Job Description

Description

SAIC is seeking a Ground System Stored Mission Data Engineer for the OMES II contract in support of the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) program at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. 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.


This is a senior ground system engineering position with an emphasis on ground system engineering and test services during the continued implementation of upgrades to the Command, Control & Communications (C3S) segment of the ground system for the NPP and GCOM missions as well as implementation of the JPSS-1 and future mission capabilities. Specifically, the candidate will be working on the stored mission data (SMD) analysis of the JPSS missions. 

 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Basic systems engineering skills to be used on the Command Control and Communications Integrated Product Team (IPT)

    • Requirements development

    • Ground System Design

    • ConOps Development

    • Interface Design

  • Monitoring the current on orbit satellites assessing SMD completeness, latency and performance

  • Monitoring products from downlink through delivery to the data processing node

  • Evaluating the technical refreshes that affect SMD

  • Oversight of the vendor design, development, integration and test efforts specifically relating to SMD hardware and software

  • Support trade studies for the C3S team, in particular EUMETSAT efforts and GMSEC efforts

Qualifications

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE/EDUCATION:

  • Bachelors’ Degree and 18+ years’ experience.

  • Direct, relevant experience and familiarization with NASA/NOAA system architecture and organizational structures

  • Ground System Engineering experience

  • Experience in ground system development, installation and test

  • Writing Test Procedures 

Desired Qualifications
