Hanwha Phasor Logo

Interoperable, ultra-low profile, high-gain satcom on the move


Configuration Engineer (Maternity Cover)

The configuration will engineer supports the operations team reviewing managing and maintaining product data and technology within the Hanwha Phasor PLM environment. This will include support for the NPI manager ensuring all engineering data and manufacturing data packs are present and have followed the correct release procedures, engineering change orders have been captured and implemented and that document control processes are accurate and up to date.

It is also expected that the configuration engineer will serve as a system administrator for the company implemented PLM system Minerva PLM (based on Aras Innovator) and will serve as the primary point of contact for all issues relating to its function, operation and ongoing development as we look to utilise best practices to further support the business in all areas. This means the right candidate will be comfortable meeting with internal and external stake holders to capture requirements as well as be able to present training material in a clear and concise format.

Look up and lock on to a bigger future, fast

As the original disruptors in solid-state satcom-on-the-move antenna, Hanwha Phasor is rewriting the book on phased arrays. It’s one of the toughest challenges in satcom. And, so far, we are the only team to demo multi-axis capability in real world conditions.

Now we’re closing in our goal: active electronically-steered antennas (AESA) for super-fast, super-reliable connectivity—GEO, of course, but LEO, MEO and HEO too.

Our inventive combination of digital and analogue architectures enables highest performance gain for lowest power and lowest profile, while our modular approach enables configurable apertures for the full range of enterprise customers on the move – in the air, on land or at sea.

Backed by Hanwha Systems, the Korean technology giant with a growing presence in global satcom, we are attracting formidable partners: we have appointed a world-class, global manufacturing partner, and two of the world’s best FABs are working on our chips.

So, what does that mean for you? All the fast-paced opportunity you’d expect from a challenger, plus the systems, processes and investment you’d want from an established industry leader.
