Job Description

The Modeling Simulation and Analysis Center within Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) consists of a highly skilled group of scientists and engineers developing the next generation of defense technologies that support our military and protect our nation and our allies. We are nationally recognized experts in Simulation, Synthetic Battlespace Design, Distributed Simulation, Videography, Scene Generation, Simulation Architecture and Simulation Lifecycle Support.Our efforts allow the customer to experiment with and develop new complex weapon systems in a simulation-driven virtual environment.

We’re looking for engineers who enjoy solving complex problems and engaging in a dynamic team environment.You would be creating battlefield simulations, developing detailed physics based hardware and environment models, performing pre/post flight analyses, integrating weapon embedded flight software, solving run time optimization, and investigating military product value.

Our department’s engineers are versatile, innovative, self-motivated and eager to learn.Let us help you put those math, physics, programming and engineering classes to practical use!Want to know more?We have included a definition section below the job requirements and YouTube links about our products.

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.


·Develop and implement simulation solutions in support of system design through the entire life cycle

·Ensure system solutions meet defined requirements and function as needed

·Perform data analysis in support of trade studies, flight tests, system performance assessments and system effectiveness

Required Education:

Bachelor’s or Masters’ Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Systems Engineering, Computer Science, other Engineering disciplines, Physics, Math, or related field from an ABET accredited curriculum.

**Please upload a copy of your most recent transcripts with your resume when applying to this requisition. Please include your cumulative GPA and projected graduation date on your resume. **

Required Skills and Experience:

Note:Bachelor of Science degree is classified as a Systems Engineer I (Salary Grade E01), Master of Science degree is classified as a Systems Engineer II (E02).

Definitions:Simulation is the discipline of designing a model of an actual or theoretical physical system, executing the model on a digital computer, and analyzing the execution output. The use of a mathematical model to recreate a situation, often repeatedly, so that the likelihood of various outcomes can be more accurately estimated

Model is a digital representation of a system over some time period or spatial extent intended to predict the physical system’s performance in the real world.

Visualization - Simplify Complicated Concepts into a concise 3 to 5 minute presentation to help clarify the intended message for the customer. Aid the War fighter by visualizing integrated systems solutions to help expedite key decision making processes Examples
