Raytheon Missile Systems is the world’s largest missile producer. RMS is responsible for the design, test, manufacture, and support of weapon systems equipping the US warfighter and our international allies to meet a large variety of demanding mission requirements. Every missile system produced by Raytheon contains advanced electrical subsystems. These enable target detection, target tracking, guidance, navigation, signal processing, and communication in extreme battle-field environments. The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) is responsible for all aspects of these subsystems’ design, test, and production.
The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) Subsystems Center (SSC) is currently searching for an Electrical Engineer with experience in electro-optics
This candidate shall be able to perform a broad range of Electro Optical (EO) subsystem engineering tasks related to infrared advanced missile seekers and guidance subsystems: develop EO sensor system simulations and conduct analyses to characterize EO performance for developmental and production deliverable seeker assets based on laboratory data; develop requirements and conduct requirement validation of EO subsystems based on analysis and/or testing; develop and conduct EO subsystem trade studies; work across multiple engineering disciplines including EO hardware design (detector, optics, cryogenic systems, opto-mechanical), video electronics, EO integration and verification, video signal processing, missile simulation and analysis, and system engineering to establish multi-disciplinary technical solutions for EO products which ensure design integrity and operational performance under all applicable environments.
