The individual in this role will act as the primary integration and test systems engineer responsible for coordinating and overseeing verification and test planning for the integration of the spacecraft bus, mission payload, and communication payload to ensure seamless end-to-end mission performance. The I&T SE has overall technical responsibility for the design and development of the test plan and flow for the Space Vehicle as well as ownership of the Test Bed and Simulators. - The I&T SE serves as the primary point of contact between the SV Engineering team and the Assembly, Integration, and Test (AIT) execution and operations team and coordinates major integration and test activities. - The I&T SE will coordinate all integration and test technical efforts to generate contractually required system design documents and design review technical packages. -Essential Functions: -

  • Develops, manages and maintains the verification and test plans and procedures for integrating the spacecraft bus, mission payload and communications payload according to space vehicle level requirements and internal and external ICDs
  • Designs tests to verify the functionality, performance, and safety of the space vehicle, including environmental testing (thermal, vibration, and vacuum tests), performance, and functional testing.
  • Ensures that the integrated space vehicle, test beds, simulators, Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE), and Mechanical Ground Support Equipment (MGSE) meets all technical requirements and specifications through rigorous verification and validation processes.
  • Coordinates interfaces between spacecraft bus, mission payload and communications payload, electrical, software, and mechanical interfaces.
  • Identifies and resolves technical issues and anomalies that arise during integration and testing, working closely with cross-functional teams to address any discrepancies
  • Generates comprehensive documentation, test reports, and data analysis to communicate the results of integration and testing activities
  • Identifies potential risks and develops mitigation strategies to ensure the successful integration and testing of the space vehicle
  • Extracts test and environmental requirements from mission-level and CONOPs and cascades them to all levels of space vehicle testing, encompassing allocations into software, firmware, and hardware, as well as test beds and simulators.
  • Ensures test functional and physical changes and requirements compliance are being addressed throughout the SV design.
  • Maintains cognizance and communicates changes of the SV subcontractor and in-house test programs
  • Support to the system modeling teams in generation of Cameo system views and simulations as well as ConOps generation
  • Works closely with Software, Mechanical, and Electrical Systems Engineers to own and oversees End-to-End integration and test of spacecraft bus, mission payload, and communications payload across the full program lifecycle
