Senior Software Architect - Electronic Warfare

As a Software Architecture Engineer designing Electronic Warfare solutions at BAE Systems, you will lead or support development of optimum processing architectures for our Electronic Warfare (EW) systems based on balanced requirements and extensive product and customer knowledge for multiple platform and application concepts. You will also lead or support the implementation structure and system architectural models from early platform concept through detailed design, integration, and test phases.


  • Responsible to define the architecture of the complete processing environment with attention to satisfying all performance requirements while maximizing leverage across other advanced needs for other platform. You will lead or support architecture definition and design for moderately complex to highly complex systems.
  • Responsible for the creation of model-based and physical architectures, performance of the complete system, and flow-down of requirements to lower level components for optimal system performance. Includes leading the functional analysis and logical architecture development needed for successful hardware and software integration.
  • As the software lead, you will support identification derived requirement in the areas of sizing, timing, memory, control and other architectural elements.
  • Support the introduction of new technology to create optimally balanced technical solutions for each application by ensuring project content meets the customer needs and the technology strategies.
  • Support requirements decomposition analysis to help drive concept architectures and system characteristics. Support compliance assessments.
  • Manage resolution of architecture issues. Enforce design commonality (as practical) across concepts.
  • Generate System/Subsystem Design Descriptions (SSDDs) and drive deliverables to meet project required performance and timing.
