Key Responsibilities (Essential Functions):

* Development of hypersonic systems architectures and requirements.

* Knowledge of system engineering design methods including requirements analysis and flow down.

* Concept development and execution of trade studies for hypersonic missile applications.

* Development of overall system integration plan and subsystem strategy for design, analysis, and testing.

* Assessing system interface and integration risks through simulation and flight test data analysis.

* Development of systems models for use in high fidelity simulations.

* Implementation of advanced guidance algorithms to maximize performance of hypersonic systems.

* Coding of algorithms in higher order computer languages to support simulation development.

* Performance analysis by simulation and flight test, including verification and validation techniques.

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment .

Note: This position can be Salary Grade G09 (Senior Systems Engineer II) or Salary Grade G10 (Principal Systems Engineer) based upon the applicants qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position.

Required Education, Skills, and Experience (Senior Systems Engineer II):

* Bachelors Degree in engineering disciplines, natural or physical sciences, mathematics, or physics.

* Six (6) years of Guidance, Navigation and Controls Engineering or Systems Engineering experience

* Two (2) years of professional experience in hypersonic or supersonic aircraft or missile system design and analysis using high fidelity simulations.

* Experience conducting trade studies to analyze and enhance system performance.

* Prior work experience developing or modifying code in higher level languages like FORTRAN, Ada, C++, and/or MATLAB to support embedded software development and/or hardware/software integration.

* United States citizenship

* Must be willing to relocate to Tucson, AZ (comprehensive relocation package available)

Desired Education, Skills and Experience:

* MS or PhD in aforementioned disciplines. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard

* Prior experience performing analysis of hypersonic / supersonic air vehicle attributes in either simulation or flight test venues.

* Research and/or applied experience in advanced hypersonics systems design techniques such as:

* Development of hypersonic guidance algorithm architectures and requirements.

* Optimal guidance theory, trajectory shaping, estimation theory, analysis of random processes, non-linear Kalman filters, and/or particle filters.

* Advanced control techniques such as adaptive control, nonlinear control, or integrated guidance and control.

* Development of hypersonic autopilot topologies and requirements.

* Development of hypersonic aerodynamic configurations and requirements.

* Conducting high-speed wind tunnel tests and CFD analysis to predict aerodynamic effects.

* Analyzing the effects of the high-speed environment on RADAR and RF systems.

* Demonstrated experience taking a hypersonic missile design from concept to flight test with expertise verifying subsystem performance from simulation and post-flight data analysis.

* Experience in model development and testing with proven knowledge of fundamental concepts and a high level of analytical capability to drive technical solutions.

* Concept development to generate the specifications and documentation necessary to support architecture design and integration of requirements into simulation and tactical applications.

* Career development skills, including written and oral communication skills and the ability to work in a team environment.

* Familiarity and knowledge of systems engineering and analysis for interfacing with multiple engineering disciplines.

* Ability to operate independently with minimal supervision as well as part of a team.

* Ability to communicate effectively with senior leadership and other engineering disciplines.

* Coupled analysis, specifically aero/thermal/structural analysis

* Experience leading a program focused development team, with understanding of how to balance and drive system performance and survivability.

* Well known with established relationships in the defense community including the hypersonics technical domain, with patents and publications in applicable technical areas a plus.
