MILLENNIUM is seeking Software Systems Engineers on the OMES II contract in support of the Restore-L program in the Satellite Servicing Projects Division (SSPD) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This position is located in Greenbelt, MD.
The Restore-L mission is a Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Satellite Servicing Project Division (SSPD) managed mission. Restore-L is a robotic servicing mission designed to refuel a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite. It contains 3 elements: the Flight Element comprised of the Restore-L Servicing Vehicle (RSV) and development testbeds, the Ground Element comprised of the systems required to conduct RSV operations and the supporting networks and facilities, and the Launch Element comprised of the Launch Vehicle and supporting facilities and services. The SSPD is responsible for the design, engineering, development, test and operations of the Restore-L Mission through an integrated team at GSFC. The Servicing Payload design, development and RSV integration will be conducted at GSFC. Mission operations will be conducted by a Mission Operations Engineering Team comprised of ground system engineers and flight engineers from a Restore Mission Operations Center (RMOC) at GSFC.
The engineer will provide software systems support for the Restore-L Ground Element (RGE) Development team. The RGE Development team is responsible for the acquisition and oversight of all development associated with the Ground System (GS). As the RGE is an in-house build, the system development teams will deliver their systems (Mission Control System, Guidance & Navigation Control, Robot Ground System) to the RGE Development team for integration into the MOC and RoboMOC environments. This position is primarily a systems role (requirements definition and analysis, system integration, documentation, etc.) and one role that is primarily a software development role with some systems engineering responsibilities. For both roles, it is important that the candidate have knowledge of both software development and systems engineering. The candidate will support legacy products and development of new designs.
