Solid communication skills The ability to obtain a security clearance is required Minimum education – a high school diploma is required A minimum of 5 years of experience in Spectrum Management and RF safety with relevant electrical engineering training may substitute for educational requirements Desired Qualifications: BSEE degree desired Ability to prepare and submit DD-1494 forms on behalf of programs Ability to travel to IDS locations around the country and potentially overseas in support of IDS programs an business pursuits Competent with MS Project, MS Access, Spectrum XXI, and ELCID Ability to prepare technical proposals The ability to develop and update Spectrum Management and EEEC policies and procedures Team leadership and task management experience is helpful Bring your talent and skills to the following IDS group: Electrical Design Directorate (EDD): EDD provides engineering design, integration and production to core radar and combat system competencies (process and control, integration and test, power systems, receivers and exciters, antennas and microwave subassemblies). EDD has responsibility for the following areas: Phased Array Radar design – RF/microwave antenna design Power and Electronic systems design Receiver & Exciter Design – REX System Analysis, Exciter Design, Receiver Design, Low Noise Sources, Simulation and Modeling, Metrology, Integration and Test Mixed Signal Design – Receiver A/D Converters, Direct Digital Converters, Receiver D/A Converters, Digital Waveform Generators, Mixed Signal CCAs, Mixed Signal Modules and Subsystems Digital Hardware – Subsystem/Module Digital Circuits, FPGA/ASICs, Beam Steering, Mixed Process/Photonics/Sensors, COTS systems, COTS interfaces, Subsystem Development, VME/PCI Digital Systems – System Trades, Architecture, Embedded Processing Software Design – Real-time Signal Processing, Beam Steering, Embedded Software Photonics Design – Fiber Optic Communication, Optical Control Within EDD, the Antenna and Microwave Department has responsibility for the following: Antenna Systems – Antenna System Analysis, Array Analysis, Electromagnetic Analysis, Array Calibration and BITE, Signal Level Analysis, Assembly, Integration and Test Antenna/Microwave Subsystems – Phased Array Subsystems, High Power Subsystems, Antenna Subsystems, Signal Level Analysis, Subsystem Integration and Test RF/Microwave Design – Simulation and Layout, Passive Circuits, Amplifiers, Ferrites, Component Test, Material Characterization Antenna Design – Radiating Elements, Reflectors, Feedhorns, Radomes/Frequency Selective Surfaces, Simulation and Layout, Antenna Test Members of the Antenna and Microwave Department hold key roles in all of Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) programs. An example of work performed in this department is phased array antenna design – and the analysis of array performance, including time side lobes, noise figure, noise floor, and other parameters.
This work requires an engineer familiar with the use of numerical modeling techniques and tools to determine the impact of array performance on radar or communication system performance. Working in this department involves close cooperation and communication with other engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical and software. Engineers in this department also follow their designs into production supporting manufacturing operations and system integration and test functions. Teamwork, trust and accurate results are essential to the success of working in this department within the Electrical Design Directorate.
Other examples of work performed within the Antenna and Microwave department include: design of Radio Frequency, Microwave and Millimeter Wave circuits, components or modules for use in radar or communication systems and measurement of subsystems using antenna test techniques, equipment and facilities.
