The ideal candidate would participate on a system level design team and contribute to module level definition, interface definition, control definition, hardware/software/FPGA partitioning and overall integration strategy.
The Embedded Hardware Group is responsible for designing, prototyping, procuring and testing, the hardware for the embedded controllers, vehicle sensors, human interface, control electronics and communication devices.
The design work will include researching / specifying components, schematic development, PCB layout guidance, board bring-up, interfacing and collaboration with other engineering groups (Firmware, Power, and Mechanical), and working with product management during product design cycles.
The Field Operations Communications Engineer will be part of a team operating a complex tactical communications system providing voice and data services in a sustained operation located overseas and CONUS.
The candidate should be a team player who is well versed in reading schematics and demonstrates knowledge of power distribution networks, signal integrity principals and equipment required to measure high speed digital communication signals.
Candidate must have knowledge of computers, radios, radio transmission fundamentals, RF theory and A/C power distribution systems as well as commercial and military interface and networking standards to include RS-232, RS-422, 1553, TCP/IP and UDP.
Utilize your knowledge to drive the design through the full board development cycle, from requirements gathering, creating block diagrams, schematics, drive the hardware design through CAD and simulate it to ensure the performance of the hardware is in line with the expected specification.
