Specific responsibilities within MSA include, but are not limited to, development of high fidelity performance simulations that include multiple sensor channels, scene generation capability, control hardware, physical environment, embedded software, and system performance analysis including pre-flight prediction, post flight matching, and verification and validation. Note: This position can be a Systems Engineer I or a Systems Engineer II based upon the applicant’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position. Job Description and Key Tasks: The Junior Modeling and Simulation Engineer will create high fidelity simulations and models for missile system design, performance assessment, and flight test support. The Junior Simulation Engineer is responsible for the development and implementation of modeling solutions, and subsequently conducts trade studies and analysis of system/subsystem performance. The individual is expected to work in a team environment, receiving inputs from his/her lead and providing guidance and/or direction to other team members. Junior Simulation Engineers will collaborate with Guidance, Navigation & Control (GNC), signal processing, and performance analysis personnel to perform simulation activities according to the program schedule. The Junior Simulation Engineer will be expected to work on diverse projects and independently determine and develop approaches and solutions. The individual will be required to provide development support throughout product lifecycle, from initial concept to a fielded product. Responsibilities include providing technical support for the simulation products of a specific program, and assisting Senior Modeling Engineers in the preparation of detailed plans (including task objective, expected output, budget requirements and schedule for projects), and may interact with government counterpart as an authority on simulation products.
