Bring your talent and skills to the following IDS group:
Electrical Design Directorate (EDD)
EDD provides engineering design, integration and production to core radar, sonar, torpedo, and combat system competencies (process and control, integration and test, power systems, torpedo and sonar electronics, receivers and exciters, antennas and microwave subassemblies).
EDD has responsibility for the following areas:
Phased Array Radar design – RF/ microwave antenna design
Power and Electronic systems design
Receiver & Exciter Design - REX System Analysis, Exciter Design, Receiver Design,
Low Noise Sources, Simulation and Modeling, Metrology, Integration and Test
Mixed Signal Design - Receiver A/D Converters, Direct Digital Converters, Receiver D/A
Converters, Digital Waveform Generators, Mixed Signal CCAs, Mixed Signal Modules and Subsystems
Digital Hardware - Subsystem/Module Digital Circuits, FPGA/ASICs, Beam Steering, Mixed Process/Photonics/Sensors, COTS systems, COTS interfaces, Subsystem Development, VME/PCI
Digital Systems – System Trades, Architecture, Embedded Processing
Software Design - Real-time Signal Processing, Beam Steering, Embedded Software
Photonics Design – Fiber Optic Communication, Optical Control
Opportunities currently exist within EDD’s Antenna and Microwave Department.
The Antenna and Microwave Department has responsibility for the following:
•Antenna Systems - Antenna System Analysis, Array Analysis, Electromagnetic Analysis, Array Calibration and BITE, Signal Level Analysis, Assembly, Integration and Test
•Antenna/Microwave Subsystems - Phased Array Subsystems, High Power Subsystems, Antenna Subsystems, Signal Level Analysis, Subsystem Integration and Test
•RF/Microwave Design - Simulation and Layout, Passive Circuits, Amplifiers, Ferrites, Component Test, Material Characterization
•Antenna Design - Radiating Elements, Reflectors, Feedhorns, Radomes/Frequency Selective Surfaces, Simulation and Layout, Antenna Test
Members of the Antenna and Microwave Department hold key roles in all of Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) programs.
An example of work performed in this department is phased array antenna design – and the
analysis of array performance, including time side lobes, noise figure, noise floor, and other parameters. This work requires an engineer familiar with the use of numerical modeling techniques and tools to determine the impact of array performance on radar or communication system performance.
Working in this department involves close cooperation and communication with other engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical, software.
Engineers in this department also follow their designs into production supporting manufacturing operations and system integration and test functions. Teamwork, trust and accurate results are essential to the success of working in this department within the Electrical Design Directorate.
Other examples of
work performed within the Antenna and Microwave department include: design of Radio Frequency, Microwave and Millimeter Wave circuits, components or modules for use in radar or communication systems and measurement of subsystems
using antenna test techniques, equipment and facilities.
