MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver for a more secure tomorrow

Up to £60k DOE + Excellent Benefits + Bonus + Hybrid working

MBDA is the leading European supplier of Missiles and Missile Systems. Our Actuation Systems group specialises in the design and development of missile actuation systems.

An opportunity has arisen to join this dynamic team as a Senior Motor Control Systems Engineer, leading the design, development and validation of embedded control systems across a range of actuator products.

The Role

The Senior Motor Control Systems Engineer will work collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary design team, owning the design, development and proving of control algorithms and ensuring that Customer performance requirements are successfully met. Responsibilities will include:-
  • Development of control algorithms for both analogue and digital systems, typically in the control of BLDC motors.
  • Modelling of systems and performance analysis of the selected control algorithm.
  • Derivation of sub-system requirements (mechanical, electronics, software).
  • Identification of suitable electro-mechanical components (electric motors and feedback sensors) working co-operatively with suppliers where needed.
  • Definition of design proving plans, design proving testing and subsequent data analysis.

What are we looking for?

Essential Skills:-
  • Design and development of control algorithms for digital control systems.
  • Experienced user of the MATLAB / Simulink toolset and Embedded Coder for the generation of control algorithms ready for deployment within systems. Ideally direct experience in the control of BLDC motors.
  • Ability to model complex real world electronic and mechanical systems such as feedback sensors, motors, drivetrains and drive electronics.
  • Strong communication skills with the ability to communicate within internal and external design communities at all levels.

Desirable Skills:-
  • Ability to generate sub-system or component requirements from a set of customer requirements in support of system architecture development.
  • Knowledge of electric motors and drive / commutation strategies e.g. Field Oriented Control (FOC) or Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) techniques.
  • Understanding of DO-178C or DO-331 standards and the code generation processes specified.

What's in it for you?
  • You will sit at the core of a multi-functional design team with the opportunity to influence the complete System architecture including Electronics, Mechanical and Software design disciplines to ensure the needs of the control system design are met.
  • You will experience product development across the full product lifecycle taking a design from initial concept or technology development through qualification activities and into production.
  • You will work across multi-national teams on projects for customers across our partner nations.
  • Opportunities to lead research and development task packages, shaping our future products and practices.

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.
