Job Description

My client, a world leader in the defence sector, requires an Intelligent Systems Engineer to work as part of a team on the development and evaluation of state-of-the-art algorithms for the guidance, control and navigation of their missile and weapon systems.

The Intelligent Systems Engineer will work within a team of Intelligent Systems, Autonomous Systems and Command and Control Engineers to develop and evaluate state-of-the-art algorithms across a range of domains from on-board autonomous decision making to off-board algorithms. The work will involve the research, development, test, evaluation and implementation of algorithms that integrate into complex guided weapon systems products.

These algorithms are developed at many stages of the lifecycle of the product including:
*Research studies, both externally and internally funded, to investigate algorithms for future developments
*Algorithms to support: initial missile feasibility and concept studies; assessment and development programmes; and mid-life updates for in in-service products.

The IAS Engineer will collaborate with colleagues company-wide, offering the successful applicant significant opportunities to be actively involved in a wide variety of projects and tasks.

To be considered for this role, applicants will ideally be qualified to PhD level in a related area, but applications are welcome from candidates who are in the process of completing their PhD and who already have a good degree qualification with strong mathematical content and programming skills e.g. Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Information Engineering. You will have a keen interest in cutting-edge technologies and will have relevant experience (Post-Doctoral or Industrial) in robotics, autonomous decision making, data fusion, tracking/estimation, pattern discovery & recognition, statistical inference, optimisation and machine/deep learning algorithms. Experience of real-time implementation, and/or validation & verification would be highly advantageous.

As an Intelligent Systems Engineer you will develop broad knowledge across a variety of applicable fields and topics, but specific knowledge or experience in any of the following areas would be of benefit:
*Robotics, guidance and autonomous decision making
*Data fusion and state estimation/tracking algorithms
*Machine Learning for regression and pattern recognition/discovery problems
*Deep Learning
*Computer Vision algorithms

Ideally you will also have some knowledge and experience in:
*Matlab, Simulink and/or Stateflow
*Python including PyTorch, TensorFlow, OpenAI-Gym/Universe
*Model Based Design
