Position, Navigation, and Timing Engineer
The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) technology? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to working with clients to identify problems, generate solutions, and communicate results. We're looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to perform a variety of support tasks that may include data analysis, algorithm development, simulation, and modeling of PNT systems. Our team develops programmatic strategies for complex PNT problems. That's why we need you, an electrical engineer with knowledge of PNT systems and digital signal processing (DSP) methods, to help us evaluate resiliency tools and practices for PNT systems. We'll look to you to share your expertise in electrical engineering through leadership and mentoring of non-technical staff as needed. This is a chance to use your experience-based knowledge in PNT and DSP while broadening your skillset into areas like Cyber resiliency. Join us and take on exciting challenges in PNT as we advance the state of resiliency within the Homeland Security Enterprise. Empower change with us.
