Job Description

We are looking for an ELECTRICAL ANALOG DESIGN ENGINEER for our Danbury, CT facility to provide analog electrical design solutions and technical support to novel and challenging projects of varying size throughout their life cycle stages. You will be joining an organization with a distinguished space-based EO/IR heritage of scientific and national security. You will contribute to the development of complex high reliability electrical designs in support of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions on a variety of platforms. These platforms present unique design challenges operating over the harsh environments of space including extreme EMI environments, total dose induced radiation parametric degradation effects, single event effects associated with high energy space born particles, space charging of surfaces and electro-static discharge events. Your role will be to provide analog design solutions and troubleshooting support for varied high reliability space & military applications including:

  • power supply design,
  • focal plane technologies
  • electro-optical instrument design,
  • motor drive applications
  • servo-system applications
  • low noise preamplifier design,
  • high bandwidth signal processing applications
  • high accuracy position measurement
  • low jitter thermal control
  • high accuracy temperature/telemetry measurement systems

You will work on state of the art Military and Space hardware product lines involving analog, digital, and electro-optical technologies used for laser warning devices, CCD & MEMS based attitude sensors, and complex motion control & measurement systems. You should be able to demonstrate strong analog design skills and be able to assume a lead electrical engineering role as it relates to both the support of legacy products and development of new designs.

Additional responsibilities include:

  • Review and evaluation of customer requirement documents
  • Complex analog design including simulation, system/component modeling, signal integrity analysis, component & system level power/stress analysis and stability analysis
  • Worst case circuit performance/functional analysis over mission life & environment extremes
  • Analog design of deliverable ship set hardware and internal Special Test Equipment
  • Validation testing support
  • Work with program teams to develop design concepts, define and perform trades, develop system performance models, and decompose and flow down system requirements to lower level electrical designs
  • Prepare and present material for formal design reviews and customer meetings
  • Provide technical support to proposal activities

Qualification: Required

  • Demonstrated lead electrical design experience
  • Experience writing/deriving requirements and generating verification plans
  • Experience writing technical reports and generating technical presentations


  • Experience in high reliability space, DoD airborne & ground systems, mission analysis, and government military program contracts
  • Experience with high accuracy precision measurement techniques (i.e. LVDTs, strain gages, inductosyns, capacitance based position & synchronous demodulation)
  • Focal plane experience and familiarity with quad cells, CCDs, photodiodes, etc.
  • Power electronics and motor drive design/analysis experience
  • Experience using DOORS requirements management tool
  • General familiarity with optical metrology technologies and techniques as related to electrical design applications
  • Applied use of standard electrical engineering analysis and documentation software (i.e. PSPICE, Hyperlynx, Matlab, Mathcad, Orcad, Allegro, Visio and CreoView



Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with a minimum of 10 years of related experience or Master’s degree in electrical engineering with a minimum of 7 years of related experience
