The EO/IR Systems Department is seeking a systems engineer to perform integration, verification and validation tasks that require fundamental knowledge in sensor system applications for airborne or space environments. Duties include testing activities, generating test requirements, deriving test methodology from the requirement specifications and performing system hardware sell-offs. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of requirements development and verification, with the ability to assemble a test plan starting from the requirements verification matrix. A flexible work schedule is required during testing phases of a program. The individual must be a highly motivated self-starter with the ability to communicate with various engineering and support disciplines.

Required Skills:

  • Minimum of 4 years of system engineering, system integration, testing or related experience with Electro-Optic & Infrared (EOIR) systems & remote sensing

  • Ability to lead test team execution during the various test phases
  • Ability to operate special test equipment (STE)
  • Ability to execute and understand software for STE and system operation
  • Ability to generate test procedures and test plans from a requirements specification. Test plan development includes derivation of requirements into test methodology for verification sell-off.
  • Provide peer review of test procedures, and test plans.
  • Ability to generate other verification requirements documentation (i.e. Verification Cross Reference Matrix, Test Requirements Documents)
  • Experience generating and performing “on the floor” quick look data analysis to ensure validity of test data collected
  • Ability to generate high quality test reports.

  • Knowledge of the Integrated Product Development System (IPDS) and the Management System (MS)
  • Familiar with patent submission process
  • Experience with external conference publications
  • Knowledge of MIL-STD-1540, and MIL-STD-461
  • History with environmental testing including high vacuum systems, simulated altitude, cryogenic operating systems
  • Understanding of orbitology
  • Knowledge of C/C++, visual basic, or Visual C++ software language
  • Knowledge of firmware
  • Proficiency with Labview, and Test Equipment development and architecture
  • Proficient with Microsoft Project
  • Ability to obtain a SSBI Clearance

Required Education: Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Electrical Engineering or related technical field
