Job Description

Description

SAIC is seeking an Electrical Harness Engineer on the OMES II contract in support of the Restore-L program in the Satellite Servicing Projects Division (SSPD) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This position is located in Greenbelt, MD.

The Restore-L mission is a Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Satellite Servicing Project Division (SSPD) managed mission. Restore-L is a robotic servicing mission designed to refuel a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite. It contains 3 elements: the Flight Element comprised of the Restore-L Servicing Vehicle (RSV) and development testbeds, the Ground Element comprised of the systems required to conduct RSV operations and the supporting networks and facilities, and the Launch Element comprised of the Launch Vehicle and supporting facilities and services. The SSPD is responsible for the design, engineering, development, test and operations of the Restore-L Mission through an integrated team at GSFC. The Servicing Payload design, development and RSV integration will be conducted at GSFC.


JOB DESCRIPTION:
The engineer will support harness design and integration across all testbeds and electrical ground support equipment (EGSE) as a member of the Restore-L I&T team. The Restore-L I&T subsystem performs the integration and test of all Restore-L hardware including the servicing payload and spacecraft bus.

Job duties include:
• Contribute to the electrical design, test, and integration of cabling/harnessing for ground support hardware within subsystems and at the mission system level
• Responsible for developing, designing, documenting, releasing, and testing of harness/cable designs for electrical ground support requirements within the program’s schedule, budget, and technical requirements
• Work with subsystem leads and responsible engineers to identify harnessing requirements on the various subsystems and make recommendations for harnessing needs within the subsystems and at the mission system level
• Manage conceptual design, trade studies, drawing generation, documentation release, and testing requirements.
• Responsible for hardware through the full product life cycle (design, fabrication, debug, integration, test and maintenance support)
• Interpret detailed component performance specification and Interface Control Drawings (ICD), including assembly manufacturing drawings, parts lists, cable design, and engineering change support
• Develop parts lists (connector selection, wire gauge sizing, harness assembly drawings, etc.)
• Incorporate engineering change notices and feedback into the iterative processes for design changes
• Coordinate manufacturing of harnesses with onsite fabrication resources and offsite vendors

Qualifications

REQUIRED EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:
• Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, or closely related field with 9+ years of related experience
• Must be able to pass a Government background investigation
• OrCAD, AutoCAD, PSpice, Labview, and Visio software experience
• Ability to assess design requirements to generate a design and documentation using standard industry tools/programs
• Must have experience working with program requirements, equipment performance specs, wire connection lists, schematics, wire gauge sizing, connector selection and related cabling , harnessing documentation, and grounding schemes
• Knowledge of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) considerations with respect to electrical design
• Strong proficiency in resolving technical and schedule issues in order to ensure that deliverables are met on schedule
• Proficiency in advising management, inside and outside own organization, on system architecture, technical results, or risks
• Strong problem-solving skills
• Ability to work as a team member
