Job Details

MBDA Missile Systems - Together. For the Future of Defence.
Guidance, Control and Navigation Graduate Engineer
The Guidance, Control and Navigation (GCN) department plays a pivotal role in the concept and life of all MBDA products. We work on high complexity weapon systems and understand how the various subsystems interact and have a direct influence on design decisions. The algorithms we design lie at the heart of the missile system.
We host 4 areas of expertise:
Guidance - figuring out a suitable trajectory, meeting customer requirements and system constraints, providing an effective route to target interception and improving the probability of success;

Control - maintaining stable flight while following the guidance demands to drive the missile onto the trajectory calculated by the guidance algorithms;

Navigation - estimating the current missile state (position, velocity and attitude/orientation) using measurements from a range of on-board sensors;

Command and Control (C2) - the component of the weapon system that interacts with the human operator. It presents the context of the mission and calculates the most effective method of engagement against threats.

What's the opportunity?

You will join a supportive and experienced team of engineers who will encourage and help you to develop skills including coding and modelling, mathematics, dynamics and control theory, utilising tools such as MATLAB/SIMULINK daily.

Work alongside other departments to increase your knowledge on the complexities of a missile, including propulsion, aerodynamics, seekers, sensors and actuators.

Broaden your technical knowledge of the design and function of a complex weapon system and have visibility of a wide range of work, from feasibility studies through to current high-profile projects.

Experience work within one of the many international teams in MBDA, with the GCN function in Paris and Rome! This doesn't always equate to travel but you may be offered the option where the opportunity arises.

  • Integrated navigation, such as 'Terrain Reference Navigation', and 'GPS integration';
  • Guidance algorithm design and evaluation for all phases of missile flight;
  • Autopilot and control system design and analysis;
  • Data fusion to combine data from multiple sensors;
  • Support to concept and feasibility studies;
  • Internal Research and Development to support future weapons and technology demonstrators;
  • Implementing neural networks and deep learning techniques to help solve a range of complex problems;
  • Our work is mostly MATLAB/Simulink focused which is used daily.

Entry Criteria, Salary and Benefits
  • Degree qualified (minimum 2.2) in Aeronautical engineering, Aerospace, Mathematics, Physics, Control and Systems or a related subject
  • Basic programming/coding knowledge e.g. MATLAB, C, Python.
  • £30,000 starting salary plus £3,000 joining bonus
  • Pension Scheme
  • Access to range of employee discounts including Dining and Lifestyle discounts subsidised gym membership and more
