Sr. Principal Systems Engineer

Raytheon (


  full-time   employee

United States

Do you consider yourself a ?systems thinker? always thinking of new and innovative ways of doing things?

Raytheon Missile Systems is looking for experienced systems security engineers (SSE) interested in developing Secure Processing Solutions in our new Secure Processing Solutions Product Center (SPS PC).The SPS PC develops and delivers System on a Chip (SoC) Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) designed to meet program requirements. The SPS PC also works with programs to integrate the processors into the final system solution.

Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) is looking for SSE?s interested in developing and applying their skills by providing secure processing solutions. SPS PC products are projected for use in numerous programs across Raytheon. The SPC PC provides an exciting new opportunity to work in the development of SoC ASICs and their applications that have a significant impact across Raytheon and the DoD. This opportunity provides the accomplished SSE with the opportunity to apply their expertise across diverse mission areas in all phases of product development including concept, design, development, integration, qualification, and production. RMS has implemented a SoC ASIC development capability based on benchmarking of industry leading best practices.

This position expands your skills in the development of system security solutions to best meet customer needs by establishing and documenting detailed systems requirements and allocation to sub-systems, in turn requiring engaging other engineering disciplines to determine requirement compliance during system design, development, integration, and qualification. Applications of this technology also apply to diminishing manufacturing sources of supply (obsolescence) or the application of this new technology to existing products.

The Advanced Systems Design Center within the System Design & Performance Directorate has systems design responsibility for Advanced Missile Systems as well as support for programs within the Naval and Area Mission Defense, Air Warfare Systems, Land Warfare Systems, and Air and Missile Defense Systems product lines. The center is currently looking for experienced Systems Security Engineers to develop systems design solutions for programs in the early stages of the product life cycle.
