The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) in Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is seeking candidates for September 2019 systems engineering co-op position at McKinney, TX. The position offer an opportunity for students from technical disciplines to gain work experience in the defense industry by contributing to the design and development of tactical defense systems at Raytheon. The ideal candidate has a declared engineering, math or science major, possesses strong analytical skills, and is interested in a career in the design of large scale electromechanical or software systems with defense applications.
Selected candidate would be hired for a paid co-op position starting in September 2019, with exact dates based on the candidate’s academic calendar.
Specific job responsibilities will be designed to match the candidate’s technical interest and academic background, but will likely include algorithm development, performance assessment trade studies, and technical analysis of sensor signal and data processing subsystems. The Co-op participant would join a team of Raytheon system engineers to become acclimated with Raytheon Engineering practices and processes. The candidate would develop and exercise engineering skills through Raytheon sponsored technical training, and by making individual technical contributions to one of IDS’s tactical defense programs or internal research and design initiatives.
All assignments will focus on developing the candidate’s competency and contribution to program requirements definition, model based systems engineering, sub-system integration and test, and systems architecture. Systems Engineers use MATLAB regularly to conduct data analyses, and are expected to document and present technical results using standard Microsoft Office tools. The co_op participant should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.
The Systems Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is the central focus for Mission Systems Integration activities within IDS. SADID provides system level design through requirements definition for complex, large scale defense applications. To support this activity, SADID employees are responsible for modeling and simulation efforts, system effectiveness and operational analysis, radar systems design, signal processing algorithm development, tracking, and discrimination.
SADID's core capabilities encompass a wide range of the key systems engineering competencies required for successful technical development and program execution. Our capabilities cover the entire lifecycle, including business capture, proposal development, system requirements development and technical design, as well as system integration and test support
Our general systems engineering expertise comprises architecting, requirements development, flow down and design, algorithm development, modeling and simulation, operations analysis and integration and test support. Areas of expertise are radar, sensor, battle management solutions, command and control, and cyber security.
What does a Systems Engineer do?
A Systems Engineer uses engineering and math skills to define the architecture of the system (the “pieces” and how they interact), the performance and functional requirements of the system (what the system must be capable of doing and how well), the subsystem design and requirements (what components are needed and how they must perform), and the integration of the components into the overall system. At Raytheon, Systems Engineers contribute to programs throughout the entire product development lifecycle, from inception to completion, and are applying model based systems engineering and architecture methods on many of today's most advanced-technology systems.
In support of design and requirements generation, the Systems Engineers also analyze the system’s operational capabilities through modeling and simulation tools. Systems Engineers are also involved in integration, string testing, fielding and operational tests.
U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.
Candidates must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program with an emphasis in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Computer Science or Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related technical field.
US Citizenship is required.
