Job Description:

OverviewPeraton has an opening for a Field Service Engineer/Spacecraft Specialist at the White Sands Complex in Las Cruces, NM. The Spacecraft Operator will join a flight engineering team dedicated to operating and maintaining the health and safety of the STPSat-6 spacecraft.

Peraton is the prime contractor for NASA at the White Sands Complex (WSC) near Las Cruces, New Mexico. Operating here are two functionally identical satellite ground terminals: The White Sands Ground Terminal, and the Second TDRSS Ground Terminal. These ground terminals ensure uninterrupted communications between various ground stations, NASA's orbiting fleet of Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS), customer spacecraft (satellites), and the computer systems that support such spacecraft. WSC serves as an interface for distributing satellite data to control centers and scientists who then use the daily influx of data to expand our ever-growing knowledge of the Earth and the universe. In early 2021, an additional mission will be added to the WSC operations infrastructure with the launch of STPSat-6. Preparations for the launch and transition to operations are currently underway.ResponsibilitiesWhat you'll do---

        • An active Secret/Interim Secret clearance.
        • BS degree in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field.
        • Previous spacecraft test experience.
        • Experience with spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, power sensors, and/or other RF equipment.
        • Demonstrated written and oral communication skills, including ability to communicate effectively with peers and management.
        • Experience with MS Office Suite (Excel, Word, PowerPoint).

          What you'll get---

          • An immediately-vested 401(K) with employer matching
          • Rapid PTO accrual schedule with floating holidays
          • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
