The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to combine your technical skills with big picture thinking to make an impact in the world?  You understand your customer’s environment and how to develop the right systems for their mission. Your ability to translate real-world needs into technical specifications makes you an integral part of delivering a customer focused engineering solution.

As a systems engineer on our team, you have the chance to shape the Global Positioning System (GPS), a system used by over a billion people worldwide, by leading systems engineering, integration, test, and qualification activities for GPS satellites. Your customer will trust you to not only design and develop these systems, but also evolve them with advanced technology solutions. On our team, you’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like payload and spacecraft system and subsystem design, integration, and test. Grow your skills by merging unit, component, subsystem and element knowledge with GPS specific subsystems -- telemetry, tracking, and commanding (TT&C), network communication, propulsion, attitude control (ACS), electrical power (EPS), structures, thermal control (TCS), and navigation to create engineering analyses, technical specifications, system designs, and design review reports. Join our team and create the future of GPS.
