Description

This position offers an exciting and challenging opportunity to support NASA’s Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) program.  You will apply your knowledge and expertise of system safety requirements, processes, tools and products to develop mission level safety analyses of NASA human spaceflight missions.  You will be responsible for ensuring the integrated mission design and proposed operations comply with all applicable Safety and Mission Assurance (S&MA) requirements, and that all flight safety risks have been identified, characterized and mitigated to an acceptable level to support certification of flight readiness. Some travel to vendors, prime contractor sites, and/or vehicle processing centers may be required.  Specific tasks include:

  • Evaluation of integrated system architecture and concept of operations for compliance to NASA Safety and Mission Assurance requirements
  • Development of integrated, mission level hazard and crew survival analysis including development of hazard cause trees, identification of potential integrated hazards, hazard causes, hazard controls and verifications
  • Development of mission level crew survival analysis to identify specific system capabilities and contingency operations which could be used to mitigate loss of crew risk in the event of a catastrophic hazard
  • Evaluation of changes to requirements, system designs and planned operations for potential impacts to flight safety and mission success
  • Evaluation of prime contractor processes and products including hazard analysis, failure modes and effects analysis, design verification analysis, reliability and maintainability analysis, limited life item time/cycle tracking reports, hardware qualification and acceptance test reports
  • Identify, characterize and provide recommendations regarding mitigation of safety and mission assurance risks to senior management
  • Participate in mission level trade studies to identify and quantify S&MA impacts associated with proposed options / alternatives under consideration
