The Advanced Electro-Optical and Mission Systems (AEO&MS) Department is seeking a senior level systems engineer with experience working on directed energy (DE) and/or laser weapon systems. The system engineer will be a technically sound engineer, committed to innovative, cost-effective solutions for DE and laser system applications. The candidate will work with other senior engineers and architects to enhance their skill sets by providing hands-on engineering support for design, development, integration, and verification of laser systems. Duties include develop/manage the laser system requirements; verification planning and coordination; assembly, preparation, and maintenance; troubleshooting; installation & checkout; software integration; IV&V; test data reduction and analysis. The candidate is an organized, objective, balanced decision maker, who supports technical reviews; guides engineering; coordinates designs; leads day-to-day operations; and represents engineering for the laser system on the program. The candidate ensures quality engineering work products, and collaborates with experts in various disciplines (e.g. manufacturing, supply chain, quality, specialty engineering, etc.) in the integration, test, and evaluation of DE & laser systems.
The individual is passionate about practical and effective application of Systems Engineering to laser system products, and technologies. The role encompasses support of architectural development of DE and laser systems from an IV&V standpoint, development of T&E strategies and plans leveraging modeling, analyses, simulations, and tests, at levels from qualification to acceptance. The candidate possesses career experience and technical acumen in physical architecture product technologies associated with laser capabilities. Areas of expertise include laser designs, output couplers, continuous/pulsed operation, coatings, beam shaping, adaptive optics, pointing control, gain media, free space/fiber/wave-guided systems, 3 & 4 level systems, single/multi-mode systems, mode locking, ultrafast systems, beam control, HW/SW development and integration of laser systems.
The ideal candidate possesses the ability to work both independently and as part of a team, with strong written and verbal communication and proficiency in analytical skills. The individual is also a motivated self-starter, leader, and participant in professional and community activities. The person must also be organized, detail oriented, with demonstrated strong judgment and decision making abilities; have a penchant to foster new technology and business growth; and a willingness to anticipate, drive and foster change management. Our organization is accountable for the engineering life cycle of programs, and execution of detailed IV&V plans for laser Systems. Our goal is ensuring successful program execution. Our team welcomes you to join our growing group of talented engineers.
