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

Organizational Description:

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.

Job Description:

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.

  • U.S. Citizenship is required

  • Minimum of 8 years of professional experience designing FPGAs using VHDL/Verilog.

  • Knowledge of Unix/Linux computing environments

  • Experience in Xilinx Programmable Devices (Virtex and Spartan Families) or Altera programmable devices (Cyclone, Stratix and Max)

  • Experience using VHDL simulation tools such as ModelSim or NCSim

  • Experience using synthesis tools such as Synplify and back-end tools including Xilinx ISE/Vivado, Altera Quartus and others

  • Experience with common computer hardware interface and data protocols such as RS-422, USB, PCIe, etc.

  • Experience with radar, signal & image processing, digital communications, control theories, estimation theory, and/or electro optics

  • Experience communicating with software teams in order to coordinate system interfaces and performance

  • Experienced with technical leadership of teams of engineers and the ability to multi-task

  • Experience guiding, coaching, and training other engineers

  • Active Secret Clearance

Desired Skills:

  • 10 years of professional experience designing, testing, integrating, and verifying circuits within complex systems.

  • Experience in high speed interfaces including ADC and DAC as well as Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGTs)

  • Experience with the integration of software drivers for the operation of computer hardware interfaces

  • low level design as well as high level architecture of systems

  • Understanding of computer architecture and computer hardware optimization techniques

  • Experience using Configuration Management tools for controlling Firmware configurations

  • Experience utilizing performance simulations, such as 6 Degrees of Freedom (DOF) simulations or Integrated Flight Simulations (IFS)

  • Proficiency in Linux or Unix

  • Working knowledge of C/C++ and/or in computer scripting language such as Shell/Perl/Python

  • Existing Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI)

Required Education (including Major):

  • Bachelor's Degree (BS) or Master's Degree (MS) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, Math or related fields required.

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.
