Job Title: Radar Systems Engineer 3

Location: Plano, TX

Job Description:

Let's start with who we are: Advanced Systems & Technologies (AS&T) division specializes in developing disruptive, next-generation technologies for advanced radar systems, next-generation weapon systems, and other RF sensor technologies. What does that mean? It means that as the non-traditional 6th primed, we're developing entirely new clean sheet designs. We aren't designing upgraded parts of an existing system. We are immersed in technology and we are technology driven. Model Based Systems Engineering is part of our systems engineering DNA.

What's a day in the life like in this role? This is a radar systems engineering position, which is responsible for radar systems design and analysis, so the tasking is similar to what you've done before. But the difference is that you're working in a completely different culture and mission mindset. Our team sizes are smaller, allowing for collaboration, great ideas, and contribution from all levels in an agile product development environment. In other words, you're not stove-piped into one area, and instead can work the entire engineering lifecycle. You get to solve hard problems. Your day is spent working on new and exciting technology and methodology that hasn't been done before. You're inspired to do your best work every day, because what we do matters!

Essential Functions:

  • Radar system synthesis and conceptualization in a design-to-cost environment
  • Radar performance prediction in benign, cluttered and EA environment
  • Radar requirements definition, flow down and traceability
  • Radar system trade studies such as waveform, frequency, antenna configuration, phase noise, etc.
  • Present results during internal and external program meetings
  • Generate proposals and white papers for new business pursuits
  • Other duties as assigned


  • U.S. citizen
  • Existing DoD clearance with a current update; must be able to obtain additional clearances as required
  • BS degree in Engineering or Science
  • 5+ years' relevant experience in radar system requirements development, analysis, design, integration and test
  • RF background with a working knowledge of electronic scanned antennas, receivers, exciters and digital signal processing
  • Proficiency with Matlab or Python
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office products
  • Must be able to travel up to 20%; support field testing

Preferred Additional Skills:

  • Advanced degree
  • Radar system simulation and modeling is strongly preferred
  • DOORS experience
  • Millimeter wave radar, radar seeker design and analysis, and Risk Radar experience is preferred.
  • EVMS and Design-to-cost is preferred.
  • Excellent people skills, with experience leading and collaborating in a multi-disciplinary, diverse, and dynamic team environment.
  • Outstanding work ethic and commitment to organizational success
  • Excellent communication skills (written, verbal, & presentation)
