Sr. Systems Engineer - Telecommunications Systems At Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Location: Pasadena, California

Job Description

Overview

New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That’s our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission—your opportunity—is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you’re driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you’re ready for JPL.

Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.

The Communications Architectures and Research Section in the Communications, Tracking, and Radar Division has a heritage of significant achievements in the development of new technologies for space communications and science: modulation schemes, error-correcting codes, receivers, advanced signal processing, ground-based solar system radar, atomic clocks and other quantum technologies, and radio science. We develop and analyze new deep space telecommunications and networking architectures to support long-range planning for NASA's Deep Space Network and manage spectrum allocations. We develop new radio frequency and optical communications concepts that advance the state of the art and demonstrate them for infusion into operational ground and space systems of NASA missions and for DARPA and other agencies.

Responsibilities

As a Systems Engineer with an emphasis on Telecommunications Systems, you will be a member of the Communications Architectures and Research Section and will report to the Group Supervisor of the Information Processing Group. In this position you will be responsible for leading, managing, and coordinating requirements, design, interfaces, and verification and validation (V&V) activities end-to-end system-level requirements. In addition, you will be defining the data flow that mission information travels between the spacecraft and end users; predicting interactions of the environment with space and ground elements of the mission information path; planning the end-to-end collection, transport, and delivery of science, engineering, commands, and ancillary data; and identifying the informational elements required to support product process and operations control and management. You will:
  • Develop requirements for RF narrowband and wideband communication subsystems and define interfaces requirements between ground and space assets.
  • Develop, maintain and/or evaluate telecom link budgets for all command and telemetry links in all phases of the mission.
  • Support design trades and architecture studies.
  • Evaluate and assess risk of communication architectures and communication subsystem designs in contractor studies and proposals.
  • Review and assess evidence for requirements verification at subsystem, segment and system level.
  • Support CONOPS/mission operations planning and development.
  • Participate in multidisciplinary and multi-organizational working groups across government & non-government agencies and contractors in order to plan and execute program activities.

Qualifications

  • AN ACTIVE TS/SCI SECURITY CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED FOR THIS POSITION

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Physics, or related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 9 years of related experience; Master’s degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 7 years of related experience; or PhD in similar disciplines with a minimum of 5 years related experience.
  • Wide-ranging and advanced knowledge in one or more of the following areas: systems engineering of space and ground networks, space mission information systems, spacecraft communication systems, aerospace engineering, and project systems engineering.
  • Experience in all phases of the design, development, system integration, test and operation of spacecraft telecommunication subsystem including delivery of flight hardware.
  • Experience in defining, designing and implementing communication subsystems for spacecraft.
  • Experience with analysis, modeling and simulating all communications and tracking subsystems and algorithms for point-to-point links, communication networks, and command and control systems, including RF/optical front-ends, signal coding and modulation, communications protocols, data compression, encryption methods and multiple access schemes.
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills.
  • Strong interpersonal skills with demonstrated effectiveness in a team environment.
  • Ability to work independently under a set schedule.
  • Proven ability to establish task priorities and manage change as the project/task evolves in reaction to new requirements.
