Responsibilities
  • Work with the program director, principal engineer, and customer to distill a CONOP and identify leading drivers of success
  • Define the architecture topology that best meets the CONOP and understand key trades that are made through simulation and/or exploratory prototyping techniques. This includes but is not limited to developing accurate models to direct design of various vehicle subsystems (e.g, sensing, compute, communications, data storage, network security at scale, etc.)
  • Select components and subsystems for a complex community of group 5 UAVs that will meet the balance of cost, schedule, and performance of a rapid prototyping effort with a fast-approaching deadline
  • Prioritize and develop clear engineering strategies and accompanied resource plans. This is achieved by creating meaningful abstraction between sub-systems to guide engineering development efforts at scale and speed
  • Develop an architecture plan with MOSA, OMS, and UCI in mind ensuring compliance with Open Systems Architecture standards
  • Ensure system design will meet software assurance requirements and account for JSIG risk management framework
  • Create and carry out a validation plan for the end-to-end system
