System Engineer FIRE CONTROL

The Solution Engineering Group performs all system engineering activities for the realization of a command & control system on board of naval ships.

Fire-Control combines the radar and the intelligent algorithm which is designed to assist a ranged weapon system in targeting, tracking and hitting its target.

About the job

The Above Water Warfare System (AWWS) protects ships and other units from above-water threats, which are becoming faster, smarter and more complex. When several of these threats come up against them simultaneously, it becomes increasingly difficult for human operators to take efficient and effective protection measures. The AWWS provides the necessary information to make the right decision within seconds. With a combination of a new generation of sensors and intelligent Fire-Control system, it continuously assesses which methods are best suited to tackle the detected threat.
