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.

Job Description and Key Tasks:
  • Work within a multi-disciplinary team (e.g. Guidance, Navigation, and Control, Signal Processing, and System Performance Analysis) to create high fidelity simulations and radar sensor models for missile system design, performance assessment, and flight test support.
  • Develop and implement credible modeling solutions to support trade studies and program simulations.
  • Independently determine and develop approaches and solutions on diverse projects spanning the product lifecycle from the initial concept to a fielded product.

Note: This position can be Salary Grade E01 (Systems Engineer I) or Salary Grade E02 (Systems Engineer II) based upon the applicant’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position.
Required Education, Experience & Skills:
  • Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, or Math
  • Applied work experience coding in object-oriented languages (especially C++)
  • Experience using mathematical tools such as MATLAB
  • Experience in the use of UNIX/Linux based workstations and Microsoft Office Suite
  • Must be able to obtain and maintain a Department of Defense Secret Clearance

Desired Experience & Skills:
  • Advanced Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, or Math
  • Course work or experience in the following fields: radar, signal & image processing, digital communications, estimation theory and/or electro optics
  • Working knowledge of computer graphics (e.g. OpenGL) and GP/GPU technologies and parallel processing
  • Electronic warfare modeling
  • Developing signal processing algorithms for missile applications
  • RF Scene Generation and Sensor Modeling
  • RF Hardware Design and Test
  • Strong analysis and problem solving skills
  • Good written and oral communication skills

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.
