Position Role Type:
About Us: At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers. Job Summary: The Mechanical Analysis and Test Department is responsible for ensuring the capability and positive thermal margin of all RMD Products. From the preliminary concept to fielded weapon support, MA&T delivers innovative and robust thermal analysis solutions utilizing methods ranging from classical fundamental and proprietary empirically based techniques to state-of-the-art finite element methods and commercial computer codes; all complimented and validated by tests executed in a manner to ensure cost effective yet technically balanced solutions. A thermal analyst in the MA&T Department has a vast set of responsibilities related to heat transfer and aerodynamic heating of attachment variety of different types of hardware on all the RMD projects. The Thermal Analyst is responsible for detailed Thermal analysis to support all phases of programs including development and production. The analyses will cover a wide range of difficult problems, requiring solutions that are imaginative, thorough, practicable, and consistent with organization objectives. The analysis tasks will span the spectrum from classical hand analyses to detailed analyses requiring the use of finite element analysis software. This position is expected to have a high level of technical competence and be a recognized technical leader and/or leader of teams of engineering analysts. Thus, the selected candidate will work under only very general direction and will be expected to define the scope and level of analysis required to meet required objectives and assist in program planning. The thermal analyst will be held accountable for completing his/her work and the work of others on his/her team within the agreed upon cost and schedule. The selected candidate will be expected to present their work for peer reviews and to be a peer reviewer for other engineers' work. The customers of this position will include internal personnel and programs as well as external Government(s) personnel and programs. The selected candidate will work with the customer and engineering leadership to define testing required to validate Thermal analyses and to verify that hardware is compliant with requirements. The analyst is expected to plan and support tests, perform data reduction, and engage in thermal model correlation. A thermal analyst in this role will also be expected to assist with proposal preparation including estimating the scope of new engineering projects. Responsibilities to Anticipate:
-Perform Hand Calculations to determine scope of higher detail analysis models
-Perform detailed analysis to solve diverse program thermal challenges
-Perform peer reviews of all analysis to validate process and results
-Document results according to RMD standards
-Deliver results to customers
-Act as a technical leader (help define/refine and/or develop MA&T department technical processes and tools) and/or lead analysis/test teams

ABET is the preferred accreditation standard. An advanced degree in a related field may be substituted for additional 3 years of experience.

  • 8 years of thermal analysis experience

  • Thermal Analysis Experience using at least one of these tools PATRAN, Thermal Desktop/SINDA or ANSYS, or equivalent.

  • Understanding of thermodynamic principles to solve classical thermal analysis solutions both inside and outside of finite element tools.

  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance prior to the start date. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.

    Qualifications We Value:

    • Ten (10) or more years of experience in the thermal analysis of complex systems that require collaboration of multiple engineering disciplines (such as a weapon system)

    • Earned Value Management System knowledge.

    • Ability to work independently and manage multiple priorities.

    • Experience in Electronics Cooling and Aerodynamic Heating Analyses

    • Strong interpersonal skills working in a team environment with positive interaction.

    • Ability to travel to government and other facilities in support of program activities.

    • Demonstrated experience in leading thermal testing: Planning, organization, execution, data reduction and correlation.

    • Advanced degree in disciplines. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.

    • Experience making presentation to external customers.

    • Experience as a technical leader and/or leader of engineering teams

    • Proposal development experience.

    • Proficiency with engineering workstations running Windows and Office suite.
