Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) and Air Traffic Management (ATM)

As a senior member of staff in the Aircraft Design Group, you will work closely with colleagues specialising in avionics design and avionics software systems and will be expected to develop and lead the CNS/ATM research activity in the group. An active researcher, you will have a strong background in modern avionic/CNS/ATM system design (e.g. RPN, 4D Trajectory based operations and PBN) a proven research track record and also a proven ability in winning funding from UK and EU initiatives in the field.

The Department has a Large Aircraft Flight Simulator (LAFS), an Avionics Rig and various other Flight Simulators. Additionally, we are planning an innovative CNS/ATM Laboratory, which will include also the networking of the simulators available in the School of Engineering and possibly other resources in Cranfield University. You will lead the establishment of the CNS/ATM Laboratory and in the day-to-day activities required for running and maintaining the LAFS.

In addition to high quality research, you will be expected to design and deliver aeronautical communications systems and ATM lectures and tutorials as part of the taught MSc programme in Aerospace Vehicle Design (Avionics option), with the aim of growing the CNS/ATM content leading to possibly a separate option including short and long courses.
You will provide support to the Design Project element of the MSc programme and will supervise research theses.

You must have a PhD in aeronautical/aerospace or electronic engineering and research experience in the field of CNS/ATM. Industrial and direct experience of practical CNS/ATM Integration also would be expected.
