About Us

Many of today’s military assets rely heavily on stealth technology to effectively execute their mission. Operating primarily in the Defense industry, Sensor Concepts (SCI) provides our customers with the confidence that their stealth asset is mission ready. We achieve this by providing integrated measurement systems which are highly capable, portable and easy to operate. These integrated measurement systems utilize radar technology to measure and to help maintain the radar signature (radar cross section or ‘RCS’) of our customer’s asset. Our products are used throughout the lifecycle of stealth assets, starting in R&D and continuing through manufacturing and extending to the operational environment.

Sensor Concepts, LLC is part of the Raptor Scientific Corporation, a global Aerospace & Defense test and measurement company with a focus on electronic and mechanical testing products and solutions. The SCI engineering team consists of multi-disciplined individuals with expertise in electronics (analog, digital, RF/microwave), mechanical systems, software/firmware development (UI/UX, automation control logic, processing algorithms), test & measurement and field service. Cross-discipline assignments are encouraged in order to develop the skills necessary to provide the customer with the optimal total system solution. Extensive field measurement experience helps SCI develop products that excel in challenging field environments. Supported by a talented administrative staff, SCI thrives in the current "quick reaction" business environment and prides itself with on-time deliveries.

Your Role

As part of the Product Management team, you will be instrumental in developing technical documentation for both existing and new products. You will work closely with the product and engineering teams to gain hands-on experience using the product and to ensure that the documentation accurately describes the appropriate level of detail. You will create both internal and external facing documentation which may be in the form of user manuals, brochures, application notes or training materials as a few examples. Documentation may include description of complex hardware and software design elements as well as overall system operation, maintenance and troubleshooting. This position requires proactive self-motivation to remain disciplined and focused in the development of documentation and a high level of creativity to improve the development process.
