Radar Space Segment SEIT Systems Engineer position available - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

SEIT Systems Engineer
El Segundo, CA
The Radar Space Segment
SEIT systems engineer will be responsible for supporting architecture trades and developing/defining technical
requirements. In addition, this individual will work with payload and platform systems engineering to flowdown,
decompose and allocate requirements leading to System Requirements Review in 2007 and System Design Review in
2008. System engineering accountabilities include definition, allocation, validation, and verification of
satellite requirements, definition and control of payload interface requirements, assessing and managing technical
risk, identification and resolution of technical issues and anomalies including systemic process and quality
issues, and incorporation of lean methodologies. Additional responsibilities include specification and test
procedure review, test data buy-off, system sell-off, mission assurance reviews, and interfacing with a variety of
Satellite Development Center organizations. Must be able to work in a fast paced environment and have a self
starter mentality. Candidate should possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to
interface with a variety of internal and external organizations. Experience in systems engineering, spacecraft
design, assembly, integration and mechanical/electrical systems is desired. Project management skills in leading
teams and making strategic technical decisions would be helpful.
1.) Technical Skills and
Knowledge: Candidate must be an experienced satellite systems engineer with experience with platform requirements
derivation/decomposition, specification development and requirements verification and traceability.
Experience/expertise in requirements compliance and AI&T, radar systems, and/or bus subsystems is desired.
Experience in systems engineering, assembly, integration, and test/verification desirable. Spacecraft design
knowledge in one or more subsystems as well as experience in spacecraft validation and performance verification
matrix development is also desirable. 2.) People Working Together: Should possess good communication and

approaches to solving problems when needed; demonstrates awareness of the likely consequences or implications of
judgments. Generates and implements new and useful ideas; ideas reflect 'thinking outside the box'; explores
alternatives; takes risks and tries new approaches. 4.) Requirements Management: Resolve conflicts between
customer expectations, balance cost, implications, and risks for a requirement, define a valid requirement and
relate it to the architecture, and manage and trace requirements, flow-down, and linkage (e.g., requirement
relationships, derived requirements, product data management). Generate requirements from multiple information
sources such as policy/strategy, mission, regulations, build and support direction, threat environment, etc.. 5.)
Leadership: Leads tasks and people effectively; guides and coaches others to improve skills and achieve
challenging goals; inspires and motivates others; solicits and considers others' opinions. Takes independent
