BAE Systems is developing advanced Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems in support of the Electronic Warfare (EW) domain across a wide variety of platforms including technology for RF sensing, signal processing, identification, detection, tracking, and geo-location of emitters. Key technology advancements in ESM systems will improve air/sea vehicle situational awareness, survivability, and executing suppression and destruction of enemy air defenses.
The Electronic Systems’ ESM Capability Group is looking for a RF Systems Design engineer to work as part of a cross-functional, multi-disciplinary team to design, integrate, debug, and test next generation ESM systems. The work will be conducted at BAE Systems Electronic Combat Solutions division and responsibilities will include individual technical contributions on a related range of programs, system development, test planning and execution in a field deployment environment.
