At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers.
The Algorithm & Simulation (A&S) Directorate is responsible for algorithm development including Guidance, Navigation, and Control; radio frequency (RF) and electro-optical/infrared (EO-IR) Signal Processing; and missile-and-sensor-level Modeling and Simulation for RMD's broad portfolio of projects, programs, and products. The Flight Sciences department, within Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) is looking for motivated and dependable engineers with experience in flight control system design, integration support, and performance assessment for missile systems to perform in the role of Aerodynamic Design Engineer at our Tucson, AZ location.
We value diverse skills and experience, so don't hold back. Your qualifications could add tremendous value to our team. Our customers come from all different backgrounds, and so do our employees. If you're passionate about what you could accomplish here, we'd love to hear from you.
Responsibilities to Anticipate:
- The Aerodynamic Design Engineer will support design, prediction, modeling and analysis of missile systems in subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flight regimes.
In this role, you will use various tools to model and predict aerodynamic integrated force and moments on vehicles as well as component aero loads for structural and stability and control analysis.
You will be responsible for maximizing the fidelity of aerodynamics modeling and analysis using data from empirical tools, CFD and wind tunnel sources.
You may be responsible for the planning and execution of wind tunnel testing, and the creation and implementation of wind tunnel data derived models into the 6-dof performance simulation. In this capacity you will be involved in the design of flight test profiles for the verification and validation of 6-dof performance simulations.
You will enable the successful completion of significant program efforts and represent the organization as an embedded authority on program efforts within the field of aerodynamics.

Experience coding in Matlab, C++ and/or Python
The ability to obtain and maintain a U.S. security clearance prior to the start date. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance
Qualifications We Value:
Bachelor’s or Advanced degree in Engineering (especially Aerospace or Mechanical)
Existing U.S. security clearance
Aerodynamics experience with supersonic or hypersonic air vehicles
Experience with Metacomp Technologies’ CFD++, Pointwise, and either Fieldview or Tecplot
Experience with Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) analysis and Large Eddy Simulation (LES)
Knowledge of and experience with verification and validation techniques
Experience working on multidisciplinary teams
Strong interpersonal skills and ability to communicate effectively with senior leadership and other engineering disciplines
