Systems Group Overview
Candidate will be part of a team responsible for weapon system simulation and performance analysis. The team develops and integrates individual system models for analysis (threats, weapons, sensors) to include multiple interacting systems. This team contributes to defining, leading and performing analyses for requirements feasibility, sensitivity studies for threat variability and fidelity, asset planning and what-if scenarios, flight-test mission (requirements, planning, and analysis) support and certification efforts.
The group provides independent verification and validation support for internal system-level products. This offers opportunities to work with SEG sensors, vehicles, phenomenology products and engineers integrated within our simulation software development environment to view the battle environment scenes through the eyes of combat systems.
The group includes subject matter experts and technical leads providing direct technical support to various defense programs as a contributing member of broad cross-functional and technical subject-specific integrated product teams.
We bring threat and weapons knowledge together to support concept definition, threat driver assessments, system requirements, design reviews, test planning, and defining roadmaps for future development.

Since its beginnings in 1933, Telephonics has evolved from a small company devoted exclusively to supplying lower technology electronic products to the U.S. Department of Defense, to being recognized as a world leader in high technology electronic systems and sub-systems for military and commercial applications. Today, our advanced systems are successfully deployed around the world providing highly reliable situational awareness to our war-fighters and performing critical military missions. With today's heavy emphasis on Net-Centric military operations, the same innovative thinking and technologies that were incorporated in Telephonics' early communications developments, such as audio multiplexing and high noise environment audio headsets developed for military aircraft operations, form the basis for our current advanced, all digital, totally secure communications systems we provide our customers today. Over the years following 1933, our role has expanded further as we have added other airborne and ground based systems required on the modern battlefield to our portfolio. In addition, Telephonics' air traffic management systems help control air traffic in some of the most densely populated air spaces around the world.
