We are hiring for Systems Engineers who will take their experiences in electronics, instrumentation, antennas, RF/microwave systems (antennas/receivers/transmitters/filters, etc.), or other highly technical hardware/software integration project…to bring to our aerospace system engineering projects.
Since we have quite a few openings, we are looking for a broad range of skills, to bring into the projects. As a part of the team, the work you would be doing involves military based Radar Warning/Situational Awareness/Electronic Attack and Electronic Warfare RF Countermeasure systems in addition to Interferometry/Direction Finding systems and on-/off-board systems. The applicant will need handle the System Engineering duties ensuring hardware and software integrate, review of designs, perform simulations/generate circuit analysis for all system level requirements as well as RF components that fit into the overall project specifications, schedule, budget, reliability, and manufacturing ability.
Typical duties may include developing requirements, design/develop/simulate/analyze component technologies for transmitters, receivers and converters applied to radar. Candidate will also be working with ECM/ECCM sub-systems, generation of RF cascades, decomposing system requirements down to sub-system and component level requirements, generate/review specifications as well as block diagrams, interconnect drawings (ICD) and assembly drawings.
