How You Will Make a Difference at Northrop Grumman:

As a developer of RF sensors for some of the most advanced systems in the U.S. arsenal, Northrop Grumman is a world leader in advanced sensor systems and design. These include sensors for air dominance platforms (such as the F-22, F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, F-16), bomber and strike programs (such as B-1B), airborne / maritime / ground-based surveillance missions (E-3 AWACS, E-7 MESA, TPS-80 G/ATOR, SPQ-9B, and UAV systems such as Global Hawk), as well as restricted programs and missions. We offer the opportunity to join a team to help solve issues from the field and drive new solutions into next generation sensor systems.

Northrop Grumman’s Sensor Solutions Systems Engineering (S3E) organization has a need for a Systems Engineer supporting the design, development, integration, and verification on some of our most advanced RF sensors.  Northrop Grumman prioritizes mentoring and growth for our engineering team, successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with industry-leading sensor and system architects with 20+ years of industry experience to build their career in systems engineering.

Roles & Responsibilities:

This position is primarily engaged in the development and fielding of sensor modes for advanced multi-function RF subsystems. Key modes of operation include, but is not limited to, synthetic aperture radar for ground imaging applications, electronic protection to mitigate the most advanced adversary electronic attack, long-range search and track waveforms to provide critical situational awareness to our customers, and electronic attack to defeat the most advanced adversary sensor system. Early in the system lifecycle, systems engineers develop parametric representations, visualizations, and data driven analysis to support sensor requirements definition and use case validation. Progressing past analysis and design, Northrop Grumman Systems Engineers also support the integration of sensor modes from digital simulation environments to laboratories to our on-site fleet of specially modified test aircraft. Throughout this process, Sensor Systems Engineers engage with our customers to balance their functional and performance requirements with other sensor functionality to enable true multi-function operation.
