Lockheed Martin Guidance, Navigation and Control Engineer / Algorithmist / Orlando, FL in Orlando, Florida
Mid Level Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) engineer position. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, developing and analyzing GNC/Tracking/GPS algorithms and aerodynamic models using various simulations, developing and testing 6-DoF simulation models and simulation builds, performing flight software verification and hardware integration tests in the simulation and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) lab, HWIL integration and maintenance. Must have C/C++, FORTRAN, MATLAB programming experience. Integration and Test, Embedded Software, RF/EO Modeling, Mission Planning, Survivability, ADA Programming experience a plus.
A Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) engineer assures that a platform is capable of finding its way to an intended destination and delivering its payload optimally. This is accomplished, in part, by performing Missile 6DOF simulation analysis and Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) simulation analysis. Inclusive in this process is the development and analysis of guidance, navigation and autopilot algorithms. In addition, development of simulation models and performing hardware integration is required. Performance verification and troubleshooting is also required. Target tracking is an integral part of guidance and fire control. The engineer will be responsible for designing target tracking systems which generally include target state estimation and target/detection association and assignment which is particularly challenging in surveillance systems.
Basic Qualifications Must have experience with feedback control system design and analysis and knowledge of basic aerodynamic principles. Strong math skills are required in the areas of linear algebra, matrix math, statistics, and trigonometry and coordinate transformation. The candidate must have experience with state estimation filters such as KALMAN, Extended KALMAN filter (EKF) and multiple model adaptive estimation. Experience in terrestrial navigation and navigation state error estimation is also required. Must be experienced in MATLAB and C/C++ programming.
Candidate must have at a minimum an interim secret clearance to be considered qualified for this position.
Desired skills Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) simulation experience is desired. Flight software integration and verification experience is also a plus. Experience with Embedded Software, RF/EO knowledge, and experience programming in FORTRAN is also a plus.
