Boeing Defense Space & Security has an exciting opportunity for a Senior, Dynamic Loads Analyst to join our Flight Capabilities Team located in Huntsville, AL

As a Senior Dynamic Loads Analyst you will support the Huntsville Loads and Dynamics Flight Capability manager across various Programs. The Space Launch System (SLS) program (primary program supported), in conjunction with NASA, is developing the nation's capability in manned access to space, including destinations beyond Earth orbit. This position performs loads development, integration, and documentation of advanced structural analysis across multiple Boeing Development Systems (BDS) programs, including the SLS Program and Commercial Crew. You will perform detailed finite element modeling and coupled loads analysis for the Exploration Upper Stage. You will be responsible for generating design loads in pursuit of the overall design, development, and test of hardware.

Position Responsibilities

  • Directly supports the Huntsville Alabama Loads and Dynamics Flight Capability leader across multiple programs and several sites.

  • Conducts analysis processes independently, in consultation with more senior engineers, to support loads analyses.

  • Loads analysis includes independent simulations using NASTRAN of all ground and flight events to which the launch vehicle is exposed, and the development of internal loads on secondary structures or components associated with these flight events. Examples include liftoff, ascent (gust/buffet response), and base-drive analysis using NASTRAN, etc.

  • Performance of loads and dynamics analysis to assure compliance with structural integrity and stability requirements, taking guidance from the Technical Lead.

  • Analysis, test, and certification of space flight hardware designs for NASA's Space Launch Systems, Exploration Upper Stage (EUS).

  • Leadership will include tasking and oversight of junior and senior analysts.

  • Method selection, tools, and technical authority will be developed.

  • 10+ years of experience in generating launch vehicle Craig-Bampton Models and performing Coupled Loads Analysis.

  • 10+ years of experience in creating launch vehicle Load Transformation Matrices (LTM) for aerospace applications.

  • Desirable to have experience in dynamic test planning and test data evaluation for launch vehicles.

  • Experience with structural dynamic analysis and/or FEA based loads development

  • Experience with loads development for NASA or Air Force programs.

  • Experience on space, launch vehicle, and/or aircraft programs.

  • Experience with project management work, to include meeting cost, schedule and quality targets.
