***Job opportunities***

July/August 2018 timeframe at Patuxent River MD.

There will be one contractor and one government position.  The ideal candidate need not be a Chief.  It can be any paygrade so long as they meet the general criteria.  The ideal candidate would be a sailor with aircraft communication experience (AT/ET/IT). The positions will support a communications upgrade program retrofitting older ARC-210 radios with a new generation variant on various aircraft platforms.  The candidate should have a good understanding of the ARC-210 family of radios, general knowledge of communication systems (radios, controls, cryptographic, antennas, and various anti-jam capabilities).  A technical degree is desirable but not required.
