Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Woburn, MA
2008 – Present Systems Engineer; AN/TPY-2 Radar System Test and Integration
-Currently part of a team responsible for calibrating a new AN/TPY-2 radar in a near-field range before shipping it to site to perform calibration and initial testing prior to customer hand-off
-Over the course of 10 months, lead a team of ~8 engineers through a successful radar testing event from start to finish
-This included presenting pre-mission (proving test readiness) and post-mission (proving test success) data analysis reports to chief engineers and the customer (Missile Defense Agency)
-Worked on teams of 4+ people performing radar system testing, running simulations and analyzing simulated and live data
-Assigned a task gathering radar inputs for radar testing missions, eventually learning to create these radar inputs for live radar test events and deployed radars (proficient in APEX, SVN)
-Was responsible for analyzing live radar data (using primarily MATLAB based tools) and producing reports for the customer and missile defense community
-Created numerous radar mission plans, which include designing search plan parameters and transmit waveforms for search, track, and discrimination
