Frequent collaboration with Vita Design team on innovations, ideation sessions, design reviews, and testing protocols
Designs structural components, robust mechanical enclosures, and mechanisms for airborne systems
Performs structural, thermal, and dynamic simulations and analysis on proposed designs
Develops mechanical systems by studying requirements; researching and testing manufacturing and assembly methods and materials.
Assures product quality by designing testing methods; testing finished products and system capabilities.
Maintaining PDM and PLM toolsets throughout the development and global deployment of Vita solutions
A minimum of four (4) years of relevant mechanical engineering experience
Extensive knowledge of aerospace/mechanical design and manufacturing principles and techniques
Extensive detailed design and manufacturing experience
Experience designing composite parts for use in extreme environments
Hands on experience developing, building, and testing mechanical hardware
Rapid prototyping experience utilizing 3D printing and other techniques
Experience working on R&D type projects, military projects, and aerospace hardware
Experience drafting mechanical drawings, GD&T experience is a plus
Extensive CAD modeling experience (ideally SolidWorks)
Experience in deployment and utilization of PDM & PLM toolsets
Experience utilizing MATLAB or other numerical modeling platforms to analyze and verify proposed designs
General knowledge of dynamic modeling, control systems, and electro mechanical systems
All-around problem-solving aptitude
Technology supporting Helicopter Search and Rescue missions has remained stagnant over the past 74 years. During hoist rescue missions, the rescuer, swimmer, or litter often undergoes hazardous motion due to the movement of the helicopter above, and other variables; such as weather and rotor wash. Unfortunately, this chaotic motion results in injuries and deaths to our warfighters, and patients in need. Vita Inclinata Technologies is developing next generation rescue solutions to autonomously stabilize hoisting operations for the DoD and commercial marketplaces.
