Someone who is a technical "dooer", they must be hands on, comfortable to do modelling and analytical research and problem solving, be involved in trials, and solution design, although they will not be taking a product through to development. who will be or will become an SME in this niche. They will not be taking a lead on things managing anything but will be applying a deep technical knowledge to solve problems, share knowledge and develop a specialist capability within a select group of engineers in the business.

Our use-case is quite unique, so we do not expect anyone even at the higher levels to have done exactly what this role will do in the past, so we are looking someone who is happy to be molded and adaptable a little to our specific application of their radar knowledge, even if they are already very experienced in the domain in other similar applications.

This is not a hardware focused role, we are not looking for someone to deliver a system to a customer or into production, this is more analytical, modelling, data and R&D focused role. Also people who talk about radar systems integration (E.g.taking an existing radar and integrating it with a new platform or system that interprets radar data) are not what we are looking for.

This role is about understanding the physics of radar/RF an how a radar system interprets the radar return signals it is seeing and how that can potentially be reduced. Someone who understands or appreciates non-cooperative target recognition (NCTR) and/or the radar/RF aspects of low observable/stealth technology.


  • A strong mathematical background with, or the ability to rapidly gain, an understanding of Information Theory
  • An understanding of computational radar signature modelling and techniques for the extraction of signature features from radar returns
  • An understanding of the application of target tracking and non-cooperative target recognition (NCTR) and target identification classifiers to radar problems
  • An understanding of outgoing phased array radar signal generation, including (but not limited to) waveforms, adaptive beamforming, and antenna design
  • An understanding of incoming radar signal processing chains, including (but not limited to) physical, electronic, and computational approaches/architectures
  • An understanding of radar resource management/budgeting approaches
  • An understanding of Systems Thinking / Systems Engineering practices
