is seeking a senior robot software 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.
