The Maritime Division of Leidos has a current opening for a Research Naval Architect to support multiple autonomous unmanned maritime platform programs. Specifically, Leidos is currently finalizing the design and overseeing the manufacturing of the second autonomous, unmanned trimaran known as Sea Hunter 2. The work is based out of the Bowie, MD office, with expected travel to Gulfport, MS to support the construction of the Sea Hunter 2. The basis of the overall program is to utilize the design features of the first hull, adapt the design based on agreed-to changes and lessons learned, and produce a second hull that meets the cost and schedule requirements. In addition to the design work, the individual will provide on-site support at the manufacturing location in Gulfport, MS. Onsite support includes interpreting structural, mechanical and electrical drawings, working with the planners and on-site engineers to clarify details, address questions and reach back to the Leidos engineers as required.
The team is also overseeing the testing of Sea Hunter 1 in San Diego, CA. The testing program includes developing the structural, mechanical and electrical interface designs for the multiple mission packages to be tested on-board Sea Hunter 1. The effort includes developing interface design control documents and overall design drawing packages that support the alternate missions that are currently planned. The integration of alternate mission packages will take place in San Diego, CA and travel to support the program is required.
The Research Naval Architect will be apply first principal analysis, knowledge about ABS HSNC rules, in-house computational tools and other industry standard tools to support the design and development of the 3D models and production drawings. In addition, the individual will be required to provide on-site support for both Sea Hunter vessels in Mississippi and California.
