Hardware Cable Technicians
- Perform cable harness fabrication, assembly, and integration. Assemble cables on mock-up fixtures and on the spacecraft. Must be able to interpret mechanical drawings and wire diagrams.
- Must be able to work on and around ESD sensitive hardware.
- Must be able to hand solder per J-STD and/or NASA-STD 8739.4.
- Support spacecraft integration operations – spacecraft moves, securing test cables, relocate cables, support test mates/demates when needed
- Perform cabling wiring for qualification model, engineering model, and flight systems.
- Support the cognizant engineer in assessing and recommending design modifications.
- Support various customer labs during final integration.
- Technician must be able to work with limited or tight spacing, may include working under or over flight hardware.
- Technician should be available to support 2nd shift, if required.
- Fabrication of cables either on mockup and flight assembly
- Layup wires on mockup fixtures to fabricate harness assemblies
- Delivery of completed cables consisting of variety of different connector types (e.g. circular, D-Sub, or Micro-D).
- Integration and test of cables on flight assemblies
- The flight assembly or sub-system includes installation of baked-out flight cables, flight termination of thermal components (e.g. heaters, temp sensors, switches), and connectorization of mechanical assemblies (e.g. actuators, mechanisms, drivers).
- Support investigation, rework, and repair activities
- Support of flight mates and demates
- Delivery of flight sub-system to Assembly test and Launch Operations (ATLO) operations for integration
