Job Description:

Peraton has an opening for a Spacecraft Systems Engineer at the White Sands Complex in Las Cruces, NM. The Spacecraft Systems Engineer will join a team of engineers 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 late 2020, 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. What you’ll do… Perform daily monitoring and trending of spacecraft state-of-health data. Develop procedures for performing spacecraft activities, including on-orbit acceptance testing, battery management, station-keeping maneuvers, and momentum unloads. Lead spacecraft activities as a Test Conductor, providing engineering guidance to the Satellite Controllers. Perform payload performance tests to verify the payload is meeting required specifications. Analyze and identify spacecraft anomaly root causes, then plan and execute recovery actions. As experience is gained, provide on-the-job training to peers. Occasional work during nights or weekends is required when executing activities or anomaly recoveries. Other duties as assigned. You’d be a great fit if you have… A Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field and 5+ years of relative experience. 1+ years of experience in digital signal processing. The ability to obtain and maintain a secret security clearance. It’d be even better if you have… Active Secret security clearance. MS degree in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field. Proficiency with Systems Tool Kit, FreeFlyer, MATLAB, Python, or LabVIEW. Previous spacecraft operations, design, or 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 TDRS 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 Tuition assistance, financing, and refinancing Paid maternity and paternity leave Company-paid infertility treatments Cross-training and professional development opportunities The ability to influence major initiatives SECURITY CLEARANCE: This position requires the candidate to be able to obtain a secret security clearance. In order to obtain a clearance, you need to be a US Citizen and show proof of citizenship. We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
