Join us in our fast-paced support to the Space Development Agency (SDA)! - Since SDA's standup just 3 years ago, it has become known as the Department of Defense's "constructive disruptor". - SDA is achieving space acquisitions at a pace never seen within the government. - The SDA has awarded 7 contracts over the last year to acquire approximately 150 satellites and its associated integration/ground system as part of Tranche 1. The satellites include a mix of communications (Transport Layer) and IR tracking (Tracking Layer) satellites. - The ground system includes two operations centers and several ground entry points across the US and abroad.
Now, the SDA is beginning to plan for Tranche 2. SDA will develop requirements for these new satellite acquisitions which will include similar capabilities as Tranche 1 and likely expand to consider additional capabilities.
SDA is building its technical team to execute Tranche 2.
We have an immediate opening for mid to senior level satellite systems engineer who has knowledge of both satellites and their interface to ground systems. The ideal candidate will have an understanding of the entire satellite acquisition process through requirements development, source selection, design, test, launch, LEOPs and operations and shepherd the acquisition of these new Tranche 2 satellites.
