Job Description:

Sentinel is the primary air defense radar for the US Army and the Life Cycle Contractor Support (LCCS) contract provides support for the Sentinel radar. Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) is currently seeking a Field Service Representative (FSR) to support fourteen (14) Sentinel Radars in the National Capital Region (NCR) as part of the LCCS mission. The LCCS NCR FSR team is a 2 FSR team who support the Joint Air Defense Operational Center (JADOC) stationed AN/MPQ-64A3 Sentinel radars. As part of the JADOC mission, several Sentinel are identified as Elevated Sentinel Radars (ESRs) and as such are installed on 300 foot raised platforms.

The FSR submits activity reports to their supervisor and program management on a weekly basis. The FSR is considered the technical expert on Sentinel and must be able to answer all technical questions regarding the operation and maintenance of the system. The FSR will provide guidance to the US Army Sentinel Radar System Maintainer MOS94M, as necessary, to complete intermediate and depot level maintenance, fault isolation, alignment, calibration and repair verification that is beyond their authorized capability.
