Members of the Electrical Design Directorate hold key roles in all of Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) programs. The work performed in the Electrical Design Directorate falls within many different categories. An example of the work that is performed within one of the departments in this directorate is working with phased array antenna design teams who analyze array performance, examine time side lobes, noise figure, noise floor, and other parameters. This would require someone that is familiar with numerical modeling techniques and tools so that they could determine the impact of array performance on radar or communication system performance. Working in this directorate involves close cooperation and communication with other engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical, and software. Engineers in this directorate also follow through their designs into production supporting manufacturing operations and system integration and test functions. Teamwork, trust and accurate results are essential to the success of working within the Electrical Design Directorate. 157165
