Software Engineering - System Modelling & SimulationNB'''' Please note only British Nationals can be considered due to security clearanceJob DescriptionMy client is expanding their System Modelling & Simulation team to provide the UK MOD Front Line Command (FLC) customer community - primarily Air Command - with the evidence, insights and advice needed to support decision making as part of air and aviation capability management.This team has an immediate need for an engineer with software experience to support the development of constructive and real time Modelling and Simulation (M&S) models and scenarios. The team designs and builds simulation capability blocks into scenarios that can be utilised to answer the military questions in the area of UK homeland defence, Joint operations and Air operations.Development utilises the Analytic Framework for Simulation, Integration and Modelling (AFSIM) toolkit (no experience of AFSIM is required as training will be provided, however experience of other modelling and simulation software would be an advantage). This position will require the ability to develop threat laydowns and simulation capabilities representing advanced weapon system concepts and implement those concepts in AFSIM scripts and potentially C++ using object-oriented design techniques.Key Responsibilities· Development of constructive and real-time Modelling and Simulation (M&S) models and scenarios using a combination of AFSIM scripts and C++ using object-oriented design techniques. This includes the ability to visualise analytical data extracted from the models.· Work closely with the customer to develop threat laydowns and simulation capabilities representing advanced weapon system concepts and implement those concepts.· Frequent communication across the engineering disciplines/technology areas with internal stakeholders and external customers· Ability to commute to customer site (Fareham/Gosport) where the majority of work takes placePerson Specification· The successful candidate possesses an engineering background combined with experience in mathematical modelling and an understanding of object-oriented software design methodologies and programming. Academic or practical experience in fields such as aerodynamics, kinematics, guidance and control, DIS/HLA, electronic warfare, radar, infrared sensors, and/or communications systems would be advantageous, but is not mandated.· Preferred qualifications / experience· Bachelors degree in a STEM discipline (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) (e.g. Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Computer Engineering or other related degree). From graduate to senior software engineer professional experience would likely be suitable for this position.· Experience in mathematical modelling and an understanding of object-oriented software design methodologies and programming using C++, C#, Python, MATLAB or similar languages.· General knowledge of software programming languages and databases and the ability to apply to software domain. Programming languages encompass higher order languages, auto-coded languages and script languages.· General Systems Engineering skills (requirements definition, requirements analysis, functional design/decomposition, enterprise modelling, test & acceptance)· General knowledge of real-time target environments, including processor and network architectures, communication protocols and simulation frameworks.· Ability to build, integrate and troubleshoot software components. Competency/Skill requirements· Adept at problem-solving, able to develop solutions to a variety of problems· Good attention to detail· Organised, adept at workload management and prioritising appropriately to meet deadlines· Flexible and responsive to changing priorities· Proactive team worker, equally self-motivated and able to work autonomously· Good interpersonal skills, able to engage effectively with all audiences/stakeholders· Proficient user of MS office· Competent in PowerPoint (and face-to-face presentation delivery - if required)· Fluent in written and spoken English· Strong customer focus· Engaging can do attitude
