Leidos is seeking a Senior Communications Systems Engineer to join our team in St. Petersburg, FL. We are looking for an individual with emphasis on data links and radios who will perform system level trade studies.
The Navy's Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) is a real-time sensor netting system that enables high quality situational awareness and integrated fire control capability. It is designed to enhance the anti-air warfare (AAW) capability of U.S. Navy ships, U.S. Navy aircraft and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Composite Tracking Network (CTN) units by the netting of geographically dispersed sensors to provide a single integrated air picture, thus enabling Integrated Fire Control to destroy increasingly capable threat cruise missiles and aircraft. Leidos is partnered with the CEC prime contractor on present CEC design agent activities and Leidos directly supports Future Naval Capabilities (FNC) that aim to enhance CEC's present capabilities.
