The Products and Technology Center in the Electrical Subsystems Directorate is seeking an optical-mechanical design and analysis Engineering Fellow that is responsible for designing new and advanced optical sensors and seeker systems in support of new product development at Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS). The selected candidate will lead teams in defining optical-mechanical design solutions, being responsible for performance and cost and supporting these products through their development, implementation, verification, and maintenance. Additionally, they will be responsible for shaping the optical seeker development strategy for RMS, including road maps for Product Lines and new opto-mechanical related technologies. The candidate shall demonstrate expertise in all of the subsystems that are necessary for developing an optical sensor and seeker including experience in how these systems interact with the overall guidance unit. These include but not limited to expertise in structural design/analysis, system survivability in extreme environments, gimbal and mechanism design, bearing design/analysis, gimbal and mechanism dynamics, optical mounting and alignment concepts and system performance modeling.
The selected candidate will be required to effectively interact with engineers across multiple disciplines including systems, electro-optical subsystems, optics, opto-mechanics, detectors, cryogenics, Guidance Navigation and control (GNC), and electro-optical system test and verification. The selected candidate will be expected to effectively present their work in program and Business Unit reviews and to provide expert counseling and mentoring. They will be expected to lead teams and provide technical oversight and task delegation as appropriate. The customers of this position will include internal Raytheon personnel and programs, as well as external Government(s) personnel and programs. The selected candidate will work with the customer and engineering leadership to define design requirements to validate and to verify that hardware being designed is compliant with requirements.
As a Fellow, it is expected that the candidate work across Product Lines and Business Units as dictated by the critical needs of the Enterprise. Additionally, the Fellow will seek out and establish apprenticeships to enable a teaching culture at Raytheon Missile Systems. In this position, they must have exhibited a proven track record with national recognition of an electro-optical seeker architecture mindset in developing sensor products and working across a product’s life cycle. The candidate of choice will encompass a history of design innovation validated by patents and technical papers, serving as the expert through integration and qualification of electro-optical seekers, and leading Failure Investigation Teams in resolution to complex production sustainment issues and / or sensor anomalies.
