Guidance Navigation and Control Engineer / Orlando, Florida

Req ID :
384783BR
Job Code/Title :
E1463:Systems Engineer Sr
Job Description :
Seeking an emerging Guidance, Navigation and Tracking systems engineering candidate to learn and support the Navigation, Boresight, and general Line of Sight (LOS) Reconstruction Algorithms. Will learn how to run Navigation and FMB Simulations, do performance assessments, and support software integration. Candidate should have some experience with Navigation and LOS Reconstruction algorithms. Candidate should have experience or familiarity in some/all of the following technology areas: linear algebra, stochastic systems, optimal estimation theory, Kalman Filter applications, kinematics, and rotating coordinate systems. Candidate should possess good organizational and communication skills with the ability to quickly, accurately and concisely document and present their work. The individual should be fluent in MATLAB and C++ as well as have experience implementing and debugging algorithms.

Basic Qualifications
A Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) engineer assures that a platform is capable of finding its way to an intended destination and delivering its payload optimally. This is accomplished, in part, by performing Missile 6DOF simulation analysis and Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) simulation analysis. Inclusive in this process is the development and analysis of guidance, navigation and autopilot algorithms. In addition, development of simulation models and performing hardware integration is required. Performance verification and troubleshooting is also required. Target tracking is an integral part of guidance and fire control. The engineer will be responsible for designing target tracking systems which generally include target state estimation and target/detection association and assignment which is particularly challenging in surveillance systems. Must have experience with feedback control system design and analysis and knowledge of basic aerodynamic principles. Strong math skills are required in the areas of linear algebra, matrix math, statistics, and trigonometry and coordinate transformation. The candidate must have experience with state estimation filters such as Kalman, Extended Kalman filter (EKF) and multiple model adaptive estimation. Experience in terrestrial navigation and navigation state error estimation is also required. Must be experienced in MATLAB and C/C++ programming.

Must have a secret clearance that has been investigated in the last 5 years.

Desired skills
Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) simulation experience is valuable. Flight software integration and verification experience is also a plus. Experience with Embedded Software, RF/EO knowledge, and experience programming in FORTRAN is also a plus.
