The Systems Integration Engineers must operate comfortably with all engineering disciplines including software engineers, designers, and production personnel. Interface with suppliers of modules and critical hardware vendors is an important associated activity.
Performs complex systems development and design work that may include logic design, I/O design, firmware development, model formulation, manufacturing and development cost projections, computer architecture analysis and design, and analog or digital systems engineering.
A Systems Engineer performing the System Analyses function seeks to strongly influence the inherent system performance capabilities and feature sets of an objective system through definition of design challenges and risks, compliant architectural design, performance analyses of critical requirements, performance/cost trade studies, and participation in the requirements flow down process.
Candidate skill set must include a solid electrical engineering background in circuit design, analysis, troubleshooting, test instrumentation interface, strong electrical and electro - mechanical test equipment hardware design, and electro - optical interface.
The design verification process is performed to a well- constructed Integration and Test plan derived from requirements generated in DOORS and associated which validates built-in system performance from the lowest level modules to the final assembled system.
These modeling and simulation tasks run the gamut from hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL), 6 DOF Integrated Flight simulations (IFS), system survivability, Safety of Flight (SOF), and end-to-end battle management systems (BMS)
Defines and decomposes system requirements and functional system requirements; documents specifications; identifies requirements flow down, design and architecture development, and requirements traceability.
Conduct safety check lists and inspections; support design and test readiness reviews and safety working group meetings; preparation of data packages and briefing material for Customer System Safety Review Boards.
