  • Aircraft integration activities such as Interface Control Working Groups (ICWG), interface management groups, aircraft integration meetings, and aircraft Systems Integration Laboratory (SIL) test activities to ensure an operator's perspective of aircraft integration and employment are successfully accomplished for weapon and carriage systems.
  • Airworthiness / flight clearance certification activities, to include: participation in testing, flight clearance, safe separation and jettison testing, development of documentation to support airworthiness certification by USAF, Department of the Navy (DoN) and platform certification agencies.
  • Evaluating and defining system and subsystem interfaces. These interfaces include but are not limited to aircraft interfaces, ground subsystem interfaces, and interfaces associated with participant interoperability within the network (characteristics of which include radio frequency (RF), link margin, RF bandwidth and baseband modulation).
  • Secret clearance to start able to obtain a TS/SCI.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS:

A Bachelor's degree (Electrical Engineering desired) and 10 years of related experience. In lieu of a degree an additional 4 years of experience in integration, flight test and T&E of aircraft weapons required.

ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS:

Successful candidate will have knowledge and experience in analyzing aircraft/store compatibility requirements and developing interface control documents for captive carriage and release/launch of Armament Systems in compliance with MIL-STD-1760, MIL-STD-3014, MIL-A-8591, and Universal Armament Interface (UAI) protocols.
