Job Description

Description

SAIC Summer Internships begin June, 2022 and are 10-week, paid, full time positions in El Segundo, CA

SAIC is transforming complex system design processes through digital engineering. Integrating design artifacts, analytics and advanced visualization, we can speed the use of applications, accelerate design decisions, and unlock the power of advanced analytics to create the future of space system designs. 

We are seeking FORWARD THINKERS for our summer Internship Program to help define, visualize and communicate the value of new space systems and technologies through digital engineering.

As a leader in the emerging discipline of Model Based Systems Engineering, SAIC seeks to develop methods of presentation that are highly virtualized, visual and provides an interactive experience to the “audience”.   These goals will be achieved by combining the methods of computer gaming with high-fidelity engineering. The collaborative team of interns will include game developers, computer scientists, and engineers or scientists.  Interns will work with and learn from SAIC engineers and their peers in other disciplines.

At the end of the summer program, the interns will produce a visual demonstration of analysis relevant to the Space Force. This will be presented to senior Space Force officers and senior SAIC management

The SAIC team is committed to making the internship a rewarding experience for all.

 

Job Description:

Interns will support a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary effort under a contract supporting the U.S. Space Force. This contract is identifying future capabilities that the United States will require to maintain the safety and security of its national space capabilities.

 

What will you do?

Support US Space Force missions and take part in projects utilizing the technologies driving digital transformation including Multi-security level data fusion, Cloud Migration, Software Integration, Big  Data Science, Big Data Analytics, Digital Engineering, Model-Based Systems Engineering and 3D Visualization using latest gaming  engine and virtual and augmented reality

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop models spanning many areas of relevance, including communications, remote sensing, orbit dynamics, satellite design, and artificial intelligence.
  • Perform space systems engineering tasks related to space system modeling, conducting mission scenario studies and performance trade analysis.
  • Evaluate commercial spacecraft simulation applications for suitability for analyzing various space superiority scenarios.
  • Support development of graphical user interfaces for interactive presentation of simulated scenarios.
  • Develop the concept of operations, perform simulations and report results of how well simulation outcomes support mission objectives.

What will you learn:

Interns will gain familiarity with national space missions, satellite and mission analysis and the environment in which such satellites operate while gaining exciting, real-world experience with space system applications, space superiority mission design and model based systems engineering
