  • IPC J-STD-001 soldering certification
  • Mechanical design and CAD capture to company drawings standards
  • Demonstrate able experience of Live Test & Inspection work
  • Appreciation of the product development life cycle and product verification processes
  • Product requirement specification capture
  • An appreciation of electrical (including 'fail safe' design methodology), ionising radiation, non-ionising radiation and electromagnetic safety requirements
  • Familiarisation of equipment thermal management cooling systems (water / Glycol / forced air) and associated monitoring
  • Knowledge of magnetrons, klystrons, SSA's and TWT's an advantage
