Space Systems creates capability that supports their overall mission: "We protect those who protect us."

The Radiation Assurance Test Engineer position requires using knowledge in radiation effects, interactions in electronics devices and materials. This position requires developing and debugging complex test designs, performing radiation tests on complex devices, analyzing the test data to assess compliance to specifications and requirements, and submitting timely test reports. Test environments include TID, LDR, SEE, Prompt Dose, and DDD.

For internal or third party test projects, the position will require skills to support bid and proposal efforts, develop statements of work, test plans, manage costs, schedules, test performance, and analysis. The Radiation Assurance Test Engineer uses the system radiation requirements, and the part specifications, to prepare a Radiation Hardness Assurance Plan. The highly engaged engineer will support or lead a cross discipline team of design and system engineers, while providing radiation test and analysis results, advice on requirements flow down, modeling and analysis reports, and recommendations for mitigating radiation effects. The Radiation Assurance Test Engineer supports or leads the Parts, Materials, and Process Control Board to assure radiation requirements are met, and works directly with the board, supply chain, Design and Quality Engineering, to achieve a balance of cost, schedule, and performance objectives with respect to radiation requirements and risk. The engineer exhibits sound interpersonal skills involving interfacing, coordinating and negotiating with company personnel, customers and suppliers.
