The Survivability Community of Practice core competencies are as follows:

  • Develops and integrates advanced technology to reduce the detectability of aircraft in the electromagnetic, infrared, visual and acoustic spectrums

  • Develops and implements predictive analysis codes; builds and tests physical models; designs, develops and builds test and verification equipment; and develops, tests and integrates specialty materials

  • Works closely with engineers of other disciplines to optimize the integration of this technology on existing and future aircraft.

An emerging generation of advanced design and special programs are offering dramatic challenges to low observables / signature management / survivability engineers. These are unique opportunities to join the world leader in the development of Long Range Strike capabilities, our country's next generation stealth fighter, and Reconnaissance and Surveillance aircraft. Some programs are so advanced; their impact tomorrow keeps them hidden today.

Position Description: This role focuses primarily in system survivability product design, development, analysis, and concept integration; materials (including high-temperature), radar cross section (RCS), and electromagnetic design, analysis, and testing.

Although not required to start this position requires the ability to obtain and maintain a DOD Secret or Top Secret clearance as well as Program Special Access within a reasonable amount of time, as determined by the company to meet its business needs.
