Guidance Control and Navigation Engineer
A Systems Engineer with experience of flight dynamics, guidance and control is required for a long term contract assignment in Bristol.
Support the design, development and test of Mid-Course Guidance, Homing Guidance, Control and Navigation algorithms for missile applications. - Analysis of closed-loop model simulations.- Analysis of sub-system and system trials/firing data. - Generate/maintain justification documentation. - Prepare and present material at Design Reviews. Work with Systems, Simulation & Modelling and Software Engineers to support the validation and verification process, particularly in terms of algorithm integration and test in the 6-DoF Performance Model and generation of Embedded Software through auto coding via the Mathworks toolset.
Skills and Knowledge: - Practical experience of modelling flight dynamics (essential) - Practical experience of Matlab / Simulink (essential) - Practical experience of developing Guidance, Control & Navigation systems (preferable) e.g. Guidance Laws, Estimators/Observers, Kalman Filters, Autopilots, Optimal Control, Multivariable Control, H-infinity, Mu-analysis, Integrated Navigation - Trajectory optimisation (preferable) - Knowledge of sensors (preferable) e.g. Accelerometers, Gyros, Inertial Measurement Units, GPS, RF and IR Seekers. - Knowledge of actuation systems in relation to autopilot design (preferable) - Experience of delivering on a product development programme (preferable).
