Jobs: Aerospace Engineer- 6DOF Simulations, Leidos (USA)

The Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group (SRG) of Leidos has a career opportunity for an Engineer to create, modify and implement 6DOF Simulations.

Job  Description

Engineer will be responsible for creation, modification, and/or implementation of six Degree Of Freedom (6DOF) simulations used to analyze beyond-Earth-orbit satellite missions.  Engineer will work with a team to develop the Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) algorithms needed for rendezvous with a near Earth asteroid.  The task(s) may involve creating, modifying, and/or implementing physics-based models necessary for the analysis of such missions.  This includes plant/environment models (such as high fidelity gravity, solar pressure, etc.), sensor models, actuator models, and flex-body dynamics.  Engineer will present results from analyses to a larger group as required.  Engineer will be working as a key member of a small team challenged with an aggressive development schedule.


Bachelor’s degree in an engineering or equivalent discipline and 6 – 10 years of related experience.  Position also requires:
