The Systems Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is the central focus for Mission Systems Integration activities within Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems (IDS). The more than 1,100 employees of SADID provide requirements definition and design at the system, subsystem and component level every day in a collaborative environment which is characterized by respect for the individual, problem solving in a team setting, consensus oriented solutions, and results based recognition. Supporting this mission are teams providing domain expertise and creative solutions in surveillance, naval and missile defense based radar system design, sonar and undersea sensor system design, integrated air and missile defense systems engineering, command and control/battle management system design, combat system and platform architecture design and integration, operational analysis and simulation modeling research and development, software intensive system engineering, cyber solutions and algorithm development for signal processing, tracking and discrimination systems. SADID welcomes you to join our tradition of achieving excellence through thought and team work while leveraging individual diversity conducive to a flexible work schedule and environment.

Join this highly visible team and perform technically challenging assignments which will directly contribute to protecting our nation and our war fighters.

Are You Ready To Engineer a Safer World? The Operations Analysis and Simulation (OAS) Department is looking for Systems Engineers to conduct analyses and support programs across the IDS portfolio, including surface Navy, undersea Navy, missile defense sensors, interceptors, command and control, integrated air and missile defense systems and space surveillance systems. The work is classified and the candidate must have at least a DoD SECRET clearance.In our experience, diversity of talent and thought is what drives innovation and we are looking for motivated engineers with subject matter expertise on Missile Defense Agency (MDA) radars at our Schriever AFB, Colorado location. The Systems Engineer will work with a team of engineers and analysts on the system architecting, development, test and integration of a suite of MDA sensor models (e.g. AN/TPY-2, SBX, Cobra Dane, and UEWR) used for element and system level analysis and verification and validation. The Systems Engineer will lead system architecting of current state of sensor models and develop roadmap to improve tactical representation and alignment of software representations of real radars. This involves in-depth understanding of the MDA Radars and the dependencies of various features during implementation. The Systems Engineer will become an expert in sensor software configuration and setup, and may support remote installation of the models as well as support related test issues (some travel may be required).

Required Skills:

10+ years of experience in system/software engineering Subject Matter Expertise in one or more of the following radar systems (AN/TPY-2, SBX, Cobra Dane, UEWR)

Familiarity with distributed computing systems and/or real-time computing/messaging systems.
