Systems Engineer, Nuclear Hardness, Survivability

Description: This Systems Engineer will apply electrical, electronics and physics theories in executing various tasks related to Nuclear Hardness and Survivability (NH&S) engineering discipline. This engineering discipline ensures that military space vehicle and missile designs, from the component level to the system level, will meet performance requirements during and after exposure to specified environments. These environments may include natural space radiation and specified nuclear and directed energy weapon threats.

The breadth of responsibilities expected from the Systems Engineer includes technical planning, specification requirements derivation, modeling and analysis, design, test planning and execution, technical documentation, requirements verification/validation to support overall system hardness against radiation threats and act as technical consultant for management and customers.

The Systems Engineer will join the enterprise Survivability Engineering group, will be partnered with other experts, mentor and lead peers, and is expected to support multiple programs within the company with primary function focused on supporting military space programs in Sunnyvale, CA.

Skills include Electrical Engineer, Systems Engineer, Physics, Survivability Engineer, Nuclear Hardness and Survivabiliy Engineer, Radiation Engineer, nuclear, radiation, SPICE, MATLAB, NOVICE, test, electronics, semiconductor, electromechanical, electromagnetic, Shieldose, and/or Spenvis.
Desired Skills: - Radiation software tools (e.g., NOVICE, Srim/Trim, Novice/Geant4, Creme96, Creme-mc, Shieldose, Spenvis, Omere, Ap8/Ap8, and Ap9/Ae9)
- Radiation test facilities [e.g., test labs in University of California at Davis, Texas A&M, Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL)]
- Electronic, electrical, electromechanical and electro-optical (EEEE) components
- Piece-part radiation testing and radiation effects on piece-parts performance and reliability
- Electromagnetic environment and theories
- Work and interface with peers and senior experts from within and outside the engineering group
- Enthusiastic learner and willingness to be an apprentice to senior experts in the NH&S discipline
- Support anomaly resolution teams
