The Simulator Engineering & Programs - Hardware Engineering group is leading the way in the development of advanced simulation training systems used in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (NNPP) for the training of our Sailors. This business area continues to expand as the demand for high fidelity, reliable, and cost effective training solutions grows.
An Advanced/Senior Engineer position is available to drive this technical advancement in simulation engineering. This position will require involvement in numerous simulation products which will be delivered over the next several years. The successful candidate will be responsible for working through various project stages including design, installation, testing, and ultimately lifecycle sustainment of the simulation platforms. Additionally, this position will include involvement in the development of next generation simulation products which will be developed over the next decades. Specific responsibilities include:
- Supporting development and implementation of PLC I/O based control systems
- Troubleshooting PLC I/O based control systems
- Reviewing and dispositioning supplier electrical design submittals to validate technical requirements are met
- Coordinating lifecycle sustainment efforts, including spare parts, documentation, and maintenance for PLC I/O based control systems
- Responding to supplier requests for information and engineering changes
- Developing technical requirements defining high-level functionality of trainers
- Developing technical specifications for contracting with simulation suppliers
- Interfacing with suppliers and performing oversight of supplier manufacturing and testing
The Naval Nuclear Laboratory is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) by Fluor Marine Propulsion, LLC (FMP), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fluor Corporation. Naval Nuclear Laboratory personnel are FMP employees who work at four DOE facilities: Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory, Kenneth A. Kesselring Site, and Naval Reactors Facility, and at the U.S. Department of Defense-owned Nuclear Power Training Unit-Charleston. FMP employees also have an established presence at numerous shipyards and vendor locations. For nearly 70 years, the Naval Nuclear Laboratory has developed advanced nuclear propulsion technology, provided technical support, and trained world-class nuclear operators to ensure the safe and reliable operation of our nation's submarine and aircraft carrier Fleets. The Naval Nuclear Laboratory is a national asset solely dedicated to the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. We rely on the dedication and innovation of our nearly 8000 engineers, scientists, technicians, and support personnel.
