Personnel will provide Systems, Mechanical, Electrical and Test Engineering support to the Armament Directorate EB. Armament Systems to be supported include air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles, guided and unguided bombs, cluster bomb units, nuclear payload guidance and control, directed energy systems, warheads, fuzes, seekers/sensors, ammunition, bomb racks, pylons, aerial targets, airborne test and air combat training and integrated instrumentation systems, radars, threat generators and simulators, Munitions Material Handling Equipment (MMHE), containers, and air base operability equipment.
Provide knowledge and experience in analyzing host aircraft/store compatibility requirements and developing interface control documents for captive carriage and release/launch of Armament Systems in compliance with MIL-STD-1760, MIL-STD-3014, MIL-A-8591, and Universal Armament Interface (UAI) protocols. This involves knowledge and experience in the mechanical, aerodynamic, electrical, logical, and logistical compatibility between US and foreign fighter/bomber/UAV aircraft, suspension and release equipment, and stores (including their embedded computer hardware and software systems). This also requires knowledge and experience with aircraft and store electrical power and avionics systems (i.e., seeker, sensors, fire control, mission computer, pilot/vehicle interface, stores management system, GPS, inertial navigation systems, control actuators). Knowledge and experience also required in the establishment and management of Interface Control Working Groups (ICWGs), and the development of Interface Control Plans (ICPs).
