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.

This role is for an innovative and dynamic individual to develop the mechanical design of spacecraft battery systems. In this role, you'll develop high reliability battery systems producible in volume at lowest possible cost. This is very much a hands-on role requiring design and detailed mechanical /thermal analysis of all aspects of spacecraft battery packs all material selections, interconnect designs, connector selections, etc., to deliver a highly optimized module that can be manufactured/assembled/tested with high volume equipment.

Responsibilities

  • Mechanical Design for Spacecraft Battery systems.

  • Design trades for battery pack integration with vehicle optimizing for size, weight, assembly, cost.

  • Develop cell mounting schemes and high reliability interconnect methods. Set up and drive DoE's as needed to down select / verify essential design elements materials, adhesives, connector selections, etc.

  • Analyze (classical / FEA) all load conditions (static, dynamic, thermal, fatigue) for compliance.

  • Develop prototypes for test and performance evaluation against cell specifications, for multiple environments. Set up conditions (internally or with technology partners) to support long term reliability analysis with battery management system algorithms charging/recharging strategies, cycles, temperature ranges, etc.

  • Work with manufacturing and automation personnel to ensure cost optimized assembly and test solutions for intended volume production.

  • Qualification and acceptance testing to verify design.

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.

VIEW JOBS 4/5/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-07-04T00:00 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. This role is for a highly innovative and dynamic individual with the ability and drive to design and develop spacecraft mechanisms. In this role, you'll identify the requirements through negotiation with other disciplines, apply research, your creativity, and experience to develop mechanisms that meet reliability goals and are producible at volume in very low cost. This is very much a hand-on role and requires a self-starter with extensive skills in mechanical analysis, and the ability to drive multiple trades and iterations of design, build, and test as vehicle design advances, while diligently driving the design to the simplest possible solution that satisfies the requirements. Responsibilities * Identify and analyze requirements, conceive and develop trade studies on mechanism design options. * Create and iterate detailed CAD models of design options – mechanism geometry, materials / lubrication selections, assembly processes and test methods. * Analyze (classical / FEA) all load conditions (static, dynamic, thermal, fatigue) for compliance. * Develop test plans throughout development with variable isolation DOEs and statistical analysis for long term reliability assessments as needed. * Define qualification plans and identify acceptance testing methods at volume production. * Facilitate cost trades on multiple parallel configurations for cost/manufacturability vs design uncertainty. * Produce complete design packages – detailed drawings, analysis reports, BOMs, Assembly documentation. 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.
