Sandia National Laboratories is searching for a Systems Engineer to join the Global Burst Detector Systems Engineering Department team located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The candidate selected for this position will be required to have the ability to obtain and maintain a DOE-granted “Q-level” security clearance, which requires U.S. Citizenship. A security clearance is not required to start.
The Global Burst Detector System Engineering Department is responsible for flight segment system engineering for the U.S. Nuclear Detonation Detection System (USNDS). The full GBD payload life cycle is supported within a structured systems engineering approach compliant with AS9100C. The group has the following responsibilities: captures and defines stakeholder expectations; defines system architecture; derives, allocates and manages requirements; provides system level coordination for subsystems, space vehicle integration and ground commanding/telemetry; assures verification of requirements; and is responsible for definition and execution of all lifecycle reviews. These activities are performed in close collaboration with flight segment colleagues at LANL.
An opening exists for an individual with a strong systems engineering background to become a member of the NNSA Space Segment Systems Engineering group. The new team member will join a systems engineering team in developing and executing systems engineering processes across the entire lifecycle for the Global Burst Detector (GBD) payload, as well as supporting its ability to interface with the space vehicle host and ground segment users. This support includes defining and developing requirements, driving verification and validation, creating all associated documentation, conducting required formal lifecycle reviews, and assisting with post-deployment requirements traceability.
This is an opportunity to become involved in a high visibility program that manages the full range of space system deliverables, including on-orbit satellites, production payload streams and planning for new satellite sensors and payloads. Improved system engineering is a major thrust of our program and there will be an opportunity to influence and improve the processes used to develop the payload systems.
