BAE Systems Space Power Supply Designer Engineer- 2020 College Grad in Manassas, Virginia
College 2020 Graduate Requisition:
Our BAE Systems Space Systems business is continuing its dynamic growth due to the expansion of current programs and the award of new contracts. As a result, we have an opening for a Power Systems Design Engineer to assist in the development of power electronics for next generation space processing. BAE Space Systems is highly touted as an industry leader for its suite of radiation hardened products. BAE Systems Manassas leverages decades of expertise in designing and building robust Space products that can be found on almost all commercial, civil and national security Space missions. These missions include GPS, weather monitoring, satellite TV and radio, and exploring the universe (most notably the computers on all Mars rovers). From semiconductor components to ASICS to Circuit Card Assemblies and Sub- Systems, our products are ubiquitous throughout Earth s orbit and beyond.
As a Power Systems Design Engineer, the individual will contribute on programs to design power supply Circuit Card Assemblies (CCAs) for integration into box level solutions. The individual will also contribute power expertise such as power management, efficiency analysis and component selection to the other CCAs in the box that the power supply is powering. Power Engineers are involved from the conceptual development (system level block modelling and requirement generation) through the preliminary and detailed designs, the Worst Case Analysis of these designs and into test bring-up within our in-house test facilities. These designs will be radiation hardened and targeted to a Space environment. The engineer should be a self-starter who can work with a multidisciplinary team to identify potential hurdles in the product development and proactively drive solutions while achieving program cost, schedule, and technical goals. Candidates will gain experience managing schedules, generating responsible bids, assessing technical reviews and work products, implementing the hardware development process, and supporting customers. Any prior academic or project work in these categories is highly sought after. Candidates must be able to collaborate with Systems Engineering, Operations, Procurement, Quality, and Program Management Office (PMO) to develop a product.
