Engineering Profile

Jeff Shubrooks
Engineering Fellow

With more than 26 years of experience at Raytheon Company, Jeff Shubrooks is a mechanical engineering fellow focusing on manufacturing capabilities development within the Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business. As transition-to-build (TTB) lead, his primary goal is to create links between customer product needs and manufacturing capabilities while maintaining high manufacturing readiness levels (MRLs) that enable rapid response affordable solutions. Shubrooks also leads the IDS Additive Manufacturing Council and is co-lead for the AM Core Research Enterprise Campaign.

Shubrooks strongly believes that “without manufacturing and product technology advancement, we cannot remain competitive. Both are key to Raytheon’s success.”

Shubrooks recently completed his rotation as the Corporate Manufacturing Technical Area Director (TAD) where he was responsible for coordinating Raytheon’s manufacturing technology development and strategy. In this role, he served as primary liaison between Corporate Technology and Research and the Raytheon technical manufacturing community. Previously, Shubrooks was manager for Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) New Product Introduction Engineering where he coordinated the introduction of new programs and technologies into the Raytheon CCA Center of Excellence (COE).

“Working in the CCA COE enabled me to build relationships across Raytheon,” Shubrooks states. “The day-to-day competition with outside suppliers really emphasized the importance of being affordable while bringing value. In my TAD role I was able to see the full technical diversity of Raytheon and how manufacturing could be better tied to Raytheon’s technical needs.”

Shubrooks began his career with Raytheon Company as a manufacturing engineer for surface mount and printed circuit assembly. In this position, he helped institute surface mount technology into a production facility, realizing significant savings from a new automated soldering process.
