Description

Job Description:

  • SAIC is seeking a Signal Engineer in Las Cruces, NM.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Provide subject matter expertise to Government lab leadership on emerging initiatives and technologies related to satellite systems capabilities, data processing, and technical sensing phenomenology.
  • Provide local assistance as directed to address local operational needs.
  • Advise government lab and enterprise leadership on efficacy of planned lab initiatives and risk reduction efforts related to spacecraft and ground processing, with a special emphasis on sensing Low Earth Orbit (LEO) spacecraft mission.
  • Provide expertise and experimental advisory support on space systems capabilities for unusual anomalies.
  • As Subject Matter Expert (SME) on space mission activities and system, identify new methods to operate current and future space missions new innovative methods and in safe modes.
  • This includes initiatives of all types of payloads to include communication applications.
  • Advise government lab leadership on operational efficiencies, including innovative allocation of limited resources (personnel, power, space, cooling) to be most effective.
  • Advise on and support highly technical experiments generated by internal and external teams to test adapting spacecraft platforms into new and evolving missions.
  • In an advisory manner, support proof- of-concepts, transitions of prototypes to operational use, and innovative processing techniques.
  • Evaluate the value of planned experiments and initiatives that plan use of on- orbit space assets.
  • Represent Government lab leadership in evaluating site architecture and capability changes from impact assessment, and leveraging emerging lab capabilities into innovative concepts.
  • Perform systems engineering to evolve the current enterprise lab architecture to better align with planned operational environments, to facilitate rapid and less costly transitions of mature lab experiments and initiatives.
  • Provide program management experience against current capabilities evaluating schedules, milestones, while balancing local and enterprise efforts for the organization.
