Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in an engineering discipline, with preference for electrical engineering, aerospace engineering and physics.
Minimum of five years’ professional engineering experience that has consisted of performing the foregoing engineering listed below, and at least 3 years of total experience performing engineering functions with respect to support, research or development of mechanical, electrical, or aerospace systems.
Project Test Engineer to support test and evaluation of multiple unmanned platforms and capabilities. Work with Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Two Four (UX-24) on a variety of UAS, often with quick response tasking allowing teams to conduct "cradle to deployment" testing in as little as a couple of months. Work with high operational tempo teams, on various technologies supporting multiple mission areas. Primary tasking will include planning, execution, data analysis, and reporting of test results in support of mission effectiveness. Projects may include electronic warfare, radar, and EO/IR based geolocation, tracking, and mitigation technologies to defeat a UAS threat. Projects may also include manual and fire control solution driven kinetics (guns, propelled nets, and other UAS). Knowledge and experience with Naval Test Wing, Atlantic test and evaluation process, sound test engineering, and leading detachments and working directly with operators/commanding officers in the field is desired.
