Your role


Do you want to be part of building the future?

There is now an opportunity to be a key player in developing the next generation for user interfaces for Command and Control systems. The challenge here is to manage massive amounts of data and present them in an understandable way utilizing modern and future technology.


We need two students to design and develop a prototype for a user-centered Graphical User Interface for the next generation Command and Control system. This prototype shall utilize one or more different new technologies for e g 3D visualisation and touch input, in order to evaluate the usefulness of these technologies in this type of application. This system lets the user interact with the Airborne Early Warning systems and other sensor systems. The Command and Control system gives the user situational awareness and overview of data collected by all sensors.

The technology in consumer products develops faster than ever. For Saab to be able to adapt to new ways of working and younger users, Saab needs to explore the possibility to use todays and the futures technology in our Command and Control system for Airborne Early Warning aircraft. You will be an important part in taking our products into the future.#LI-DNP
