Senior Systems Engineer, Mountain View, CA

Current policies and regulations for air traffic management have the ability to balance safety and efficiency in the national Airspace, but commercial and private use of Low-altitude small Unmanned Aircraft Systems has added a significant risk to manned aircraft. As these UAS begin to operate beyond line of sight or autonomously and air traffic becomes highly congested, it is critical for the DoD to safely integrate into the UTM system. The development of the UTM System needs to incorporate the DoD needs for the use of Manned and Unmanned systems being flown today and in the future.

The successful candidate for this position will lead an engineering team supporting concept of operations development for DoD manned and unmanned UAS operating in UTM. Support development of procedures, requirements, architectures and hardware/software specifications for UTM integration with DoD manned and unmanned operations. Lead the definition of standards for DoD operation in UTM. Document DoD mission needs and functional requirements. Develop proposed system design from the DoD based on system requirements – includes specification of hardware and software to be procured/developed. Complete initial software modifications to support DoD operations in UTM, design relevant experiments in the UTM lab, conduct simulation experiments, document results and lessons learned.

Required Skills and Traits:

ConOps development, requirements specification/analysis/refinement, simulation, systems architecture and software architecture development in the area of air traffic management (ATM). Focus on ATM automation including safety analysis. Track record of technical publications and participation in professional association activities such as seminars, tutorials, mentoring, etc. Leadership in ATM systems engineering with proven track record of ATM-related applications development. Familiarity with on-going engineering research and enhancement of ATM, including integration of UAS into the National Airspace (NAS) and the role of autonomy in aviation. Familiarity with DoD aviation and operation in the NAS. Understanding of and experience with relevant FAA and other Federal standards and procedures.
