Vectrus is a rapidly growing industry leader, providing professional services support to both the government and the private sector. Our core competencies include engineering, logistics, IT and mission critical support services. We provide solutions to a broad range of customers including the DoD, DHS, IRS, FAA and the Intelligence Community.

This position provides support to various DoD customers in Virginia and Maryland. The position is for an Electrical Engineer to support RF engineering and analysis efforts. The position requires RF Engineering background in Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing and evaluations, and MATLAB or other analysis tool use skills, with preferred knowledge in wireless communication systems (both fixed and mobile), radar systems, link budgets, coupling analysis, antenna, and propagation theories.

All candidates must hold an active DoD Security Clearance.

Potential to be on travel for 7-10 days for RF Engineering Test events. Function in an office environment in a stationary position approximately 75 percent of the time or more, but also requires working in a Naval Industrial environment for planned test events. Domestic and International travel is required, approximately 25% of the time or less.


  • Conduct analyses of DoD radar, communication systems and commercial 5G NR & 4G LTE systems to identify EMI impact, EMC performance, and exclusion zones.
  • Calculate link budget and coupling analysis to identify operating capabilities and feasibilities of DoD or other spectrum dependent systems.
  • Interface with program offices to gather information and conduct tests on communication and radar systems.
  • Assist in the review and development of algorithms to model modulation and demodulation of waveforms for communications, radar, navigational aids, and radars and to assess the performance of various radio frequency systems to undesired signals.
  • RF testing equipment, such as Spectrum Analyzers, Network Analyzers, Signal Generators, Antennas.


  • All candidates must hold an active DoD Security Clearance.
  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE), Electrical Engineering Technology (BSEET), Computer Engineering or Physics required.
  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE), Computer Engineering or Physics desired.
  • Academic and/or professional experience in Electrical or RF Engineering required.

Minimum of four (4) years of experience in the following required:
  • Electrical Engineering and analysis in the operation, software modeling and evaluation of RF systems compatibility, EMI and EMC performance.
  • Preparation of spectrum dependent hardware/software/firmware installation plans, test plans/reports, conducting analytical evaluation of systems' RF compatibility, and development of actionable EMC techniques.

  • Minimum of two (2) years of experience in the following required:
  • RF spectrum measurement.
  • RF test equipment operation.
  • EMI / EMC criteria for operational spectrum coordination.

  • Experience:
