The mission control centre will act as a hub for command and control of remote operation of aviation services. You’d be the subject matter expert and take the lead in communications network support, project planning, design and implementation.

This is blank sheet of paper opportunity and would appeal to a Network Infrastructure Engineer who has a system or architectural outlook. We are looking for someone who has the experience to be able to specific the hardware & software and build on the prototype blueprint that is currently in operation. 
This position would appeal to a Network Engineer who is looking for autonomy and the chance to build a new system from scratch.
