Future Battlespace Solutions Undergraduate 2023
The Future Battlespace Solutions department supports multiple areas of the product lifecycle, from the development of future products to export sales. We conduct a variety of studies that provide critical decision-making evidence. Within our department there are three teams;
- The Weapon Systems Concepts team identifies and defines potential future weapon system concepts, based on anticipated customer requirements and promising future technologies
- The Operational Analysis team is involved with assessment of weapons system options in war fighting scenarios, developing the tactics for future weapons, and generating evidence to support high level choices, both for UK future systems and potential export campaigns.
- The Battle Modelling team develops and uses a suite of mathematical modelling and simulation tools, including an air combat flight simulator, which is used to test new concepts and demonstrate current products to potential customers.
Undergraduates will gain a detailed understanding of the department by being able to work across all three of these areas! Completing a wide variety of exciting tasks for multiple projects throughout the placement. We will provide guidance and mentorship to develop an understanding of weapon systems in operational use, gaining a broad understanding of missile systems and learning about our industry, as well as developing your problem solving and analysis skills and written and verbal communication.
