Sr. Principal Engineer Electro

This individual will be responsible for continuing the development and focused application of our µ SAS TM product line,a fully embedded, interferometric, synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) boasting very low SWaP and real time beamforming. Tasks will included guiding existing technology into adjacent opportunities and continuing to improve the performance of the existing product line. Individual will also ensure integrated designs are ready for manufacture/production, for engineering follow through production addressing any issues that arise within cost and schedule constraints, and for factory acceptance level testing (FAT), both bench-level and within an Acoustic Test Facility. Once through FAT, this individual may be asked to travel to participate in field testing. Familiarity with sonar/sensor data analysis and interpretation of data against requirements is encouraged.

Basic Qualifications:
