:PS I have worked in defence, ie. I have been vetted.

I know a cat who's been vetted. He wasn't too happy about it.
Of course, he's not really a he any more...

    my CV is included below, although it's a bit long (company
standard). I haven't edited out the superflous stuff, no time ;-(
but hopefully you can wade through it.

The salary scales you offer are a bit below what I'm on now, but
maybe the benefits would make it interesting.

1989 - Present,  Cray Systems Limited

Dave is the team leader of a project team consulting to the European Space
Agency, providing strategic planning, requirements analysis, hardware &
software evaluation, design and transfer of new communications systems
to operational support.

He is principally involved in the design of wide and local area network
architectures capable of transporting multiple protocols over heterogeneous
transmission systems. These systems must provide a high degree of security to
internal (ESA) users as much confidential and valuable data is at risk.

Particular projects were:

   the design of the European Space Agency's "ESINET" network. This is an
   internal pan-European network carrying TCP/IP, DECnet and Novell IPX
   traffic, with links to many other national agencies, such as the
   National Aeronautics & Space Agency (NASA) and the European Southern

   the design and installation of secure systems through the use of access
   lists, firewalls, and customised "sniffing" software to protect ESA's
   networks, and detect possible violations. This project includes making
   high-level briefings to ESA management in Paris.

   definition of the addressing policy for TCP/IP, Novell and Appletalk-based
   communications, and also the specification for a system to provide address-
   management. All of these have been adopted as policy by ESA.

   design and implementation of ESA's first operational FDDI network at its
   research site in the Netherlands, and the networking infrastructure for
   ESA's In-Orbit Servicing facility at ESTEC in the Netherlands.

Other areas of involvement include planning management of a Novell-based
LAN, network management for ESINET and local area networks,
and the interface of higher level applications to transport systems.

1988 - 1989  Serco Space,  Senior Engineer

Joined Serco as a Senior engineer to provide strategic planning to the
European Space Agency for local and wide area networking. Principle duties
were as described above.

1986 - 1988  Ministry of Defence, RSRE, HPTO II

Promoted to Higher Professional and Technology Officer, grade II (HPTO II),
and became system manager of a Full Custom Integrated Circuit (IC) Design
facility, with a team of 4 staff. This facility was part of the Computer
Aided Design Centre (CADC), which provided design and production facilities
to the scientific community at RSRE. Responsibilities included:

   Research into new layout techniques for ICs and other geometries,
   necessitated by the unique nature of the scientific requirements. This
   included programming in graphical description languages to implement these

   Specification of a new suite of design tools the and associated hardware for
   the continued evolution of all design systems, within CADC.

   System administration of all computers used by the design centre, including
   PCs, Sun workstations, and Data General minicomputers. This encompassed the
   networking of the systems over ethernet thin-wire and fibre-optic LANs,
   running TCP/IP and DECnet protocols,  and the creation of accounting and
   charging systems. A PC lan, based on the NESTAR  networking system, and
   utilising on Token-ring was used to provide low-level design facilities,
   and office automation tools.

   Presentation of briefs and papers to MoD senior management, conferences,
   and companies within Europe and the USA.

The main project undertaken was the design of a Hybrid Micro-Electronic
Layout system using fully automated placement and routing features. The
system was written in a proprietary graphical programming language, and
interfaced to a commercial IC design package. The features of the programs
were the automatic design of parts according to predefined rules, and the
interfaces to the layout and routing tools provided by the system.

1982 - 1986 Ministry of Defence, Pre/Post Graduate

Joined the Ministry of Defence prior to entering university, on the student
engineer training system. Was assigned to the Royal Aircraft Establishment
(RaE) in Farnborough, and received training in all engineering disciplines.
During university, and the post-graduate year, the summer vacation was spent
at various sites on secondment. These are listed briefly below:

1983, RSRE, Packet Communications Department.

Assembly code programming for a hand-held battlefield communications system.

1984, RaE, Fighter Cockpit Systems.

Hardware/Software design of a digital decoder/demultiplexer used in trials of
the Marconi SRX-80 Speech Recognition system.

1985 - 1986, RSRE, Computer Aided Design Centre.

Design and implementation of a protocol converter between heterogeneous
computer systems. This system also provided command analysis for security

Military Communications Projects (MCP12), London.

Attached to a project team to provide technical support on military
communications projects. This included receiving extended training on all
aspects of project management.

Smiths Aerospace Industries, Cheltenham.

Attached to a project team to test and program an inspection system for PCBs
used on Tornado fighter aircraft. This included the production of operational
