Senior Antenna Engineer
Senior Antenna Engineer
Imagine a future - where internet connectivity knows no boundaries. Do you want to join one of the leading manufacturers of communication and satellite equipment on a fantastic transformational journey?
Cobham SATCOM is in a very exciting phase with many opportunities being pursued. Our strategy is focused around moving into new markets and segments within existing markets, leveraging our core technologies and long history within Maritime and Land-mobile satellite communication. At the same time, we make sure to maintain our market leading position in our current markets. For us to succeed with the strategy, we are currently expanding our organization, especially the R&D team.
For our Global Hardware Development Organization, we are recruiting for a Senior Antenna Engineer position (Principal Antennas/RF Engineer) to strengthen the very core of our satellite- and radio communication products, i.e. the antennas and microwave components area!
Working in Cobham SATCOM means having many opportunities to grow professionally as well as personally. We have a strong team covering all disciplines, so you will be able to work directly with other HW disciplines, as well as SW- and Mechanical engineering colleagues. We focus on high-quality products but apply a cost-conscious mindset.
You will be part of a team of 4-6 other antenna and microwave engineers and will be responsible for antenna designs (arrays, reflectors, feed horns, radomes and printed antennas) and microwave components (waveguide filters, OMTs, Diplexers, etc.) across all of our satellite communication terminals and gateways. Most of the current design work is done at L-, Ku- and Ka-band, but we also span radio frequency bands (MF/HF/VHF) as well as S- and C-bands. The natural next step will include the higher Q and V bands.
You should expect work to be hands-on design work with modern simulation tools and measurement equipment. The development work also includes system design, working with sub-suppliers and regulatory agency qualification testing as well as troubleshooting RF issues for production and quality control teams.
The role is based at our headquarters in Kgs. Lyngby, just north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Alternatively, you can also choose to be located at our new facilities in Aalborg, Northern Jutland, Denmark. You should expect some travel activity to certification test facilities as well as to our US development site in Concord, California.
You likely come with a Master’s degree or Ph.D. in electronics engineering where you have specialized yourself within antenna design and/or RF electronics combined with several years of experience from product development. Furthermore, you come with a basic understanding of RF electronics, including RF system/link budgets, LNAs, HPAs, mixers, filters, etc. You will be joining a strong and experienced team.
Furthermore, you possess a strong sense of ownership and responsibility of own tasks.
What you need to succeed:
Proven and demonstrated skillset in the antenna development area. Solid knowledge of measurement techniques using RF test equipment from L-band frequencies up to Ku- and Ka-band frequencies Strong knowledge of RF/Microwave principles and system and subsystem-level analysis methodologies. Speaking English at a profound level, as this is our corporate language. Minimum Qualifications
MS in Electrical Engineering, Physics or equivalent. Solid understanding of electromagnetics and antenna physics / optics. 8+ years of experience from designing and testing microwave antennas, including how to operate RF lab equipment, i.e. VNAs, spectrum analyzers and signal generators. 2+ years of experience with one or more of the following software tools: HFSS, CST, GRASP, WaspNET or FEKO Preferred Qualifications
Experience with designing and testing electronically steered array antennas (AESA). Familiarity with type approval testing of satellite user terminals (standards related to antenna patterns etc.). Waveguide based component design experience (OMT, Diplexer, Waveguide filter, etc.) MATLAB or Python experience.
