Job Description

Description

SAIC is seeking a Satellite Communications Engineer on the OMES II contract in support of the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) program at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  Potential candidates will serve as the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Flight Operations RF Communications Subsystem Engineer.  The position is located in Greenbelt, MD.



The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) next-generation operational Earth observation program that acquires and distributes global environmental data primarily from multiple polar-orbiting satellites. The program plays a critical role to NOAA’s mission to understand and predict changes in weather, climate, oceans and coasts, and the space environment, which support the Nation’s economy and protect lives and property.


JOB DESCRIPTION:

  • Support the Mission Operations Support Team (MOST) in development of ground/spacecraft pre-launch processes and procedures. 
  • Interact with the government spacecraft subject matter experts (SME) as well as vendor SMEs to understand the RF Comm and Command and Data Handling (C&DH) spacecraft subsystems. Interact with MOST Spacecraft/Instrument Systems Engineers to understand the overall mission purpose. 
  • Develop and test command procedures, telemetry pages, and other products derived from vendor provided documentation that will be used to operate the RF Comm and Command and Data Handling (C&DH) subsystems. 
  • Develop test procedures and test execution for system level, end-to-end tests with the spacecraft. 
  • Support mission readiness activities including mission rehearsals, mission timeline development, and post launch test development. 
  • Support launch, including shift work, for instrument and spacecraft LEO&A activities. Identify and trouble shoot problems with the RF Comm and C&DH subsystems as well as all spacecraft subsystems as anomaly resolution teams require.

Qualifications

REQUIRED EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE: 
  • Bachelors Degree and 5 years related experience.
  • Must be able to support 24/7 in 12 hour shifts during Operational exercises and Launch and Early Orbit.
  • Satellite operations experience 
  • MS office skills
Desired:
  • Previous experience/proficiency with tools/languages such as STK, MATLAB, ECLIPSE, CECIL, and Perl 
  • Experience with prelaunch campaigns and launch and early orbit operations
