Future Submarine Program (FSP), Australia’s largest Defence program, has taken on the challenge to deliver to the Royal Australian Navy a regionally superior, sovereign submarine capability. Submarines are a unique Defence capability and play an essential role in supporting Australia’s maritime security, and your work within the program, by engaging with Navy and Industry suppliers, will ensure that Navy has an enduring and potent submarine capability for generations to come.
By taking up this challenge and joining the team, you will be at the forefront of shaping a major Defence Capability that is essential to the future operations of Navy.
As the Combat Systems Tactical / Weapons Control Engineer, you will:
The Tactical System of the FSP is the AN/BYG-1 Command and Control system that is acquired through a MOU between the ADoD/US DoD and provided as GFE to the FSP prime contractors. The current AN/BYG-1 system is installed in the COLLINS Class and will evolve to the FSP variant. The Weapons Control systems includes launchers and Fire Control systems that both interface with the AN/BYG system and are partly delivered via the MOU with the US DoD. The actual Weapons and Depoyables (including drones and Unmanned systems) for FSP are subject of a separate Project that this position would be required to closely liaise with.
Defence supports a balanced work life with family and other priorities. You can access a variety of flexible working arrangements, including part-time work, occasionally working from home and working hours that aren’t always nine to five. There are competitive remuneration packages that may respond to industry variations and include generous superannuation arrangements, including a superannuation contribution of 15.4 per cent, higher than most industries.
