UAV Sensor Technician
Carbonix is seeking a highly qualified candidate with a broad range of skills and experience in this rapidly emerging sensor space.
Our UAV airframes are designed and built in-house, and we offer a range of existing off-the-shelf sensor payloads to our customers. We do not design or build any sensor systems in-house.
To ensure we continue to offer our customers the best sensor options available in the market, we are seeking a sensor technician to:
– Continually research and evaluate the sensor options available on the market for a variety of industries
– Provide critical analysis and support on how customers wish to use the UAV’s sensors for their specific missions
– Support the electrical integration of sensors and optimise the sensors on our platforms.
Candidates will require commercial sensor experience to enable them to lead our evolution in the required sensor research, development & practical integration into our world class UAV systems.
Data capture via sensors on-board UAVs is the primary requirement of our customers. Sensors are rapidly becoming smaller and more affordable, as well as more technical and sophisticated.
Desired sensor experience may include some of the following areas:
– Image or Geospatial sensors – such as Photogrammetry/Multispectral/Hyper-spectral
– LIDAR & LADAR
– Electro optical
– Thermal image capture
– HD Video – including live video feed via Multi-Axis accelerometers/RGB Gimballed cameras
Any experience in proximity locational sensors, speed and distance sensors or chemical sensors would be highly considered, but not essential.
The role may also be required to support work in areas such as command & control DATA-Link & multi-band knowledge including satellite communications.
The ideal candidate would have some experience working with unmanned systems, and will ideally bring detailed knowledge and experience in data processing, both on board and post flight.
Experience in fixed wing UAV operations, rather than multi rotor drone operations at slower speeds would also be highly regarded.
Carbonix understands this is a new and emerging sector, and a candidate with the ideal experience may not yet exist. We are keen to hear from any sensor expert who thinks they may be able to grow into this role.
This role is a full-time role, based in Sydney CBD. Role to start immediately.
