AECOM EW Lead System Engineer in Fallon, Nevada
United States of America - Nevada, Fallon
Position is contingent based upon availability.
The Electronic Warfare (EW) Lead Engineer provides engineering oversight and direction to a team of engineers and field engineers. They perform integration and maintenance on over 30 Foreign Military Equipment (FME) threat systems at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon. The EW Lead may also be the primary engineer on projects that are technically complex. The Lead will supervise a team of 8-10 personnel.
The EW Lead Engineer reports to the Engineering Manager who, in turn, supervises a team of about 25 other engineers, including the EW team. This is a dynamic environment and a place to use the skills you’ve developed in leading people. Come and be part of this group and be prepared to work with individuals who make daily impacts to our nation’s readiness.
The EW team is responsible for instrumenting newly acquired FME systems with the diagnostics, tools, and telemetry that allows the new equipment to communicate with a major Control and Debriefing Center. This Center provides feedback to pilots flying against the range systems. The team also supports EW technicians when more complex issues crop up in maintaining these systems.
The EW team implements project tasks for engineering upgrades, range reconfigurations (moving threat systems to new locations), testing, and new facility buildups.
The EW team is also responsible for Configuration Management of the FME systems. We work with an automated CM database so that versioning control is maintained on the FME. The types of data recorded include all modifications to equipment, facilities and/or change requests to improve operability/reliability/ maintainability of the FME.
Note: NAS Fallon supports several Carrier Air Group (CAG) exercises a year. A CAG is made up of many of the planes on an aircraft carrier, along with the associated Operations and Maintenance personnel. It’s not unusual for a CAG to come to Fallon with over 3000 people in tow. The CAG training provided at Fallon is considered to be invaluable because of the depth and breadth of the threat systems resident on the range.
NAS Fallon range area encompasses 232,500 acres. The FME systems are spread across this area and can be re-located to provide different scenarios to the pilots. The NAS Fallon air envelope comprises over 6.5 million acres of airspace. This provides the room needed for training without worrying about encroaching on civilian airspace.
