The Electronic Warfare Division has an opening for a Mechatronics Engineer.
Leidos is looking for early career level engineers with a Mechatronics background to support our growing work in the Eglin office. This is a technical engineering position to develop a 4-DOF robot arm which mimics an advanced missile system, and further support the design of high speed missile systems. This is an opportunity to design, assemble, write control software, demonstrate performance, and perform Hardware In the Loop (HWIL) test and evaluation. Work directly with the organizations developing the most advanced weapons systems in the world in the high profile area of hypersonic and advanced weapons systems.
Apply CAD and mechanical engineering skills to design a system from the ground up. Perform assembly and checkout and use Labview to demonstrate functionality of robot arm. Incorporate open and closed loop control algorithms developed by the team to test their functionality. Test full up system against actual pilots to see how well system performs. Use your engineering knowledge to improve the design of these new weapons systems as they are being matured.
Recent and relevant experience with one of the following disciplines is required:
- Mechatronics - the design and operation of servo motor driven articulated systems
- Robotics - the operation of robotic systems including the development of control algorithms
- Labview - strong skills in developing object oriented code in the Labview environment to control systems and to acquire data
- HWIL testing - prior experience in proving out control software using HWIL testing
BS degree and 2 - 4 years of prior relevant experience or Masters with less than 2 years of prior relevant experience.
Must be a US Citizen and have a SECRET Clearance.
Must relocate to Destin-Fort Walton Beach area.
Travel to Wright Patterson AFB approximately 15%.
Preferred candidates will have recent and relevant skills with some of the following software tools.
- Solidworks or similar
- 6-DOF and other
Experience with HWIL testing, working in a laboratory environment, and on missile seekers is desired.
