PeopleTec, Inc. is currently seeking a Software Requirements Analyst to support the EESS contract at our Huntsville, AL location.

The SED Targets IV&V Team is requesting a full-time Software Engineer to support the following areas:

  • Integration of missile Flight Software into a Six Degrees of Freedom (6DOF) based All-Digital-Simulation (ADS) and Processor-In-the-Loop (PIL) testbed architectures. Ability to develop custom data interfaces a must. Experience with integration of C, C++, and Fortran.
  • Understanding of real-time operating systems is desired as well as experience of analog, discrete, and message standards desired (RS-422, 232, telemetry streams, power, analog, and discrete signals). Integration also includes connectivity of synchronized operations between Six Degrees of Freedom (6DOF) models, GPS simulation, Thrust Vector Control (TVC) systems, Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT), and ordinance interfaces. Understanding of high fidelity modeling architectures is critical. This is integration, debug, and verification work with an end state of providing a test capability to support formal IV&V test execution.
  • Engineering analysis: Ability to read/understand Software Specifications, interface specifications, System Specifications, performance specifications.
  • Program support: support/participate in configuration managed software environment, internal and external meeting support, customer interaction, and team coordination.
  • IV&V Test support: support development of IV&V Test plans and procedures; support executing Formal IV&V testing; preparing and archiving test artifacts (configuration sheets, reports, etc...).
  • Requirements analysis: assist with review of developer and customer requirements documents for purpose of developing IV&V requirements traceability matrix; analysis of test data results for purpose of preparing IV&V data review and final report.
  • The candidate should be a self-starter who has initiative, strong interpersonal communication, multi-tasking, and a willingness to work with others as part of a team.
  • The candidate must be eager to learn new MDA Missions' related acronyms, terminologies, major milestone events, and personnel titles.
