SAIC is seeking a GUI Software Engineer on the OMES II contract in support of the Restore-L program in NASA's Exploration and In-Space Services Projects Division (formerly Satellite Servicing Projects Division) at Goddard Space Flight Center. This position is located in Greenbelt, MD.
The Restore-L mission is a Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Exploration and In-Space Services Projects Division (NExIS) managed mission. Restore-L is a robotic servicing mission designed to refuel a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite. It contains 3 elements: the Flight Element comprised of the Restore-L Servicing Vehicle (RSV) and development testbeds, the Ground Element comprised of the systems required to conduct RSV operations and the supporting networks and facilities, and the Launch Element comprised of the Launch Vehicle and supporting facilities and services. NExIS is responsible for the design, engineering, development, test and operations of the Restore-L Mission through an integrated team at GSFC. The Servicing Payload design, development and RSV integration will be conducted at GSFC.
The GUI Software Engineer will maintain and continue development of graphical user interfaces and visualization tools for robot systems. As a GUI software engineer, the candidate will support the Restore-L mission by developing the control system used to command and control the robot payload.
Job Duties include:
- Design and implement next generation Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to command and control robot systems that are located on the ground and on spaceflight vehicles.
- Design, develop, code, test and debug software.
- Work with other engineers and scientists to design, develop, integrate and test related systems and software components.
- Create and deliver technical presentations to support the design and development of robot systems, including requirement and design reviews.
