• Develop all nominal and off-nominal Mission and Fault Management algorithms, including necessary algorithms that cross system or sub-system boundaries.
• Develop, analyze, model, and test algorithms for vehicle integrated events and sequences including inter-system constraints, prerequisites, event triggers and command requirements for nominal and off-nominal integrated vehicle functions.
• Using Enterprise Architect, develop and document the Mission and Fault Management (algorithm) Model that defines the Flight Computer Software (FCSW) algorithms necessary to manage the overall integrated vehicle through all phases of flight.
• Collaborate closely with other M&FM algorithm designers to ensure that the overall M&FM design is integrated and cohesive. Participate in peer reviews of M&FM algorithms. Work closely with the FCSW team to ensure that the M&FM design is captured in FCSW requirements, design, and testing.
• Provide support for State Analysis Modelling to assess the system’s desired states and state transitions, both for nominal and off-nominal sequencing, by developing a model that shows how the vehicle states and modes change throughout operational phases.
• Provide support for development of the Integrated Vehicle Failure Model (IVFM). IVFM development includes using vehicle, element, and subsystem design information, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) data, Hazards Analysis and Fault Tree data, and collaboration with the subsystem designers and experts to model vehicle architecture, sensor locations, failure modes, and failure effects.
• Identify all abort conditions and abort triggers and assesses the performance and effectiveness of proposed and approved abort triggers through analysis, including Auto-Safing analysis.
• Participation in recurring vehicle, discipline and sub-system meetings to gather technical data, perform analysis and distribute analysis results, work technical issues and collaborate with cross-program stakeholder organizations (such as Flight Software, Systems Engineering and Integration, Operations, Core Stage, Booster, Multi Purpose Crew Vehicle, Avionics, Vehicle Management, Flight Operations Directorate, Ground Systems Development Operations (GSDO) and Safety and Mission Assurance (S&MA)).
• Participation is also required in discipline, project and program level reviews as necessary, to include but not limited to presenting results, issues, reviewing documents and working and issues as they arise.
