Raytheon Technologies Senior Principal Systems Engineer in McKinney, Texas

About Us:

At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, by combining our vast resources and investments, we are able to dedicate ourselves to solving mission-level vs. product-level customer challenges – together we can anticipate more, move faster and make a bigger impact on the big picture.

Job Summary:

We are currently seeking a Senior Principal Systems Engineer to join the Multi-Function Radio Frequency System (MFRFS) Systems Engineering team in McKinney, TX. The MFRFS program is primarily an Army funded program specializing in the creation of compact stationary and on-the-move ground-based radars, which search and track a variety of ground and airborne targets. These technologies are paramount for early-warning systems, missile defense, and offensive counter-measures that help keep the warfighter safe. In particular, this job assignment will be with the algorithms development / modes team on the MFRFS program.

Therein, the Senior Principal Systems Engineer will be a member of a highly-visible team of engineers supporting systems engineering, algorithms development, and test expertise to the radar systems program. The Senior Principal Systems Engineer will also regularly interface with customers, the Systems Integration and Testing (SI&T), Software, Firmware, Whole Life, and Built-In-Test teams to ensure that proper design algorithms will be implemented properly and can have interoperable use on the Ku-band Radio Frequency System (KuRFS) radar product suite.

There's no such thing as a perfect candidate, so don't hold back. Your qualifications could add tremendous value to our team. Our customers come from all different backgrounds, and so do our employees. If you're passionate about what you could accomplish here, we'd love to hear from you.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:

• Algorithm development as it relates to complex subject material such as On-the-move motion compensation, Tracking, Navigation, Electronic Protection (EP), Electronic Attack (EA), Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR), Machine Learning, Automatic classification, or other heavy signal processing work

• Expert in radar signal processing, Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and complex mathematical modeling

• Developing complex radar processing modes and making sure they are interoperable within the KuRFS radar system and with other already operating radar modes

• Interfacing with the SI&T, Software, Firmware, Whole Life, and Built-In-Test teams to ensure algorithms developed are implemented properly

• Ability to interface with customers / upper management and hold meetings and to be part of Technical Interchange Meetings (TIMs), and present therein

• Properly document progress made in terms of simulation enhancements

• Ability to generate Intellectual Property with limited supervision, it is expected to be an “out-of-the-box” thinker who can tackle very difficult problems

• Need to be able to come up to speed with program related duties very quickly and have independent positive contribution almost at program start

• Developing Monte-Carlo based radar simulations and other analysis tools to augment the algorithms design and prove their viability

• Ability to grasp and utilize inherent program’s radar processing tools very quickly

• Properly document progress made in terms of simulation enhancements

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.

  • Algorithms development

  • Existing IP / conference papers

  • Advanced radar topics such as Automatic Target Recognition, ISAR, EP, EA, Tracking, Navigation, DSP, Machine Learning, and/or On-the-move motion compensation

    Required Education:

    Master’s Degree in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)

    Qualifications We Value:

    • Multiple MS degrees or a PhD in Engineering

    • Multiple IP disclosures and / or conference presentations

    • SME in the area of radar processing and its algorithms design

    • Experience with clutter and multipath mitigation

    • Experience with On-the-move motion compensation especially using non-collocated i.e. distributed array architectures

    • Radar signal processing and digital signal processing

    • Kalman Tracking, neural networks, radar performance tracking experience

    • ISAR, SAR, EP, EA, interference detection experience

    • Configuration control / management

    • Interacting with other groups on a large program and with customers

    • Creating automated regression and testing scripts

    • Simulation validation and verification

    • Working in a fast-paced team-oriented environment

    • Self-motivated, proactive problem-solver with good technical and written communication skills
