Raytheon Technologies Corporation is an aerospace and defense company that provides advanced systems and services for commercial, military and government customers worldwide. It comprises four industry-leading businesses – Collins Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon Intelligence & Space and Raytheon Missiles & Defense. Pratt & Whitney is a pioneer in flight and in technology, a company steeped in history yet focused on the future. Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines and auxiliary power units. Over the years, Pratt & Whitney has patented hundreds of innovations, from heat-resistant coatings to aerodynamic blades - technologies that make air travel safer, more comfortable and more dependable. Its large commercial engines power nearly 30 percent of the world’s mainline passenger aircraft fleet and thirty-four armed forces around the world use its military engines.

Primary Responsibilities:

Work for the Engine Diagnostics, Prognostics and Health Management Team (DPHM) which provides end-to-end solutions to improve aircraft reliability while reducing operating costs.

Today’s flight monitoring systems are designed to automatically record critical flight parameters and provide visibility to events or exceedances, which helps the operator to make informed decisions about preventive maintenance, thereby reducing unscheduled maintenance, lowering operating costs, and increasing aircraft availability.

DPHMS’ advance diagnostic solutions provide true value-added benefits that enable the operator to determine the best time to undertake maintenance on the engine and airframe, which can minimize costs by allowing for component repair instead of replacement and maximize engine time on wing.

This position description is focused on the airborne equipment development segment of the DPHM portfolio.

Lead electronic hardware design & certification efforts for a variety of aircraft and engine applications.

Lead a holistic understanding of electronic product development, from customer requirements, H/W & S/W partitioning, interface with other LRUs, package design for manufacturability and compliance with aviation standards.

Provide systems level leadership for hardware and software partitioning and integration requirements.

Develop airborne product specifications, technical drawings, environmental qualification test plans and engineering reports in accordance with DO160G standards.

Coordinate with Software Engineers in the development and automated testing of embedded applications software.

Coordinate with external contract resources to complete detailed engineering analysis and/or product certification or reliability testing.

Create and change 3D CAD drawings and models of production products. Issue technical documentation and conduct airborne product reviews compliant with internal P&WC General Equipment Specifications and Standards.

Continuously improve products through design enhancements and software upgrades through change management tools.

Identify and propose new product concepts and enhancements as well as manage component obsolescence risks for fielded products.

Support manufacturing and field installation requirements and lead efforts for continuous process improvements.

Lead updates to internal procedures to retain compliance with FAA, ISO and AS requirements.

Lead continuous product cost optimization initiatives.

At least 6 years of experience in design and development of electronic products

At least 5 years of experience with embedded microcontrollers, high performance microprocessors and peripheral electronics design, including timing analysis and signal integrity

At least 4 years of experience working with printed circuit board layout for EMI source control and thermal management techniques

At least 4 years of experience with performing electronic circuit performance, thermal, and reliability analyses

At least 4 years of experience with electronic test and measurement equipment and familiar with DO160G environmental qualification standards

At least 4 years of design experience in analog measurement, highspeed digital circuits, and FPGA firmware development including application of DO-254 standards.

Requires expert or mastery level knowledge of work area, typically obtained through advanced education combined with experience.

May have deep knowledge of project management. Advanced knowledge of related disciplines within work area and

ability to identify links and potential impact on projects, programs

or systems.
