Software Engineer


SAIC is looking for an engineer to support the development, evaluation, and testing of munition systems for the United States Air Force. Specifically, it involves the development of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) including hardware design, test, and evaluation; simulations and flight test software; algorithm development, algorithm in the loop testing, integrated system simulation testing, component and system modeling, hardware in the loop testing, and flight test demonstrations.


The successful engineer will work with senior personnel to develop system component models, tactical algorithms, simulations, and software support tools to aid in the development and test of both hardware and software. In addition, the engineer may be required to support the development of hardware and software interfaces unique to test units. The engineer will be expected to document processes, procedures, and test results, and report these to their program supervisor.
