Job DetailsSECRET or higher clearance is REQUIREDSenior Electrical Engineer with experience in embedded hardware and software. This position offers an exemplar career opportunity to provide critical engineering services to advance Electronic Warfare (EW) ship defense capabilities.SUMMARY DESCRIPTION: Software System DesignEW systems require the detection and classification of large numbers of emitters through thecoordination of multiple hardware and software subsystems, whose operational state must bemanaged to ensure the correct operation and reliable commanding of, and reporting of systemevents to the EW system operator. Software design is critical to manage the complex interactionbetween each subsystem's state, nominal, and off-nominal condition handling and applicationspecific processing in a deterministic manner. Software shall be designed to allow formaintainability as future development and changes to the system baseline require updates tothe software over time. Real-time and Near Real-time Software DevelopmentUsing C to develop real-time and near real-time applications to run on Real-time OperatingSystems (RTOS - VxWorks or similar), Embedded Linux, or other operating systems. Thisdevelopment requires extensive knowledge of the selected RTOS and the set of design toolsavailable from the vendor. Graphical User Interface DevelopmentDevelop and maintain graphical user interfaces (GUI) based on requirements elicited frominterviews with the operators and end users. GUI's need to be platform independent orportable without requiring a complete redevelopment effort, between operating systems anddevelopment tools. GUI will be customizable to the particular mode of deployment. SimulationUse mathematical simulation packages such as Matlab/Simulink to validate and prototypedesigns or perform algorithm development to reduce hardware testing effort and improvesystem performance. When target hardware or vendor software is not available, developsoftware test harnesses simulating target hardware to the extent possible as a means to reduceintegration time once target hardware becomes available. Test Data AnalysisDevelop methods for analysis and reporting of engineering telemetry collected from operationalsystems to be used for anomaly investigation as well as truth data in generating test reports. Embedded Firmware DevelopmentDevelop embedded firmware targeting various subsystems with embedded processors.Embedded firmware is typically deployed to a resource limited microcontroller without a realtimeoperating system and is highly application specific depending on the circuit design. Hardware Circuit DesignDesign and review designs for application specific printed circuit boards (PCBs) and printed wireboards (PWBs). The design process includes component selection, design for reliability, anddesign for manufacturability. Apply software domain knowledge early in the hardware designprocess to ensure future embedded software development can be conducted in a manner thatresults in the development activity completed on schedule with all required functionality. Integration and TestingSupport the integration and testing of systems and subsystems with the target platform(s).Develop and execute test plans or procedures to validate the proper operation of softwarewhen deployed on an operational platform on-site or off-site. May require limited travel.MINIMUM SKILLS/ QUALIFICATIONS: 10+ years' experience with safety-critical and/or mission-critical embedded systems Proficient in C/C and Python, targeting embedded Linux and bare-metal Knowledge of ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers + peripherals and cross compiler toolchains,preferably GNU-Arm-eabi-none on M0 and M4 cores Knowledge of Zynq-7000 and ZynqMP+ UltraScale FPGAs, Vivado, Petalinux toolchains, yoctotoolchains, uboot. Prefer some VHDL experience. Comfortable reading electrical schematics and datasheets, using lab test equipment, PCB & designand production, debugging skills and board bring-up with in-circuit debugger/JTAG Deep knowledge of communications standards and protocols Experience with basic RF and other laboratory test equipmentEDUCATION: Bachelor of Science in Engineering discipline, Mathematics, Computer Science, or other relatedtechnical degree. Masters preferred.AS A CONDITION OF EMPLOYMENT: You must pass a drug and pre-employment drug screening. U.S.Citizenship Required. Candidate must follow all company and non-DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing.A Department of Defense (DoD) Secret security clearance is required at time of hire. Applicantsselected will be subject to a U.S. Government security investigation and must meet eligibilityrequirements for access to classified information.Interested in hearing more?
