As a Communications Systems Engineer, you will design, develop, and deliver state-of-the-art communication systems for space-based applications for commercial, civil, milsatcomm, and/or national security programs.. You will lead a highly-motivated team that works with domestic or international customers on their latest satellite systems.
* Define and develop satellite communications systems and payload architectures
* Lead trade studies
* Define and verify space communication system requirements and interfaces
* Lead system-level CONOPS development, functional analysis and decomposition
* Lead system-level integration and validation
* Perform analyses and simulations for space communication systems, including: link analysis, signal distortion, system capacity, reliability, and performance
* Develop analysis tools using MATLAB and object-oriented software platforms
* Develop and verify system algorithms that meet functional and performance requirements
* Perform hardware procurement, design reviews, and unit sell-off
* Lead system test preparation, execution, troubleshooting, and verification
* Mentor the program junior communication systems engineers and review their work for quality.
Project assignments typically span the complete program life cycle, from internal trades, concept studies and system definition, to satellite development, launch, and on-orbit operations and test. Candidates will belong to a systems engineering team interacting with customers, suppliers, program management, integration and test engineers, and senior technologists.
