DST Group’s Cyber and Electronic Warfare Division (CEWD) is relied upon by Defence to solve their most difficult and sensitive cyber security and electronic warfare challenges, and to give them a future capability edge within the information warfare domain.
The successful candidate will be part of challenging joint (with WCSD) and international research programs on the technical evaluation and vulnerability analysis of RF tracking systems for guided weapons. This position will provide valuable S&T insights into the Counter Measures Development and Validation (CMD&V) and Joint Survivability and Tactical Validation (JSTVP) programs.
As part of the RF S&T team the holder of this position will carry out scientific and technical analysis and evaluation of concepts and designs for advanced RF tracking systems. The work will include the development of associated tools and models to characterise and evaluate simulation hardware representative of future RF threats. This may involve supervising the work of other APS personnel and contractors. The positon reports to the discipline lead of the S&T team within the Radio Frequency Electronic Warfare Group.
The applicant will need to demonstrate aptitude in learning and developing expertise in new areas underpinned by a strong knowledge of engineering, physics or computer science. Experience in radar, RF engineering, tracking systems, electronic design and testing is preferred.
Hands-on experience or a keen interest in laboratory based technical work would be important. Experience or an appreciation of both the design and application of Modelling & Simulation approaches to complex tracking system evaluation would be desirable. The applicant will be responsible for managing specialised laboratory facilities, as well as procurement of equipment and services in support of the development of these facilities to meet future S&T capability requirements
The applicant is expected to possess a high level of written and oral communications skills, and will be able to demonstrate this by reference to both written products and examples of oral communications (e.g. presentations, mentoring, and knowledge transfer) in the technical domain.
Collaboration with R&D partners in academia, industry, and other international government research labs is an important part of all positions in the branch in order to progress the state-of-the-art. Continuing to develop the knowledge, skills and expertise of staff is critical to our effectiveness and success. Ongoing support is provided through opportunities for training, further tertiary education, secondments to Australian and overseas partners, workshops, and conferences. Underpinning this is a strong Science & Technology career path within DST Group, allowing development as a technical leader or deep specialisation in a chosen field.
