As our Phased Array Feed Design Engineer, you will be responsible for the design and prototyping of phased array feeds for electronically steered antennas.
- Phased Array Antenna Design
- Design of the elemental antennas for a phased array
- Experience forming beams on multiple phase centers
- Phased Array Feed or Phase Array Fed Reflector
DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Design, prototype, and test phased array feeds for high gain antennas.
- Generate patentable new technologies by starting from first principles to create novel antenna systems that have little or no prior art.
- Model RF system behavior and validate RF system performance.
- Work with teammates to integrate antennas with RF circuits.
- Develop test methods, facilities, and techniques appropriate to the new technologies you invent.
- Do performance and cost tradeoff analyses.
- Evaluate and test new components and technologies.
- Contribute to all phases of the antenna development life cycle, including requirements definition, systems and circuit design, integration of RF and wireless circuits and systems, testing, and manufacturing activities.
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE:
- Bachelors or higher in Electrical Engineering
- Design of elemental antennas and use of microstrip techniques, preferably at high frequencies between 10.7 GHz and 51.4 GHz.
- Demonstrable knowledge and application of physics principles (like optics and antenna theory) in microwave systems.
- Familiarity with RF concepts like propagation calculations, noise figure, intermodulation, etc.
- Understanding of analog components and their limitations (e.g. power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, mixers, and filters).
- Experience modeling and simulating antenna structures, radomes, feed networks, and other microwave components.
- Expertise in one or more EM simulation tool like HFSS or CST.
