Engineering Profile

Mark Hebeisen
Technical Director, IDS

With more than two decades of experience in technology innovation, market strategy formulation, and general management of companies spanning wireless, defense and homeland security markets, Mark Hebeisen is the Technical Director for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), serving on the Engineering, Technology and Mission Assurance leadership team. Additionally, Hebeisen is director of Strategic Architecture for IDS where he leads a team of chief engineers, technical directors and industry-recognized subject matter experts to define the independent research and development strategy for IDS and to ensure that flawless execution and affordability are driven into ongoing engineering programs.

Hebeisen has a strong background in the commercial electronics industry, specializing in high-data-rate communications systems. He was co-founder and technical director of a successful wireless communications company. He went on to help pioneer an offshore manufacturing model for high-frequency products to achieve high-volume production of millimeter-wave modules in Asia, and he transformed a wireless telecommunications product line into a diverse portfolio of high-frequency subsystems.

When asked what career advice he would offer a Raytheon engineer, Hebeisen's response was, "Tap into the power of Raytheon in everything you do. The talent I am surrounded with at Raytheon is incredible. I try to lean on that expertise by increasing my internal Raytheon network well beyond IDS and into all of Raytheon — to help solve the toughest challenges in front of us."

Hebeisen earned both a bachelor's and master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is a graduate of Stanford University's AeA Executive Institute for Management of High Tech Companies.
