Raytheon Company Overview
Are you ready to be remarkable with Raytheon?
Game-changing command and control for missile defense
3-D 360 Experience with electronic warfare
The Advanced Test Systems Engineering Center (ATSEC) is an organization within the Systems Test Directorate comprised of five departments and an engineering population of approximately 550 people, and over $350M per year of delivered products. The ATSEC organization has the responsibility to grow and sustain the Systems Engineering competencies throughout all test activities, and to make test more affordable, credible, agile, and robust.
Within ATSEC, the Hardware in the Loop (HWIL) Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Optical (EO) Departments have the responsibility to provide, develop, and maintain engineering development stations that operate real-time and closed-loop with the weapon's hardware and software. These test environments include Software Evaluation Stations (SWES), Computer in the Loop (CILs), Processor in the Loop (PILs), and Hardware in the Loop (HIL) facilities, which are used to perform the development of weapon embedded software, qualification of embedded software (FQT), integration of weapon's hardware and software, and verification of the weapon's systems performance. The HWIL departments support all Raytheon Missiles Systems (RMS) products, including new business initiatives, maintenance contracts, Internal Research and Development (IRADs), and Engineering Capital projects. Specific responsibilities of both HWIL departments include:
Development of test environment's requirements, interface requirements, design, and documentation.
Design and implementation of hardware, firmware and software to perform real-time and closed-loop operation with the weapon's hardware and software.
Preparation and release of the environment's Technical Data Package (TDP), and verification of requirements, acceptance test and delivery of the equipment (ATP/TRB).
Development and execution of technology roadmaps to insert new technologies in these engineering test environments.
NOTE: This position can be a Salary Grade G10 or Salary Grade G11 from the US 11 Salary Admin Plan based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position.
Experienced level engineer position for an individual with educational and professional experience in the development and implementation of both hardware and firmware for military weapon systems.
The individual will be responsible for the development, implementation, and utilization of firmware and hardware to interface real-time and closed-loop with weapon subsystems in a way that provides an operationally relevant stimulus to allow for weapon software development integration and test.
The individual is expected to lead the technical execution of a team of engineers, working on complex projects and achieve the required capabilities on or ahead of schedule and at or below cost. The individual will be required to ensure development support throughout the product lifecycle, from initial concept through acceptance to maintenance of the product.
The individual is expected to work in accordance with the Systems Test directives to perform product design, development, implementation and maintenance.
U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.
