Click a position you like

  • Avionics GNC
    • You will work on the Design and Testing of our Navigation System. You can expect to work on algorithm development, IMU testing, and Sensor processing. Through this work, you will ensure that Halcyon always knows its position, velocity, and attitude. Expect significant usage of MATLAB in this role.

      Desired Skills:
      Attitude Kinematics Filtering Sensors Dynamics MATLAB/Simulink Basic Programming

    • As a Trick Simulation Engineer, you will help develop a comprehensive 6-degree-of-freedom (6DOF) flight simulation for the lab. You will develop models, simulate rocket dynamics, and perform flight trajectory analysis in this role. You will learn essential programming skills and C++.

      Desired Skills:
      Attitude Dynamics Dynamics Modeling/Simulation Aerodynamics Control Theory C++ Intermediate Programming

  • Avionics Software
    • You will develop drivers in LabVIEW and VeriStand which emulate our rocket's more complex devices (e.g., IMUs, altimeter) in full flight simulations. This work is critical to ensuring the high fidelity and verifying power of our HIL simulation.

      Desired Skills:
      C LabVIEW FPGA embedded systems

    • You will implement and test fault-tolerant avionics software that controls the rocket in flight.

      Desired Skills:
      C++ Linux operating systems embedded systems

    • You will design and perform tests of flight computer robustness in flight-like environmental conditions. You will periodically work evenings at Briggs Test Site.

      Desired Skills:
      C++ Linux operating systems embedded systems

  • Payload
    • You will help write Payload's flight code including programming triggers, modify the code to test on ground and simulate code in flight conditions. Since payload is interdisciplinary, you can also jump into projects in other subteams if interested / needed.

      Desired Skills:
      Python flight code structure sensors knowledge Raspberry Pi simulations subteam flexibility

    • You will help finalize a variety of fluids tasks to prep for PDR and CDR including FMEAs and fluid simulations. Will then work on testing fluids components at PRC. Since payload is interdisciplinary, you can also jump into projects in other subteams if interested/needed.

      Desired Skills:
      fluids knowledge hands-on work/testing PRC building subteam flexibility

  • Propulsion Testing
    • You will for design, manufacture, iterate, and operate test infrastrcuture. Responsible for designing and running expiriments and tests to evaluate propulsion hardware such as engines, valves, injectors, igniters, etc.

      Desired Skills:
      C++ Linux operating systems embedded systems

  • Recovery
    • You will for design, manufacture, iterate, and operate test infrastrcuture. Responsible for designing and running expiriments and tests to evaluate propulsion hardware such as engines, valves, injectors, igniters, etc.

      Desired Skills:
      C++ Linux operating systems embedded systems

  • Structures
    • You will design and simulate launch conditions and integrate the hold down system into the overall launch platform.
