Job Description

Boeing is seeking an Electronics Controls Engineer for the Design Engineering team on the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) missile-defense program. The Design Engineering team is responsible for designing the PAC-3 RADAR seeker upgrades and next generation concepts, as well as supporting production and special test equipment design. Boeing has a multi-yearcontract to develop, test, and manufacture the PAC-3 RADAR seeker. This program encompasses concurrent design, test and manufacturing as new upgrades are incorporated into production. This long-term program is rapidly growing in Huntsville due to design updates, production growth, and Boeing facilities consolidations.


The Electronics Controls Engineer needs to be knowledgeable in control theory, electronic control circuitry, and have past experience using Matlab SimuLink tools. It would be preferred for the candidate to have experience in Gimbal or robotics design.
