Join MITREs Enterprise Capability and Analysis department (P411) supporting the DoD projects in Global Flight Operations and Resilient Systems Development.  Our team of highly skilled technical staff lead the development and implementation of resilient, secure capabilities to support our customers most crucial missions in airspace operations and weapons systems security. 




MITRE is seeking a Systems Engineer with knowledge in aircraft navigation avionics systems/capabilities to include aircraft architectures. This position contributes to the technical team assisting USAF aircraft platform compliance to worldwide civil airspace standards. Aircraft navigation avionics systems include Precision/Non-Precision Approach and Landing capabilities, PBN capabilities, and enabling systems. In addition, the candidate will support the development of requirements and addressing USAF airworthiness certification criteria of avionics systems. Knowledge of current civil avionics standards, ability to evaluate an aircrafts level of compliance, ability to interpret aircraft architecture diagrams, and analysis of navigation system architectures to evaluate performance to requirements is required. It is desired the applicant have working knowledge of MIL-HDBK-516/DO-178 for the design and verification of avionics software. 




Key Functions:



  • The applicant will work in the Global Flight Operations Engineering group supporting the US Air Force (USAF) Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) work Program.

  • The system engineer shall have knowledge of current civil avionics standards, such as FAA, RTCA, ICAO, EUROCONTROL, specifically in the fields of Performance Based Navigation, and Precision Approach and Non-Precision Approach and Landing Systems, and be able to successfully evaluate an aircrafts level of compliance.

  • The applicant shall be able to interpret aircraft architecture diagrams and provide guidance on best-value implementations of aircraft navigation capabilities and satisfaction of related requirements

  • DO-178 guidance, objectives, and process for the design and verification of software used in airborne equipment. Analysis in support of these objectives is used to determine if and what criteria used by USAF platforms is sufficient for civilian airspace interoperability and to provide guidance to equipment developers and platforms in software assurance practices and processes.

  • The applicant shall be able to analyze navigation system architectures to determine if total system error performance is sufficient for meeting PBN requirements. Attendance and participation at national and international standard meetings is expected. Successful written and verbal interaction and communication with aircraft operators and other Department of Defense agencies is imperative. Additionally, the systems engineer will contribute to the technical evaluation of avionics equipment for purchase by aircraft platform offices.
