Job Description:


a. The Client is going through a concept design phase for a new submarine design.
b. In order to more fully explore the various aspects of a technically balanced submarine concept designs in sufficient detail, the Client has required assistance from Gavron to provide Design Review expertise.
c. Gavron requires a Submarine Survivability Engineer to form part of the design review team.


Gavron’s role is to review submarine concept designs to assess technical balance and safety. This requires the Gavron Team to develop a high level consideration of technical fitness for purpose, risk, systems and tools.
The role described in this PD addresses technical issues, some of which are at the “system level” within the overall Scope of Work.
The Applicant will be required to provide services to undertake survivability design support services in the Gavron Team as a full time role. Reporting to the Naval Architect, the Submarine Survivability Engineer will work for up to 21 months in the Gavron Team. The work will be in the following key areas, and will be undertaken in parallel of the activities in Naval Architecture:
1. Signatures: noise and vibration for underwater radiated noise mitigation; electromagnetic signature; infra-red signature; optical signature; and other signatures;
2. Signatures control systems; and
3. Signatures test and evaluation.

Tasks to include:
1. Review survivability design rules to be used by the design team in order that underlining principles can be met at both the system level and a whole of boat level to cover, inter alia, the following:
a) Susceptibility;
b) Vulnerability; and
c) Recoverability.
2. Review of signature management policies and processes;
3. Review of signature design rules;
4. Review of signature modelling and design tools;
5. Review of signature predictions; and
6. Review of signature control systems design.
The applicant will not be undertaking design work, but will assist the Naval Architect by reviewing methodologies, tools and assumptions proposed for submarine design and, where appropriate, provide recommendations for assumptions and design methodologies.
The Submarine Survivability Engineer:
7. Will be ideally predominantly based in the Far East;
8. Will be required to undertake international travel; and
9. May be required to undertake other duties identified and required by the Gavron Team.

Job Requirements:


Ideally based permanently in the Far East.
Alternatively, monthly overseas trips to the Client’s premises.


The Services of the applicant are required for up to 21 months (circa 210 Business Days per year on average) over the period of mid-September 2017 through mid-June 2019.
Any earlier termination will be agreed and addressed via a staged process.


Skill set: Signature Management, Naval Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Propulsion Engineering, Hydro-dynamics       Engineering.
Skill level: Discipline Specialist or Experienced Practitioner.


The Applicant must be:
Able to demonstrate sufficient depth and capacity of skills and experience to meet the requirements of the Scope of Work, including:
1. Conventional (or other) submarine design experience:
a. Able to demonstrate sufficient submarine depth and capacity of skills and experience to meet the requirements of the Scope of Work, including:
i. Experience developing survivability (or elements of) design rules within the early stages of a submarine design phase;
ii. Expertise in the design of the survivability control systems outlined in the Scope of Work; and
iii. The personal skills to work constructively within the program.
b. An engineer who has a clear understanding of the survivability modelling environment (especially in submarine signatures) required for concept design stage, and the capability to support its development; and
c. Conversant with current submarine survivability management guidelines and in-service signature issues (preferably UK, Australian, French and/or German).
2.  The inter-personal skills to work constructively within the wider Gavron Team, providing review and input to Gavron Team structural design reviews and associated assumptions; and
3.  Clear understanding and experience of the needs during pre and concept submarine design stages, and the capability to support its development.
