The WLE directorate is seeking a Surveillance/Ordnance Assessment (OA) Engineer, located in Tucson, AZ.

Job Description
The candidate will perform Surveillance/Ordnance Assessment (OA) engineering activities to support a missile program. The Ordnance Assessment Program is a combined surveillance and shelf life assessment program that assists our customers in inventory management decisions.

Program activities include:
  • Performing missile-level accelerated aging (environmental exposure)
  • Executing missile and lower level teardown inspections
  • Writing energetic item accelerated aging and test plans
  • Coordinating accelerated aging and testing of energetic and mechanical components at the Manufacturers facilities or other designated test facilities
  • Writing final assessment reports and presenting results at Customer reviews
The OA Program provides a continuing assessment of the effects of operational environments on the products safety, quality, performance, reliability, and service life status.

Surveillance tests assess the effects of long-term storage; identify and establish controls for items that are calendar age, operating time, or cycle-time sensitive; ascertain aging or environmentally induced trends, service/shelf life limits, and other criteria affecting life cycle reliability and operational readiness.

The candidate will work with our Customers, commercial and government test facilities, Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) integrated product teams (IPTs), in addition to engineering organizations including, but not limited to: Energetics and Propulsion, Materials and Process Engineering (M&PE), Mechanical, Electrical, Safety, Reliability, Quality, and Supply Chain.

The candidate will be required to work independently and collaborate with other engineers and scientists to evaluate product service/shelf life limitations related to degradation in performance, safety, and reliability. This position includes providing oversight of surveillance activities in place at several commercial test facilities. Surveillance activities include various types of environmental tests, component level functional testing and the breakdown, test and critical analysis of individual components.

Candidate will perform various tasks to include engineering analysis, oversight of test & evaluation, generation of test plans, test reports, and the reduction of test data for use in making service/shelf life predictions in support of contract deliverables. Candidate will work with various disciplines to identify methods and processes to uncover service/shelf life limitation in all aspects of product design. Candidate may be presenting program status to large audiences at Program and Technical reviews.

  • Be capable of executing/applying root cause analysis at a system level
  • Understanding of environmental effects on hardware and application of technical theories and concepts in relation to the operation of aging components and materials
  • Knowledge of mechanical components, materials selection and characterization, testing and hardware integration
  • Working knowledge of component failure modes, component reliability, MIL specs and standards
Desired Skills, Education, and Experience:
  • Active DoD clearance
  • Excellent presentation skills with ability and confidence to present in front of large customer audiences
