About Us:

At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers.

Job Summary:

The Control Systems section within the Power & Electronic Systems Department (PESD) has an exciting employment opportunity for a Senior Engineer with motion control experience.

The Control Systems section is a team of engineers responsible for supporting the design, development and validation of power and actuation (servo) subsystems for various radar systems and other defense applications.

As a Senior Engineer Motion Control you will be responsible for supporting and driving the execution of product development projects. You will be working as or with a Team/Technical Lead and under the guidance of an Integrated Product Team (IPT) Lead.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:
  • Designing and evaluating servo control hardware and/or software solutions to meet system operational and performance requirements
  • Developing models and controllers for actuation systems (including mechanical subsystems)
  • Establishing performance, stability and control metrics along with the algorithms necessary to achieve them
  • Supporting system integration efforts
  • Ownership and execution of scope, cost and schedule within programs and projects with minimum supervision
  • Defining tasks and providing direction to junior-level engineering and support staff
  • Participating in peer and program reviews as a Subject Matter Expert (SME).
  • Other tasks as required by the Section Lead and/or Department Lead.
  • Up to 10% travel may be required.
  • Work in a multidisciplinary team environment focused on execution and engineering excellence, using established business and engineering tools and processes
  • Interact with internal and external customers and leadership team members.

Qualifications You Must Have:

  • Bachelors in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM)
  • 5+ years of prior relevant experience
  • Understanding and working knowledge of classic control theory and vector control of electric motors
  • Hands-on experience with hardware and software implementation of closed-loop position/speed control actuation systems (including feedback sensing and protections)
  • Familiarity with IGBT- or MOSFET-based power electronics inverters used as motor drives (including rectifier front end)
  • Familiarity with induction and permanent magnet electric machines
  • Hands-on experience with 1-100 kW systems (bus voltages in the range of 270-1000 VDC)
  • Experience in control system design using Matlab/Simulink or equivalent
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance
Qualifications We Value:
  • Bachelor's or advanced degree in Electrical Engineering
  • Prior experience as engineering Team Lead (hardware, electrical or integration)
  • Understanding and working knowledge of non-linear systems and control theory
  • Hands-on experience with PWM or SVM for voltage modulation in power electronics inverters
  • Hands-on experience with software (i.e. DSP) or firmware (i.e. FPGA) implementation of vector controllers for electric machines
  • Hands-on experience designing power electronics inverters or controlled rectifiers
  • Ability to create system models capturing implementation-specific characteristics such as propagation delays, quantization, discrete time, sensor non-linearities, etc.
  • Familiarity with Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) systems and their use for motion control applications
  • Understanding and working knowledge of project management (including EVMS)
  • Understanding and working knowledge of requirements management (including DOORS)
  • Familiarity with commercial or military power input/quality requirements and specifications (DO-160, MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1399 or MIL-STD-1275)
  • Active DoD security clearance
