    Job Description

     

    Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017, it generated revenues of € 67 billion and employed a workforce of around 130,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners from 100 to more than 600 seats. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as Europe’s number one space enterprise and the world’s second largest space business. In helicopters, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide.

    Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary – on the ground, in the sky and in space.

     

    Description of the job

    Do you love coming up with effective solutions to practical electronics problems? Did you study robotics, electronic engineering or something similar and have since started to build your career, using LabView to design and build data acquisition systems or develop creative ideas for automation? If so, you are just the person we need to help design, build and test our sophisticated wind tunnel models.

    It’s here at Airbus in Filton that we are privileged to carry out this work, with our wind tunnel conducting experiments for both Airbus and External companies. We are proud of our unique legacy of testing every aircraft developed in Filton from Concorde through to the latest A350 XWB. Are you ready to join our high performing team?

    Do you have a care and attention to detail, able to pick and apply different instrumentation and measurement techniques appropriately, taking inspiration from different fields and challenging how things are done? Would you like the opportunity to develop these abilities on wind tunnel models of aero engines, maybe a helicopter and of course on all our latest aircraft? If so, you will take a crucial role in our team, helping us deliver high quality aerodynamic and acoustic data to our customers.

     

    Tasks & accountabilities

    Your Tasks:

    o You will design and develop bespoke data acquisition and control systems for Wind Tunnel models, using the suite of National Instruments hardware and software.
    o You will provide in-house electronics and instrumentation design and development services.
    o You will design and build embedded microprocessor circuits and develop software to perform data acquisition and control.
    o You will love developing your own technical know-how and relish new, bigger challenges or problems to solve.
    o You will enjoy working in an international team to share ideas and come up with novel solutions to acquire, control and display test model data.
    o You will test, maintain, modify and calibrate existing instrumentation, specialist rigs and data acquisition systems.
    o You will carry out advanced data analytics, finding creative and practical solutions for data acquisition and processing.
    o You will document instrumentation and software used in the Wind Tunnel and Models.
    o You will design and build sensor harnesses and cabinet enclosures.
    o You will manage the routine calibration of equipment and sensors via the onsite calibration facility.

    You will have some travel within Europe, as required.

    This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.

     

    Required skills

    As the successful candidate, you should be able to demonstrate the following:

    o Degree level in robotics, electronic/electrical engineering, automation or similar.
    o A good foundation in programming large scale applications using National Instruments LabVIEW, with a desire to grow your abilities further, working stand alone or as part of a team.
    o Experience of building data acquisition and control systems using National Instruments PXI, Compact RIO/FPGA, cDAQ and FieldPoint hardware.
    o Knowledge of analog and digital electronics including filters.
    o Experience in software development and circuit design for embedded microprocessors such as Microchip PIC32.
    o An ability to work 'hands-on' from first principles to safely diagnose electrical and electronic issues (to board level) and implement prompt, effective and safe repair schemes.
    o A good working knowledge of instrumentation: pressure transducers, strain gauges, temperature transducers, load cells, encoders etc.
    o Ability to produce wiring/circuit diagrams
    o Practical experience of sensor wiring, soldering and control cabinet assembly
    o A willingness to learn.
    o Team player and effective communicator
    o Ability to work systematically with attention to detail
    o Data analytical methods
    o Familiarisation with aerodynamic and wind tunnel terminology would be great albeit you can learn that here too.
