GNC Systems Analyst
Draper Labs - Cambridge, MA
12+ month contract
The work will be focused on analyzing and designing guidance, navigation, and control (GN&C) algorithms and flight software.
The analysis will include assessment of control, navigation, and guidance system performance, verification of algorithms and algorithm requirements, and analysis of flight dynamics and trajectory dispersions.
Time domain simulations, covariance-based methods, and Monte Carlo dispersed analysis will be used to assess and tune system performance and to document analysis results.
Background in dynamics and linear analysis of aircraft, spacecraft, and missile closed loop performance (inner and outer loop)
Familiarity with MATLAB and Simulink
Knowledge of GN&C algorithm techniques and simulation modeling techniques
Education: Minimum of Bachelors Degree
