Job Description

Now that you are graduating, are you looking for a challenging and exciting career? If the answer is yes, have you thought about helping design and develop highly complex flight simulation systems for missiles?

The Advanced Test Systems Engineering Center (ATSEC), at Raytheon, is comprised of five departments, with an engineering population of 450+ employees. We design and produce $300M+/year of engineering test stations. The ATSEC organization has the responsibility to grow and sustain engineering competencies throughout all missile engineering test activities, and to make these systems more affordable, credible, agile, and robust.

Within ATSEC, the Hardware in the Loop (HWIL) RF Systems Department has the responsibility to design, develop, and maintain engineering test systems (missile flight simulators) that operate real-time and closed-loop with the weapon’s hardware and software. This work is very challenging and exciting.
A successful candidate will participate in integrated engineering teams, which perform the hardware design and software required to emulate the flight environment for the advanced missiles Raytheon produces. Common software tasks on these teams include the following activities:
