We would also be keen to see people with a knowledge of Electronic Warfare Operational Support (EWOS) processes, and organisations;
  • EW tactics and techniques;
  • RF System Design;
  • Air Defence & Radar Systems;
  • Weapon System Planning tools and environments;
  • Platform integration;
  • MOD organisations, especially those that relate to EW and Weapon Systems.
  • System Architecting and system development

Our Business:

We respect new perspectives and experiences, and we value our collaborative ways of working. We are committed to growing and supporting diversity in our workforce and ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their potential.
