A major Defence Engineering organisation are looking to secure the services of an ECM Mission Data Developer at their site in Lincoln (subsequently moving to Middle East) to use their MDS expertise to support their customer acquiring the skills to independently design and build their own indigenous MDS

The successful candidate will ideally have MDS experience in relation to the Praetorian Defensive Aids Sub-System (DASS) fitted to the Eurofighter Typhoon platform, although similar experience with other platforms will also be considered. The role will focus on the successful candidate using their MDS expertise to support our customer acquiring the skills to independently design and build their own indigenous MDS - this will include design support so as to ensure that all component MDS elements operate effectively together.

You will be responsible for:

*Generating processes and procedures for MDS design, development and programming
*Supporting the creation of formal training courses for all aspects for MDS generation
*Delivery of (or at least support to) classroom training for MDS programmers within the EWC
*Providing informal on-the-job training to MDS programmers within the EWC
You will have:

*Degree-level qualification (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline
*Recent experience of operational MDS design, development, and programming (ideally for the Typhoon Platform)
*Understanding of EWOS and the EWOS lifecycle
*Knowledge of the tools, data and/or processes used by end-users, such as the teams at the Joint EW Operational Support Centre (JEWOSC) at RAF Waddington
*Understanding of ESM system technology, operation, function and performance

*After the initial period in the UK, the successful candidate will be deployed on a permanent basis to the Middle East to work within in the end user's EWC. A deployment package (to include dependents if desired) will be agreed prior to deployment, to include accommodation, transport and flights. The deployment period will last until the end of 2022, with the possibility of extension subject to future support contracts*

In return, you will be offered an extremely competitive salary and an opportunity to make your mark with a clearly defined career path in a forward thinking organisation.

*** Please note this role requires UK defence security clearance to SC level as a minimum, you must be SC clearable to apply for this role ***
