    Responsibilities

    • Duties described below are at the full-performance level. Duties assigned at a lower grade level will be of more limited scope, performed with less independence and limited complexity; duties will be commensurate with the grade of selected employee.
    • Conduct analysis, design, modeling, and simulation of communications components (e.g., antennas, RF circuits), subsystems (e.g., frequency converters, RF front ends, signal processing), and full systems/architectures using computer modeling software
    • Identify, design, develop, and validate new architecture, components, systems, and sub-systems for integration into aeronautics and space applications. Validation can include analytical, test, and/or measurement approaches
    • Develop prototype space and aeronautical system/architecture emulations and demonstrations in a laboratory or relevant environment
    • Develop and disseminate new knowledge through research and development in areas of satellite communications and systems, RF and optical communication systems, measurement techniques, link analysis, and digital modulation and coding
    • Document methods, results, and recommendations through internal and external reports, position papers, presentations, and publications. Report on accomplishments in the form of formal reviews, presentations, and hardware or software deliverables
    • Define concepts, develop, and assess requirements for future space exploration (e.g., Earth, Lunar and Mars) and new aeronautical systems within the National Airspace System (e.g. unpiloted autonomous air vehicles)
    • Work independently and in teams to solve technical problems. May lead research or development task areas in support of larger projects
    • Develop new analytical capability and tools, technology products, subsystems, and systems for space and aeronautical applications
