About us

With 80.000 talents working in 68 countries, we are one of the biggest high-tech employers in the field of safety and security. In the Netherlands, where 2000 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ). Together with an extensive ecosystem of knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cyber security solutions, transportation systems, communication equipment for land forces, cryogenic cooling solutions, research & development for radar tech (in collaboration with TU Delft).

The software department of the Application Engineering cluster is responsible for the software development in Combat Management and Radar- and Optical sensors for worldwide navies- and defense systems. The work is performed in multi-disciplinary agile teams with specialists in software/system/test engineering and functional design.

Within these systems there is the Sensor Management subsystem. This subsystem is responsible for all control aspects of the various Sensors and the provision of a standardized Open Sensor Interface (OSI). Customers often require an adaptation from this standard interface to their dedicated interface, controlled by themselves.

To accommodate this, translation software needs to be manually created which is customer specific and creation is time consuming.
