Engineering Fellow - Embedded Test Architecture

Company: RTX
Location: Tucson
Posted on: November 22, 2020

Job Description:

Raytheon Missiles & Defense (RMD), Systems Integration and Test is seeking strategic technical leaders passionate about effective application of Systems Engineering to deliver world-class missile systems to our defense customers.

As part of Test Strategy and Architecture initiatives, the company is seeking experts in the field of Embedded Test Architecture (ETA). ETA is defined as the incorporation of test capabilities, hardware, software, and firmware, into the prime development item to support testing across the product's life cycle. ETA development includes incorporation of test capabilities to support the following: a) Customer requirements such as BIT Coverage across the system states and modes, b) integration and development tests using functional test environments, c) performance tests on CIL and HIL test environments, and d) support of logistic capabilities such as software reprogramming.

ETA development includes performing cost trades to properly scope test capabilities within the product's defined cost allocation; derivation of hardware test structures for integration into the prime development item to support built in test and facilitate development testing; and derivation of software and firmware structures to include process definitions and built in test algorithms. The Embedded Test Architect should be knowledgeable on these processes and have the ability to effectively lead a System Test IPT in the development and generation of requirement documentation to facilitate design activities associated with implementing the Embedded Test System.

Historically embedded test systems have been integrated into complex weapons systems where the cost of a defect escape is high. However due to the escalating cost of product development tests and life cycle consideration such as shelf life extension programs, RMD recognizes that implementation of an embedded test system into most prime development items can have a positive cost impact across the product's life cycle.

Embedded Test Architecture - As a senior engineering leader, the employee will be accountable for architecting, defining, implementing, and verifying an embedded test system to be integrated into the prime development item. The employee should have core competencies to lead a System Test IPT in the development of the embedded test system as defined below.

  • Ability to develop a test strategy for an embedded test system that meets customer requirements. Test strategy includes top level definition of the embedded test system, behavior of the embedded test system across the products system states and modes, definition of key hardware, software, and firmware test structures to be embedded into the product, and development of a verification strategy to ensure that the implemented embedded test system is compliant to the Customer's and RMD's key requirements.
  • Knowledgeable in the development of requirement documentation to provide an actionable requirements set to the Design IPT's, hardware, software, and firmware. Tasks include incorporation of embedded test requirements into product Critical Item Development Specifications and Interface Requirement Documents, and generation of test algorithm specification that define BIT algorithms and structures.
  • Ability to effectively communicate, verbally and written, and influence System and Design IPT in the incorporation of the defined embedded test system. This includes an ability to conduct system level trade studies to adjudicate various embedded test system approaches in arriving at a cost effective solution that is support by all responsible IPT's.
  • Ability to communicate with Program and Functional Management relative to the development of the embedded test system. Assist in development of tasking relative to the embedded test system and incorporation into the Program Plan and Integrated Master Schedule.
  • Knowledgeable in the use of Model Based Engineering as applied to the development of an embedded test system. Knowledge can include career experiences in the architecture of Test and Evaluation events and environments which used models, simulations, test beds, prototypes, and full- scale Engineering Development Models(EDMs) to satisfy development and environmental/qualification objectives.
    Drive Customer Affordability:
    • Develop product test requirements for an assembly and test flow that meets defined test time and affordability metric definitions.
    • Seek opportunities to drive improvements in product affordability, reliability, and availability through increased embedded and built-in-test capabilities and decreased lifecycle needs for common and peculiar support equipment.
      Leadership & Business Acumen:
      • In addition to having a strong technical competency in Integration and Test, the ETA employee will possess executive presence and have proven leadership capabilities demonstrated at level of a Chief Engineer for a major development acquisition program (MDAP).
      • Strong presentation skills and has had experience briefing to the customer at the military pay grade 06 level (Navy Captain and Colonel and GS/GM-15 civilian employee) and higher.
      • Good business acumen and has demonstrated the ability to make a business case and the value proposition for technical decisions being made.Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security. Clearance as of day one of employment.

        Required Skills and Experience:

        U.S. Citizenship is required
      • Minimum of 12 years' experience with systems verification, validation, integration and test or related experience
      • Minimum of 10 years' experience with systems engineering
      • Knowledgeable in development of Embedded Test Systems using Model Based System Engineering techniques.
      • Technical leadership with new business capture/pursuit experience including contribution or authoring of white papers, RFI responses, proposal of technical volumes or related experience
      • Active DoD Secret Clearance (SSBI desired).
      • Patents, Papers and Publications in related technical fieldRequired Education: Bachelors of Science (B.S.) in math, engineering, science or related technical field. (Advance degree desired)
