Job Description

Description

Make a difference for national security by joining a team of dedicated professionals in El Segundo, CA who assist the US Space Force in developing and deploying the next generation of satellites and ground systems for missile warning (MW) and environmental monitoring (EM) capabilities.  These systems alert senior military officials when missile launches occur around the globe, as well as enable global naval vessel and troop movements by providing mission-critical weather data to ensure mission success.

Our Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) team has an immediate need for a Systems Engineer to lead the space to ground integration effort for the next generation of Space Force Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) satellites.  Candidate will be an expert on the space to ground interface requirements including both the SV and ground processing side of the Interface Control Document (ICD).   Candidate will have familiarity with a suite of systems engineering tools to support interface development, requirements traceability, configuration management, architecture analysis, configuration management and engineering reviews using Agile practices in a Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) environment. Candidate should have experience with various phases of the systems engineering lifecycle that include architecture, operational concepts, requirements and interface development activities for space and ground systems. 

Major duties of the position include:

  • Evaluating current space and ground systems and integrity of draft space to ground ICD
  • Evaluating changes to Command and Control technical requirements documents for both SV and Mission Payloads
  • Evaluating interface impacts from changes to secondary payloads
  • Using MBSE tools (i.e. Sparx EA, Cameo) to input and generate ICD updates for change assessment and board processing.
  • Evaluating and refining technical requirements to accurately state interface capabilities.
  • Supporting Modeling & Simulation activities, performing trade analysis and presenting recommendations.
  • Collaborating with prime contractors, other team contractors, government civilians, and members of the U.S. Space Force.
  • Evaluating and refining DoDAF views to accurately incorporate interface definitions.
  • Evaluating and refining CONOPS/OPSCONs to ensure alignment with interface requirements.
  • Conducting formal reviews of interface documents and incorporating feedback.
  • Controlling, baselining and managing interfaces in accordance with CM/DM Processes.
  • Using DI2E to implement Agile practices and participate in Agile development activities.
