If you can answer "yes" to these questions, we want to talk to you!
We are Raytheon Missile Systems, a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civil markets where you’ll be part of a diverse global team working together to solve some of the most demanding challenges on the planet.We are seeking an engineering professional with academic experience in navigation, guidance, control or aerodynamic systems to develop systems for air vehicle applications.
The Guidance, Navigation and Control Center (GNC) is responsible for all requirements, trade studies, algorithm designs and performance analyses required to develop RMS products that navigate and guide successfully. The Center's scope includes aerodynamic analysis, wind tunnel testing and model development: flight control system design and analysis; servo and control actuation system design and analysis; strap down and GPS aided navigation system design and analysis; target state estimation, midcourse and terminal guidance design optimization as well as system performance analysis.
The Senior Systems Engineer I is responsible for conducting missile guidance, navigation, air vehicle, control system, embedded software and missile performance analysis and is an entry level position for Ph.D. graduates. Missile guidance tasks include guidance law development, state estimation, sensor fusion, trajectory shaping and miss distance performance optimization. Air vehicle design tasks include aerodynamics/stability & control, kinematic and propulsion system trade studies including computational fluid dynamics analysis, wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic model development. Navigation tasks include system trade studies, component modeling of inertial measurement units (IMU) and global positioning systems (GPS), as well as simulation of navigation algorithms particularly Kalman filters. Control system tasks include autopilot, control actuation system, mechanism and gimbaled seeker servo design. Embedded software includes real-time GNC algorithm development for missile system products. Missile performance analysis includes model development, system optimization and Monte Carlo assessments with expected system disturbances.
