Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific, and IT Solutions engaging in the defense, space, cyber, and commercial fields.

This position is for an electrical or computer engineering internship within the Flight Systems Department as part of the Missile & Aviation Systems Division. Engineers in the Flight Systems Department provide solutions to complex, technical problems involving analysis, design, flight testing and/or autonomous solutions of various types of radars, missiles, space systems, hypersonics, acquisition systems, fixed & rotary wing aircraft, and more.

Engineering interns in this position will work closely with full-time engineers and will complete a project that will relate to design and analysis of various components of ground-based or air-based radar systems. Areas of focus within this line of work include, but are not limited to:

- Antennas and Transmit/Receive Modules

- Transmitters

- Receivers and Exciters

- Signal Processors

- Electronic Protection

- Waveform Analysis and Scheduling

- Radar Mode Logic and Supporting Algorithms

Engineers in this area perform design work and are also responsible for documenting their designs and reasoning through report writing and the occasional presentation to customers. This process is largely collaborative between the engineers, customers, and some end users in the modelling and simulation community.

Basic Qualifications

This position requires a fundamental understanding of electrical and computer engineering concepts, particularly including electromagnetic wave propagation, signal processing, linear system theory, algorithm implementation and analysis, antenna theory, and linear algebra.
