The COBRA DANE radar sensor is a ground-based, computer-driven, L-band phased array radar located at Eareckson Air Station (AS) (EAS) on Shemya, Alaska (AK). Its primary mission is Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (MD) with a secondary mission of Space Situational Awareness (SSA). Operational control for the COBRA DANE radar sensor is under the United States Strategic Command and supported by Air Force Space Command. This Program will deliver world class Operations, Maintenance and Support (OM&S) and Depot and Sustainment (D&S) for the COBRA DANE (CD) phased array radar. Raytheon’s experience in support of COBRA DANE and other large/sophisticated high power radar systems provides the high technological capability, foundation, and infrastructure required, along with the corporate resources to deliver continuous successful COBRA DANE mission performance.

As the Deputy Chief Engineer, you will develop long term (10+ year) roadmaps with the intent to grow the business pipeline and ultimately increase bookings and sales while maximizing customer benefit with invested resources. This role will partly achieve these successes by the creation of written artifacts that clearly articulate considerations, alternatives, and recommendations via white papers, written technical roadmaps, ROMs, feasibility studies. Because of this, the candidate must possess exemplary soft skills including collaboration, communication, and writing skills. The candidate should possess extensive technical background in radar, hardware, software, and logistics. They will work with the COBRA DANE end users and engineers to determine potential projects that provide maximum benefit to the customer.
