M1 Control System Technical Project Manager Summary
The M1 Control System Technical Project Manager (M1CS-TPM) will be a key member of the project team that is responsible for the successful delivery of this challenging project. We are looking for individuals who are self-motivated team players and excited by the opportunity to work on a highly visible, world class, international project that will significantly advance our understanding of the universe. The successful candidate will have the vision, experience, and dedication to insure the successful delivery of the M1CS and will be proactive and innovative in his/her approach to meeting project goals within the constraints of schedule and budget.
The M1 Control System (M1CS) will control, with nano-meter precision, the position of the 492 hexagonal mirror segments of the company so as to form the equivalent of a 30 meter diameter monolithic mirror. Each segment is controlled via three precision actuators and two precision sensors per intersegment edge. In total the M1CS consists of 1476 actuators, 2772 sensors, thousands of electronic and cable assemblies, and real time control software.
The M1CS-TPM will oversee and monitor the work packages for the design and integration of the Primary Mirror Control System (M1CS). The M1CS-TPM will work closely with the M1CS design teams, the Company Project Office staff, and their partners to develop a production-ready M1CS design and to ensure the successful delivery and integration of the M1CS at the telescope site. The successful M1CS-TPM candidate will have a working knowledge of precision control systems, experience of evolving engineering prototypes into production ready designs, and demonstrated ability to successfully lead and manage projects that are technically similar to the M1CS with budgets greater than $5M.
The primary work location for the M1CS-TPM will be the Company Project office in Pasadena, California. Some travel to our partner locations in India, Japan, and China may be necessary. Travel to the observatory site will be necessary during the integration and commissioning phase of the project.
