Job Description:

The Civil Group at Leidos currently has an opening for a Cargo Integrator to work in our Webster, TX location. This position supports NASA in the Cargo Mission Contract’s Cargo Processing team by performing analytical assessments and physical processing of space flight hardware before shipment to various launch sites or hardware owners. The position includes Cargo Mission Lead (CML) roles, which are responsible for: planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources for the successful completion of a mission. The tasks of the Cargo Integrator/CML ensure that hardware meets requirements and cargo events run within scope, time, and budget constraints. The ultimate goal is successful delivery to the vehicle integrators for launch, or to the hardware owners in the case of return missions.

Cargo Integrator Responsibilities:

  • Review the CMC flight-specific schedule milestones. Identify and resolve issues or challenges to meeting milestones by communicating with the internal team.
  • Identify Points of Contact, on-dock dates, etc. for tracking hardware deliveries for missions.
  • Review and identify inaccurate or discrepant hardware data provided, and communicate with data and hardware owners to resolve discrepancies.
  • Identify off-nominal requirements, requests, and problems pertaining to hardware requirements and delivery to CMC. Utilize prior experiences, standard procedures, and basic analysis to resolve issues.
  • Communicate issues and challenges to the flight CML, and provide facts and recommendations to assist in resolution.  
  • Organize and lead the Hardware Audit, including preparation of initial Hardware Accountability Matrix Report (HAMR), distribution of meeting notice, reservation of room, capture/closure of actions, etc.
  • Manage the integrated hardware delivery schedule via database throughout the duration of the flight processing. Work with the CML, hardware providers, and NASA to identify and report delivery and/or handling issues.
  • Conduct the in-line Hardware Verification Review (HVR). Review manifested flight hardware items to ensure program requirements are met, while observing hardware handling constraints.
  • Identify physical issues with hardware items, make recommendations for resolution, and coordinate with hardware providers and requirement owners to implement resolution. Ensure issues are resolved in order to meet schedule constraints.
  • Verify accuracy of barcode and serial number data and hardware hierarchy, which feeds the on-orbit inventory tracking report. Resolve discrepancies by coordinating with data owners, both internal and external contacts in a timely manner to meet report delivery deadlines.
  • Track return hardware items (from on-orbit ISS) by developing the Return Manifest Disposition Plan (RMDP) and resolving discrepancies with data and requirements. RMDP is used as a plan for return hardware, then as documentation of actuals that returned.   
  • Conduct return hardware verification, documenting physical issues, differences from plan, and actual data such as mass, serial numbers, and barcodes.

Cargo Mission Lead Responsibilities:

  • Generate and manage CMC flight-specific schedule. Identify and resolve schedule constraints or challenges throughout mission timeline. 
  • Communicate with internal resources across various CMC teams, including: physical integration, stowage integration, safety, sustaining engineering, and software development to ensure that milestones, requirements, and product deliveries are met.
  • Identify issues and off-nominal requests pertaining to hardware requirements and delivery to CMC. Utilize prior experiences, standard procedures, and basic analysis to resolve issues. Resolution often entails communication with internal and external organizations and customers, including: CMC management, hardware providers, Visiting Vehicle Team, and NASA reps.
  • Communicate flight status as needed, including weekly Integrated Product Team meeting and bi-weekly CMC Management Board.
