Modeling and Simulation Engineer

Company: DroneUp LLC
Location: Virginia Beach
Posted on: September 17, 2022

Job Description:

DroneUp is seeking a highly motivated Modeling and Simulation Engineer to be the Airspace Innovation M&S guru. The engineer will work in a collaborative team environment to develop models and simulations for the DroneUp Airspace Innovation department. Specifics include Airspace Characterization and Low-Altitude Encounter Modeling using open-source software and data. One aspect of this position is to implement the MIT-LL open-source software and data which model both airspace density characterization and the low-altitude encounter models to support the validation and verification of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Detect and Avoid (DAA) performance requirements. The individual who fills this position will have the opportunity to support senior engineers during integration testing and flight testing. For example, the airspace encounter models were used to develop an international standard that provides requirements for DAA systems designed to mitigate the risk of drones colliding with manned aircraft ( Flight testing will be accomplished to show that DroneUp's solution is compliant with this standard.ResponsibilitiesCreate a DroneUp-specific standalone instantiation of the MIT-LL airspace density characterization and the low-altitude encounter models Write Matlab scripts to conduct various risk analyses of DroneUp hubs Provide top-level training to other DroneUp personnel on how to use/modify the scripts for new locationsNetwork and protocol modeling of wireless multi-domain (aerial/ground) networksDevelop new models and leverage existing models to conduct analyses, derive results, and form actionable data-driven recommendations for both technical and non-technical audiencesAdhere to and provide recommendations for modeling tools, approaches, and best practices to be adopted across the department.Develop, test, and integrate subsystem software in a Model Based Engineering System (MATLAB/Simulink) and continue development of the requirements and models for DAA solutionsApply an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to plan, design, develop, and verify basic system of systems and system solutionsEvaluate customer/operational needs to define system performance requirements, integrate technical parameters, and assure compatibility of all physical, functional, and program interfacesPerform analyses to optimize total system architectureVerify system design in a laboratory environment and support fight testTravel to sites to perform work as requiredOther duties as assigned

Bachelor's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or similar field with minimum 3 years relevant experience5 years experience in Simulink model based diagrams required5 years experience in aerospace or a related industry desiredExperience with software development and modeling and simulation tools (i.e., MATLAB, Simulink, STK, etc.) requiredHands-on experience in Model Based Systems Engineering simulation tools like MagicDraw and AirSim highly desiredExperience in DoD airborne Force on Force simulation desiredExperience with Git desiredExperience with software development using Python, C/C++/C# desiredStrong interpersonal skills to effectively contribute in multi-disciplinary teams across organizations, as well an ability to frame and articulate technical problems in a systems engineering contextExperience with communications systems performance modeling, detection analysis, RF interface modeling, link budgeting, network modeling, or system-level trade space evaluationThis position also requires the following essential functions:Visual acuity (e.g., needed to prepare and analyze data, to transcribe documents, to view a computer, to read, to inspect objects, to operate machineryBalancing (e.g., maintaining equilibrium when walking, climbing, crouching etc.)Stooping (e.g., bending the spine at the waist)Reaching (e.g., reaching the arms or legs in any direction)Lifting motion or lifting objects more than (30) poundsWalkingRepetitive motions of any part of the bodyKneeling, crouching or crawlingClimbing (e.g., ascending/descending ladders, stair, scaffolding, ramps, poles, etc. using feet and legs or hands/arms to climb)Grasping (e.g., use of hand to apply pressure)HearingTalkingCapacity to reason and make sound decisionsAbility to regularly perform all job functions at Company's office or work siteAbility to withstand environmental conditions (e.g., extreme heat or cold, grass, wind, sand, fumes, odors, gases, extreme noise, etc.)PI190081630
