Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented Analog Electronics Engineer to join a diverse team to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions.
The Analog Electronics Engineer will help analyze and characterize power systems, control systems, filters, and amplifiers within threat weapons of interest. The goal of this analysis will be to describe the threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against the U.S. systems that oppose it. Test setups will be developed to verify analysis and further characterize the signal processing chain and control system. Weapon system instrumentation and testing will be supported for data collection purposes. Once analysis is complete, efforts will continue towards developing countermeasures for the threat system in order to ensure its defeat in combat. This position will also have responsibility for the design of new analog hardware to simulate and interface with existing threat weapons of interest. This is a position requiring significant hands-on use of electronics test equipment.
The Foreign Weapon Systems branch goals include the characterization, analysis, testing, and ultimate defeat of all types of threat weapons systems including foreign missiles and radars. This group concentrates primarily on electrical, sensor, optical, and firmware aspects of the systems, but will engage any part of the system that advances our goals. This is hands-on work involving actual threat weapon hardware. Our team develops equipment to control and test these threats in a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. We also specialize in the development of countermeasure concepts and equipment.
Candidate must possess a Bachelor's or higher Science or Engineering Degree from an ABET-accredited university with a 3.3 or higher GPA.
Candidate must demonstrate:
Strong background in analog electronics and control systems.
Experience with test equipment, including signal generators, oscilloscopes, dynamic signal analyzers, etc.
Strong verbal and written communication skills.
Candidate must be a resident of or be willing to relocate to the Huntsville, AL, area.
The following experience is desirable:
Working knowledge of programming languages, including C/C++, Python, and/or MATLAB.
Experience with digital signal processing and embedded systems.
Experience with IR and electro-optic sensors.
Experience with RF/radar and missile systems.
Candidate must be a US Citizen and possess (and be able to maintain) a Final Secret Clearance or meet the eligibility to obtain (and maintain) a Secret Clearance.
