Job Description:

The Mechanical Subsystems Directorate (MSD) is searching for a Mechanical Design Engineer / Electromechanical Design Engineer with experience in mechanism / moving element designs for its Huntsville, Alabama location.

Job Description:

In this position, the candidate will be responsible for developing technical solutions for a wide range of moving element challenges, such as aerodynamic steering, thrust vectoring, attitude and divert maneuvering, pointing, and stabilizing of missile systems & subsystems. Responsibility extends across the entire life cycle of the product, from conceptualizing and design, to prototyping and manufacturing, integration and verification testing, through production support. The candidate will be expected to apply sound mechanical engineering principles to solve complex system problems while teaming with a cross-discipline team including electrical engineering, systems engineering, flight science, manufacturing engineering, supply chain and others.

Specific tasks may include requirements development and comprehension, concept development, trade study evaluation, 3D modeling support, free body diagram generation, first order structural and thermal analysis, gear analysis, material assessment and selection, datum selection and application of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, tolerance analysis, margin analysis, support of drawing development, support of manufacturing process and build tooling development, support of test process and test equipment development and participation in design reviews.

Day-to-day activities are highly collaborative, both internally across disciplines as well as externally with suppliers. Hands-on opportunity is plentiful, as great emphasis is put on exposing designers to the hardware through participation in prototype building and verification testing, thus enabling firsthand knowledge of system performance.

Assigned responsibilities could grow to include a team leadership role of a major hardware subsystem on a specific program, or leadership of a functional engineering section or technology area accountable for the team members technical execution of programs and projects. In this role, accountability for technical success across disciplines (mechanical, electrical, algorithm, software, integration, etc.), risk management, system integration into the overall final assembly, creation and implementation of design and development strategy, authoring of proposals and basis-of-estimates for new business capture, and adherence to cost and schedule commitments would be required.
