Includes antenna design, both reflector and array systems, frequency synthesizers, transmitters, and receivers.
Additional responsibilities include:
* Designs RF antenna systems based on customer specifications such as G/T, bandwidth, group delay, gain flatness, up/down conversion schemes, intermodulation produdcts, P1 dB and saturation power, etc.
Performs antenna analysis, including antenna efficiency and gain, VSWR, and radiation patterns.
Writes component specifications and interfaces with vendors to write test procedures.
Designs, develops, modifies, and evaluates microwave devices and systems.
Ensures that MW product designs meet company and/or customer requirements in terms of costs, performance, and manufacturability of end products.
Development responsibilities include the design of microwave antennas and its integration with passive components including baluns, power dividers, diplexers, impedance matching networks, hybrids, and filters.
Effectively transfers antenna designs to manufacturing, and ensures products meet specifications and quality requirements.
Ensures that designs are suitable for volume manufacture.
Supports or leads the generation of specification and test documents, creates original electrical designs, and works jointly with Mechanical Engineering, CAD Designers, Machine Shop and Manufacturing to ensure efficient manufacturing of hardware.
Conducts and supervises prototype development and testing using state-of-the-art testing facilities.
