Support the thermal analysis and design of the next generation Telecommunications missions; such as supporting the thermal modelling of the chemical and electrical propulsion systems on the new platform NEOsat. This includes activities such as supporting pipework design and assessing temperatures of the propellant through the lines, tank heater sizing, thruster and main engine firing analyses.
* As part of the thermal analysis team, complete and plan with supervision thermal
analyses and test activities to demonstrate achievement of thermal control system
* Apply knowledge and experience of thermal analysis and test tasks as to select and justify thermal analysis tools, methods and process, as well as design drivers.
* Work as part of the thermal analysis team, considering parts of the product
development life cycle, justifies product design and / or achievement of test objectives.
* Presentation of analysis results, observations and conclusions to peers and managers.
* Work to specification of thermal requirements.
* Demonstrate understanding of thermal analysis principles and expected performance, complete thermal analyses.
* Conforms to the role and responsibilities of the thermal analysis function, standards of work and data management.
* Within perimeter of own work, ensure configuration / detailed design incorporates key features necessary to enable subsystem, design for manufacture, integration and required hardware re-use.
* Possible support to thermal testing which achieves hardware qualification or
acceptance, and develop understanding of the effectiveness of analysis and any prior correlation.
* The authoring of clear and concise thermal analysis reporting, demonstrating the
understanding of thermal behaviours and compliance.
* Technical presentation of analysis and test results, observations and conclusions to lead engineer and as delegated at formal reviews.
* Contributes to work package and risk management as to ensure tasks / activities are completed on time, quality and cost.
* Degree or equivalent in Physics, Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering or similar related discipline.
* MS Office, Thermica & Thermisol
* Appreciation of thermal system, subsystem or equipment environment, design drivers,
