycle. Our systems are fundamental to the Operator's user experience and deliver real capability to the customers.

What we're looking for
  • Systems design / systems engineering experience in software or electronics
  • Degree level qualification (or equivalent experience)

Here's what's in it for you
  • Excellent opportunity to develop and diversify your skills and access a range of career paths
  • Work on flagship programmes backed by significant investment from our customers, and technology built on huge research investment by MBDA
  • Access to training opportunities, both on the job and formal courses

Join a great team!

We're an innovative team creating new products and achieving ever more challenging requirements.

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.
