About the position
Would you like to work on advanced robotic systems or sensors for autonomous drones? What about mobile ad-hoc radio networks, messaging systems for the emergency services or internet of things sensors? How do you fancy airborne or space-based radars? These are all current or recent projects of our client, and they need the brightest minds joining their diverse team to deliver them.
