Pratt & Whitney, a recognized leading producer of the world's most powerful jet engines, is looking for dedicated individuals to support our organization.
If you aspire to work in a dynamic environment and possess the motivations to convert new ideas into practice, this may be the opportunity you've been looking for.
Have you considered what it may be like to work at Pratt & Whitney? We have a rare opportunity for a talented Control & Diagnostic Systems On-Board Modeling and Estimation Engineer to be based in East Hartford, Connecticut.
Control & Diagnostic Systems (CDS) is a dynamic engineering organization focused on the development and certification of military, commercial and industrial gas turbine engine control, and diagnostic systems. CDS is responsible for all aspects of Pratt & Whitney engine control and diagnostic system development including: requirements analysis & definition, system & software architecture, algorithm design, and product software design, verification & validation. The on-board modeling and estimation discipline designs real-time, embedded engine models and estimators for synthesizing unmeasured engine parameters that are critical for control, diagnostics, performance, and operability. We are involved from concept initiation phase to entry in service and collaborate with various disciplines to ensure that synthesized parameters meet requirements.
This position offers a career opportunity to expand your knowledge at system level towards developing advanced technologies with extraordinary impact on aerospace industry.
Develop physics-based models of turbo-machinery components by applying principles and methods from thermodynamics, aerodynamics, and heat transfer and integrating component models into an overall engine model.
Design and analyze estimation algorithms by applying methods and tools from multi-input multi-output dynamical linear system and estimation theories.
Develop statistical models and methods for modeling various uncertainty types and for processing simulation results and data.
Implement and simulate models and estimators in engineering computational environments such as Matlab/Simulink.
Exhibit great interpersonal skills, and a genuine interest in building upon and growing experience through interactions with experts from other disciplines (Requirements, Performance, Operability, Software, Real-Time Test Hardware, and Verification).
