Northrop Grumman in Azusa, CA needs qualified Principal system engineers level 3, to fill Line-of-Sight (LOS) system performance analyst needs on the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) program. SBIRS has several Payloads on orbit and others scheduled to build, test, and launch over the next several years. LOS analysts will support pointing and control mechanism calibration and trending, ground and orbital system test data analysis, test design, anomaly resolution support, tool development, and requirements/performance capability sell-off for the SBIRS GEO and HEO payloads. Successful candidate will Performs technical planning, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, and supportability and effectiveness analyses for total systems. Analyses are performed at all levels of total system product to include: concept, design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal. Ensures the logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost constraints. Performs functional analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface definition studies to translate customer requirements into hardware and software specifications. Work may include payload and space vehicle integration and test, analyzing LOS calibration system performance for on-orbit SBIRS payloads as well as in support of SBIRS flight readiness test activities for payload and ground systems.
The Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) program delivers timely, reliable and accurate missile warning and infrared surveillance information to key decision makers. The system enhances global missile launch detection capability, supports the nation's ballistic missile defense system, expands the country's technical intelligence gathering capacity and bolsters situational awareness for warfighters on the battlefield. The SBIRS architecture includes a resilient mix of satellites in geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO), hosted payloads in HEO orbit, and ground hardware and software. The integrated system provides robust performance with global, persistent coverage.
