Lockheed Martin Low Observables Design & Analysis Engineer, Orlando, FL in Orlando, Florida
The candidate will be responsible for conducting materials RF testing and Radar Cross Section testing at RAMLab facility. They should be familiar with mounting UUT’s in an indoor range and with the collection and reduction of RCS test data. In addition, the candidate should be familiar with the measurement of the electrical constitutive parameters of materials utilizing coax, waveguide, free space and NRL Arch measurement setups. Experience with the use of a Focused Beam system such as the one produced by the Georgia Tech Research Institute is also desirable.
Low Observable (LO) Engineers are charged with the task of assuring that IR and RF signatures of weapons and related platforms and subsystems are defined, minimized to specified levels, and controlled through the design, production and fielding phases of development. This requires the performance of design analyses, and related trade studies pertaining to material selection, platform configuration and IR and RF phenomenology. Low signature design solutions are coordinated and managed with the various program disciplines and with associated suppliers. Verification of platform low observable characteristics are achieved via comprehensive RCS testing conducted at both closed indoor ranges and outdoor test facilities.
Candidates for LO Engineer positions may have various experience and skill set backgrounds ranging from EO expertise to RF and MMW scattering phenomena. Knowledge of complex low observable design and material technologies is valuable. Specific knowledge of radar absorbing material, paints, seals, and their respective corrosion resistant properties is of interest. Nose and conformal radome design and design awareness of radome, antenna and platform RF interactions is also valuable.
Candidate must possess a Secret clearance at a minimum. At least one SAR clearance with a current background investigation, SSBI, is required.
