Job Description

This is a technical experienced position ideally located out of our Platforms & Services, Minneapolis, MN facility but would consider BAE sites in either Phoenix, AZ or Huntsville, AL. This is a technical leadership position performing complex guidance and control design and analysis for precision guided munition systems.  The Guidance, Navigation and Control Group is responsible for all requirements, trade studies, algorithm designs and performance analyses required to develop autonomous products that navigate and guide successfully.   Their scope includes aerodynamic analysis and model development, flight control system design and analysis, - actuation system design and analysis, strap down and GPS aided navigation system design and analysis, midcourse and terminal guidance design optimization as well as system performance analysis and flight test verification. It is imperative that the candidate have strong people management skills. The concentration of technical work will be in the autopilot and guidance areas.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Manage a group of GNC Engineers and associated projects
  • GNC System design, analysis, modeling, and simulation
  • Develop autopilot control laws (modern and classical) that reduce sensitivities to aerodynamic and structural interaction uncertainties
  • Develop guidance algorithms that optimize midcourse and terminal trajectories for both fixed and highly maneuverable advanced tactical targets.
  • Apply knowledge of guidance, navigation, and control theory to develop optimum trajectory guidance laws subject to seeker system and airframe constraints
  • Conduct flight system performance analysis including nonlinear modeling, digital control, and system effectiveness analysis
  • Apply digital signal processing techniques and navigation system error analysis to verify sensor and filter performance
  • Perform post flight reconstruction and analysis to verify system flight test performance and validate flight simulation models
  • Develop, modify, and maintain
    • software tools to include evaluation under nominal, off-nominal, and Monte Carlo flight modes
    • GPS and telemetry processing tools for the reduction and analysis of flight test to determine Best Estimate of Trajectory
  • Prepare presentations, reports, research, and other contract deliverables related to designs, analyses, and tests performed
