Raytheon Missiles Systems (RMS) and the Systems Test Directorate are seeking expert professional technical leaders passionate about implementing and executing advanced technologies across entire lifecycle of missile systems that can ensure the highest quality of products to the warfighter as well as defense customers.
Raytheon Missiles Systems (RMS) is seeking experts in the field of Missile Technology, Systems and Systems of Systems Integration with direct application of advanced technologies to perform the role of Missile Systems Integrator for requirement verification of functional and performance capabilities. The Missile Systems Integrator role encompasses cross discipline engineering understanding and direct knowledge of multi-mode (Electro-Optical, Infrared and Radio Frequency) systems capabilities. This professional will be able to lead senior engineers in a dynamic environment to provide innovative solutions and rapid results through continuous solution space analysis and supporting business acumen and oversight. The candidate should have proven experience in performing critical aerospace system research, conducting trade studies, developing risk reduction test execution vision, creating the mission execution detail planning. This engineering fellow will act as a focal point for tactical Missile / Systems Hardware (HW) / Software (SW) integration efforts having complimentary knowledge in electrical and physical interfaces to ensure functionality of power, timing, and communications across systems, missiles and mission elements of the horizontal kill chain.
This individual will interface with customers and the RMS engineering, industry and government range facilities to expedite the test execution, innovative risk reduction experimentation in a captive carry, tower testing or specialized test environments laboratory using cutting edge simulation and controls of tactical open/closed loop new test configurations. The Systems Integrator should have core competencies to technically lead in the following areas of expertise:
Ability to perform the execution test plan with a high degree of ingenuity and innovative solutions with the utilization of test environment systems to verify interface functional capabilities through test conditions, scenarios and boundaries in lab induced setting as well as selective scenarios that stress states and modes through data gathering events and ground based test events.
Familiarity and expertise in the development of Computer-in-the-Loop (CIL) or Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) test environments for the simulation and control of tactical scenarios that demonstrate real-time open loop interfacing and real-time closed loop testing with prime tactical hardware during pre-launch, launch modes and states for the purpose of simulating motor ignition, safe separation, data link communications, initial guidance, mid-course guidance demonstrating target detection, acquisition of target engagements and maneuvers across multiple platforms with end-game maneuvers.
In depth understanding of telemetry and real time displays for both missile and target behaviors, real-time software implementation and electrical/mechanical systems designs. This expertise should translate to requirement verification or complex data analysis that demonstrates system performance guidance and navigation expertise and associated knowledge for evaluation of data with ability to make adjustments of key run attributes as required for "on the fly" support.
Ability to communicate with and influence senior executive leadership regarding matters of strategic importance to the product line and business unit. This includes an ability to conduct system level trade studies to adjudicate various test system approaches in arriving at a cost effective solution that is supported by all responsible IPT's. In addition, effectively communicate complex technical material across all engineering grade levels.
Knowledgeable in the use of Model Based Engineering as applied to the strategic execution of test systems. Knowledge can include career experiences in the architecture of Test and Evaluation events and environments which used models, simulations, test beds, prototypes, and full-scale Engineering Development Models (EDMs) to satisfy development and environmental/qualification objectives.
Drive Customer Affordability:
Ability to steer requirement verification solutions and critical analyses to ensure financial oversight of domain efforts driving program execution excellence and meeting customer commitments.
Seek opportunities to drive complex time critical troubleshooting investigative test events and/or provide improvements in product affordability, reliability, and availability through increased test capabilities that improve all test scenarios across multiple test environments.
Leadership & Business Acumen:
In addition to having a strong technical competency in Integration and Test, the candidate must possess executive presence and have proven leadership capabilities demonstrated at level of a Chief Engineer for a major development acquisition program (MDAP).
Strong presentation skills and previous experience briefing to the customer at the military pay grade O6 level (Navy Captain and Colonel and GS/GM-15 civilian employee) and higher.
Good business acumen and has demonstrated ability to make a business case and the value proposition for technical decisions being made.
Collaboration with critical Raytheon resources (managers, directors, cross disciplinary teams, etc.) to ensure program execution.
Ensure process diligence through content compliance
Support and lead business pursuits and growth strategy
Minimum of twelve (12) years of experience with systems verification, validation, integration and test or related experience
Minimum of ten (10) years of experience with systems engineering
Technical expertise in test methodology for Electro-Optical, Infrared and Radio Frequency systems.
Ability to apply advanced technical principles in the integration, verification, and test processes (including virtual verification)
Technical leadership with new business capture/pursuit experience including contribution or authoring of white papers, RFI responses, proposal of technical volumes or related experience
Active DoD Secret Clearance (SSBI desired)
Patents, Papers and Publications in related technical field (Desired)
Required Education: Bachelors of Science (B.S.) in engineering field (Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, Aerospace or Systems), science or related technical field. (Advance degree desired)
U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.
