Job Description

Description

SAIC is seeking a Senior Mechanical Systems Engineer on the OMES II contract at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in support of the Mission Control System segment of the Ground System for Restore-L. The 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.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

The engineer will provide mechanical systems engineering support for the Restore-L Tools subsystem. The Restore-L Tools subsystem is responsible for the design, fabrication, assembly, and test of the suite of tools required to perform the on-orbit servicing of Landsat 7.

 

Job duties include:

  • Cross-purpose mechanical systems engineering support for a spaceflight mission through integration and test, launch, and operations of the hardware

  • Proactively identifying and solving technical problems during all project life phases
  • Requirements definition, verification, and management
  • System analysis with emphasis on mission success, risk, safety and security
  • Development of technical documentation including test procedures, test and status reports, procurement specifications, Concepts of Operations (CONOPS), and Interface Control Documents (ICDs)
  • Use of engineering methodologies and techniques to perform technical trades
  • Development, coordination and presentation of NASA review and Key Decision Point presentations (e.g. CDR, SRR, ORR, trade study presentations, monthly reviews, etc.)
  • Ensure that the quality, accuracy, and integrity of your technical documentation, reports, and deliverables comply with NASA and Restore-L standards, project plans, and policies

Qualifications

REQUIRED EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:

  • Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, or closely related field with 9+ years of related experience
  • Must be able to pass a Government background investigation
  • Experienced at authoring and maintaining project documentation
  • 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
  • Practical experience using advanced principles, theories, concepts, and techniques in solving mechanical engineering problems, with the ability to perform trade studies, develop conceptual configurations, engineer piece-parts and mechanical systems, and facilitate the fabrication, assembly, and qualification of MGSE and flight hardware
  • Expertise in mechanical engineering disciplines for the design, analysis and test of tools and mechanisms, including engineering mechanics (statics and dynamics), strength of materials, structural design, machine design, structural/mechanical testing, manufacturing engineering, mechanical systems, and machine shop practices
  • Firm grasp and understanding of ANSI drafting and tolerance standards
  • Understanding of advanced fabrication and manufacturing methods
  • Strong communication skills and ability to interface with engineers, analysts, designers, manufacturing specialists, machine shop, flight techs, and project staff

Desired Qualifications

 

DESIRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Knowledge of NASA mechanical/mechanism design criteria and standard practices
  • Knowledge of materials, treatments, and coatings related to space-flight design and operation of mechanisms 
  • An advanced working knowledge of space flight mechanisms with a focus on: actuators, motors, power transmission, bearing design, electro-mechanical mechanisms, and tribology
  • Experience with Configuration Management Systems (TDMS, Windchill, equivalent)
  • Knowledge of mechanical design as it relates to 1-G mechanism development, testing, and operations 
  • Demonstrated experience with space robotics, vision systems, end-effectors, and tools 
  • Environmental testing experience (thermal, vibration, shock) as it relates to verification and validation of ground and space-flight hardware 
  • Knowledge of General Environmental Verification Specification (GEVS) and NASA 5017
  • Working knowledge of materials, coatings, and related processes as it applies to space-flight hardware
  • Practical knowledge of Standards for Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)
