Lockheed Martin Systems Low Observables Engineer, Orlando FL in Orlando, Florida

A Low Observables (LO) Design and Analysis Engineer is required to participate in and strongly influence design decisions associated with complex Low Observable systems. The Low Observables Engineer must have significant experience in the design, integration, testing, and verification activities associated with the LO systems development. The LO Engineer will perform analysis of vehicle and component RCS predicted performance, including performance trade studies during the program design phase and analysis of measured data during integration and test. Development and management of the system signature design budget is required. Coordination of performance specification allocations to internal designers and suppliers is also required. The LO Engineer must also coordinate complex Low Observable design aspects with stakeholders including functional, integrated product team, program management, and customer organizations. A current Top Secret clearance is required.

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.


Basic Qualifications A current Top Secret clearance is required. Candidate should have prior experience with system RCS design, analysis, and testing through the program lifecycle. Prior experience utilizing Xpatch and employing Method of Moments analysis codes for RCS predictions is highly desired.
