Raytheon Technologies Engineering Fellow - Low Observable in McKinney, Texas

Raytheon Intelligence & Space - Antenna Products Department is now accepting Resumes for a Low Observable (LO) Engineering Fellow.

Raytheon Engineering Fellows are respected and innovative leaders in their field with visibility and impact across the RI&S Business Unit. The candidate will reside within the Hardware Engineering Center (HWEC) Antenna Products (AP) department headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

The HWEC AP department is responsible for full-scope Independent Design, Verification & Validation (IV&V) solutions for sensor products, including architecture trades, design, development, integration, deployment, and sustainment of antenna systems and associated integrated system verification solutions.

The successful candidate will have significant domain expertise of Low Observable (LO) antennas, radomes, frequency selective surface (FSS), LO hardware integration and associated technologies, as well as proven leadership skills to effectively lead multi-disciplinary teams in proposals and program execution.

The candidate will have a solid foundation in antenna LO engineering with an in-depth understanding of antenna theory, phased arrays, RF hardware prototyping/fabrication as well as associated best practice tools and processes. As a Fellow, it is expected that the candidate work across Product Lines and Business Units as dictated by the critical needs of the Enterprise.

Additionally, the Fellow will seek out and establish apprenticeships to enable a teaching culture at RI&S.

The LO Engineering Fellow provides technical support to internal research and development (IRAD) and contracted research and development (CRAD) projects, helps drive technology development directions, and shape RF/LO technology development roadmaps. The selected candidate is expected to be fluent in computational electromagnetics. Candidates should be recognized experts in the design and development of state-of-the-art LO radomes, antennas and arrays.

Required Skills:

  • Minimum 12 years of related work experience in LO design, analysis and test

  • Strong background in the field of Electromagnetics and Radar Cross Section (RCS) reduction of radomes and antennas

  • Solid understanding of typical RF materials, modeling and use of applications

  • Solid understanding of antenna/phased array and LO engineering principles

  • Demonstrated ability to perform structured design processes, root-cause problem solving, and successful on-time / on-schedule task execution

  • Participate in advancing the state of the art with regard to LO design and analysis through continual innovation

  • Working knowledge of antenna/LO range test equipment, setup and calibration

Desired Skills:

  • 20+ years of related work experience in LO design, analysis and test

  • Working knowledge of industry design and analysis tools such as HFSS, Xpatch, SENTRi, CARLOS3D, RAMD2D, ACAD and MATLAB

  • RCS data process tools such as Knowbell and Pioneer

  • Excellent communication skills, as position requires interfacing with internal and external customers to report technical and scheduling status

  • Experience writing proposals including developing a technical solution, identifying risks and opportunities, and writing both technical and cost volumes

  • Experience running successful LO antenna development efforts that includes budget and schedule management, tasking, and review of technical products

Required Education:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering

  • Masters or PhD. In Electrical Engineering are strongly preferred
