SRC, Inc. is currently seeking an Electronic Warfare Engineer in our Charlottesville, VA office.  Our EW engineers produce electronic warfare integrated reprogramming database (EWIRDB) models that support many of our nation’s and allies’ most sophisticated military platforms. This role will directly support the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in radar model and scenario development for simulation in the Next-Generation Electronic Warfare Environment Generator (NEWEG) environment which will provide realistic, reactive, and real-time representations of live assets to a system under test for the purposes of test and evaluation (T&E).



  • Support organizations charged with exploiting EWIRDB information in order to develop weapon systems and electronic countermeasures and to formulate tactics and operational deployment strategies
  • Develop algorithm-driven reactive radar models to run automatically in a simulation environment
  • Work with the customer to develop requirements for model fidelity, function, and simulation fit
  • Develop scenarios and the required waveforms for simulation based on customer requirements
  • Understand the relationship between software-based models, simulation hardware, and their interaction to support real-time simulation
  • Evaluate and test previously developed EWIR models for NEWEG compatibility and performance
  • Support tests with the NAVAIR Electronic Combat Stimulation Branch (ECSTIM) in Patuxent River, MD and potentially other NEWEG customer locations


Position Requirements:

  • Education: Bachelor’s degree in engineering, physics, mathematics or related technical field
  • Experience: Three or more (3+) years of related experience in EWIRDB, T&E, EW simulation/stimulator, or the intelligence community

  • Understanding of antenna design/analysis, radar signal processing, and radar requirements analysis
  • Active secret security clearance
  • Military experience is a plus
