The Aerodynamics Group in Ridley Park is responsible for the analysis and flight testing of rotorcraft performance, the prediction and measurement of aerodynamic loads, the measurement of both interior and exterior rotorcraft noise, and subscale wind tunnel testing of rotorcraft and rotor systems. In addition to these responsibilities, the analysis and design of innovative rotorcraft configurations, airfoils, rotor blades, propeller blades, and the outer mold lines of the fuselage is anticipated.
Conduct Performance analysis of production rotorcraft as well as support the conceptual sizing of new rotorcraft.
Predict airloads using analytical tools including, but not limited to, vortex lattice and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software.
Support the acquisition and reduction of wind tunnel or flight test data. Travel is anticipated.
Support the aerodynamic design of airfoils, wings, rotor blades, propellers and the outer mold lines of new rotorcraft.
Assist and perform inspection of production aircraft for surface finish and aerodynamics smoothness compliance.
Interface and interact with aircraft user community on engineering data related to aircraft performance.
Assist and perform development of performance models and algorithms for aircraft onboard mission analysis software.
This position requires the ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance for which the U.S. Government requires U.S. Citizenship.
Basic Qualifications (Required Skills/Experience):
Basic Computing skills working with both PC and UNIX systems
Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):
Bachelors or Masters in Engineering, with Aerodynamics or Aerospace emphasis
Knowledge of aircraft or rotorcraft performance
Experience with Vortex Lattice or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Analysis
