Do you enjoy tackling technical problems no one has solved before?

Are you a college student who enjoys the hands-on activities of putting complex engineering systems together, testing and attempting to break them?

Would you like to understand the possible modes of failure, contribute to developing and implementing solutions, retest, and ultimately field a product which will perform each and every time?

Do you want to join a team that thrives on diversity of thought and innovative ideas?

Do you have a passion for protecting our warfighters?


Then System Integration and Test might be for you!

Our team of talented engineers collaborates across disciplines from initial concepts to product sell off, integrates complex technology, debugs and resolves interface issues, evaluates system performance, demonstrates and sells off state-of-the-art products for areas including radars, command and control platforms, missile systems, and cyber defense. Explore some of the systems you may work on as part of our team:

Depending on the product, your experience, and your skill level, some example tasks could include:
  • Integration and test planning, as well as execution in our labs, or on the aircraft or ship platform
  • Troubleshooting and failure analysis, including root cause and corrective action analysis
  • Evaluate performance through data analysis
  • Building engineering hardware in the lab
  • Support test events, including flight test and field events, either in the US or internationally
  • Support qualification events
  • Prepare and present results in reports and briefings to internal or external stakeholders

Our teams contribute through all phases of the product development lifecycle, within an interdisciplinary process that ensures the customer and warfighters needs are satisfied through every stage. This commitment to excellence can sometimes include opportunities for travel, and flexible hours/shifts in order to ensure programmatic milestones are met.
