Job Description: The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) Program is seeking a Sr. Logistics Specialist. WAAS is a safety-critical system consisting of the equipment and software that augments the Department of Defense (DoD) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Positioning Service (SPS). The WAAS provides a Signal-in-Space (SIS) to WAAS Users to support phases of flight from En Route to Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV)-200. The broadcast SIS provides three functions: (1) a ranging function, which improves service availability and continuity; (2) differential GPS corrections, which improve positioning accuracy; and (3) integrity monitoring, which improves safety. Data from the GPS satellites are received at widely dispersed sites, referred to as Wide-area Reference Stations (WRSs). The data collected by the WRSs is forwarded to Wide-area Master Stations (WMSs). All WRS data is processed at the WMSs to determine satellite signal integrity, compute satellite clock and ephemeris corrections and associated residual errors for all monitored satellites as well as compute ionospheric delay corrections. In addition to providing integrity information on GPS satellites, WAAS verifies the integrity of its own data broadcast and takes any necessary action to ensure that the SIS meets the WAAS performance requirements.
The WAAS Depot is responsible for replacement and repair of all WAAS baseline equipment (LRU level) for approximately 50 sites across US, Canada, and Mexico. The Sr. Logistics Specialist is responsible for ensuring that all requests for field hardware support are handled in accordance with FAA field requests, coordinating meetings between Raytheon and FAA logistics team, and ensuring that Raytheon team is evaluating field and repair data to proactively identify improvements to repair processes, issues with low spares, support obsolescence evaluations, and general process improvements. The WAAS Sr. Logistics Specialist is also responsible for doing similar activities for the much smaller WAAS GEO Service Lease contract with 4 sites of specialized equipment outside of the WAAS baseline.
