Serves as the CTES (CEAFAR2 Threat Emitter System) technical subject matter expert (SME) to support the fielding of a series of emitters representing potential military threat systems and provide systems engineering support during integration into ranges in the western United States. The emitter systems are intended to be transportable/ relocatable as required to simulate intelligence based threat laydowns. The emitters will be a combination of open and closed-loop systems. They are Phased-Array based emitter systems.
Provides expert systems/equipment analysis and recommendations to leadership and engineering teams.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities:
Serves as a systems engineer working with various parties to field CTES systems ensuring the following elements are addressed:
1. Identify and document the impacts of system level open-loop emitter and closed-loop radar requirements for range integration to include power, communication, instrumentation and Red and White Forces command & control.
2. Validate existing power, communications, instrumentation and command and control (C2) range interface control documents (ICDs) and update/re-create as necessary.
3. Develop remote operations concept and infrastructure requirements.
4. Support development of the Concept of Employment & Life-Cycle Support.
5. Work with the to document range modernization needs and generate cost estimates to upgrade the ranges to meet CTES needs.
6. Recommends tests, equipment modifications, and corrections to design deficiencies through evaluation of operational capability of systems/equipment and review of performance data against standards.
7. Serve as a Subject Matter Expert on Radar systems and subsystems to include timing and control, transmitters, waveforms, phased array antenna and elements, antenna pointing control loops, and Electro-magnetic propagation.
8. Work with other to identify, analyze, specify and develop ranges interfaces to the successful deployment of the CTES emitter systems.
Other Related Duties:
Assists in writing technical proposals, requirements definitions, test plans and other technical documentation. Follow systems engineering processes and procedures. Performs other related duties as required.
Research and analyze data such as customer design proposals, specifications and manuals to determine the feasibility of a design or application.
Devise appropriate tests to evaluate, debug and check systems. Document the results of complex analysis and design tasks.
Collaborate with customers to obtain test requirements, develops system requirements documents, acquisition and vendor statement of work documents, evaluation tests and summary reports.
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering, or a combination of formal education and experience equivalent to a four-year college degree.
Experience: At least five years of applicable RF / threat (electronic warfare systems) engineering experience.
Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Required for this Position:
Comprehensive knowledge of electronic warfare (EW) policy, doctrine, practices and capabilities combined with a thorough understanding of the analytical, evaluative, and administrative methods required for integration, development, and acquisition of training systems.
