**Description:** Performs dynamic analyses on missile and spacecraft flight hardware. Produces and maintains dynamic models generated from both in-house and commercially available software codes, that simulate re-entry body and missile segment staging and separation events as well as spacecraft dynamic/separation events. The successful candidate will also perform loads development (primary structure and component level), shock and vibration environments determination and component and system level testing and data evaluation. Works under the direction of lead dynamics analysis engineer with the objective of positioning the selected candidate into a future lead or subject matter expert role. Assists in preparation of test plans; static, separation dynamics, vibration, modal and shock test execution; and post-test reports. It is desired that the candidate possesses working knowledge of finite element analysis, and coursework or work experience in rigid and flexible body lumped-parameters. Responsibilities may also include being a team member of a product development team, where effective communication is critical.
The candidate is expected to be able to process and analyze flight telemetry data from accelerometers, inertial measurement units as well as other instrumentation used to obtain structural dynamic data. Analysis may include performance and trend observations that can be quantified using standard statistical methods.
Will be required to support designers and other analysts in determining highly producible designs that meet structural dynamic requirements. Will be required to support dynamic test definitions, requirements development, monitoring, data reduction, and comparison to analysis efforts. Prepares test plans and dynamics analysis reports. Interfaces with outside organizations to obtain information necessary to complete the analysis.
Must be willing and able to obtain security clearance.
Bachelors degree from an accredited college in a related discipline, or equivalent experience/combined education, with 5 years of professional experience; or 3 years of professional experience with a related Masters degree. Considered career, or journey, level.
BS/MS degrees from Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering or equivalent/related fields (or equivalent). The candidate must possess strong communication, both oral and written, interpersonal, and presentation skills.
Working knowledge of MATLAB (or similar) is desired.
Familiarity with dynamic or structural testing.
Dynamics: Course work in basic dynamics (including multi-body / rigid body dynamics and equations of motion), finite element analysis, statics, mechanics of materials (strength of materials).
Working knowledge of ADAMS is desired.
Working knowledge of NASTRAN or ABAQUS, NX, Pro-E/CREO, LINUX and standard Windows software environment desired.
Familiarity with programming principles and languages a plus.
Familiarity with various forms of testing (static, thermal, acoustics, random vibration, and shock) and digital data acquisition systems including high speed video capture/analysis is a plus.
Familiarity with the Ballistic Missiles including Reentry Body performance a plus.
Holds an active secret clearance is a plus.
