Spacex Jobs – GNC Satellite Attitude Determination

Website SpaceX

Job Description:

SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Various first principles derived analyses.
  • Analyze platform stability to ensure low jitter of line-of-sight instruments.
  • Develop high fidelity 6 degree of freedom single and multi-vehicle simulation using C++.
  • ADCS hardware performance specification including reaction wheel and torque rod sizing, sensor noise and performance characteristics, redundancy and fault management.
  • Implement closed loop pointing, orbit raising, and station keeping algorithms.
  • Design and analysis of satellite attitude determination and control systems.

Job Requirements:

  • Must be willing to travel.
  • Must be willing to work extended hours and weekends as needed.

Qualification & Experience:

  • Low thrust trajectory optimization for orbital maneuvering.
  • Demonstrated project or professional experience in either satellite attitude determination and control or orbit raising and station keeping.
  • Passion for advancing the commercial space industry.
  • Strong understanding of classical dynamics, orbital mechanics, modeling and simulation, and software development.
  • Master’s degree or PhD in physics or an engineering discipline.
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, autonomously driven, and demanding start-up atmosphere.
  • Cradle to grave development of three axis stabilized spacecraft incorporating momentum, magnetic, and propulsive control.
  • Capable of identifying and solving complex problems with little to no supervision or direction.
  • Experience with flexible body control, orbital maneuvering, filtering, fault management, software development, and navigation filtering.
  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal.
