Business description:

We manufacture and market a submersible marine marker buoy and retrieval system, used in defence (Australia, US, Belgium) as well as research and fishing.

Projects / tasks:

Some our technology is now out dated, both in terms of electronics hardware as well as software, in particular the User Interfaces. We would like the intern to understand the function of the current technology and why it operates the way it does, specifically for defence requirement, then look at contemporary equivalents to do the same job, particularly with consideration to users expectations of how things should and do work now (ie. Phone apps etc), balanced against defence security issues. The system utilizes subsea through-water acoustic communications technology.

Technical skills:

C+ or C# and advantage but not vital, an understanding of relevant hardware and electronics would be needed.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

Would be required to take part in field trials at times on a boat, inshore only.
