This position will focus on leading and tasking as an assistant to the Integrated Product Team Manager for the Ground Control Station (GCS) IPT.
•Guide the development of the next generation of Ground Station Control Systems working with an established team of Mechanical, Electrical, RF, Networking and Software Engineers.
•Create new electrical and component design solutions that will reduce the size of the GCS system and packaging that will increase the GCS resiliency to shock, thermal, dust, water, etc.
•Provides approval of workgroup technical approaches, products and processes. Develops and maintains partnerships with customers, stakeholders and team members.
•Establishes and/or implements electrical –mechanical system architecture. Identifies new technologies and develops design requirements. Allocates requirements across system architecture and designs and conducts trade studies. Monitors subsystem design development activities for architectural consistency. Performs and/or evaluates risk assessments and generates or approves risk mitigation plans and strategies.
•Evaluate sub system design development. De-conflicts and resolves module-level requirements allocations. Reviews electrical-mechanical system architectures and supports development of detailed electrical-mechanical hardware and firmware designs.
•Establishes the electronic hardware interface designs and review and monitors design consistency. Reviews and approves electronic hardware documentation packages.
•Approves and monitors verification and validation procedures and/or system designs. Evaluates testing/analysis of electrical-mechanical components, equipment, and systems results.
•Establishes technical performance metrics. Diagnoses system-wide malfunctions, monitors trends in verification results and reviews/approves design improvements or modifications.
•Assists the IPT Manager to oversee staff performing cross-functional work statement across a variety of engineering development and product support disciplines to deliver fully integrated UAV and Mission Systems.
•Provides input to project and/or operational plans aligned to company objectives.
