Full-Time Entry-Level Job

Position: Electronics Engineer
Employer: U.S. Army Research Laboratory
UMBCworks ID#: 9225235 (access UMBCworks via the Services tab in myUMBC; once logged in search with this ID number under the Jobs tab)


Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD with occasional travel to Fort Monmouth, NJ.


The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army's corporate basic and applied research laboratory. Our mission is to provide innovative science, technology, and analysis to enable full-spectrum operations. ARL consists of the Army Research Office and six Directorates.

Of the six, the Survivability/Lethality Analysis Directorate (SLAD) is the Army's primary source of survivability, lethality, and vulnerability analysis and evaluation support including:

- Development of RF and IR countermeasure models for inclusion in Engineering and Manufacturing Development digital and Hardware-in- the-Loop simulations

- Early information operations and electronic warfare (EW) assessments to support Future Combat Systems design.

Within SLAD, the Electronic Warfare Branch does the following:

- Performs EW threat investigations

- Performs theoretical EW investigations (Matlab)

- Conducts EW laboratory investigations of radio communication systems

- Conducts signal analysis of the radio signals, looking for innovative ways to exploit the signal

- Prepares laboratory tools for lab tests; operates signal generators, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers; operates and updates automated processes to control signal generators, collect data. Operates, maintains and updates radio message traffic generators; designs/constructs circuit boards as required to support laboratory set ups


Support the Electronic Warfare (EW) Branch of the IEP Division of ARL/SLAD through EW investigations of radio communication systems. These investigations consist of evaluations of state of the art signal processing techniques used to enhance radio performance such as error correction techniques, sophisticated modulation techniques (m-ary phase shift keying, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)), spread spectrum techniques such as frequency hopping and direct sequence, 802 series of technologies such as WiMAX and WiMAX like implementations.

Investigations also include evaluations of radio network algorithms in EW environments such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR).

The EW Branch uses Matlab to model and conduct investigations of specific radio designs.

This organization has also created laboratory tools to support EW investigations of radio signal and network processes, the Communications EW Instrumentation System (CEWIS), and Communications EW Network Analyzer (CEWNA).
