The Guidance, Navigation and Control Center (GNC) is responsible for all requirements, trade studies, algorithm designs and performance analyses required to develop RMS products that navigate and guide successfully. The Center's scope includes aerodynamic analysis, wind tunnel testing and model development: flight control system design and analysis; servo and control actuation system design and analysis; strap down and GPS aided navigation system design and analysis; target state estimation, midcourse and terminal guidance design optimization as well as system performance analysis.
Entry level position starting in 2019 conducting missile guidance, navigation, air vehicle, control system, embedded software and missile performance analysis. Missile guidance tasks include guidance law development, state estimation, sensor fusion, trajectory shaping and miss distance performance optimization. Air vehicle design tasks include aerodynamics/stability & control, kinematic and propulsion system trade studies including computational fluid dynamics analysis, wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic model development. Navigation tasks include system trade studies, component modeling of inertial measurement units (IMU) and global positioning systems (GPS), as well as simulation of navigation algorithms particularly Kalman filters. Control system tasks include autopilot, control actuation system, mechanism and gimbaled seeker servo design. Embedded software includes real-time GNC algorithm development for missile system products. Missile performance analysis includes model development, system optimization and Monte Carlo assessments with expected system disturbances.
U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.
Strong academic and analytical background with course work including a combination of digital and modern control systems, dynamics, Kalman filter design, aerodynamics, CFD analysis or signal processing. Computer skills include Matlab, C, C++, Object Oriented design, familiarity with UNIX and LINUX operating systems as well as Microsoft products. U.S. Citizenship is required.
Class projects, professional internships, or academic research demonstrating the ability to apply technical course work or computer skills. Effective communication and organization skills.
Required Education (including Major):
Bachelor of Science degree from an ABET accredited institution in one of the following: Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or Systems Engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the US, foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement. Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens. Interested job seekers must apply online at to determine if they meet qualifications for specific positions and other employment requirements.
