Requirements
  • Bachelor's or higher degree in engineering or a hard science with a focus in structures
  • Deep understanding of statics, aeroelastic, solid mechanics, materials, finite element analysis, and dynamic testing
  • 4+ years of experience designing and analyzing aircraft structures
  • Proficiency in the use of FEMAP/Nastran
  • Structural and flight testing experience - sensor selection, data acquisition, data post processing (Python preferred)
  • Highly motivated, self-starting, and able to perform duties autonomously without supervision
  • Very organized and willing to establish scope and requirements for ill-defined problems
  • Passion for defending the United States and her allies
  • Must be able to obtain and hold a U.S. Top Secret security clearance
Responsibilities
  • Perform hand calculations and spreadsheet first order models to inform path forward before jumping into detailed design or analysis. Use first principles as a basis for every decision
  • Communicate pros/cons of system architecture with respect to structural considerations. Strong focus on good architecture to ensure designs are robust in nature
  • Work with aero/CFD engineers and others to define loads for aircraft structure and subsystems
  • Generate and maintain integrated FEMs for flying vehicles. Astutely pace model maturity based on state of hardware design and program goals
  • Perform coupled aero-structural analysis on flight vehicle designs (flutter, aeroelastic, etc.)
  • Support flight vehicle structural certification efforts - whether requirements are defined by customer (SEEK EAGLE, FAR, etc.) or, in the absence of customer requirements, internally defined by logic and best practices (which you will help define)
  • Develop internal tools and reports for communicating loads and analysis results across teams
  • Present status at formal reviews with Customer and internally. Technical status, risk tracking, inputs to program planning, etc
  • Interview other team members as projects grow in scope and complexity. Attract strong technical talent
  • Provide structural test inputs to help build out lab space and infrastructure
  • Create test models, define test loads, requirements and margins, and oversee structural testing
Desired Qualifications
  • Structural analysis or design experience on other complex hardware - rockets, satellites, etc
  • Experience with rotorcraft
  • Experience developing code in higher level languages (e.g. Python, MATLAB, C++) for developing analytical models and data acquisition and automation
