Our client who designs and manufactures active and passive avionics antennas and electronic control systems for military and civil communications is looking for an experienced SC cleared Senior Cyber Security Engineer to join their team on a contract basis.

They have world leading technology in Ground Penetrating Radar and RF interference mitigation. Both military and civil users rely on their direction-finding systems for search and rescue operations. They develop and manufacture high specification sector and multi-sector, directional, omni-directional, ultra-wideband (UWB) and MIMO antennas.

The role
You will be working within a team of systems, software, electrical, and hardware design engineers, programme managers, and other supporting functions, to deliver project specific goals. This would typically cover the full development cycle from requirements capture, system level design, concept development, simulation, prototyping, build, through to verification and production handover.

Skills and Experience
*Relevant Cybersecurity engineering design experience in the aerospace industry, particularly in RF, GPS, anti-jamming, and antenna products.
*Advanced experience in developing system security requirements to a set of software subsystems described by architectural diagrams and interface descriptions.
*Use of a requirements management tool such as DOORS, to perform system requirements validation, decomposition with traceability or to manage the verification of the requirements through a full product lifecycle.
*Several years of relevant interaction and understanding of UK and US government cybersecurity practices, laws, and regulations.
*Fluency in ISMS policies and cyber intelligence government agencies including ISO/IEC 27001, GDPR, NCSC, CVE, ENISA, NIST, FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, and current changes in cybersecurity policies in both UK and US.
