Organizational Description:

Have you ever asked yourself why do we test our products? How much should we test our products? How much testing is enough? How to make test more affordable? Where is the most appropriate place to test our products? If you would like to be part of those decisions, then the Advanced Test Systems Engineering Center (ATSEC) is the place for you.

The Advanced Test Systems Engineering Center (ATSEC), within the Systems Test Directorate, is comprised of five departments and an engineering population of approximately 450+ employees, and produces over $300M+/year of delivered products. The ATSEC organization has the responsibility to grow and sustain the Systems Engineering competencies throughout all test activities, and to make test more affordable, credible, agile, and robust.

Within ATSEC, the Hardware in the Loop (HWIL) EO Systems Department has the responsibility to provide, develop, and maintain engineering development stations that operate real-time and closed-loop with the weapon’s hardware and software

Job Description:

Experienced level engineer position for an individual with educational and professional experience in the development, design, and implementation of hardware circuit card assemblies (CCA) and subsystems with an emphasis on the design of printed wiring boards (PWB) containing FPGA circuits and digital interfaces. Knowledge of analog design techniques, including operational amplifiers, data converters, and power regulator designs at the circuit card level is also desirable.
The individual will be responsible for the development, implementation, and utilization of circuit card designs to interface real-time and closed-loop interfaces with weapon subsystems in a way that provides an operationally relevant stimulus to allow for weapon development integration.
The designer will interface with Printed Wire Board (PWB) designers to oversee component placement, layout, routing, signal integrity, power distribution, grounding, and manufacture of designs. Designer will be responsible for test and integration of these designs into the larger HWIL systems.

The individual is expected to work within a diverse team environment on a variety of projects and receive direction from his/her lead. The individual will be required to provide development support throughout the product lifecycle, from initial concept to acceptance delivery to maintenance.
The individual is expected to work in accordance with the Systems Test directives and HWIL One Page Process to perform product design, development, implementation and maintenance.

  • Experience using Schematic Capture tools such as DxDesigner, Boardstation, or Cad
  • Experience using Spice and implementing high speed digital designs
  • Experience and knowledge developing requirements for CCAs

Desired Skills:
  • Working knowledge in common computer hardware interface and data protocols such as RS-422, USB, PCIe, etc.
  • 18+ months of professional experience designing digital or mixed signal Circuit Card Assemblies.
  • Experience in high speed interfaces using Gigibit Transceivers such as Rocket IO
  • Experience with Signal Integrity of digital signals including Grounding and shielding techniques
  • Working knowledge in the integration of computer hardware interfaces
  • Experience and knowledge developing requirements for Circuit Card Assemblies
  • Experience writing or integrating Firmware (VHDL or Verilog) a plus
  • Understanding of computer architecture and computer hardware optimization techniques
  • Working knowledge of Configuration Management principles, environments and tools Proficiency in Linux or Unix
  • Working knowledge and experience with configuration management tools such as Synergy, Subversion, or git
  • Working knowledge/course work of signal & image processing, digital communications, control theories, estimation theory and/or electro optics
  • Experience utilizing performance simulations, such as 6 Degrees Of Freedom (6DOF) or Integrated Flight Software (IFS)
  • Candidates must be able to develop technical solutions to complex problems that emphasize innovation, ingenuity, and creativity

Required Education (including Major):
  • Bachelor’s Degree (BS) or Master’s Degree (MS) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, Math or related fields required.

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance.
