In order to apply for this or any other job you will need to log in.

Position Description

Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented Missile Simulation C++ Programmer to join a diverse team to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions. 

The Missile Simulation C++ Programmer will support reverse-engineering and testing of foreign infrared seekers. This work includes developing software and hardware solutions to integrate foreign weapons into a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. The objective of this development is to assess threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against U.S. systems that oppose it.

Tasks will include developing real-time software models in C++ to simulate analog and digital missile subsystems, implementing algorithms that meet real-time constraints, and troubleshooting hardware test benches. Candidates will work closely with software and hardware reverse-engineering teams to understand missile tracking, guidance, and counter-countermeasure algorithms for creation of accurate models. Following development and integration, performance of custom solutions will be validated against actual threat hardware. Once complete, efforts will continue toward testing countermeasures against the threat system, in order to ensure its defeat in combat.

The Foreign Weapon Systems branch goals include the characterization, analysis, testing, and ultimate defeat of all types of threat weapons systems including foreign missiles and radars. This group concentrates primarily on electrical, sensor, optical, and firmware aspects of the systems, but will engage any part of the system that advances our goals. This is hands-on work involving actual threat weapon hardware. Our team develops equipment to control and test these threats in a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. We also specialize in the development of countermeasure concepts and equipment.
