Job Description

BAE Systems is seeking a Senior Manager for an exciting opportunity developing new capabilities for the Sentinel ICBM weapon system at Hill Air Force Base (AFB), Utah. This position will provide engineering support to a large Government acquisition program.
The Next Generation Reentry Capabilities (NGRC) program will design, develop, produce, and deploy new payload system suites (reentry vehicles and/or countermeasures). Key next generation payload attributes include enhancements in accuracy, lethality, and ICBM Reentry System/Reentry Vehicle (RS/RV) interoperable operations. Program activities will also include the employment of digital acquisitions through the application of digital engineering, agile software development, and open systems architectures.
Our experts are responsible for integrated weapon system management, from inception to retirement. As a Nuclear Hardness and Survivability (NH&S) Engineer, you will work on a high-performing team to provide engineering, technical, and administrative expertise to the government to maintain their nuclear hardness program in accordance with requirements detailed in Department of Defense, United States Strategic Command, and Air Force directives, manuals and instructions, during the development of a reliable and effective nuclear deterrent. Nuclear hardness is defined as the ability of a system or any of its elements to withstand exposure to one or more effects of a hostile nuclear environment. A qualified candidate will:

  • Perform professional technical analysis or design reviews on one or more complex components or functional systems of products requiring the full use and wide application of established engineering principles, theories, concepts, and precedents in the field plus a working knowledge of other related disciplines.
  • Learn the fundamentals of the fielded weapon system and nuclear hardness requirements. Continuously improve that knowledge in order to apply it to technical analyses and design reviews.
  • Evaluate plans and criteria for technical activities in their specialty and recommend alternatives as required to comply with customer and company obligations. Participate in small projects or segments of major projects responsible for achievement of cost, schedule, and technical performance objectives.
  • Devise new techniques and approaches and provide solutions to a wide range of technical problems by drawing on their own areas of technical specialty and consulting with other engineering specialists for technologies where they do not have in-depth expertise.
  • Review and coordinate work with other team members to ensure progress is maintained to achieve specified aims; prepare data for reports on technical findings, recommendations, accomplishments and progress measured against specific plans; perform assignments as required by contractual agreements.
  • Attend conferences and meetings to represent assigned activity. Develop working group meeting agendas, prepare and consolidate briefing materials, provide meeting minutes, and draft answers to action items assigned by other agencies or organizations.
  • Review and provide assessment and assistance to programs on Nuclear Hardness, Electromagnetic Interference / Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMI/EMC), shielding applications, Technical Order changes, and Engineering Technical Analysis Requests.
  • Author and publish white papers, formal analyses, and briefing materials to document engineering-based rationales to inform decision-makers in support of recommendations to our customer.
  • Complete other duties as assigned by the Government customer.
Responsibilities include
  • Provide technical advice to Government leaders and engineers
  • Support requirements development, analysis of alternatives, verification and validation activities, and milestone preparation
  • Prepare/review engineering analysis reports and key acquisition documents, including RFP packages
  • Participate in technical interchange meetings, design reviews, program management reviews, certification working groups, and other technical meetings, as required

Required Education, Experience, & Skills
  • Bachelor's degree in engineering or related technical discipline with 14+ years of engineering experience or master's degree in engineering or related technical discipline with 12+ years of engineering experience
  • Ability to obtain a TS/SCI clearance
Pursuant to Government contract, this position requires ship.
Due to its special-access, classified working environment, this position is only located at Hill AFB, Utah, and is not conducive to telework schedules.

Preferred Education, Experience, & Skills

The ideal candidate will have most of the following experience:
  • Experience as a nuclear or NH&S engineer on a missile system or complex weapon system (especially ACAT I program or ICBM-related experience)
  • College-level course (or similar) experience in: Fundamentals or Theory of Electricity & Magnetism, Electromagnetics & Transmission Lines, Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics, Antenna Theory and Design, Microwave Engineering, Wireless Communication Systems, Introduction to Semiconductor Physics, Radiation Effects on Electronics and Semiconductors, and Power System Design. Emphasis in software or computer science is not desired
  • Familiarity with Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) / Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) / Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and Electrical Systems Integration
  • Familiarity with military technology and technical data desired
  • Proficiency in MATLAB and/or experience with Spice or Microcap or similar circuit modeling software desired
  • Experience in design or test to verify models
  • Demonstrated technical writing and presentation skills
  • Open to continuous learning. Position will require moderate research
  • Experience supervising engineering teams
