Job Description

The Avionics Systems Safety Engineer will be responsible for the conduction of systems safety assessments for all Programs and Projects within the Science & Space Systems Assurance Branch of the Mission Systems Assurance & Technical Support Department of the Marshall Spaceflight Center (MSFC) Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) Directorate. Core responsibilities include contributing to the design and development of aerospace vehicle/payload avionic systems and processes from a safety perspective, documenting various system safety analyses, and assisting with safety-related requirements management.

Selected candidate will be expected to lead the avionics safety assessment effort and take ownership for the development of artifacts such as Preliminary Hazard Lists (PHL), Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Subsystem Hazard Analysis (SSHA), System Hazard Analysis (SHA), Operating and Support Hazard Analysis (O&SHA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Event Tree Analysis (ETA), Functional Hazard Analysis (FHA), and other items throughout the entire Program/Project Lifecycle, working closely with other discipline experts as necessary to document analysis results and drive necessary design changes.

Job Description: (Description of actual job functions the employee will be required to perform):

Assist avionics design engineers in development of spacecraft/payload avionic instrumentation compliant with Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) requirements. Apply system safety assessment techniques in the design of safety-critical products.
Conduct research to address problems associated with flight safety systems and electronic navigation systems.
Ensure new systems (and those that have been repaired) meet requirements mandated by NASA and specifications set by manufacturers.
Participate in designing, testing and calibration of avionic systems.
Provide technical and programmatic oversight of spacecraft electronics/avionics subsystem. This includes C&DH and ADCS electronics, power system electronics and GPS receivers.
Perform advanced spacecraft electronics/avionics system technology assessment and architecture definition.
Define spacecraft electronics/avionics requirements and test and verification methodologies.
Review and prepare engineering and system safety analysis, technical reports, engineering change proposals, and other documentation.
Prepare and maintain System Safety Analysis Reports (including Hazard Reports) by identifying and evaluating potential avionics hazards with probability and severity.
Coordinate with vendor engineering, management and NASA Customer to exchange technical data, to develop safety analysis.
Review component Interface Design Document and Interface Control Documents to ensure completeness of safety analysis.
Perform system-level safety analysis and developed approaches for risk mitigation.
Lead resolution of hardware anomalies at the system level and determine root cause and corrective action.
Ensure safety engineering support for program/project hardware/software design milestone reviews through all phases of development (from concept through manufacturing to final acceptance) to ensure design compliance with safety requirements.
Evaluate and provide recommendations for acceptance of Non-compliance Reports, and Requests for Waiver/Deviations.
Track and/or monitor the implementation and validation of hazard controls in accordance with approved hazard reports and verification plans.
Develop system safety test and test procedures for safety requirements.
Perform review and approval of test procedures and fabrication process plans.
