SIGINT Geolocation Engineer - Electronic Warfare EW

BAE Systems is developing advanced Electronic Support Measures (ESM) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) systems in support of the Electronic Warfare (EW) and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) business areas. These systems are installed across a wide variety of platforms and serve multiple purposes such as situational awareness and intelligence gathering which generally requires the precision geolocation of emitters. The Direction Finding and Geolocation Capability Group is a cross-functional multi-disciplinary team which provides engineering talent, technical expertise and new technology and research to the BAE Systems Electronic Systems Defense Sector.

The Direction Finding and Geolocation Capability Group is looking for an highly experienced engineer to work as part of a high impact, technically oriented team developing and integrating algorithms to DF and geolocate communication and radar signals. The work will include individual technical contribution on a related range of programs and internal research projects involving the simulation, design, development, test, documentation and deployment of signal processing algorithms for radiolocation.

Technical Responsibilities:

This position will involve growth opportunities in this expanding high technology group developing new and enhanced geolocation techniques. The candidate will be expected to be a contributor on a given program or group of programs containing DF/Geo content. Develop detailed technical computer simulations for complex DF/Geo algorithms and array signal processing. The work will involve contributing to group initiatives such as internal research and development, providing innovation and experience to solve complex engineering problems, simulation tool development as well as guiding and mentoring less experienced engineers and other program personnel.

Other Responsibilities:

Prepare and present technical presentations to peers and internal customers. Support business development efforts. Generate novel ideas and contribute to proposal efforts.

Minimum Education and Experience Bachelor’s Degree and 5 years work experience or equivalent experience Required Skills and Education
