• This lead is responsible for supporting systems engineering in the verification planning and compatibility assessment execution on the COLUMBIA and Dreadnought Platforms for LAD related risks.

• The leader will work with the Flight Science Engineering (FSE) Associate Manager to define and obtain the necessary data to refine the flight sciences models to demonstrate compatibility and show compliance to the ORP and UKS Platforms.

• The lead will provide technical expertise for program problem resolution, as relates to CMC special projects (e.g. XPR) and will ensure that best practices and LAD tools are applied.

• The lead will interface with and represent LAD work to LM Senior Management and Strategic Systems Programs Navy customers.

• The lead will require the ability to effectively work with teams across multiple sites and interface with several outside organizations.

• Performs dynamic analyses on missile and spacecraft flight hardware.
