Job ID:11609
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.
Responsibilities
The JPL Communications, Tracking and Radar Division performs scientific investigations, advanced technology research, engineering developments and system implementations encompassing space telecommunications, tracking and active remote sensing using electromagnetic waves.
Within the Communications, Tracking and Radar Division, the Flight Communications Section engineers cost-effective space borne communications systems, services and products including direct-to-Earth (DTE) and proximity relay links for NASA/JPL and non-NASA missions; developing, delivering and supporting
software-defined radios (SDRs), spacecraft and airborne antennas, RF power amplifiers, and related products for RF system applications. This section also specializes in optical communications, including use of high-power lasers, sensitive single-photon detectors and actuator-sensor systems for accurate laser
beam pointing, in addition to developing telecom concepts and demonstrating them for infusion into operational ground and space systems of NASA missions, for DARPA, and other agencies.
Responsibilities may include but are not limited to:
Design and develope various RF and microwave assemblies including frequency converters, synthesizers, power and low-noise amplifiers by performing parts assessment and procurement, board design, build and test, develop requirements and interface definitions.
Support RF and Power development for telecom, radar and instrument flight subsystems during all phases of a flight project.
Plan board and box level build processes and test, including, generating parts lists and drawings, maintaining hardware build books and recording traceability details, drafting procedures using the IBAT and PBAT systems, participate in critical design reviews, manufacturing and test readiness reviews, and delivery reviews.
Work with subsystem or payload system engineers and mission assurance to develop adequate V&V plans.
Work on change requests, waiver efforts, and support Problem Failure Report (PFR) investigations.
Work with mechanical, thermal, radiation, packaging, S/C power, EMI/EMC engineers and others to ensure RF board and unit compatibility with defined spacecraft interfaces, environments and limitations.
Manage flight unit build contingency, margins, and allocations and negotiate changes with the project.
Participate in the development or presentation material and actual presentation for project review involving the RF and power boards and units.
Support internal table-top peer reviews, manufacturing and test readiness reviews (MRRs and TRRs), Preliminary and Critical Design Reviews (PDRs and CDRs), Hardware Readiness and Criticality Review (HRCR), and Certificate of Flight Readiness (CoFR) reviews.
Support the flight telecom product development manager in managing risks, performance budgets, trade studies, design integration, requirements allocations, interface definition/verification, and verification & validation planning and execution for flight deliveries.
Assist in capture and documentation of nominal, off-nominal and idiosyncratic flight unit modes and corresponding telemetry that are passed forward to the spacecraft operations development team.
Support the research and development of new flight RF and power supply technologies.
Applies knowledge of practices and standards to RF systems and assemblies requirements definition.
Develop unique methods and tools for the design of RF components and circuits.
Partners with other engineers and management to integrate components into highly complex systems.
Designs and develops RF components, subsystems and systems that represent significant breakthroughs in the discipline.
Qualifications
Must be currently enrolled at an accredited college or university pursing a Master's, or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or related discipline
Must be available to work full-time (40 hrs/wk) for 8 to 12 weeks during the Summer
Must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0
Experience with test equipment such as network analyzers and spectrum analyzers are necessary
Experience with microwave/RF CAD software such as ADS/AWR, HFSS/CST/SONNET are desired.
Ability to do some engineer design work
Broad knowledge in one or more of the following related fields: Controls, Power Systems, Systems Engineering, Integration and Test, Electrical Engineering
Spacecraft power systems engineering experience and/or training
Strong written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work in a team environment
