Job Description

Description

As Optical Payload Subsystem Engineer, provide payload engineering and technical assistance within a Government Program Office.  Apply engineering knowledge to support the design, manufacturing, and testing of advanced optical payload components, assemblies, and subsystems.  Initial responsibilities will focus on advanced focal plane and payload design across a broad spectrum of optical remote sensing phenomenologies.  Duties may adjust as the payload and spacecraft progress through design, development, integration, and test towards launch.

Key duties/responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Work in an interactive team environment with Government customer leads, payload developers, and other subject matter experts.

  • Apply engineering knowledge to support the design, development, manufacturing, and testing of advanced optical payload components, assemblies, and subsystems.

  • Assist in requirements development, and support requirements flow-down and traceability.  Assist with ensuring compliance to interfaces and standards, or ensure appropriate deviations/waivers are in place.

  • Evaluate system, subsystem and unit level design, as necessary, to determine if the design is adequate to meet program requirements and cost effective.

  • Assess subsystem technical performance within cost and schedule constraints.  Identify risks to program plans and schedules, and support development of corrective action plans.

  • Participate in Failure Review Boards (FRBs) to troubleshoot and resolve anomalies and test failures.  Develop mitigation plans and identify impacts to subsystems and spacecraft performance.

  • Confirm requirements verification by evaluating unit, subsystem, and vehicle performance and environmental test data, analysis, and inspection results.

  • Assist in preparation of RFP documentation (SOWs, CDRLs, specifications, etc.) and conduct ECP technical evaluations.

  • Travel within the U.S. approximately once a month for approximately 4 days per trip.
