Systems Integration, Verification and Validation (IV&V) Engineer / Task Lead / Test Director
The Systems Engineering, Integration, and Test (SEIT) Department within the Space and Airborne Systems Business Segment is involved in a wide variety of Systems IV&V activities for Raytheon’s Protected Satellite Communication Systems. The SEIT IV&V activities include all aspects of system integration and test in both laboratory and challenging environmental conditions including, but not limited to, temperature, vibration, salt/fog, lightning, humidity and reliability growth testing.
The SEIT IV&V organization also supports system architecture development, CONOPS development, system trade studies, requirements analysis and flow down to hardware/software configuration items; all of which lead to the final system integration, verification and validation. The department sections support a variety of communication system programs including Satellite Communication (SATCOM), line-of-sight (LOS) / beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) and networking for ground based, ship, submarine, and airborne platforms.
We are currently seeking experienced Systems IV&V engineer/leader to join our dynamic, diverse, and rapidly growing team.
