Lockheed Martin Aerodynamics Engineer, Orlando FL in Orlando, Florida
Description: An Aerodynamics Engineer is needed to support weapon system platform aerodynamic configuration and performance analysis. In addition, the Aerodynamics Lead Engineer support wind tunnel test planning/execution/reporting. This includes, but is not limited to, Wind Tunnel coordination, Wind Tunnel Model manufacturing oversight, incorporation of required algorithms into Wind Tunnel facility, Wind Tunnel Test Execution, and subsequent analysis of Wind Tunnel data supporting test activities.
The Aerodynamics Engineer will be an integral part of the combined Aerodynamic and GNC team performing simulation and modeling of missile 6DOF Integrated Flight Simulation (IFS). This activity includes generation of aerodynamics models and support for the maturation of GNC algorithms.
Participation in system performance assessments, trade studies, and test data analyses related to optimal IFS Implementation of Guidance, Navigation, and Autopilot on-board algorithms may be required.
Travel is required to support customer coordination and qualification test efforts.
Candidate must demonstrate the ability to perform the following Aerodynamicist Engineering assignments:
Perform aerodynamic configuration and performance analysis using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Performs wind tunnel test planning, coordination, execution, analyses, and reporting.
Perform Wind Tunnel Model manufacturing oversight and incorporation of required algorithms into Wind Tunnel facility.
Perform onsite Wind Tunnel Test Execution, and subsequent analysis of Wind Tunnel data.
Serve as member of the Aerodynamic/GNC team performing simulation of missile 6DOF Integrated Flight Simulation (IFS).
Generate aerodynamics models and support for the maturation of GNC algorithms.
Participate in system performance assessments related to optimal IFS Implementation of GNC on-board algorithms.
Ability to obtain an interim security clearance and considered a US Citizen.
Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) and NASTRAN experience is highly desired.
