As part of our recent merger with Blue Halo, Applied Technology Associates (ATA) is making substantial corporate investments to build out new mission area capabilities in Advanced Radio Frequency (RF) Systems. The Advanced Radio Frequency Systems (ARFS) group at ATA is dedicated to developing next-generation digital beamformed phased arrays for the U.S. warfighter. ARFS provides novel solutions to customer needs enabling multi-band, multi-mission capabilities in the telemetry, electronic warfare, and communication defense markets while leveraging commercially available technology. As an emerging technology area at ATA, the ARFS group is quickly growing capabilities based on a core set of personnel that has extensive experience developing and fielding RF systems for Department of Defense (DoD) customers.
A qualified candidate has a background and interest in RF signal processing and digital beamformed phased arrays using reconfigurable FPGA hardware. Target designs will be implemented on Xilinx radio-frequency system-on-chip (RFSOC) technologies using Zynq Ultrascale+ architectures.
ATA will provide related training and senior leadership, while availing testbed hardware, processing electronics, tools, and new equipment to support buildup and field test of advanced processing capabilities. The successful candidate will report as an engineer within ATA’s embedded systems group.
