Are you amazed by the satellite views of cool places on Earth? Are you excited by the fire and fury of a rocket launching into space to examine distant galaxies? All of these capabilities are made possible by the products made by Space and Airborne Systems. We invite you to consider joining us in developing the next generation of space-based imaging systems.
Perhaps your interests are in EO/IR optical or RF technology, sensor test, orbital mechanics, digital signal processing, space mission planning or any of the myriad of engineering disciplines that make space imaging a reality. Engineering and the sciences are the avenues we use to make innovative imaging products that protect our planet, explore our universe, and ensure our national security. If you have a clear passion for developing or testing new technologies, we would like to hear from you. Space imaging is a rapidly expanding field, and we seek your skills and imagination to grow in partnership with us.
We are Space Systems Engineering Integration & Test (SEIT). Our job is to ensure that from beginning to end, our products are properly engineered. When a program begins, our Systems Engineers and Analysts define the product requirements based on the needs of the customer. Our Integration Engineers take the individual elements of the product and assemble them to create the most advanced imaging systems on the planet. Finally, our Test Engineers test the completed system in the most severe environmental conditions.
Systems Engineering, Integration and Test is a great place to become intimately involved in the hardware, software, and missions of space systems. We analyze product options using simulations and modeling to select the best designs. We examine the technical requirements for our products, develop plans and procedures for testing, conduct tests, and analyze test data to ensure the systems will work as intended in the brutal environment of space.
Often our products include advanced lenses, mirrors, focal plane arrays, antennas, motors, cooling systems, power supplies, processors, and loads of electronics and software. Our engineers develop a keen understanding of high tech space products, which is a fantastic gateway to career advancement in technical leadership or management.
When a rocket vaults our products into orbit, our teams cheer our work into space with a sense of well-deserved pride and accomplishment. Our contributions are real, and make an important difference in the world.

Roles:
The type of work you can do in the SEIT organization depends on your level of experience and interests:

  • Perform modeling and simulation of space systems missions and equipment
  • Develop architectures, requirements, test strategies, and verification plans
  • Conduct test activities, such as verification of imaging performance, software, and environmental compatibility
  • Communicate status, results and recovery plans to management and engineering teams
  • Participate in system engineering reviews and engineering analysis of space systems
  • Support new business development efforts through participation in proposal generation

For Multi-Level Intern Requisitions:
