“The RF field is very broad. For example, I work with spacecraft antennas, but I have colleagues that work with missiles and aircraft sensor systems. At any given time, my team is working on 10 or more projects, ranging from antennas that support weather forecasting to connecting warfighters across the globe.”

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. Be More Than You Can Imagine.

Advanced electronic warfare (EW) capabilities enable F-35 pilots to locate and track enemy forces, jam radars and disrupt attacks with unparalleled effectiveness. Advanced avionics give the pilot real-time access to battle space information with 360-degree coverage and an unparalleled ability to dominate the tactical environment. Data collected by sensors on the F-35 will immediately be shared with commanders at sea, in the air or on the ground, providing an instantaneous, high-fidelity view of ongoing operations – making the F-35 a formidable force multiplier while enhancing coalition operations. This system allows F-35 pilots to reach well-defended targets and suppress enemy radars.

As a member of the F-35 Mission Data Design & Programming (MDDP) team, the RF Engineer Sr. will be responsible for supporting activities associated with the development and maturation of Mission Data Tools (MDT) and the generation and test of Mission Data. Responsibilities include defining and documenting engineering requirements, writing specifications, coordinating with the Principal Engineers and other key stakeholders, and interfacing/coordinating with various F-35 government reprogramming laboratories. The selected candidate shall be required to use their knowledge of Electronic Warfare, Radar or other RF systems to program the Mission Data of the F-35 aircraft. Key areas of focus are fundamental RF waveform techniques, modes, and an understanding of advanced integrated RF systems.

The selected candidate must be able to obtain a secret clearance.

A level 3 employee Typically has 5 - 10 years of professional experience.
