Job Description

As an Integrated Product Team Leader, you would lead a team of skilled and experienced Hardware Engineers who work on projects related to Air Data Computer technology. Here in Bournemouth, we design and manufacture cockpit voice and data flight recorders as well as air data computers and ice detectors. Our Air Data Computers have the world's highest specification pressure sensors while operating in an aircraft environment.

You would lead the team to success by using the latest safety critical microcontroller technology to generate airspeed and altitude output signals. The Air Data Computer supplies primary airspeed and altitude data to other aircraft systems including pilot instruments, autopilots, flight management systems and many others. You would also be working with Ice Detector technology targeted at helicopters and used to control helicopter deicing systems. Ice Detectors include various heater control systems and hot compressed air handling to keep the detector deiced. Various technical challenges are presented by the optical detection method, which has to operate outside the aircraft.

Our Ice Detector and Air Data Computer developments require the full rigor of a level A design process. Your natural ability to lead a team, bring people on side and prioritise work in addition to your technical abilities mean you will do well in this role.
