Overview

Senior Systems Engineer

Be the Difference

Astrion offers comprehensive services that boost preparedness, optimize performance, and ensure success across various domains, from Cyber to Digital, Mission and Systems, servicing our nation's Civilian, Defense and Space communities. We support customers with Centers of Excellence in Washington DC, Huntsville, AL and Burlington, MA with an additional 36 locations across the U.S.

Astrion has an exciting opportunity for an Senior Systems Engineer to support the Aerospace Management Systems Division (AFLCMC/HBA) which is within the USAF Digital Directorate and located at Hanscom AFB, MA.

This position will specifically support the Aloha/Air Route Surveillance Radar Version 4 Replacement - Hawaii (ARSR4R-HI) program. This program will support the replacement of the current Hawaii Air Route Surveillance Radar Version 4 (ARSR-4) to include prototype development, test, site preparation, and installation. The replacement radar will address DoD capability gaps driven by new threats and provide dual use for Hawaii for Air Traffic Control (ATC) and weather monitoring. It is a key component of the USAF's defense of Hawaii as a high priority mission for the DoD and supports NORAD/NORTHCOM and PACAF/INDOPACOM Deterrence Initiatives.

This is a full time / salaried position located at Hanscom AFB, MA.
