Focuses on the operational application of systems engineering, performing functions such as developing, maintaining, and utilizing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) tools to conduct requirement and risk management, verification and validation, and logistics and deployment activities as well as ensuring appropriate documentation is created and maintained over the full product lifecycle. Supports the tracking of system development, ensuring that all technical areas are moving according to a predetermined schedule and in an integrated development process. Works issues personally or flags areas where additional technical expertise or program leadership is needed. Typically verifies requirements that don't require deep engineering multidisciplinary knowledge, such as dimensions, mass properties, or input and output signal voltage and timing. Ensures that all requirements are addressed, verifies that the system design satisfies all requirements, and collects evidentiary packages to document completion for the customer.
Employs a structured engineering approach that models the interactions between all components and ensures integration. Documents and tracks component and system-level performance requirements and develops acceptance criteria for the subsystems and system. Documents and tracks project risks and interfaces with stakeholders to develop mitigation and contingency plans. Evaluates competing characteristics between system elements and determines the most effective, integrated system solution. Evaluates, tests, and performs high-level analysis of system functionality and subsystem contribution to system function, ensuring that system performance requirements and acceptance criteria are met. Interfaces with the customer and those responsible for developing, testing, and implementing the system and its elements to ensure that customer expectations are met. Develops logistic and deployment plans and prepares required training resources.
Working with a diverse team of engineers and technologist staff, you will contribute to civil engineering (CE)-related design and implementation efforts supporting complex perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDAS) that protect high consequence nuclear assets at DOE and DOD sites. You will be leveraging your experience researching, analyzing, modeling, designing, planning, and testing civil, structural, and infrastructure systems. You will be utilizing and integrating advanced design concepts relating to transportation, paving, traffic control, parking, gates, fences, drainage, soils, water supply, storm water conveyance, utilities, communication systems, site development, landscape, structures, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), seismic, construction, and construction management.
You will be developing or reviewing structural engineering calculations, drawings, and specifications for features like security building structures, security vehicle barriers, site grading, fencing, AND generating construction documents (design drawings, specifications). You will be working in close coordination with other engineering disciplines like electrical, mechanical, and multiple pre-engineered specialty security system components. Typically, the level of detail for construction documentation is commensurate with the level of implementation risk. These documents will be used jointly by Sandia and subcontractor personnel to repair, replace, or to install new physical security components. You will also work closely with CAD technologists and other engineering disciplines with the development of a construction/implementation document process that assures a consistent approach for current and future projects.
