The Hardware Engineering Center (HWEC) is an engineering organization that focuses on product producibility and mission assurance. It is a vital link in the integrated product development process that allows Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems to introduce reliable new products faster, better, and more economically.
HWEC seeks a motivated Optical Designer/Analyst willing to apply their knowledge and experience in optical design, analysis, integration and test to the development of advanced optical imaging telescopes, spectrometers, sensors, and special test equipment. Tasks will involve innovative optical design for new space and airborne programs with supporting tolerance and alignment simulation. Other supporting responsibilities may include stray light analysis, image simulation, radiometry, and analyzing impact of supplier non-conformances throughout the length of the program. This position involves working in a collaborative environment, at times contributing to multiple programs as a technical resource, and providing leadership and optical oversight where required. This engineer must be able to own all aspects of the optical design.
