Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented Threat Weapon HWIL Engineer to support our Human Resources department. 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 Threat Weapon HWIL Engineer will support reverse-engineering and testing of foreign infrared seekers. This work includes developing software and hardware solutions to integrate foreign weapons into a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. The objective of this development is to assess threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against U.S. systems that oppose it.
Tasks will include developing real-time software models to simulate analog and digital missile subsystems, implementing parallelizable algorithms that meet real-time constraints, and troubleshooting hardware test benches. Candidates will work closely with software and hardware reverse-engineering teams to understand missile tracking, guidance, and counter-countermeasure algorithms for creation of accurate models. Following development and integration, performance of custom solutions will be validated against actual threat hardware. Once complete, efforts will continue toward developing countermeasures for the threat system, in order to ensure its defeat in combat.
Candidate must possess a Bachelor's or higher Science or Engineering Degree from an ABET-accredited university with a 3.5 or higher GPA.
