BAE Systems Applied Intelligence - London

Launch your Career into Space with BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

At BAE Systems Applied Intelligence we develop world-class radio and data systems. We are launching a major new space programme, marrying our existing capabilities with new space technology.

We need skilled, enthusiastic and motivated people at all experience levels from graduate to CTO to deliver these exciting new capabilities. There are opportunities in all relevant engineering and non-engineering disciplines, both for those with space industry experience and those without.

Many roles come with opportunities for remote / hybrid working, working in our offices in Guildford and Great Baddow only when required.

We will provide you with personal development, CPD including support towards professional recognition, industry-leading benefits, and the opportunity to apply cutting-edge technology to interesting problems with the support of our highly-skilled engineering community.

Come and join us for this exciting opportunity to shape and deliver world-class space technologies.

What you will be doing (role duties and responsibilities)

We’d like to hear from people who have experience in some or all of the following areas that we cover (Space experience is desirable but not essential as long as you are keen to learn):

  • RF PCB development: We design RF circuit boards ranging from low power embedded sensors through to high performance designs covering a wide range of communication bands from VHF through to millimetre wave systems. This development may involve modelling (eg using Matlab, Agilent ADS, CST, Spice etc) as well as schematic capture and RF circuit board layout.
  • Digital, mixed signal and power PCB development: We develop a wide range of boards such as state-of-the art digital signal processing platforms incorporating space hardened FPGAs, SoCs and processors; boards to interface to external sensors and systems (eg optical sensors, electromechanical systems, optical comms lasers etc ) often incorporating high speed data interconnects.
  • Mechanical design and system integration: We design enclosures to incorporate our PCBs and other subsystems. The designs have to be easily assembled and provide for cooling and protection in challenging environments. This work often involves environmental and compliance testing.
  • System engineering: Most of our solutions comprise of a blend of hardware, firmware and software. Early in the development lifecycle you will be involved in the design activity responsible for partitioning the functionality in to these domains taking into account the requirements and constraints.

In addition to the engineering tasks outlined above, and depending on the level of seniority, additional tasks may include:

  • Client interaction to understand and influence requirements, deliver solutions and be involved in bidding for new work.
  • Development team lead, including mentoring junior engineering staff.
  • Research and monitoring of developments in relevant technology to maintain and enhance our leading-edge capability.

The main emphasis of this role is the implementation and delivery of hardware solutions; advice and support from senior technical specialists is expected to be provided, particularly in the early stages of design.

What we are looking for (skills and experience)

We are looking for ambitious, high-calibre people with the following characteristics:

  • Highly motivated with a strong academic background typically in Engineering or Physics.
  • A keen interest in the space sector and awareness of latest industry developments.
  • Understanding of the principles of PCB circuit design and layout.
  • Understanding of the principles of mechanical design. Experience with 3D CAD would be an advantage, but is not essential.
  • Proven record of set-to-work and verification of complex hardware, sometimes under demanding project timescales; able to fault find and debug problems in a logical and thorough manner.
  • Competent in the use of laboratory measurement equipment (eg oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers, vector network analysers etc).
  • Experience in the use of software and firmware development tools and environments, e.g. Python, C/C++, Linux, particularly as needed to support hardware test and debug.
  • Comfortable working on multiple projects at the same time and in a dynamic environment where deadlines and priorities are changeable.
  • Experience of working within multi-disciplinary development teams in a project-based environment.
  • Good inter-personal skills; able to work well in a dynamic, collaborative team.
  • Experience of designing products for real world use outside a lab (Space experience desirable but not essential).
  • Experience of designing products for environmental and compliance testing and knowledge of the relevant standards.
