* Elicitation and understanding of stakeholder needs to support the development and management of the system-level requirements
* Performing requirements analysis and iterative refinement to capture accurate definitions
* Involved in functional design and take responsibility for significant systems design decisions and sub-system level analysis tasks
* Contribute to solution reviews and trade-off studies to ensure compliance of technical solutions and fitness for purpose

Essential Skills, Qualifications & Knowledge Required for the Principal EW RF Systems Engineers

You will have knowledge and experience in several of the following areas:

* Degree-level qualification (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline
* Systems engineering lifecycle and associated reviews
* RF sensor system development across phases of the systems engineering lifecycle, with particular focus on RWR, RFCM or RADAR architectures, technologies, and performance
* RF system design and analysis at architectural, system and subsystem levels
* Signal propagation assessments through complete signal processing chains
* Development and/or analysis of algorithms for complex data processing
* Engineering development tools, (e.g. Matlab, Simulink, Rhapsody System Architect, DOORS, C/C++, C#, Python)
* RF / Microwave / Antenna design
* FPGA (particularly Xilinx), VHDL, System Generator and HDL Coder
* EW capabilities and technologies within wider/non-traditional domains

The role is based in Luton, Bedfordshire - commutable from Watford, St Albans, Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Bedford and Stevenage with excellent access from London
