AEROSPACE ENGINEER (Structural Analysis)
ERC is a servant-leader oriented company with approximately 1,800 employees and multiple contracts across the US. We believe that our culture has a direct influence on the job satisfaction of our employees and is reflected in the outstanding quality of service received by our customers.
The Aerospace Engineer shall support the Air Force SEEK EAGLE Office (AFSEO) Modeling, Analysis, and Tools Support (SEMATS) contract at Eglin Air Force Base. The work performed furthers the USAF SEEK EAGLE aircraft/store compatibility effort, as well as broader USAF goals.
An engineer is being sought to perform structural analysis of sophisticated wind tunnel systems: reconfigurable aircraft models with complex components; innovative support mechanisms compatible with a wide range of inventory and development weapon models; and components constructed using multiple advanced manufacturing processes.
The engineer will participate in a working environment focused on the evaluation of aircraft compatibility with a wide variety of external and internal stores necessary to conduct the range of USAF operational and test missions.
What you’ll do all day:
The Aerospace Engineer will work in an Integrated Test & Evaluation (IT&E) environment. Duties include the following broad-ranging responsibilities in support of store separation discipline tasks:
Support the aircraft/store certification process
Perform sophisticated structural analysis tasks, in conjunction with aerodynamic analysis
Design/direct ground tests, wind tunnel tests, and flight tests
Apply modeling and simulation tools to complex, challenging, and unprecedented aerodynamic configurations
Devise engineering software scripts and programs for specific program engineering purposes; software development could be included in the task portfolio
Professionally document certification artifacts, engineering documentation (e.g. test plans, analysis results), and formal presentations
Works as a member of a discipline team in a dynamic multi-tasking environment.
