On the SMAEC II contract this individual will:  

  • Provide Safety and Mission Assurance (S&MA) support to the Quality and Flight Equipment Division (NT) at NASA’s Johnson Space Center for GFE projects developed by NASA for NASA programs. The current scope of GFE projects are in support of the International Space Station (ISS) Program, the EVA Office (XX) and EMU spacewalk activities, the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) Orion Program, test missions associated with MPCV, and potential advanced NASA projects associated with the future space exploration efforts.  
  • Assure overall design/safety requirements robustness, to assure adequacy of the overall safety assessment (Hazard Reports and FMEA/CILs), and to provide engineering expertise toward the certification efforts that qualify mission functionality.  
  • Additionally, will be expected to assist the project with anomaly resolution and to communicate any associated project risks up through the appropriate S&MA chain of command
  • Provide project support over the entire system lifecycle, including design, assembly, pre-mission planning, integration, launch, flight operations, and return.  
  • Contribute to design reviews as the subject matter expert for GFE safety to assure design/safety requirements definition and the selection of appropriate testing/verification methods.  
  • Use risk assessment tools (e.g., Hazard Analysis, FMEA/CILs, Fault Tree Analysis, Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA)) to identify hazards/causes, to ensure adequate controls are in place, and to eliminate/reduce risk as necessary to mitigate overall system effect.  
  • Formulate the S&MA response to system design and safety products, the GFE Safety Engineer integrates and coordinates inputs for all necessary NASA stakeholders (e.g., Engineering, Space and Life Sciences, Program Offices, Flight Operations, etc.) associated with the project and its lifecycle.  
  • Review Testing and Verification Plans to assess adequacy of control strategies and assures that compliance with qualification verifications and the GFE certification process has been met. 
  • Throughout the project’s lifecycle, the GFE Safety Engineer will provide presentations to S&MA, project, and program management as necessary regarding safety, risk summaries, and dissenting opinions. 
  • Provide support toward on-orbit anomaly investigation and resolution efforts. This may involve the provision of fault trees and historical failure data pertaining to the GFE project/system. 
  • Console operations experience is desired as the GFE Safety Engineer may be required to support real-time on-orbit events through EVA/ISS Safety consoles located in the ISS MER environment.  

Qualifications

Degree:

• Bachelor of Science in Engineering (e.g., Mechanical, Aerospace) or STEM (e.g., Math, Physics)

Required Skills:

 • 15+ years of experience supporting the design and development of NASA hardware projects
• Superb written and oral communications skills for frequent correspondence with project stakeholders and multiple layers of SAIC and NASA management
• Excellent people skills required along with demonstrated excellent professional behavior interfacing with customers and department management.
• Understanding of JSC processes and requirements for the design, engineering, production and test activities of Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) for utilization supporting human space flight for BOE development as well as the near real time operational support needs.
• Familiarity with the NASA JSC GFE flight hardware life cycle and certification process
• Detailed understanding of the purpose and operation of the various NASA review and approval boards and panels governing the acceptance of GFE hardware and software for human spaceflight application.
• Must be willing to travel (< 5%), including possible international travel. If requested for international travel, then must be able to obtain a personal passport as required.
• Must be a U.S. citizen
