The systems engineering requirements for Aegis CSEA include system design, development, integration and test, incorporation of capability upgrades, installation support, certification test support, Developmental Test/Operational Test (DT/OT) test support, and delivery to land based test sites and ships. Boeing is seeking candidates to help apply our world-class systems engineering skills and maritime mission system experience to enhance the performance and functionality of the AEGIS weapon system by competing for the AEGIS CSEA contract. As a Electrical Engineering member of the Boeing Aegis CSEA team the selected candidate will supports the definition and documentation of radar and software requirements and design associated with the AEGIS combat system. Candidate must have significant experience in defining radar behavior, performance and interface requirements and developing radar software components to run in a Service Oriented Architecture compatible with the Navy\'s objective open architecture standards. Typical responsibilities include: Develop and validate requirements for various communication, sensor, electronic warfare and other electromagnetic systems and components. Develops and validates electromagnetic requirements for electrical\\electronic systems, mechanical systems, interconnects and structures. Develops architectures to integrate systems and components into higher level systems and platforms. Performs trade studies, modeling, simulation and other forms of analysis to predict component, interconnects and system performance and to optimize design around established requirements. Defines and conducts tests to validate performance of designs to requirements. Manages appropriate aspects of supplier and partner performance to ensure compliance to requirements. Provides support to products throughout their lifecycle by developing root-cause analysis of anomalies and other engineering support as requested.Competencies General[ + ] CommunicationClarifies purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence.
