Raytheon Technologies Senior Principal Systems Engineer - Air to Ground in El Segundo, California

Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RIS) is the leading provider of radar sensor systems. We provide war fighters the most accurate and timely information available for the network-centric battlefield. This senior level systems engineering role will perform algorithm systems engineering as part of the F-15 Programs Department. This department provides the full range of systems design and analysis-related activities in support of RIS radar programs.

The highly qualified candidate will possess career experience and demonstrate technical knowledge in radar algorithm/mode techniques associated with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Sea Surface Search/Track (SSS/T), and/or Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI). Other desirable skills include familiarity with complex radar capabilities, such as active electronically steered array (AESA) antennas, receiver/exciters (REXs), Electronic Protection (EP), radar digital signal processing electronics, pointing and stabilization measurement instruments, and control algorithms. Additionally, a robust System Engineering background with knowledge of radar architecture, requirements, modeling and simulation techniques, system analysis, and radar mode development is desired.

As a defense contractor, there are specific programs requiring a certain level of security clearance and special access for assigned staff. The selected candidate will be required to secure these accesses. Not being able to secure the Interim Secret Security Clearance needed for this position may result in termination of employment.

Responsibilities:

  • Development of mathematical algorithms for air-to-ground mode radar signal processing

  • Computer modeling and simulation of sensor physics and phenomenology

  • Performance predictions and analysis of data received from radars on various platforms

  • Technical mentorship of junior engineers

  • Technical presentations to both internal and external customers

  • Technical team leadership participating in technical peer reviews throughout the product lifecycle of design, development, integration and test, flight test requirements verification, and sustainment

  • Interface with their team lead, team members, and other teams (SW and HW) on a regular basis

  • Conduct or participate in customer and/or program technical review presentations, and provide task progress status updates and work products to the team lead

  • Lead the analysis and resolution of critical program Problem Reports (PRs) and/or Software Change Requests (SCRs)

  • Identify, analyze, and reconcile requirement differences across various F-15 programs

    Required Skills:

  • Minimum of 10 years related experience developing mathematical algorithms or quantitative analysis techniques

  • Relevant work experience in signal processing, sea surface search/track, synthetic aperture radar, or ground moving target indication radar

  • Experience with MATLAB, C/C++, Python or related languages

  • U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will require the U.S. Security Clearance as of day one.

    Desired Skills:

  • Demonstrated experience with Air-to-Air modes

  • Demonstrated mathematical problem solving ability and data analysis experience

  • Demonstrated interpersonal communication, presentation skills, verbal and written communication skills

  • Work experience with one of the following areas related to radar systems: search or track, surveillance, reconnaissance, electronic protection, ID, or adaptive techniques

  • Customer focus and collaboration skills

  • Strong desire to learn, take initiative and contribute in a team-oriented environment

  • Demonstrated team leadership experience

  • An understanding of the physical limitations to implementing complex algorithms in real hardware

  • Ability to obtain Special Access Program (SAP) clearances

    Education:

  • Required: BS with a major in Engineering, Physics, Math, or other related field

  • Desired: MS or PhD in Engineering, Physics, Math, or other related field
