E1461:Systems Engineer Asc
Candidate will participate in the Systems Engineering Early Career program which is focused on development of key Systems Engineering skills applicable to the company’s product portfolio. Candidate will perform a variety of Systems Engineering tasks and assignments that will promote the development of their technical and strategic engineering, leadership and interpersonal skills in a structured framework within the engineering disciplines, such as Mechanical, Electrical, and Systems.
Candidates are required to work in a cross-functional team environment. Performing tasks and assignments emphasizing development of technical and strategic leadership and interpersonal skills in a structured framework within the engineering disciplines, such as mechanical, electrical, software, and systems. Must have good communication skills, work in a team environment and can solve cross-functional technical problems.
Tasks include the analysis of customer's initial requirements specifications and development of product specifications / techniques to satisfy customer requirements. Assists in the development of the system architecture and interfaces of the product, as well as performing trade studies and evaluations of designs and concepts. This includes the generation of systems engineering work products such as trade studies, system architecture, requirements analysis, requirements derivation, and requirements management using appropriate tools.
Tasks also include the generation and analysis of performance reports and process control procedures; investigation and analysis of relevant variables potentially affecting the product and processes. This includes system design, analysis of vehicle configuration, aerodynamic and vehicle performance characterization, guidance, navigation and control systems, target tracking systems, pointing and aiming systems, fire control systems, and trajectory analysis. Additional involvement may occur in developing and maintaining engineering models and simulations that provide the basis for engineering predictions of vehicle, system and subsystem performance.
Additional task involvement includes development of integration and test processes and performing integration of system components, as well as determination of verification methods, development of test documentation, test planning, and product test execution. Assignment may involve the development of integration and test plans and conducts in-house system and subsystem integration tasks, environmental test tasks, and ground/flight tests of the system to required levels to meet product requirements as well as generating and analyzing performance reports and process control procedures.
Must have good communication skills, be able to effectively work in a team environment, capable of solving complex problems, and be able to focus on the complete product and the full life cycle of the product. Interest in weapon system development or fire control development and a proven track record of leadership.
Proficiency in programming languages such as C and C++ is desired. Strong background in mathematics and proficiency in MATLAB or a related simulation tool is preferred. Course work or related experience in control theory and/or electro-optics, requirements development, system architecture and design, system analysis, radar pattern recognition, image processing, aerodynamics, guidance and navigation, modeling and simulation, integration and testing of hardware and/or software components is highly beneficial.
