Job Description

Description

Provide Systems Engineering and Technical Analysis (SETA) support in the design, development, manufacture, testing, integration, launch, and operation of multiple advanced spaceborne electro-optical payloads, with emphasis on electronics design, analysis, and testing of components, assemblies, and subsystems.   

Key duties/responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Work in an interactive team environment with Government customer leads, payload developers, and other subject matter experts.
  • Apply engineering knowledge to support the design, development, manufacturing, and testing of advanced optical payload components, assemblies, and subsystems.
  • Assist in requirements development, and support requirements flow-down and traceability.  Assist with ensuring compliance to interfaces and standards, or ensure appropriate deviations/waivers are in place.
  • Evaluate system, subsystem and unit level design, as necessary, to determine if the design is adequate to meet program requirements and is cost effective.
  • Assess subsystem technical performance within cost and schedule constraints.  Identify risks to program plans and schedules, and support development of corrective action plans.
  • Participate in Failure Review Boards (FRBs) to troubleshoot and resolve anomalies and test failures.  Develop mitigation plans and identify impacts to subsystem, spacecraft, and mission performance.
  • Confirm requirements verification by evaluating unit, subsystem, and vehicle performance and environmental test data, analysis, and inspection results.
  • Assist in preparation of RFP documentation (SOWs, CDRLs, specifications, etc.) and conduct ECP technical evaluations.
  • When COVID restrictions ease, travel within the U.S. approximately one to two times per month for approximately 2-4 days per trip.
