Are you ready for your next challenge?
The QRC AISR Group at Leidos currently has an opening for a Systems Engineer to work in our Bridgewater, VA office. This is an exciting opportunity to use your experience helping the Leidos mission. In this mission, we provide multi-purpose aerial platforms for today’s warfighter.
THE CHALLENGE (primary responsibilities)
Document, decompose, and derive requirements along with verification and validation (V&V) methods (including performance metrics) to ensure system performance and safety is achieved throughout the entire project lifecycle, from conception to decommission.
Work with functional teams (e.g. Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Integration Technicians, Pilots, Mission Operators/Analysts, etc.) to develop and manage system architecture based on the defined requirements and V&V methods, including performing trade studies and technical assessments.
Perform and manage defined V&V methodology throughout the project, by hosting/attending technical reviews (e.g. System Requirements Review, Preliminary Design Review, etc.), reviewing technical documents (e.g. drawings, plans, reports, etc.), and managing the technical data package along with Project Engineering/Management staff for completeness/cohesiveness using Requirements Verification Traceability (RVTM) methodologies.
Manage technical risks and mitigations via a Hazard Tracking System (HTS) based on industry and applicable certification standards, primarily related to airworthiness and flight safety.
Collaborate with Project Engineering/Management staff in regards to schedule, budget, resource, and configuration management.
Support the development and maintenance of engineering processes, including the management of process metrics and support in quality audits.
Perform and/or facilitate aircraft-level and system-level performance analyses and simulations
