Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world.
We are searching for talented candidates with experience in Flight Dynamics, including Mission Design of LEO Constellations, Maneuver Planning, Navigation, Fleet Operations, and Flight Dynamics System development.
This position requires experience in simulation and analysis of astrodynamics models and spaceflight trajectories. Strong analysis skills are required to develop engineering studies of complex large-scale dynamical systems. This position requires demonstrated expertise in computational analysis automation and tool development.
Working with the Kuiper engineering team, you will:
Implement high fidelity modeling techniques for analysis and simulation of large constellation concepts.
Help develop algorithms for station-keeping and constellation maintenance.
Perform analysis in support of multi-disciplinary trades within the Kuiper team.
Formulate solutions to address collision avoidance and conjunction assessment challenges.
Help develop the Kuiper ground system's Flight Dynamics System functional requirements, including navigation, maneuver planning, maneuver reconstruction and trending.
Work closely with GNC engineers to manage on-orbit performance and develop flight dynamics operations processes.
Export Control Requirement:
Due to applicable export control laws and regulations, candidates must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (i.e., current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.
