Role Title and Location: Servo Control Systems Design Engineer(Stevenage)

Job Ref No: P6730

Directorate: Operations

MBDA Level of role: Level 4

Reports to: Group Leader – Actuation Systems

The Opportunity

An opportunity has arisen in a forerunning Centre of Excellence, working in a dynamic multi-disciplinary organisation to develop and deliver actuation systems. These system critical products can range from the simple to the highly complex and include the following:

*

Fin actuation systems

*

Gimbals systems

*

Reaction control systems, for example thrust vector control (TVC) systems, Divert Attitude and Control Systems (DACS)

*

Control surface deployment mechanisms

The Role

*

The successful candidate will be involved with both R&D programmes and major development contracts, where they will be required to represent the team at design reviews and work directly for the project leaders who are your primary customers.

*

The successful candidate will take responsibility for actuation servo control systems design and performance modelling, generation of control algorithms and conduction of model validation testing on hardware, therefore, this role suits an individual who is interested in the theoretical aspects of the job, has an understanding of real world effects and has knowledge gained through hardware experimentation.

What’s in it for you?

*

Working in a multi-disciplinary team

*

Opportunities to research and introduce new technology

*

Develop skills in control modelling, design and test

*

Hands-on working with high performance hardware

*

Increase experience in working across multiple engineering disciplines and departments

*

Opportunity to travel and develop language skills on multi-national programmes

*

Significant interaction with external suppliers, both current and potential new suppliers

*

Potential future opportunities to lead a multidiscipline development team

What’s great about the team?

*

Dynamic multi-disciplinary team contributing all the skills and knowhow to fully develop, test, prove and validate world class actuation systems.

*

Multi-national dimension due to Centre of Excellence status.

*

One of the few groups with full responsibility for the design and delivery of equipment.

*

Growing team to meet business needs across UK and France.

What are we looking for?

*

Ideally degree qualified in relevant discipline (Engineering Council approved and post graduate MSc desirable).

*

Typically our modern systems are electromechanical so a working knowledge of electrical machines, electrical position sensors and microprocessors would be advantageous.

*

Industrial experience with technical responsibility for the development of discrete feedback controllers.

*

Experience in systems modelling including mechanical, electro-mechanical & electrical systems.

*

Experience in Matlab/Simulink.

*

Good understanding of motor design principles.

*

Working knowledge of digital signal controller micro-processors.

*

A solid academic and practical understanding of classical and modern control theory.

*

Ability to communicate and influence at all levels of the hierarchy through presentations, verbally and via written reports.

*

Ability to plan and achieve the delivery of tasks to schedule.

What would you get?

*

Competitive salaries, flexible working, paid overtime (subject to level), a comprehensive pension scheme, an employee funded voluntary private healthcare scheme, sporting activities, fantastic site facilities, bonus schemes (subject to level) and superb learning and development opportunities.
