Description:
Electrical and Computer Engineers at the Bettis and
Knolls sites are engaged throughout their career in the
design, development, deployment, analysis,
troubleshooting, and testing of electrical systems
associated with shipboard instrumentation and control
systems, power electronics, propulsion plant simulation,
laboratory test facilities, and site electrical
infrastructure. This diversity in job opportunities
provides BMPC Electrical and Computer Engineers with
challenging work and a means to continue gaining
technical skills and broadening their experience
throughout their career.
The successful candidate will work on Advanced
Instrumentation and Control (I&C) Development for
Shipboard Electrical Systems to develop the "next
generation" embedded I&C system architectures and
prototype systems. This work will help set the direction
for further development of shipboard propulsion plant
systems. These I&C systems will perform reactor
protection, provide user interface and controls for
propulsion plant systems and provide safety critical
functions for current and future NNPP ship classes.
Typical roles and responsibilities include:
* Applying expertise in embedded systems development
to build prototype systems that will be part of an
overall concept for future I&C system design
* Determining functional requirements for a diverse
set of applications that will make sure of the "next
generation" I&C architecture
* Collaborating with other members of the Advanced
Development team to analyze system architecture and
develop integrated prototypes
* Initiating development contracts and collaborating
with external vendors to develop concepts and create
prototype designs
* Assist in identifying opportunities to develop the
organization's capabilities (through laboratory
facilities and/or technical training) to provide
more effective and timely development of prototypes
* Developing technical recommendations/reports that
clearly articulate the vision for development of the
"next generation" I&C concepts
* Working on diverse assignments that support career
growth
* Embedded system development using ARM processors,
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), and/or System
on a Chip (SoC) components
