Job Description

Gauss Management Research and Engineering (GMRE) is seeking a C-130 Electrical Engineer (CNI Avionics Systems) to perform professional electrical engineering work involved in the application of advanced theories, concepts, principles, and processes to the acquisition, development, or sustainment of weapon systems, subsystems, and/or support equipment. The C-130 Electrical Engineer shall function as the organization's technical specialist in developing system performance requirements, objectives and integration, and the estimation of time and resources for system design, development, and support. They perform complex and comprehensive analysis and uses systematic, disciplined, and quantifiable approaches to implement, develop, and document projects.

  • Applies expert knowledge and mastery of advanced engineering theories, principles, concepts, standards, and methods to ensure assigned projects remain consistent with program objectives, costs, schedules, performance criteria, and existing policies.
  • Plans, organizes, directs, and coordinates significant and complex projects related to communication, navigation, and surveillance which represent critical segments of major operating programs.
  • Provides expertise related to systems, equipment, integration, and overall functionality of electronic circuits, circuit elements, and phenomena associated with electromagnetic or acoustical wave energy or electrical information for purposes providing communication, computation, sensing, control, measurement, and navigation.
  • Performs duties involved in research, development, testing, evaluation, operation, maintenance, and/or directing the fabrication, manufacture, and installation of electronic devices or systems.
  • Researches, analyzes, and determines available options or the feasibility of different advanced approaches to resolve complex program issues; defines concepts and criteria for future programs or resolves major controversial problems in current programs. Provides innovative recommendations to alter standard practices, equipment, devices, processes, and known techniques.
  • Formulates and develops new products and/or theories pertaining to new applications of existing products, e.g. COTS/NDI, to define requirements and assess complexity of integration; including impact of new technology on current systems and processes. Systematically applies expertise in electronics engineering to create new or substantially improved equipment, materials, instrumentation, devices, systems, processes, techniques, and/or procedures.
  • Applies experimental theories, new applications or developments to improve operations and/or resolve unique or complex/controversial problems, conditions, or issues.
  • Administers the resources required to execute projects, and may adjust funding, schedules, and work based on project reviews.
  • Applies an extensive knowledge of the field of electronics engineering and an expert knowledge of the assigned subject matter or functional area to resolve unique or novel problems related to design and development engineering.
  • Plans, analyzes, and evaluates engineering and technical efforts used to define total weapons system/subsystem requirements, translate requirements into design criteria, evaluate alternative design approaches, and develop the system specifications.
  • Performs analysis and integrates technical requirements, directives, and program plans in support of assigned projects/programs in systems engineering.
  • Prepares and reviews detailed specifications, drawings, and supporting documents, evaluates proposals, and presents conclusions and recommendations.
  • Evaluates performance with respect to program requirements, evaluates design changes to assess effects on performance, and recommends changes to reduce system cost.
  • Coordinates special studies and tradeoff analyses for design changes, recommends solutions to technical problems, and recommends different engineering approaches through the development phase and into production. Analyzes systems/equipment to ensure functional and operational integrity, reliability, and ensure nominal performance/cost relationships.
  • Integrates multiple acquisition and/or logistics functions to implement program management strategy.
  • Accomplishes complex engineering projects related to systems engineering for which existing guidelines may not be available or applicable.
  • Constructs standards and test plans; devises methods, processes, and procedures that become established models for the activity.
  • Responsible for executing significant projects representing an important segment of agency programs and provides technical guidance, direction, and advice to engineers in the same specialty.
