Job location: camden, nj / remote
The l3harris integrated mission systems (ims) segment is a recognized leader in sea, undersea, air, land and space products and systems development and integrationIms offers challenging and rewarding assignments across a broad spectrum of products and systemsThe ims segment mechanical structural engineer reports to the srManager of mechanical engineering, in support of the mechanical engineering discipline functional plans and initiatives and will also provide direct project contributions at the sector/division/site level.
As a senior member of the engineering team, the mechanical structural engineer works collaboratively with other members of the engineering team to ensure products and systems meet structural substantiation requirements including shock, vibration, fatigue damage tolerance and life assurance while ensuring cost and schedule objectives are achievedThis position will require extended periods of direct support on proposals and projects within the divisions to achieve these objectives.
Provide upfront and direct hands-on support starting with the bid/proposal efforts on key pursuits through development and deployment efforts across the segment.
Includes deployment to sites to assist in the resolution of structural related issues as required
Provide structural analysis subject matter expert oversight for projects and products to ensure designs follow specifications and synergistically leverage exiting designs across the segment to reduce development efforts.
Able to apply the principles of structural mechanics to predict internal stresses and structural instabilitiesDetermine/predict failure and structural instabilities for structures giving due consideration to its material properties and applicable failure theoriesAssess/predict the affects of shock and vibration on structural components and assembliesAssess structural components for life assurance considerations, including fatigue and damage tolerance.
Assist in the l3harris digital transformation including discipline specific tool research, evaluation and deployment
