The Information Systems we develop collect, process, analyse, display disseminate and control information - both in battlespace and wider enterprise situations. All of these systems are mission critical: they process classified information, must be safe and secure, and resilient to cyber-attacks.
Developing and maintaining these complex systems requires a team of systems engineers who are experienced across the systems engineering lifecycle from requirements, architecture and design; building and integrating systems; verifying, validating and accepting systems and subsequent upgrades. Systems engineers should also have a good understanding of the key speciality disciplines of safety, security, human factors and integrated logistics support.
Our recruitment looks to find people that have those foundation skills plus one or more specific capabilities, currently aligned to skills such as:
Developing requirements and designing systems:
- Requirements elicitation, capture, management and tracing
- Creating enterprise and system architectures, and system designs
- We use Architecture Frameworks such as MODAF, NAF and TOGAF to describe enterprises, and the SysML language
- Systems engineering tools such as DOORS, MOOD and Enterprise Architect are prevalent
Building and integrating systems:
- Making effective selections of commercial and military off the shelf elements as part of system solutions
- Planning, managing and performing integration - understanding how to build the maturity of a system solution while understanding risk and opportunity
- Designing and certifying the functional and electrical safety of physical installations and rigs
Verification and validating systems:
- Selecting and making appropriate use of inspection, analysis, demonstration and tests to gather evidence of system maturity
- Planning and conducting activities that verify that a system meets it requirements, and that validate that the system satisfies the original user need.
Typical generic foundation skills:
- Our work accommodates a number of engineering lifecycles, such as traditional Waterfall, iterative, incremental and AGILE
- An aptitude for the concept of “safety-involved” as well as “safety-critical” and “secure” helps develop a mind-set aligned to the defence sector - especially with growing cyber threats
- Experience and exposure of process-driven engineering, continuous process improvement, quality management systems is a useful skill in establishing cultural alignments
