Job Description

Sitec has a requirement for a Supply Officer for our client based in Farnborough. This is a contract position for an estimated 6 months initially.

For this role, the max rate of pay will be £19.00 p/hr LTD Company.


ROLE INFORMATION
Our clients Zephyr project involves a solar-powered high-altitude pseudo-satellite (HAPS), designed to complement the advantages of both satellites and classic unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Flying in the stratosphere at an altitude of around 65.000 ft, the Zephyr offers a high, inherently stable vantage point unaffected by air traffic and weather and thus enable numerous unique remote-sensing or communication services.

Combining long endurance and local footprint, Zephyr quite literally fills the gap between satellites and today's UAVs. By day Zephyr flies on solar power generated by paper-thin solar cells covering its 23-metre wingspan which drive its two small propellers and charge up lithium-sulphur batteries which power the craft during the night-time.

Zephyr is the state-of-the-art technology demonstrator of our clients DS' Zephyr programme. It holds three official world records including the longest endurance of any unmanned aircraft.
