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. To deliver on that mission, Amazon is looking for talented candidates who combine superb technical, research and analytical capabilities with a demonstrated ability to get the right things done quickly and effectively. We're looking for people who innovate and love solving hard problems and building hardware. You will work hard, have fun, and make history! This senior structural dynamics engineer must have a successful background in spacecraft development, and is a domain expert in structural and dynamics analysis (modal, sine, transient, random vibration, acoustic, shock, multi body dynamics), system test, data correlation and model validation. The ideal candidate has a history of supporting spacecraft structural architecture trades, working with a multidisciplinary team to define optimal vehicle configurations for mission performance, reliability, mass, cost. Responsibilities: * Performing structural / dynamic loads analyses, and multi-body dynamic simulations for subsystem and vehicle level trades, leading to spacecraft structural design selection. * Assembling, scrutinizing, and negotiating requirements, defining test specifications and margins. * Key contributor to spacecraft structural / dynamics test planning, equipment and instrumentation selection, and data acquisition. * Supporting static test of primary structure for maximum expected dynamic inertial loading in mass optimized designs. * Pretest simulations, response limiting/notching definition, and post-test data analysis and correlation / validation of analytical model. * FEA models for all vehicle states, GSE/transport, Launch vehicle (stowed), on-orbit states (dispensing, deployments) * Work with G&C team to deliver linear modal models of principal structural disturbance responses to the integrated flight simulation & similar analysis tools. * Pointing accuracy trades; build dynamic disturbance models from spacecraft MMAs, and incorporating predictions of thermal profile transients, to identify and mitigate jitter effects on pointing precision. * Developing structural analysis methods and best practices, mentor junior staff. * Analysis of bolted and bonded Joints, potted inserts, and composite laminate analysis. 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.
