Geocent's Aerospace & Defense Engineering Sector offers exciting and challenging opportunities in the Space and Missile Defense Industry. Geocent employees across the country subscribe to the company's culture of focusing on results when serving our large, diverse group of clients nationwide.
Provide engineering support in the development, integration, test, and analysis of a simulated vehicle. The task will involve developing and integrating system and subsystem models coded in C++ which represent behavior of vehicle subsystem hardware (such as Booster, Liquid Engine, Main Propulsion System, Thrust Vector Control, Avionics, and\or Guidance, Navigation and Control) in order to test the vehicle’s mission and fault management algorithms. This will include developing C++ code to facilitate testing of the algorithms.
The selected candidate will also develop test procedures to perform nominal and off-nominal system test cases to verify the algorithm operation for pre-flight and in-flight scenarios. This will require interfacing with the Integrated Development Teams, vehicle elements, and other organizations to ensure the simulations adequately represent the vehicle performance.
The selected candidate will participate in recurring vehicle, discipline and sub-system meetings to gather technical data, distribute analysis results, work technical issues and collaborate with stakeholder organizations. They will also participate in discipline, project and program level reviews as necessary, to include but not limited to presenting results, issues, reviewing documents and working issues as they arise.
Degree in Aerospace, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering or related field from an ABET-accredited university is required. Typically, educational requirements are the equivalent of a minimum of a Masters with at least 3 years of experience, or BS with at least 5 years of experience.
Due to this government contract, all candidates must be a US Citizen.
