Lockheed Martin is looking for a forward-thinking Senior Spacecraft Systems Engineer to join the Navigation Systems team focusing GPS-III and IIIF programs.

As a Senior Spacecraft Systems Engineer, you will:

  • Develop electrical subsystem designs to ensure compliance with the spacecraft level technical baseline, maintaining end to end compatibility, functional allocations and margins

  • Perform electrical performance and integration, power modeling, channelization/electrical interconnect management, compatibility analysis.

  • Perform architecture trade studies for spacecraft design, command and control and mission data processing

  • Perform complex trades to establish the baseline architecture, incorporating components from multiple heritage systems as well as newly developed systems

  • Support Systems Certified Principal Engineer (CPE) and the Space Vehicle CPE, the technical advocate for the satellite throughout its lifecycle, from requirements definition through mission operations; the CPE verifies that the satellite aligns with both the Command Media and program technical requirements, and resists inappropriate compromise and risk, checks programmatic decisions, and balances technical performance, cost, schedule, and risk, while ensuring mission success

  • Participate in developing and executing critical development reviews such as SRR, SDR, PDR and CDR, effectively communicating to program and customer management and executive leadership extemporaneously and in formal reviews

  • Perform Electrical compatibility and circuit analyses (working with IPTs, CPEs, RSEs)

  • Perform verification and validation flow for key system level electrical requirements

  • Perform risk mitigation activities for complex interfaces to ensure a smooth integration at the system level

  • Support Flight Software, Integration & Test (I&T), and system CPEs during integration and test phase (all levels), including leading or supporting anomaly investigations as appropriate

Typically has 5 - 10 years of professional experience.

To promote the sharing of ideas, Lockheed Martin cultivates an inclusive work environment that inspires differences and big-picture thinking.
