Emika Sandhiya racconta il suo lavoro quotidiano in Leonardo e spiega che cosa significa essere all’avanguardia nel settore radaristico

WHY DID YOU JOIN LEONARDO?

Leonardo is at the forefront of radar technology with innovation being the very engine of our products. As a microwave engineer, I was keen to expand my skillset and gain experience across the field – from component level design right through to system level design with test & measurement opportunities. Leonardo has offered an excellent platform for my professional development and in my time working here, I have been involved in Monolithic Microwave ICs (MMICs) design, multi-layer microwave PCB design, system level architecture, and a wealth of test and measurement experience, ranging from wafer-level mm-scale devices to a complete AESA radar in an anechoic chamber. This has afforded me an unprecedented level of experience, with a bird’s eye view on the development of a cutting-edge radar system, which in turn allows me to keep at the forefront of microwave radar engineering and develop my expertise in the area.

 

WHAT DOES YOUR JOB ENTAIL?

My main activities are the design, build and testing of innovative RF & Microwave solutions for our radar systems. I work as part of an inter-disciplinary team to provide a complete antenna solution. This includes holding internal design reviews for each stage of the process and presenting progress reviews to external customers. Typically, my day will involve a mix of detailed microwave design, requirements capture, preparing and delivering design and progress reviews, and liaising with the team members from different disciplines to ensure our common goals towards product development remain on course.

 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I enjoy the variety of work that I am involved in on a day-to-day basis. There is never a dull moment as I always feel I’m learning, as well as developing my skillset and knowledge base. Working in a multi-faceted team towards a common solution, provides endless opportunities to grow as a well-rounded engineer, and working at Leonardo definitely provides plenty of scope for this. The people I work with are an approachable, friendly and knowledgeable bunch who are a pleasure to work alongside.

 

WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND SOMEONE WORKS FOR LEONARDO?

Leonardo thrives on innovation and developing cutting-edge products – it is great to be able to contribute to that and be a part of world-leading technology development. On a personal level, being a mum, I have benefited greatly from Leonardo's generous maternity leave and continue to benefit from the flexible working policy which allows me to get the most out of my career and continue to share those important moments with my young family.
