Job Description

At Boeing, we innovate and collaborate to make the world a better place. From the seabed to outer space, you can contribute to work that matters with a company where diversity, equity and inclusion are shared values. We’re committed to fostering an environment for every teammate that’s welcoming, respectful and inclusive, with great opportunity for professional growth. Find your... future with us.

This is Boeing: each of us is an innovator on a mission to connect, protect, explore, and inspire. From seabed to outer space, you’ll learn and grow, contributing to work that shapes the world. Find your future with us.

The Boeing Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) program area is working on several new development efforts for the Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC-3) RF seeker and is looking for an experienced Radar Seeker System Engineer to support these efforts at the Boeing Jetplex facility in Huntsville, Alabama.

Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) PAC-3 program is an air-defense, missile system designed to intercept tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and advanced aircraft where Boeing is the original engineering manufacturer of the seeker. Boeing’s radar seekers provide target data to the PAC-3 missile which enables it to acquire, intercept, and destroy threats using hit-to-kill technology. The PAC-3 Seeker team is a cross functional, highly skilled, motivated group embracing the beliefs that focused safety, execution, and lean manufacturing and business practices will secure our future, all while driving our product to be the seeker of choice for the PAC-3 program and future generations of weapon systems.

Position Responsibilities:
• Develop algorithms for radar signal processing techniques such as Kalman filtering, probabilistic and statistical modeling, and measurement processing from pulsed-doppler waveforms.
• Design algorithms that process signal returns into discriminated targets and track targets through mission timeline.
• Define system performance requirements and ensure interface definition supports various functional components of the seeker’s and missile’s architecture.
• Conduct analysis to optimize total system-of-systems performance or system architecture as applied to algorithmic functionality pertaining to the acquisition and tracking of targets.
• Analyze seeker simulation data to identify areas for improvement and guide recommendations for system robustness in the presence of challenging operational environments.
• Analyze algorithm performance with a focus on survivability, vulnerability, and susceptibility to identify necessary modifications to ensure mission success.
• Review and modify the application of general digital signal processing techniques to the processing of reradiated signal content to ensure accurate signal characteristic identification.
• Mentor early-career engineers and inexperienced DSP/algorithm engineers through regular knowledge transfer.

In order to meet security standards and protocols, all work is performed onsite in Huntsville, AL.

This position requires the ability to obtain U.S. Security Clearance, for which the U.S. Government requires U.S. Citizenship. A final U.S. secret clearance pre-start is required.

Basic Qualifications (Required Skills/Experience):
• Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited course of study in engineering, engineering technology (includes manufacturing engineering technology), chemistry, physics, mathematics, data science, or computer science.
• 5+ years of experience in Digital Signal Processing or Digital Communications algorithms and techniques (equalization, turbo/viterbi coding/decoding, channel estimation, filter design, resampling theory, etc.).
• 5+ years of experience with RADAR systems analysis or design.
• Experience with MATLAB for data analysis or modeling and simulation.

Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):
• Experience in digital signal processing theory, including the application of fundamental digital signal processing techniques.
• Experience in pulse Doppler radar system architectures and design/test practices.
• Experience working with operating radar systems and Electronic Warfare designs and testing.
• Knowledge of linear signal theory, Fourier transforms, and communication theory.
• RF, electrical transmission, signal processing and modeling in MATLAB.
• System test experience including test design, implementation, and execution for breadboard and brassboard hardware.
• Experience working in a fast-paced, independent research and development (IRAD) environment.
• Familiarity with multiple programming languages and development environments (C++, ADA, Python, etc.) in an Agile environment.
• Experience in formal technical writing (i.e. Whitepapers, Tech-Notes, Technical Journals, and Research Reports).
• Experience in Technology Readiness Level (TRL) maturation of novel technologies and concepts.

Typical Education & Experience:

Lead (level 4): Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 9 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (e.g. PhD+4 years' related work experience, Master+7 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.

Senior Lead (level 5): Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 14 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (e.g. PhD+9 years' related work experience, Master+12 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.

Principal (level 6): Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 20 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (e.g. PhD+15 years' related work experience, Master+18 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
