Organizational Description:

The Test Equipment and Environments Center (TE&E) is an organization within the Systems Integration & Test Directorate comprised of 20 departments and an engineering population of approximately 3,100 people, and over $350M per year of delivered products. The TE&E organization has the responsibility to grow and sustain the Systems Engineering competencies throughout all test activities, and to make test more affordable, credible, agile, and robust.

Within TE&E, the Electro-Optical Hardware in the Loop (EO HWIL) Department has the responsibility to provide, develop, and maintain engineering development stations that operate real-time and closed-loop with the weapons hardware and software. These test environments include Software Evaluation Stations (SWES), Computer in the Loop (CILs), Processor in the Loop (PILs), and Hardware in the Loop (HIL) facilities, which are used to perform the development of weapon embedded software, qualification of embedded software, integration of weapons hardware and software, and verification of the weapons systems performance. The EO HWIL department supports all Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) EO products, including new business initiatives, maintenance contracts, Internal Research and Development (IRADs), and Engineering Capital projects. Specific responsibilities include:

  • Development of test environments mechanical requirements, mechanical analysis, design, and documentation
  • Working with design drafting personnel to guide the preparation and release of the test environments Technical Data Package (TDP)
  • Verification of mechanical requirements, acceptance testing, and delivery of the equipment
  • Performance of geometric dimensioning and tolerance analysis
  • Verification that mechanical designs can be fabricated and assembled into higher level assemblies
  • Working closely with Supply Chain Management and manufacturing suppliers for procurement of all material items and build-to-print designs
  • Performance of structural, thermal, and center-of-gravity analyses
  • Development and execution of technology roadmaps to insert new technologies in these engineering test environments.

Job Description:

Experienced G08 engineer position for an individual with educational and professional experience in the design, development and integration of mechanical systems.

Development work includes, but is not limited to design and analysis of missile fixtures, spread bench test environments, electronic chassis', system interconnect, and Test Environment rack designs.

The individual is expected to work in a team environment, on diverse projects and will contribute to the development of all stages of product development for HWIL Test Environments. The candidate will be responsible for managing mechanical tasks and coordinating with other functional areas to ensure the quality and reliability of HWIL products. The individual will be responsible for technical drawings, application of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing as well as the release process for getting the final drawings approved for procurement and fabrication. They will be required to provide development support throughout the Test Environment lifecycle, from initial concept through product acceptance, and product maintenance which will include preparation of technical analysis reports, and presenting in design reviews.

The individual is expected to work in accordance with the Systems Integration and Test directives and One Page Process to perform product design, development, implementation and maintenance.

  • Three (3) or more years of experience using ProE/CREO Parametric or comparable CAD modeling software
  • Two (2) or more years of experience applying geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) methods
  • Two (2) or more years of experience in Configuration Management processes and application such as Product Data Management (PDM) or Windchill Common PDM.
  • Previous work experience using Microsoft Office Suite
  • US Citizenship Required

Desired Skills:

  • Masters Degree (MS) in Mechanical Engineering
  • Six (6) or more years of progressive technical/engineering experience with emphasis in mechanical design, analysis, and integration
