Quality Engineering at a Glance
Our products take a beating. They really do….
Whether sitting under the nose of a Blackhawk helicopter in the heat of a desert airstrip, or subjected to persistent saltwater spray atop the mast of a naval patrol ship, operating in sub-zero high-attitude temperatures while on a covert airborne surveillance mission or the relentless heat and dust from a rapidly moving national guard desert convoy.
Our focus is on delivering confidence that quality requirements are fulfilled at all stages of production, with higher reliability and greater speed, so that our systems can continue to be counted on, in any condition.
Our team consists of three primary Quality teams:
Supplier Quality and Quality Engineers focus on the earliest production stages of our optical systems by working with hundreds of suppliers to ensure design for quality is embedded in their processes to ensure repeatability, predictability and scalability.
Our Quality Analysts pour through tremendous quality-based data in order to understand, interpret and socialize that data back to our Quality and various engineering teams at WESCAM for potential opportunities for improvement.
Finally, our Quality Specialist anchor the production stages by ensuring that our build/assembly process is perfected from a component perspective (15000 individual components make up one system) and work towards identifying and eliminating potential failures.

Domain Expertise We Look For
Each Quality Engineering area require varying depths of experience and skills, but there are some common elements we seek:
* Quality Assurance experience within Assembly, Manufacturing or Supplier environments
* AS9100 standards and understanding why they exist
* The relationship between Quality standards and processes
* FAI – First Article Inspections
* How NCR (Non-Conformance Reporting) and MRB (Material Review Boards) are incorporated into the Quality process
* Principles of 8D, Fishbone, Five-Why and PFMEA
* Advanced Excel skills / Trend Analysis
Also, the ability to play a musical instrument is also high on the list – we have 7 in-company bands and we’re always looking for a guitar lead or a drummer.
