This position will work closely with the Engineering Teams and provide inputs to various designs, as well as produce documentation consistent with project phases to include Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR) and Critical Design Reviews (CDR). This position will be responsible for performing RM&D related analyses and developing RM&D models and reports for the purpose of estimating and predicting system/subsystem failure rates and performance characteristics. This position will require that the selected candidate possess a strong technical background with varied engineering experiences.

Additional duties/responsibilities will include:

- Developing RM&D prediction models and reports using Systems Engineering approved methodologies.

- Reviewing requirements, specifications, technical documentation, and system/subsystem level designs and performance reports, as well as all changes to those documents for potential impacts to RM&D predictability models and reports. The results of all analyses will be documented in technical reports.

- Preparing and delivering presentations and participating in various Systems Engineering product reviews to include requirements development for the purpose of identifying potential impacts to system components from an RM&D perspective.

- Working closely with the Hardware and Software Engineering Teams and the Integration & Verification Team to ensure that all potential impacts to the reliability, maintainability and dependability of system components are identified and mitigated/eliminated.

- Supporting design reviews as required and presenting reliability impacts.

- Performing RM&D system/subsystem level severity/consequence assessments associated with test trends and failures.

- Developing, coordinating and conducting technical reliability studies and evaluations of engineering design concepts to include Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).

-Developing test plans, conducting Test Readiness Reviews (TRRs) and performing Reliability testing as required.

- Providing support and/or participating in Failure Review Boards (FRBs) and failure investigation teams.

- Experience in identifying Failure Review and Corrective Action System (FRACAS) trends to identify and prioritize failure modes to investigate for corrective actions.

- Creating, updating and maintaining all required RM&D products to ensure 100% success with all events tied to critical program milestones such as PDR and CDR.

The selected candidate will spend a majority of their time working with various engineering teams, performing analyses, developing models and writing reports. The candidate should be self-motivated with the ability to multi-task as needed, and be able to work in a diverse team environment comprised of multiple engineering skill sets.
