Lockheed Martin Signature (Stealth) Engineer Asc - Entry Level in Fort Worth, Texas
COVID-19 continues to significantly impact our employees, families and communities. With employee health and safety as our top priority, and as a federal contractor, Lockheed Martin is taking action to address the increased risk and uncertainty COVID variants pose in the workplace and ensuring we meet our commitments to national security.
As directed by Executive Order 14042: Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, effective December 8, 2021, Lockheed Martin will require all newly hired employees, in the United States, must be fully vaccinated before their start date.
Description: Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company and its research and development line-of-business, The Skunk Works, seeks a motivated and enthusiastic candidate to join the Low Observables team (Signature Management & Survivability).
Specifically, we seek to identify a candidate with expertise or willingness to learn one of the following disciplines:
- Aircraft stealth signature reduction and low observables (LO) phenomenology
- Radar cross section (RCS) susceptibility
- Infrared (IR), Visual, Acoustic, and/or radar cross section (RCS) susceptibility
- Electromagnetics (EM), computational electromagnetics (CEM), IR metamaterial design, solid-state physics, photonics, and/or optics
- Advanced material measurement and characterization
- RF testing and validation
The candidate will be working in a high-paced environment responsible for low observable technology maturation lifecycle from initial concept, internal research and development (IRAD) project execution, modeling and simulation, prototype build and test, external customer communication and marketing, proposal and contract capture, contract research and development (CRAD) leadership, and transition to production fleet. The candidate will work independently and in small teams and participate in Government forums and internal Skunk Works program reviews as an emerging LO signature advisor.
Typical responsibilities may include:
- Responsible for performing, analyzing, and communicating vehicle signature predictions using Unix-based codes and tools.
- Responsible for taking laboratory measurements of material coupons to determine physical, electrical, and/or environmental properties.
- Engagement in the research, design, computational electromagnetic modeling, fabricating, and testing of advanced electromagnetic metamaterials.
- Performing, post-processing, and communicating results of laboratory, field, flight, and vehicle signature measurements.
- Writing and using scripts to batch analysis and post-processing.
- Engagement in the algorithm development, test, and maintenance of signature prediction tools using python, C++, C#, Java, and Fortran.
The position requires strong verbal and written communication skills for final reports and technical briefings to large groups. An ability to explain complex technical concepts in a readily comprehensible manner is an advantage. The candidate will be expected to develop and execute R&D plans to meet needs defined by management or by the customer. The candidate will participate in multidisciplinary design teams to solve challenging aircraft survivability problems.
A Security Clearance will be required for those that apply and the candidate must ultimately qualify for a Top Secret clearance.
- A Bachelor’s degree or above in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or Optical Engineering
- Some experience or coursework in programming with C/C++, Java, Fortran, Matlab, or Python
- Must be a US Citizen; this position will require a government security clearance. This position is located at a facility that requires special access.
The following attributes are desired/preferred but not required for consideration:
- Active DoD Top Secret Security Clearance, TS//SCI, or Secret Security Clearance
- Master’s degree or above in one of the following fields: Engineering, Physics, or Optics
- Previous experience in low observables (LO), survivability, or susceptibility
- Experience in infrared (IR) signature, IR cameras/sensors, radar cross section (RCS), or radio-frequency (RF) antenna design
- Expertise in LO modeling and predictions: Computational electromagnetics (CEM), Hybrid Finite Element, Boundary Integral method (FE-BI), Method of Moments (MoM), HFSS, CST Microwave Studio, FDTD, EO/IR
- Experience with LO integration / multi-discipline air vehicle systems design
- Knowledge of RADAR, RF materials, RF material measurements
- Programming with C/C++, Java, Fortran, Matlab, Python
- CAD software literacy for model cleanup and meshing
