Leonardo Receiver Core Development Team (CDT) is recruiting Senior RF Hardware Engineer to work within the RF Engineering Team which is involved in developing a diverse product portfolio. Projects that you will be involved in include developing the Fire Control Receivers and Synthesisers for the Radars fitted to the next generation of Gripen and Typhoon Fast Jets.
What sort of work would I be involved in?
You will be responsible for designing RF and Microwave circuits with very high performance levels. The types of circuit we work with are various receiver architectures, Phase-locked loops, Direct Digital Synthesisers, and general RF circuit design primarily using commercial components on microwave PCBs. We use a combination of the latest cutting-edge RF components and also tried-and-tested design approaches. The work involves extensive use of computer aided design tools, and also practical construction of lab prototypes. We work with a variety of active and passive components, mostly surface mount devices of RF and microwave PCBs.
Note, that due to the nature of the tasks involved, you will have to achieve full SC security clearance, and may need to satisfy further UK eyes only and ITAR conditions.
