Satellite Systems Engineer- Transport Segment
ASRC Federal Space and Defense is seeking an Satellite Systems Engineer for our team in Chantilly, VA. Overview: The successful candidate will provide Mission Systems Engineering & Integration (MSE&I) support for a government customer in the areas of space systems Tracking, Transport and Ground segments. Duties The successful candidate will support a new program focused on Mission integration of a new Space Domain architecture. This role is focused on Mission integration of the Tracking segment. Tasks include assessing the capabilities planned for the Tracking (Wide Field of View OPIR) Satellite Vehicles and supporting the Lead Systems Engineer (LSE) to develop and implement a plan to ensure that the combined system will be able to support the mission capabilities. Mission operations (demo and other flight test planning) has a direct interface with the Warfighter and brings together Wide Field of View OPIR satellites with a new satellite communication network utilizing optical links and mesh networking capability and a new ground architecture to deliver low-latency, high bandwidth data to DoD elements already conducting critical warfighter missions. This mission integration tracking systems engineer will be a senior member Tracking team that supports the LSE to develop and mature requirements for a "Capstone" demonstration. This is a fast paced program that will deliver a capability to support the warfighter in under 18 months and lay the ground work for the follow-on tracking system development. A focus of this role is working with more than one SV vendor to identify gaps in the architecture and interfaces and refine the CONOPS based upon expected Segment capabilities and mentoring junior members of the team. Support the Capstone detailed design, analysis, planning, and integration activities Develop a detailed Mission Operations integration plan in coordination with stakeholders Work with the stakeholders (Segments, Users, Partners) to define operational details, lower-level use cases (mission elements or components), requirements, interfaces, and controlling documents Evaluate the demonstrations, simulations, and testing required to demonstrate mission capability and document the interfaces, internal and external operations and resources required to successfully accomplish them. Support the development of planning documents, memorandums of agreement or understanding, and any other documentation required. Using a holistic approach, designs, develops, evaluates and modifies end-to-end systems and systems-oriented products through their entire life cycle. Generates quantifiable requirements based on customer description, system planning and design, and acquisition logistics. Ensures requirements comply with client requirements and government standards through formal verification methods. Translates high level product development strategies into system requirement specifications and works with other engineering disciplines to develop lower level detailed implementation requirements. Establishes and coordinates development of standards, practices, and procedures as related to the overall product development. Designs interfaces and brings system elements together, so they work as a whole. Assesses performance using evaluation criteria and technical performance measures. Translates high level product development strategies into system requirement specifications and works with multi-discipline engineering teams to develop lower level detailed requirements. Participates in design reviews of components (hardware and software) to ensure applicability to the current system and traceability of requirements through compliance verification and validation. Generates system level requirements verification procedures and customer acceptance test procedures. Reviews test plans/procedures and ensures they meet the objectives of the contractual requirements and participates in the testing process to validate requirements.
