Requisition ID: 25382 


Group 77—Rapid Prototyping
The Rapid Prototyping Group focuses on partnering with groups across the Laboratory to execute rapid prototyping efforts. The group works on diverse programs, delivering new advanced technology capabilities in timelines typically under a year. This group leads and coordinates various activities: mechanical system design and fabrication, electronics system design and fabrication, system engineering, integration into aircraft and other platforms, and laboratory and field testing. Projects are conducted in a team environment, utilizing resources from both the Engineering Division and mission area groups to successfully execute fast-paced development and demonstration efforts.

The Rapid Prototyping Group seeks an engineer with experience in the design, fabrication, and integration of advanced sensor systems.  The engineer will work on a variety of short duration (6-18 month) projects while interfacing directly with subject-matter-experts from across the Laboratory to design and implement state-of-the-art sensor systems.  Experience in the mechanical design and fabrication for complex imaging systems, thermal systems and mechanisms, especially for a variety of platforms (vehicles, aircraft, ships, spacecrafts, etc.) are highly desirable.

Must be able to work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary team environment and demonstrate good written and oral communication skills. 


- Strong team player
- Experience with mechanical CAD modeling tools such as Creo and Solidworks
- Experience with electronics hardware and software highly desired (FPGA programming, C++ software development, PC board and cable design/fabrication)

- Work history that includes hands-on systems integration and strong desire to build things
- Experience with the design of sensor systems for defense applications (radars, EO/IR, RF)
- Experience with the various fabrication techniques like machining, sheet metal, etc.
- Experience with the design, analysis and documentation of electro-mechanical subsystems and components.
- Familiarity with thermal analysis and structural analysis.

PhD in Engineering or MS in Engineering with 3+ years of work experience in related areas

Must be able to obtain and maintain a security clearance
