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 works 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 includes: design of Radio Frequency, Microwave and Millimeter Wave circuits, components or modules for use in radar or communication systems and measurement of subsytems using antenna test techniques, equipment and facilities.
