About the role:

 

The National Maritime Systems Centre (NMSC) is a new development built at Portsdown Technology Park (PTP) via a QinetiQ investment in support of its work for the Royal Navy to assure new combat systems for surface ships in the fleet.

 

The building of the NMSC addresses a long term strategic need for a Complex Mission Systems engineering facility capable of developing the systems and exploiting emergent technologies such as intelligent systems throughout the life of the vessels. The aim is to establish a 21st century systems engineering centre to deliver greater efficiency, capability and capacity to meet the challenges of complex maritime systems development and delivery for UK and International clients.

 

As part of this development, existing systems and capabilities that exist at PTP, comprising representative ship combat systems, need to be transitioned into the NMSC.

The transition programme will be delivering by an Engineering and Operations as part of the Shore Integration Facility team at PTP.
