Northrop Grumman needs Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3)
engineers to team up and help lead the E3 design, development, and
analysis of complex electronic products for space systems.
At Northrop Grumman Space Systems E3 engineering is the impact of
the electromagnetic environment upon the operational capability of
components, assemblies, equipment, subsystems, systems, and other
space platforms. E3 covers all electromagnetic disciplines,
including electromagnetic compatibility (EMC); electromagnetic
interference (EMI); electromagnetic vulnerability (EMV);
electromagnetic pulse (EMP); electrostatic discharge (ESD);
electronic protection; hazards of electromagnetic radiation to
personnel, ordnance, and volatile materials; and natural phenomena
effects such as lightning and p-static.
- Work across diverse engineering disciplines in support of
multiple space system programs. Northrop Grumman E3 engineers
deliver valued oversight across all phases of a program from origin
to orbit. To meet these challenges at Northrop Grumman an E3
engineer must have a strong aptitude for learning new and exciting
innovations and a strong E3 skill set.
- Interact across all phases of a program, so strong technical
communication skills and a readiness to explain complex technical
issues with brevity to an audience unfamiliar with the E3 topic are
- Writing, interpreting, allocating, tailoring, and flowing down
E3 requirements to all design levels.
- Present at design reviews to internal and external customers
regarding E3 issues.
- Writing E3 design guidelines, developing models and performing
analyses on components, subsystems and systems using EMI
- Designing ground systems, chassis and harness shielding, EMI
filters, and selecting and laying out interface circuitry for
- Prepare and review E3 test procedures, E3 test reports, E3
technical analyses, E3 control plans, and participate in cross
discipline design reviews for EMC.
- Verify E3 requirements, E3 engineers need to design E3 test
procedures and participate in E3 testing in accordance with
governmental and non-governmental standards, for example MIL-STD
461, MIL-STD 464, DO-160, NASA-GEVS-7000 and other commercial
- Maintain and build on Space System's reputation for E3
expertise and quality by training and mentoring less experience E3

Technology, Engineering, Math) discipline with 5 years of
- Working knowledge of MIL-STD 461, MIL-STD 464, NASA-GEVS-7000
and other E3 space requirement standards.
- Demonstrated ability to successfully allocate, tailor, and
flowdown system level E3 requirements into lower-level
- The ability to perform E3 design and analysis.
- Working knowledge of lab test equipment such as spectrum
analyzers, generators, amplifiers, and measurement antennas.This
position can be filled level higher (Senior Principal E3 Systems
Engineer) with a BS Degree in Electrical Engineering & 9 years of
