Our employees are not only part of history, they're making history.

Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems has an opening for aEngineer Design 2 to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals. This position will be located in Manhattan Beach, CA.

The candidate will lead verification efforts for an experimental Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) mission data processing unit to be delivered to a Government customer (AFRL) by the end of August 2018. The On-Orbit Reprogrammable Digital Waveform Generator (ORDWG) unit generates ICD-compliant GPS signals while providing the versatility and re-programmability to support emerging PNT requirements and scientific experiments after launch. Major verification areas for the ORDWG unit include RF signal quality, PNT ranging code correctness, civil/military navigation message generation, Control Segment communication, code/waveform flexibility, security of configuration updates, GPS receiver interoperability, and geo-location with an emulated constellation. The candidate may also have the opportunity to provide test support to AFRL for up to a year after unit delivery, including on-site at the location of the Government test bed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The candidate will:
Lead the execution of the ORDWG unit test plan
