Position Summary

Odyssey Systems has an exciting new opportunity for a Senior Electrical Sensors Engineer position supporting the ISR/SOF Divisions which consists of a diverse set of programs with equally diverse missions to meet a common goal: provide our warfighters with the best weapon systems possible in the most efficient and timely manner.  The Senior Electrical Sensors Engineer will support the Fixed Wing Branch HC/MC-130 Recapitalization Program.  This is an ACAT IC program designed to replace the aging fleet of Air Combat Command (ACC) HC-130P/N aircraft and Air Force (AF) Special Operations Command (AFSOC) MC-130E/H/P. The MC-130 Recap aircraft is a versatile multi-mission tactical airlifter, principally focused on providing the combatant commander with strategic reconnaissance, direct action, counterterrorism, and humanitarian relief capability. The Senior Electrical Sensors Engineer will focus mostly on the MC-130 Terrain Following Radar (MCTF) system.
