Smaller vessels are being proposed as the best way for navies to face
ever-tightening budgets. There is now a huge range of options available
within the small warships market. Is the best option to include as much
technology and weaponry available as you can? What about the vast array
of propulsion choices available? Is it best to opt for maximum
capability or will refits and more economical vessels prove to be the
better option?

Synthetic aperture radar
Surface moving target indication
Foliage and ground penetration
Ballistic missile defense
Although radar engineers will not undertake detailed designs of reduced
RCS treatments or of radar hardware (such as antennas and receivers), a
working knowledge of these areas and of the underlying principles of
electromagnetics and signal propagation is highly desirable.

PhD in engineering or physical sciences OR
MS with thesis in engineering
Specific technical skills preferred:

Background in some or all of the following areas is desirable:

Survivability analysis for aircraft and weapons systems
Radar performance analysis
Low observables and counter low observables
