Provides software solution navigation and visual systems for use in pilot training. Must simulate or stimulate navigation avionics, infrastructure and aircraft environment, including providing the interface to the visual system. IS responsible for product from design phase, through the hardware integration phase, continuing in customer and certification authority and ultimately in ongoing customer support.
Will work on a variety of devices, from Full Flight Simulators with six degree-of-freedom motions systems and wraparound visual systems to graphics based desktop trainers.
Implements all standard navigation/visual systems simulation software and integrates the software with that of other engineering disciplines such as aircraft systems, propulsion, flight, instructor station, autoflight systems and visual systems.
If aircraft data is not available, required to assist in gathering data from aircraft or test bench to be used to re-engineer the aircraft avionics.
Develops graphical representations of aircraft instruments and displays for lower level (desktop) trainers and re-engineered avionics in high level trainers.
Prepares customer test guide for the navigation systems that will be used to verify that the simulation satisfies the simulator specification requirements.
Studies aircraft data (wiring diagrams, avionic specifications, etc.) to design real time software to accurately model the avionic's behavior.
Performs standardized checkout procedures. Performs standardized procedures to verify that the design meets the requirements of the customer test guide.
Presents and demonstrates the simulator operation to the customer and correct deficiencies identified by the customer. This may include working at customer facilities.
Works well with software and hardware engineers, technicians, project engineers and program managers. Interacts within a cooperative environment through beneficial behavior, commitment to common goals, contribution to problem solving, communication of ideas and suggestions and encouragement.
