Job Description US CITIZENSHIP REQUIRED Design electrical subsystems of the future. Located in beautiful Westminster and Boulder, Colorado, we design electrical subsystems for challenging space, air, and ground applications. We are looking for a technical leader with expertise in electrical subsystem technologies who can design electrical solutions for a wide variety of remote sensing and controls related applications. As Albert Einstein said, "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." The Engineering, Science and Analysis (ESA) Strategic Capabilities Unit comprises the technical talent and organizational leadership that enables the successful delivery of high-impact discriminating technologies for our customers' missions. Our collaborative, cross-functional teams are committed to innovation, integrity, continual learning and strong execution. What You'll Do:
Assess spacecraft electrical system technology and architecture definition.
Perform electrical system conceptual development, trade studies and electrical subsystem level requirements flow-down (analysis and allocation).
Provide technical oversight of subsystem designs to ensure the spacecraft electrical system is compliant and verifiable at the spacecraft bus level.
Subsystems include power management, command & data handling, attitude determination and control, RF Telecom and electrical harnessing.
Evaluate new internal electrical technology development and upgrades for the bus electrical system architecture and implement design solutions for maximum SWaP value.
Interface with Systems Engineering, Integration and Test, and other engineering disciplines in leading the development of electrical concepts, trade studies, architectures, concepts for operations and plans for verification/validation.
Provide guidance in defining and implementing the test and verification methodologies.
Lead resolution of hardware anomalies at the system level and determine root cause and corrective action.
Evaluate size, weight, and power trades.
