Description:This position will be an expatriate assignment located in Germany and be part of the Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control and MBDA Deutschland joint venture team to develop the next generation Integrated Air and Missile Defense System, "TLVS," for the German Bundeswehr. The joint venture will be the prime contractor for this new system, which is headquartered in Schrobenhausen, Germany. The company will also have operations in Dallas, Texas, Huntsville, Alabama, and Syracuse, New York, as well as locations in Ulm and Koblenz, Germany.

TLVS is a highly mobile ground-based air and missile defense system for protection against the current and future threat spectrum in the lower tier. TLVS is based on the technology and development results of the trinational MEADS air and missile defense system (US, Germany, Italy). The development of this latest generation air defense system was proven by the system demonstration in 2014. TLVS will be employed by Germany in the context of national and collective defense as well as for the protection of deployed troops, facilities and areas against all kinds of aerial threats including the interception of the latest generation of ballistic missiles. The individual components of the system are mounted on protected vehicles, offering high tactical mobility for the protection of mobile land forces.

In close coordination with their MBDA-Deutschland (MBDA-DE) counterpart, the MFCR/LRSS POT Lead will be directly responsible for the technical, cost, and schedule performance of the development two radars. The common architecture between the radar requires a single oversight authority to manage the efforts of LM/RMS, MBDA-Deutschland and Leonardo(Italy).
