Astrodynamic Standards and Orbital Analyst
DSoft Technology is searching for a full time Astrodynamic Standards and Orbital Analyst to perform Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A), studies, and research of space objects and various sensor capabilities using computerized tools. Candidate must have at least a B.S. or M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Physics or related field, and demonstrate successful experience working with MS&A in the air and space domain. Solid communications and presentation skills is a must. Must have a current DoD security clearance, or be clearable. Position is in Colorado Springs, CO.
- Experience with mathematical modeling of complex systems (particularly as related to astrodynamics, orbital mechanics including classical orbital elements)required.
- Experience with specific astrodynamics tasks such as orbit determination, trajectory design and maneuver planning, attitude determination and control, or conjunction assessment and collision avoidance.
- Experience with space-related systems, including the sensors and networks used to detect, track, and characterize objects in space, the satellites that provide space-based services, and the infrastructure used to control and operate these satellites.
- Experience with satellite or spacecraft operations.
- Experience with trajectory maneuver design optimization.
- Experience with space mission concept studies or spacecraft system engineering is a plus.
- Proficient in software coding skills using Python required, experience with Fortran, MATLAB, C/C# and .NET, Java, mySQL, PHP, or other coding languages is a plus.
- Experience using astrodynamics modeling tools including COTS (STK, ODTK, FreeFlyer), GOTS (GMAT, Air Force Space Command Astrodynamic Standards), open source (Orekit).
- Experience with working with a software development team.
- Competence in scientific writing and/or development and presentation of technical materials.
- Self-starter who can envision good, solid solutions and drive them through to completion.
- B.S. or M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Physics or related fieldrequired.
- Active security clearance desired but not necessary but there should be no barriers for being able to get a DoD security clearance.
