Under the general direction of the Electronic Systems Group Lead, the Electronics Engineer and the electrical engineering team designs and develops systems used in underwater sonar. The work pertains primarily to development of custom hardware and embedded firmware and software used in data acquisition and power distribution electronic assemblies that reside in underwater environments.
1. Implement assigned projects and project tasks to provide electrical and computer engineering solutions including: schematic capture, PCB/PWB design, embedded C/C++ software design, and FGPA design (VHDL preferred)
2. Work in a laboratory environment integrating electronics. Familiarity with lab equipment such as oscilloscopes, function generators, DC power supplies, and thermal chambers.
3. Support documentation, verification, and validation used in producing, evaluating, testing and processing high fidelity data acquisition systems.
4. Perform technical review, design analysis, development and selection of hardware components
5. Modify existing hardware and software for obsolescence updates and bug fixes
6. Ensure that assigned project tasks are completed, meet established technical and schedule requirements and comply with company's quality system procedures. Identify and report quality problems in the assigned areas and recommend corrective action and/or alternative solutions to correct abnormal problems or trends that could jeopardize achievement of cost or schedule objectives.
7. Prepare design review material in support of SRR, PDR, CDR, FDR and technical audits for assigned designs.
8. Promote cordial relationships and foster and maintain a favorable business profile with customers, suppliers, co-workers, industry and professional associations, government agencies and the local community.
