ISEA Engineering/Electronics Technician IV/V


ISEA staff are responsible for troubleshooting, testing, installing and maintaining hardware components specific to the AN/BQQ-10 SONAR System across all variations and its peripheral subsystems.  Some of the technician’s daily tasking includes configuring testing for both bench top, simulated shipboard and shipboard configurations, conducting electrical component and subsystem bench testing to verify functionality of equipment, developing specialized testing equipment to simulate/stimulate equipment for in-lab testing/fault isolation, maintaining inventory of repair parts, providing System Matter Expertise where applicable, and possibly providing in-person or distance technical support to fleet submarines.

The right candidate is technically oriented and proficient in relation to electronic component assembly and test, interpreting wiring diagrams and schematics, and finding and correcting issues with hardware components.  Candidate will work closely with our team in order to ensure hardware troubleshooting efforts are completed successfully and safely.  Given the inherently complex nature of the equipment, the technician will often need to employ intuitive and innovative troubleshooting methods to correct issues.

The ISEA team is an integral part to both NUWC Code 15’s and MIKEL, Inc.’s collective missions, and as such holds an important place among various Naval entities.
