Description

Senior GNC Engineer II

We are a company of innovators, game changers, and entrepreneurs. As a prime contractor, we provide a broad range of communication, electronic and sensor systems used on military and commercial platforms across the globe. We embrace innovative and progressive ideas to advance our products for military and commercial customers. Electronic Systems Segment (ESS) is one of four L3 business segments, and provides a broad range of aerospace systems, security and detection systems, and pilot training.

L3 AS&T is built on the proposition that a small team of the right people can do what others will not even attempt. We specialize in developing disruptive, next-generation technologies for advanced small UASs, affordable radar systems, weapon systems, and RF sensor technologies using small company agility and big company experience. We’ve earned a reputation for providing vital warfighter solutions at a faster pace than traditional DoD contractors, so if you like the idea of hands-on experience designing, building, testing and fielding new technology, join us.

As a Senior GNC Engineer, you will work with cross-functional engineering teams to quickly provide solutions for our customers. This position provides advanced concept development, design, implementation, test, and evaluation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The position can include time in office, lab, and infrequent flight test environments depending on program/task.

You will demonstrate success by:

*

Development of outer-loop control algorithms utilizing feedback from a variety of sensors for precision guidance and ISR mission support

*

Development of inner-loop control algorithms for vehicle stability and performance

*

Development of navigation solutions using GPS and/or alternate-sensor aiding

*

Development of high-fidelity 6DOF math models to simulate/recreate dynamic behavior of airborne flight systems and their sub-components

*

Technology planning and system-level trade studies providing requirements and performance specification

*

Mentoring engineers by demonstrating excellent interpersonal, communication, and documentation skills

*

Other duties as assigned

Our Values are an integral part of who we are. We seek candidates who share our values:

* Integrity

* Excellence

* Accountability

* Respect

Qualifications

*

Aerospace, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering degree with an emphasis on Control Theory (advanced degree preferred)

*

10+ years of experience in airborne flight control systems or related field

*

10+ years of experience using integrated sensor systems for guidance and/or navigation

*

Fluency in Matlab/Simulink for development and analysis

*

Experience with GPS and alternate-sensor hardware as applied to navigation development/solutions

*

Working knowledge in C/C++ programming

*

Experience with modeling and control high-speed aerodynamics and control of power plant/propulsion systems

*

Willingness and desire to train less experienced GNC engineers via mentoring and/or technically focused training sessions

* US Citizenship is required with the ability to obtain and maintain DoD clearnce and additional clearances, as required.
