About this role

  • Communication
  • Critical-thinking
  • Intercultural competency

This job designs, develops, integrates, and then verifies a ground-based cockpit. A ground station is an aeroplane cockpit that is on the ground, for autonomous aircraft.

Firstly, the customer provides “engineering requirements” which is their way of saying what they want/need the product to be.

The Techinical Lead Engineer then takes the requirements and comes up with a design. The design needs to cover everything, including: aesthetics, hardware, electrical, and software.

Then, the Engineer and thier team start building the design. They learn along the way and make changes to the original design as they go.

When all the different bits of design start to get put together, the integration starts. This is where they have to make sure all the pieces of the puzzle fit together…it doesn’t matter how good one aspect is if it can’t work with the other bits of the product. And then finally, the product is verified. This is the test to see if the final product does everything the customer asked for in the beginning.
