Engineer RF Microwave Design 3

Northrop Grumman Technical Services, Airborne Systems Integration Center seeks a Radio Frequency (RF) engineer to serve within our electrical engineering team. The ideal candidate will have a strong foundation in RF engineering and will be providing RF expertise during the design, integration, testing, and certification of avionics upgrades and payloads aboard aircraft solutions to include SIGINT payloads, radars, electro-optical systems, communications systems and survivability equipment. The individual must have the technical skills to perform hardware development and proof of concept demonstrations including RF printed circuit board design, discrete component and coax cable level prototypes, integration of commercial transceivers, and system testing. The candidate will research, investigate, and experiment with new RF technologies such as millimeter-wave systems, digital phased-array, coherent distributed systems, efficient power amplifiers, and non-linear mitigation techniques. The aspirant should be able to work in a multi-disciplinary team to investigate new hardware concepts and tradeoffs in relation to associated algorithms and applications. The candidate will support technology and business development activities, proposals (including schedules and cost estimates), design reviews, and certification activities.

Multidisciplinary experience to include avionics and systems engineering
Existing Secret Clearance or higher with work experience on restricted programs is highly preferred
Ability/interest to occasionally travel to forward deployed, high risk areas for short term test and system fielding projects (1-4 weeks)

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
