SD&P Modeling, Simulation & Analysis - Systems Engineer I

***This position is for early career individuals who have less than 2 years of professional work experience and who will receive a degree during the current academic year or who received their degree within the last 18 months.***

Missile Systems engineers develop the next generation of defense technologies that support our military and protect our nation and our allies. We are the world’s leader in developing and manufacturing leading edge missile systems and defense solutions and we are looking for engineers who enjoy solving complex problems and engaging in a dynamic team environment.

The efforts of the Modeling and Simulation Engineers within the System Design & Performance (SD&P) Directorate of Missile Systems allow the customer to experiment with and develop new complex weapon systems in a simulation-driven virtual environment. We create battlefield simulations, detailed hardware and environment models, perform post flight analysis, physics based modeling, integrate flight software, run time optimization, and investigate military product value. Our department’s engineers are versatile, innovative, self-motivated and eager to learn.

Our Huntsville, AL, location has openings available for Modeling and Simulation Engineers to join our team of engineering professionals, specifically for shaping and supporting complex systems in the early development phase. Learn more and apply today!

Key Responsibilities

The Systems Engineer I will work with a team of engineers to design and develop multiple fidelities of simulation model which represent the components of a system. This includes showcasing the ability to read, debug, edit and create computer programming code to enhance simulation models, creating and executing unit tests on the models to verify functionality, and documenting the design. This may also include development of interfaces to support Computer and Hardware-in-the-Loop capabilities within the simulation framework.

The Systems Engineer I will execute simulations as directed in a high-performance computing environment, which can include the use of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), to support missile system design/trade studies, performance assessment, and system test.

The Systems Engineer I will analyze data as directed, identifying any anomalies observed in the simulation data results. Please note: We are not seeking engineers with an AutoCAD or 3-D modeling background or network modeling from an IT perspective.
