We are looking for Technique Developers to provide technical support for sustainment of the CREW Duke System software baseline.
What You’ll Get to Do:
Perform technical analysis in support of defeating existing and emerging RF and RCIED threats, as defined from user requirements.
Design and develop new waveforms and computer algorithms to expand the capabilities of existing electronic warfare systems and simulated environments.
Develop jamming techniques against RF threats
Characterize and exploit RF threat devices
Develop techniques to better detect and classify RF threats, and to reduce false alarms from misidentification
Prepare performance validation and/or regression testing of threat techniques, to include simulations, laboratory testing, and live system testing
Generate a functional design decomposition of developed threat techniques and initiate and define the process for implementation into the existing electronic warfare system HW
Interface with users to translate requirements into design
Prepare, maintain, and update relevant system baseline documentation and other technical reports
Perform independent reviews of deliverables produced by others (e.g. specifications, source code, test benches, verification plans, technical reports, etc.).
