Simulation & Test Means Engineer


You will work at our client’s facility within the "Engineering Test, Simulation and Services" Department, more precisely in the "Simulation & Tools". Its mission is to provide and support efficient and innovative Simulation & Test Means mainly to the Design Office. These means are used for the Validation & Verification of the Helicopter's development:

  • Early Concept-Validation with fully virtualized Helicopter + Environment
  • Design Validation with Simulation Cockpits
  • Software Verification with desktop simulations
  • System Verification with partially real System parts (H/W-in-the-loop: Helicopter-Zero, Test Rigs)
  • Customer Support with Training Simulators for troubleshooting, maintenance training, or pilot training
  • Flight Safety with support to flight analysis by replaying in simulation flight data.

The Test-System is a complete eco-system of "Test Procedure Management Tools", "Automatic Test Sequencers", "Real-Time Test Tools", "Test Report management tools", "Simulation Frameworks", "Simulation Models", "Hardware interface boards for the Avionics", etc...

In Donauwörth there are approx. 30 deployed occurrences of such Test-Systems, plus many mobile occurrences as well as many deployed simulations.

Further Test-Systems are installed in France, Australia, Spain, Sweden and Brazil. A close partnership with these entities is to be maintained, requiring international collaboration.

You will be the focal point for your users, being responsible for the Tool-Suite availability and reaching a good level of Customer Satisfaction.

You will be working in a team, requiring cooperation, following standards and team spirit.

You will be working with sub-contractors, which ensure part of the Tool Maintenance in operative conditions (MCO), in particular you will coordinate the support for the tools developed within the department.
