Mechanical Engineering in the ISR Hardware Team provides diverse skills, knowledge, expertise and experience in the mechanical design of multiple platform environments from submarines to aircraft.
The role will require the engineer to operate within multi-functional project/product teams. The mechanical design of complex, high performance sub-systems in short timescales requires the use of advanced engineering tools - those in use include leading products such as Pro/Engineer 3D CAD, Flotherm CFD and Creo Simulate or Pro/Mechanica FEA.
Operating within multi-functional project teams you will be responsible for meeting timescale and budget of agreed tasks. Depending on the size of the project you may report to the Mechanical Team Leader and/or Engineering Manager or Work Package Leader.
Theoretical assessment of the design and its associated requirements to ensure that equipment performance requirements are met, including structural, dynamic and thermal analyses.
Support the project engineering team - liaise with, and support other disciplines.
Report on progress
Comply with local and company processes and procedures (supported by the Thales Engineering team)
Relevant design experience in a similar field with a good understanding of computer techniques, ideally a Pro/Engineer or Creo CAD user.
