Are you interested in developing innovative weapon systems for the US and our allies?

The Guidance and Navigation Systems Department within the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) Center at Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) in Tucson, AZ, has several positions available in the area of navigation systems engineering and design. The Navigation Systems Engineer will apply knowledge of software and hardware related to integrated Inertial Navigation System (INS) / Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation products. The engineer will be involved in the design, analysis, integration, and test of INS/GPS subsystems for missile applications.

The Senior Systems Engineer II (GNC Engineer) is responsible for development and implementation of navigation algorithms and software, modeling and simulation of hardware/software navigation components, requirements and interface definition, hardware/software integration testing, and flight performance analysis. The individual will work as a part of an Integrated Product Team structure guiding the successful completion of major programs. In this role, the engineer will interact with senior subject matter experts for advice and will represent the organization as a primary technical contact for navigation.

Key Responsibilities (Essential Functions):
Develop and implement missile navigation algorithms and flight software
Analyze navigation performance in simulation, laboratory, and flight testing
Resolve navigation system anomalies observed in simulation or test environments

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.

Required Education, Skills and Experience:
  • BS degree from an ABET accredited institution in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering.
