SRI International, an over 75-year strong pioneering research institute, has a rich history supporting government and industry. Our innovations have created new industries, billions of dollars in market value and lasting benefits to society. SRI is organized around broad disciplines and capabilities, with research and development divisions and labs to groups who excel at identifying new opportunities, developing products and creating custom solutions. Our organization is driven by impact - delivering unique solutions for the world's important challenges and transforming ideas into reality for clients and partners.
SRI International is looking for a full time Simulation and Test Engineer to work with our team at Aberdeen Proving Ground in support of the US Army Communications Electronic Command (CECOM). The primary focus of this position is the development of radar threat simulations that will be used during Aircraft Survivability Equipment software testing and validation.
The ideal candidate should have strong analytical skills, be curious, resourceful, independently motivated, and detail oriented.
Responsibilities of the position may include, but are not limited to:
Radar signal parameter analysis/interpretation
Radar signal simulation development
Test plan development and execution
Test analysis and reporting
QA, software design and development for applications
After training, the successful team member will be able to review and interpret EWIR data and other RF parametric information, develop and program RF simulations for lab test purposes, develop and maintain simulation documentation, develop and execute test plans, troubleshoot errors (hardware, software, and simulation), maintain simulations with configuration control procedures and maintain appropriate file libraries with programmed simulations.
Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics. Emerging talent welcome to apply!
Candidates must be a US Citizen with the ability to obtain/maintain a current Secret clearance. Current active clearance a plus.
Comfortable using standard Windows and Office tools; capable of learning and using basic interfaces of other operating systems (Linux, OpenVMS)
