The duties described below are for the highest grade level advertised. At developmental grade levels, assignments will be of more limited scope, performed with less independence and limited complexity.

As an Electronics Engineer specializing in Avionic Systems, you will direct and/or manage the development and design of large, new, and unusually complex instrument avionics technology, equipment, or systems that impact national or international programs and result in major advancement in the state-of-the-art of broad technologies. You will manage instrument avionics systems and subsystem interfaces with other divisions.

You will assist in the strategic planning and implementation of flight facility architectures and standards for life cycle integration, verification, and assessment of reliability of instrument avionics systems. You will coordinate resolution of inter-divisional subsystem differences and incompatibilities to ensure that consistent instrument avionics designs are obtained with efficient utilization of program resources. You will conceive, initiate, and perform special studies related to the future of instrument avionics architectures and the appropriate verification methodologies.

You will provide project liaison support for instrument avionics hardware, software, and interface development. You will represent the Center and agency managers to the international avionics community and perform additional data systems and analysis work.

You will serve as a recognized aerospace engineering expert authority, advising and consulting on a national and/or international level. You will direct, manage, and conduct special trade studies and analyses of marked importance that significantly impact the engineering field and lead to major modifications or important extensions of current practices, and resolve key problems facing the organization or agency. You will contribute new designs or techniques that are regarded as major advances or have opened the way for further developments, or have solved problems of great importance to the field, agency or public.
