Job Description

Raytheon’s engineers develop the next generation of defense technologies that support our military and protect our nation and allies. We are the world’s leader in developing and manufacturing leading edge missile systems and defense solutions. We’re looking for engineers who enjoy solving complex problems and engaging in a dynamic team environment.

Our efforts allow the customer to experiment with and develop new and complex weapon systems in a simulation-driven virtual environment. We create battlefield simulations, detailed software models of hardware and environments, perform post flight analysis, physics-based modeling, integrate flight software, run time optimization, and investigate military product value. Our center’s engineers are versatile, innovative, self-motivated and eager to learn.

The Tucson, AZ, Modeling, Simulation and Analysis Center (MSA) organization is searching for Radio Frequency (RF) Modeling Engineers to join our team of engineering professionals.RF Modelers apply a broad understanding of radar concepts and a basic understanding of associated software and hardware capabilities and limitations. They model missile technologies such as passive and active RF seekers or RF fuzes using physics-based modeling and may specialize in one or more RF areas. An understanding of other types of RF technology or of Electricity and Magnetism can be adapted to this role. A working knowledge of software, radar signal processing, and missile operational environments is helpful. The RF Modeler’s expertise make them adept problem solvers and allow them to perform or lead effective trade studies and develop advanced RF technologies.

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

Job Description:

ØCreate high fidelity simulations and radar sensor models for missile system design, performance assessment, and flight test support.

ØDevelop and implement modeling solutions to support trade studies and program simulations, ensuring they perform as intended.

ØIndependently determine and develop approaches and solutions on diverse projects spanning the product lifecycle from the initial concept to a fielded product.

ØCollaborate with Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC), Signal Processing, and System Performance Analysis personnel to perform simulation activities according to program schedules.

Required Skills:

ØU.S. citizenship is required

ØApplied work experience coding in object-oriented languages (especially C++)

ØExperience using mathematical tools such as MATLAB

ØExperience in the use of UNIX/Linux based workstations and Microsoft Office Suite

ØMust be able to obtain and maintain a Department of Defense Secret Clearance

Desired Skills:

ØProficiency in Linux or Unix OS

ØCourse work or experience in the following fields: radar, signal & image processing, digital communications, estimation theory and/or electro optics

ØWorking knowledge of computer graphics (e.g. OpenGL) and GP/GPU technologies and parallel processing

ØDesign and analysis of simulation experiments involving RF Receiver Chain, RF Environment, RF verification/validation, or other Radar Frequency related variables

ØFamiliarity and knowledge of system engineering and analysis and interfacing with multiple engineering disciplines

ØElectronic warfare modeling

ØKnowledge of Software Configuration Management tools

ØDeveloping signal processing algorithms for missile applications

ØRF Scene Generation

ØRF Hardware Design and Test

ØModeling electromagnetic signals and sensor systems

ØStrong analysis and problem solving skills

ØGood written and oral communication skills

ØAbility to work well in teams and multi-task

ØCurrent Secret Department of Defense Clearance

Required Education (including Major):

Bachelor of Science or Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, or Math from an ABET accredited curriculum with a 3.0 GPA or higher. Must have graduated within the past 18 months from day of hire.

Note:This position can be Salary Grade G06 (Systems Engineer I) or Salary Grade G07 (Systems Engineer II) based upon the applicant’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position. ERIP eligible for G07 only.

***Please upload a copy of your most recent transcripts with your resume when applying to this requisition***

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the US, foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement. Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens.
