Integration and Test Engineer

Group 99—Integrated Systems and Concepts
The Integrated Systems and Concepts Group specializes in the rapid development and demonstration of innovative optical system solutions to address difficult challenges facing the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and other U.S. government entities. The group maintains broad expertise in electro-optical and infrared sensors, charge-coupled devices, focal plane arrays, ground/air/space electronics, image processing, video exploitation, and low–size/weight/power optical communications systems. The group leverages this core expertise to architect, prototype, build, and deploy hardware and software systems in support of mission needs. Emphasis is on working closely with end users to develop enabling concepts and then building and fielding integrated systems on responsive timelines. The group seeks self-motivated engineers and scientists with multidisciplinary skill sets and a passion for conceptualizing, designing, and building systems that address critical national needs.

The Integrated Systems and Concepts Group has a growing expertise and involvement in small satellites, particularly at the microsatellite scale, in support of the Space Control mission and other Division 9 application areas.  Group 99 is currently involved in the development of small satellite systems, with many of our staff developing the electronics, software, control system, cameras, and propulsion.  These areas of expertise are leveraged to support the development of next-generation Small Satellite concepts and programs. 

The Integrated Systems and Concepts Group has an opening for an Integration and Test Engineer in the area of Small Satellite Integration and Test.  The ideal candidate will have a Master’s Degree or a Bachelor’s Degree with 3-5 years of experience in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Electrical Engineering.  The candidate would join a small team of developers and engineers responsible for the successful integration of the hardware and software that comprises the satellite components, subsystems, and the full system.  Familiarity with typical spacecraft components, such as star trackers, reaction wheels, magnetorquers, and GPS is highly desired.  Expertise in power systems, including solar panels and Lithium Ion batteries and Peak Power Trackers would also be highly beneficial.  Knowledge of feedback control algorithms and attitude representation would also be highly applicable. 

Master’s degree (or BS with 3-5 years of experience) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or similar technical field.  Must have experience in laboratory testing, electronics, and software.
