Electrical Engineer II - RF Component Engineer

Electrical Engineer II: RF Component Engineer

We have an opportunity for a RF component engineer within the Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, Electrical Design directorate. The person in this role will work closely with the Antenna and Microwave Department which designs, develops and integrates a number of different products and technologies relative to the front end of radar systems.

The RF component Engineer will be an interface between the design engineers and the customer’s parts engineer organization. The RF Component Engineer will support a variety of program and customers and be responsible for critical supplier relationships. The individual must have knowledge of RF test procedures and be familiar with a variety or RF components. The individual will work with design engineers, test engineers, suppliers as well as factory engineers to optimize the component selection through the Parts and Materials Review Board (PMCB) both internal to Raytheon as well as with our customers. The candidate will use their knowledge of failure mechanisms and effects to aid in the root cause/corrective action in device/subassembly component related failures. Some travel to integration sites, plus customer and subcontractor facilities, may be required.

Required Skills:
  • Experience in parts or component engineering (component selection, DoD parts documentation as well as broad knowledge of electrical component technologies)
  • U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.
Desired Skills
  • Ability to obtain a secret security clearance
  • Experience with a wide application of technical theories and concepts related to system logistics/sustainment/production activities/obsolescence/parts qualification
  • Experience in Reliability Prediction or Failure Analysis
  • Experience in preparing customer and/or management level briefings
  • Ability to understand and apply new concepts quickly, while organizing, scheduling and coordinating work phases accurately in a rapidly evolving environment
  • Experience in component/circuit design
  • Proven multi-disciplinary technical skills to engage peers and leaders across the various Cross
  • Business Teams and Integrated Business Teams
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to build a trusting relationship with the customer
  • Experience in technical writing, proposal writing, and oral presentations
  • Existing Secret clearance or ability to obtain a Secret clearance with interim clearance
Required Education:
  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering plus minimum of 2 years direct experience OR Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering
Bring your talent and skills to the following Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) group:

Electrical Design Directorate (EDD):
EDD provides engineering design, integration and production to core radar and combat system competencies (process and control, integration and test, power systems, receivers and exciters, antennas and microwave subassemblies).

EDD has responsibility for the following areas:

  • Phased Array Radar design – RF/microwave antenna design
  • Power and Electronic systems design
  • Receiver & Exciter Design - REX System Analysis, Exciter Design, Receiver Design,
  • Low Noise Sources, Simulation and Modeling, Metrology, Integration and Test
  • Mixed Signal Design - Receiver A/D Converters, Direct Digital Converters, Receiver D/A
  • Converters, Digital Waveform Generators, Mixed Signal CCAs, Mixed Signal Modules and Subsystems
  • Digital Hardware - Subsystem/Module Digital Circuits, FPGA/ASICs, Beam Steering, Mixed Process/Photonics/Sensors, COTS systems, COTS interfaces, Subsystem Development, VME/PCI
  • Digital Systems – System Trades, Architecture, Embedded Processing
  • Software Design - Real-time Signal Processing, Beam Steering, Embedded Software
  • Photonics Design – Fiber Optic Communication, Optical Control
Within EDD, the Antenna and Microwave Department has responsibility for the following:
  • Antenna Systems - Antenna System Analysis, Array Analysis, Electromagnetic Analysis, Array Calibration and BITE, Signal Level Analysis, Assembly, Integration and Test
  • Antenna/Microwave Subsystems - Phased Array Subsystems, High Power Subsystems, Antenna Subsystems, Signal Level Analysis, Subsystem Integration and Test
  • RF/Microwave Design - Simulation and Layout, Passive Circuits, Amplifiers, Ferrites, Component Test, Material Characterization
  • Antenna Design - Radiating Elements, Reflectors, Feedhorns, Radomes/Frequency Selective Surfaces, Simulation and Layout, Antenna Test
Members of the Antenna and Microwave Department hold key roles in all of Raytheon IDS’s programs. An example of work performed in this department is phased array antenna design – and the analysis of array performance, including time side lobes, noise figure, noise floor, and other parameters. This work requires an engineer familiar with the use of numerical modeling techniques and tools to determine the impact of array performance on radar or communication system performance. Working in this department involves close cooperation and communication with other engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical and software. Engineers in this department also follow their designs into production supporting manufacturing operations and system integration and test functions. Teamwork, trust and accurate results are essential to the success of working in this department within the EDD.

Other examples of work performed within the Antenna and Microwave Department includes: Design of Radio Frequency, Microwave and Millimeter Wave circuits, components or modules for use in radar or communication systems and measurement of subsystems using antenna test techniques, equipment and facilities.
