Job Description

Provide electrical system architecture and electronics implementation experience, knowledge, and technical leadership for cutting-edge tactical electronics.

The Engineering, Science and Analysis (ESA) Strategic Capabilities Unit comprises the technical talent and organizational leadership that enables the successful delivery of high-impact discriminating technologies for our customers' missions. Our collaborative, cross-functional teams are committed to innovation, integrity, continual learning and strong execution.

What You'll Do:
  • Infuse new electrical technology where needed, make the electrical system work end-to-end, and make the mission successful.
  • Lead electrical technology assessments and electrical system level architecture trade studies, electrical system definition, and electrical subsystem level requirements flow-down (analysis and allocation).
  • Provide technical oversight of detailed designs to ensure the electrical system is compliant and verifiable at the payload and spacecraft level.
  • Technologies include focal planes, digital signal processing, high speed data transfer, low noise analog sensing, thermal control, mechanism control, low voltage power, power management and harnessing.
  • Instrument level grounding, EMI/EMC/ESD allocations and implementation, and electrical interface control definitions. Effectively operate within a multi-discipline systems engineering team.
  • An ability to talk with both internal and external customers.
  • Defining and implementing the test and verification program.
  • Lead the resolution of hardware anomalies and determine root cause and corrective action.
  • Contribute to proposal efforts for defense-based systems.
  • Maintain a regular and predictable work schedule.
  • Establish and maintain effective working relationships within the department, the Strategic Business Units, Strategic Capabilities Units and the Company.
  • Interact appropriately with others in order to maintain a positive and productive work environment.
  • Perform other duties as necessary.
On-Site Work Environment: This position requires regular in-person engagement by working on-site five days each normally scheduled week in the primary work location. Travel and local commute between company campuses and other possible non-company locations may be required.

Working Conditions:
  • Work is performed in an office, laboratory, production floor, or cleanroom, outdoors or remote research environment.
  • May occasionally work in production work centers where use of protective equipment and gear is required.
  • May access other facilities in various weather conditions.

Required Education, Experience, & Skills
  • BS degree or higher in Engineering or a related technical field is required plus 8 or more years related experience.
  • Each higher-level degree, i.e., Master's Degree or Ph.D., may substitute for two years of experience. Related technical experience may be considered in lieu of education. Degree must be from a university, college, or school which is accredited by an agency recognized by the US Secretary of Education, US Department of Education.
  • Experience as a technical team leader.
  • First-hand knowledge of electronics used for low voltage power generation and distribution, digital data processing, high speed serial data transmission, discrete command and telemetry, low noise analog signal processing, closed loop control electronics, and EMI/EMC/ESD compliance.
  • Knowledge of grounding architectures for low noise systems.
  • Knowledge of harnessing to meet voltage drop, power, EMI/EMC/ESD, and signal integrity requirements.
  • Experience developing single string and redundant electrical systems.
  • Experience in developing or guiding the creation of electrical system specifications, and electrical requirements analysis and allocation.
  • Detailed design experience with "space flight qualified" electronics.
  • Analytical experience: FMECA, WCA, reliability, EMI/EMC/ESD, voltage drop, and derating.
  • Ability to identify and mitigate technical risks.
  • Ability to evaluate and optimize size, weight, and power.
  • Exceptional communication skills, solid presentation skills, and the ability to effectively lead group discussions.
  • Expertise in high-speed digital system architectures, closed-loop control systems, and integration and test experience.
  • Embedded processor-based electronics architecture experience.

Preferred Education, Experience, & Skills
  • Experience with electro-optical systems preferred.
  • A current, active Secret security clearance preferred.
