Position Type:Direct Placement
Start Date: 08/01/2018
Responsibilities:
  • We are looking for a detail oriented Mechanical Engineer with a strong analytical background who enjoys the challenge of designing, analyzing, and integrally supporting the manufacturing of cutting edge space products. In the role of the Mechanical Systems Analyst, you will support various engineering activities from the architecture and requirements development phase of a program, analysis and requirements verification, all the way to the integration Harris' hardware to the Buyer spacecraft. If this is a position for you, come join our team!
  • Responsible for ensuring that precision reflectors are correctly shaped on orbit under all operating conditions. Regular activities include predicting thermal distortions on orbit, backing out gravity effects during assembly, and deriving nominal geometry and loads for production.
  • Responsible for overseeing manufacturing of the reflectors including adjusting the mechanical assembly to optimize mechanical accuracy and alignment during production.
  • Verify that all sub-assemblies are meeting their performance requirements to achieve overall reflector performance within system level budget allocations.
  • Perform analysis tasks on precision mechanisms and large deployable structures in a program team environment.
  • Program support includes requirements derivation and verification, system architecture development, loads derivation, trade studies, design sensitivity/optimization studies, preliminary and final design analysis, generation of analysis documentation (including presentation materials, and deliverable data packages), and leading system integration / test activities.
