The Engineering, Sciences and Technology (ES&T) organization pushes the boundaries of innovation, redefines engineering capabilities, and drives advances in various sciences. Our team is chartered with providing the skills, innovative technologies to develop, design, produce and sustain optimized product lines across the sector while providing a decisive advantage to the warfighter. Come be a part of our mission!

The Resilient Open PNT Systems (ROPS) program is a new effort to respond to customer interest in a more open-standards approach to an Embedded GPS Inertial system located in Woodland Hills, CA. As it will be a high-priority, compressed-timeline, development effort, there is a need for a strong technical leader. In addition, the complexity of understanding and adapting current EGI-M program status and efforts, while protecting company IP, will pose additional challenges. This program will require development of advanced technologies, independent decision-making, and coordination with long-range strategic objectives.
