What You’ll Get to Do:
Support technical intelligence (TECHINT), media exploitation (MEDEX), cell phone exploitation (CELLEX), electronic exploitation (ELEX), and other unique exploitation missions.
Conduct electronic analyses of target devices, including functional analyses of the target devices, understand and describe how the target functions from an electronic perspective – basic signaling characteristics; voltage levels; electrical connections; electrical modifications to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware; logic states; operating frequencies; component configuration identification; operating profiles/modes; operation in noisy electromagnetic environments; and susceptibility.
Serve as subject matter expert in RF characterization.
Publish reports and briefings in order to present characterization information, electronics vulnerabilities, and exploitation recommendations.
Work with a team to respond to RFI’s and determine best consolidated solutions to problems.
Design and implement characterization standard operating procedures (SOPs) and implement SOPs in daily functions.
You’ll Bring These Qualifications:
Active Secret clearance and obtain a TS/SCI.
BA/BS and 3 years experience (OR) Associates degree and 5yrs experience (OR) High School and 8 years of experience.
An understanding of RF communications, with a particular emphasis on complete characterization of electronic circuits.
Extensive experience in electronics engineering.

Perform standard RF measurements (e.g. occupied bandwidth, average power, pulse width) using the previous listed test equipment.
These Qualifications Would be Nice to Have:
Experience in reverse engineering electronic devices from start to finish
Experience in reverse engineering electronic components and circuit boards.
Experience supporting exploitation and modeling and simulation tool development.
Working knowledge of software defined radios (SDR), such as the Ettus B210 and x310. Able to interface with such units in order to transmit or receiver RF signals.
Basic Matlab (and other basic programming/scripting) skills, should be able to apply digital signal processing techniques to communication signals. Techniques include digital filtering, sample rate conversion, frequency/phase estimation, demodulation, carrier recovery, timing recovery, channel equalization, pulse shaping, and forward error correction.
Experience working with embedded systems such as Arduino and writing programs leveraging the SPI bus to configure and analyze various chipsets.
