Sr. Engineer / Systems Engineering
Canoga Park, CA | Contract
-The successful candidate will support several technical lead engineers in analyzing and evaluating design changes as well as supporting component/engine tests.
-The system is a pump-fed, staged combustion cycle, LOX/Kerosene liquid propulsion system with an ECU (Engine Control Unit).
The team more specifically focuses on:
(1) supporting integrated engine system trade studies through a homegrown analytical tool (EBAL) which iterates for a steady-state power balance optimizing the engine system for weight while meeting the needed (steady-state) thrust performance for vehicle mission success,
(2) defining a reliable, safe open/closed-loop control valve sequence using a time-dependent, homegrown detailed transient model (DTM)… involving physics-based, fluid dynamic, heat-transfer, and controls modeling, for scheduled start, throttle and shutdown operations such that no component exceeds their respective design constraints,
(3) developing elements of an real-time engine simulator for a HWIL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) system to support the ECU design, and
(4) supporting component/engine tests through test stand fluid facility modeling and test data analyses.
During the initial system development cycle the successful candidate is projected to support the technical lead in each SPA team focused area, as follows:
40% - Supporting integrated engine system trade studies, optimizing the engine system for weight while meeting the needed thrust performance for vehicle mission success.
40% - Defining a reliable, safe open/closed loop control valve sequence such that no AR component exceeds their respective design constraints.
10% - Developing elements of an real-time engine simulator for a HWIL system to support the ECU design and
10% - Supporting component/engine tests.
