Raytheon Intelligence and Space (RIS) in Marlborough, MA, is seeking an experienced Air Traffic Control (ATC) Radar Systems Engineer to join the group as the Surveillance Chief Engineer to provide technical guidance for the various Air Traffic Systems (ATS) surveillance pursuits, programs, and product lines.
The Surveillance Chief Engineer will provide technical leadership of the ATS surveillance systems and business. This role spans programs including DASR, X-Band LPR(Skyler), Weather, ATNAVICS, Long Range Radar, LD-GCA, UK-based Mark 2 SSR, Mark 3 SSR, ATCBI-6 SSR, and IRADs. The Surveillance Chief Engineer will primarily support system design, requirements compliance, and technical decisions to meet customer requirements, mission and expectations.
The Surveillance Chief Engineer shapes technology, architecture, modeling and simulation decisions to ensure a knowledgeable and trained staff can support program technical needs. The Surveillance Chief Engineer must provide technical direction to the engineering members with a product line approach to the ATS radar family and having key expertise in signal processing algorithms, ability to perform tradeoffs to cost effectively optimize system performance, and able to analyze radar data and recognize site anomalies and design mitigation methods for unique system level and environmental effects. This technical leader must also present the technical face of Raytheon to the FAA, DoD and international partners and customers and be a recognized expert they can completely trust. This is a senior leadership position that requires 12 years of surveillance radar experience spanning all facets of radar development - architecture definition, systems engineering, modeling and simulation, implementation, integration and test, and site acceptance test. Knowledge of RF hardware, monopulse, reflector, fan-beam and active/passive phased array antenna systems, signal processing, real time software processing, mechanical engineering, EMI/NTIA/FAA compliance as well as support to government HERP, HERF, and HERO needs. Excellent communications skills are required to effectively work with stakeholders from various organizations (PMO, Leadership, FAA, Military Spectrum Management Offices, NTIA, and DOD).
Required Skills and Experience:
• Minimum 12 years of surveillance ATC/radar systems experience
• Experience in signal processing, radar system performance definition and analysis, analysis and optimization of radar systems, radar system architectures, modeling and simulation, calibration, spectrum analysis and control, Blake charts, waveform design, and built in test.
