Job Description:
The Tactical Communications Systems Department within the Space and Airborne Systems Center is the primary source of VHF/UHF SATCOM Tactical Radio (TR) equipment to the Army and USAF. This team, based at Fort Wayne, is responsible for the Architecture, Specification, Development and Analysis of Mission Critical equipment in support of over the horizon mission communications. Some aspects of this work are classified.

The System Engineering group’s activities include; 1) developing coherent product specifications from multiple disparate source documents, 2) performing analysis of signals in space, receivers and transmitters, 3) developing simulations and analyzing the performance/impact of fielded equipment, 4) managing the requirements baseline and 5) ensuring all requirements are met.
This position is to plan, supervise the conduct of system/product performance analysis, requirements development, RF system/product architecture design, system/product development, system/product implementation and performance verification of various military ground and airborne communication products. The candidate also is responsible for the program’s Earned Value including generation and presentation of the quarterly Estimate At Completion (EAC) of the assigned Systems Engineering domain efforts.

The candidate must have a working knowledge of legacy military ground and airborne radio products, an understanding of digitally defined RF design architectures, architecture modularity and design reuse, and how to apply a common solution across a family of products. The candidate must have a strong technical background for HF, VHF, UHF or L-band military platform communication systems and their concept of operations. The candidate must have a strong working knowledge of radio architecture development and the applicability of military standards and publications. The candidate must have strong analytical skills to make metric based architecture trade decisions in order to provide the most robust mission solutions. The candidate will be responsible to lead and manage the system architecture solution implementation to an integrated team of system, hardware and software engineers to ensure the design and implementation reflects the architecture solution across a family of military ground and airborne radio products. The candidate must have prior experience as a Lead Engineer to lead a team of systems engineers in performing communication system performance analysis, and communication system/product architecture design and implementation for military digital RF systems/products. The candidate will be responsible for managing the collaboration of electronic data and information used by the program team for system analysis, performance, integration, validation and verification (IV&V). This candidate will be responsible for interfacing with various customers to address system operations, design concepts and performance in order to ensure that the mission effectiveness meets customer expectations for both new and existing capabilities.
