Essential Job Functions (Including % of Time for Each)
The Systems Operability & Analysis Engineer will work with senior engineers within Systems Analysis Engineering to conduct cycle and engine matching analyses to analyze engine data to develop an understanding of component level performance and its relationship to overall engine performance. The engineer will perform these analyses for both steady-state and transient engine operating modes. The engineer will use test data to validate and update system simulations as required to enable accurate predictions of engine operating states. The engineer will work in a team environment to develop digital engine control logic and schedules to support Program development activities. This individual will mentor under the senior engineers to develop the necessary design skills required to analyze and create system designs and will utilize analysis configuration control principles to document results and conclusions.
40% - The systems analyst primarily will perform advanced concept thermodynamic design of liquid rocket engines and/or air-breathing engines to define propulsion cycles that meet functional vehicle requirements. During the development activities of these propulsion systems the systems analyst will primarily conduct performance analyses and evaluate the steady state and transient operation of these propulsion systems. Duties may include evaluation of ground test and flight data to determine engine health and conformance to performance requirements.
40% - Duties will include creating, maintaining and using math models of propulsion systems which characterize the thermodynamic, aerodynamic, fluid dynamic and mechanical operation of these systems. Alternatively, duties will include designing and testing engine control systems and control logic for liquid rocket and/or air-breathing engines.
