Engineering Profile

Srinivasiengar Govind, Senior Program Manager, SAS

As a senior program manager with the Special Programs group of Advanced Concepts & Technology, part of Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, Dr. Srinivasiengar Govind is involved in the development of specialized low-band and broadband antennas. This includes work on the advancement of structurally embedded antennas. During his career, Govind has conducted studies on broadband multi-function antennas, radomes and radar cross-section studies. He has also worked on multi-beam antennas for satellites and electromagnetic pulse interaction effects studies for aircraft and missiles.

With 35 years of work experience, including 12 years with Raytheon, his early research in applying electromagnetics to antenna and scattering applications led him to his current career path. What excites him about his job is, “the constant learning I get by interfacing with the team members of many projects. I am not afraid to ask a fresh graduate to teach me things that I may not necessarily know, as well as share with them the application side to which I have been exposed over the years.”

Govind understands the importance of maintaining a good rapport with his customers. He understands that keeping the customer abreast of all new developments on a program can lead to future research and development. “I was very fortunate to be involved in the development of specialized aircraft during my earlier days with a previous employer, at a time when major development of the special technology was ongoing,” Govind relates. “I was also very fortunate to have a supportive manager who believed in the importance of applied research to meet customers’ needs.”
