Dstl are an executive agency within the U.K Ministry of Defence (MOD) and provide a wide range of in-house expertise and technical services to U.K armed forces. The capability area in the Electronic Warfare (EW) space is transitioning to the use of software defined architectures that are underpinned by the use of (software) open standards. This area is seeing significant growth and we seek a person which RF expertise combined with Software Defined Radio (SDR) development experience to help to implement designs outputting from research and to help to grow SDR related skills and knowledge more broadly amongst internal staff. Within this exciting and dynamic role, you will work alongside other scientists and engineers within a research environment, implementing dedicated transceiver system architecture designs onto SDR platforms (the specific requirements will be articulated on appointment). The work will be exploiting Matlab and Simulink predominantly as a means of design although other tools and software may be considered on merit. As implementation designs mature, you will also play a part in the assurance processes providing practical process evidence for the verification and validation (V&V) of transceiver and associated waveform designs implemented onto software defined and reconfigurable platforms (internal processes for V&V do exist which any successful candidate will be welcome to contribute to as required).
