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.”

Prj Mgt & Plng Opns Rep (Level 2)

Palmdale, California

Job ID: 552990BR Date posted: Apr. 14, 2021 Locations: Palmdale, California Description:Prj Mgt & Plng Opns Rep (Level 2)

Job Description:
The F-35's very low-observable (VLO) stealth allows it to safely enter defended airspace areas without being seen by radars that 4th Generation and earlier legacy fighters cannot evade. The combination of the stealth features, active electronically-scanned array (AESA) radar technology, and the aircraft’s ability to carry its full component of weapons stores and fuel internally allows F-35 pilots to engage ground targets at longer ranges without being detected and tracked, using precision-guided munitions and air-to-air radar-guided missiles to successfully complete air-to-ground missions. In this “clean” configuration, the F-35 will enter the air battlespace first, clearing the way with air dominance for follow-on legacy coalition forces to operate with relative impunity.
As a Project Management and Planning Operations Representative Sr. you will, in this role lead a small team in testing of VLO/LO materials. With a focus on cost, schedule, and quality at these tasks:
• Plans, implements, tests, documents, and maintains solutions for the integration and testing
• Synthesizes customer contractual needs and requirements into system test solutions that utilize knowledge of schedule and cost constraints
• Establishes functional specifications and standards, solves hardware/software interface problems, defines input/output parameters, and ensures integration of the entire system or subsystem
• Writes discrepancy reports and performs integration regression testing to verify/validate incorporated fixes to software, components, subsystems and systems
• Coordinates subsystem and/or system testing activities with programs and other organizations
• Performs analysis of test results and prepares comprehensive subsystem and/or system level evaluation reports which verify and validate system performance.
• Must be a US Citizen. This position supports a facility that requires special access.
• Secret Clearance is required to start.
