Lockheed Martin Systems Engineer - Low Observables Lead Engineer / Orlando, Florida in Orlando, Florida

A Low Observables Design and Analysis Engineer is needed to serve as the Low Observables Lead for the development of a complex weapon system. The Low Observables (LO) Lead will be responsible for the design, analysis, and test activities required to ensure weapon signature performance requirements are achieved, and program statement of work (SOW) requirements are satisfied. The LO Lead engineer will coordinate other LO design, analysis, and test specialists, as well as coordinate with other IPTs on design and configuration updates that may have potential impact to weapon signature performance. The LO Lead engineer will be responsible for coordinating and interfacing regularly with suppliers, customers, other customer technical advisers, and government range test personnel. Responsibility includes managing Low Observables manpower, milestones, IMS, variance reports, etc. Experience leading system RCS design, analysis, and testing through the program lifecycle is required.

Low Observable (LO) Engineers are charged with the task of assuring that IR and RF signatures of weapons and related platforms and subsystems are defined, minimized to specified levels, and controlled through the design, production and fielding phases of development. This requires the performance of design analyses, and related trade studies pertaining to material selection, platform configuration and IR and RF phenomenology. Low signature design solutions are coordinated and managed with the various program disciplines and with associated suppliers. Verification of platform low observable characteristics are achieved via comprehensive RCS testing conducted at both closed indoor ranges and outdoor test facilities.


Basic Qualifications Candidates for LO Engineer positions may have various experience and skill set backgrounds ranging from EO expertise to RF and MMW scattering phenomena. Knowledge of complex low observable design and material technologies is valuable.

Experience with MATLAB and/or Simulink is desired. Prior experience coordinating complex RCS test programs to verify requirements is desired.

Must have an active TOP SECRET clearance prior to start.

Desired skills Experience developing the process and methodology for achieving RCS requirements in a production environment including development of coating and test methods is highly desirable.

Specific knowledge of radar absorbing material, paints, seals, and their respective corrosion resistant properties is of interest. Nose and conformal radome design and design awareness of radome, antenna and platform RF interactions is also valuable.
