Your main responsibilities as a EEE (Electromagnetic Environment Effects) Engineer will involve:

  • Undertaking EEE related tasks & support the EME Lead ensuring the EEE design is adequately implemented throughout all products, systems and platforms
  • Undertaking EME analysis in support of Safety, Interoperability, Performance and Capability Validation of an EME aspect. Support to Procurement in reviewing supplier’s responses and discussions with suppliers. Carry out analysis including RADHAZ, Mutual Interference, EMC, EMP, Lightning and TEMPEST
  • Ensuring that the key reports are kept up to date and reported to the EEE Lead monthly
  • Providing help and direction to less experienced team members to support both their effective working and their development
  • Supporting the EEE team at a variety of sites for the EEE aspects and problem resolving
  • Answering any EEE queries and if necessary, update the design policies to reflect any systematic change
  • Topside Assessment
  • TEMPEST Assessment

Your skills and qualifications:

Essential skills:

• Awareness of antenna and receiver front-end design for RADAR and communication systems, including antenna siting, RADHAZ, Mutual Interference, exclusion zones with trade-offs between systems
• Understand the requirements for lightning and ESD protection including cone of protection and rolling sphere analysis and strike probabilities
• Awareness of materials avoidance of galvanic corrosion and passive intermodulation
• Knowledge of EEE related UK defence standards (DEF-STAN 59-41 and 59-411), related US standards (MIL-STD 461) and Civil EMC standards

• Ability to manage support EEE problem sentencing activities to an agreed programme and budget
• Ability to perform an EEE gap analysis and assess consequential EEE risk and develop risk mitigation schemes in support of product and integration teams
• Awareness of modelling capability and be able to determine when the use of approximate or full field tools is appropriate and the most cost-effective technique
• Capable of undertaking and supporting TEMPEST assessments and aware of current TEMPEST standards
• Design experience plus mitigation and understanding risk
• Degree (or equivalent such as HNC or demonstrable experience) in electrical engineering or an associated science subject
