We are seeking a Mechanical Engineer to support our Navy DoD customer in research, development, testing, evaluation, and engineering analysis at our Colorado Springs, CO office.
For more than 60 years, Peraton has supported our Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) customer by performing research, development, analysis, modeling and simulation, and testing to assess weapon system performance and qualify weapon systems for normal and hostile environments. We provide support in the areas of programmatic and systems engineering, technical engineering, scientific analysis, and operational systems support for SSP’s strategic reentry systems. We utilize both COTS and in-house developed software to deliver analysis results and software models of reentry system and weapons effects to Navy SSP or their designee.
The Mechanical Engineer will perform engineering analysis and computational modeling to evaluate the aerodynamic performance and thermal response of complex three-dimensional systems. The successful candidate will conduct computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and thermal calculations to support trajectory analysis and assess weapon system performance subject to various environments. Candidate will perform a wide range of tasks including calculations of hypersonic fluid flow, thermal response of materials, code validation studies, system tradeoff studies, and mechanical testing. Position will require the use engineering simulation software including in-house trajectory simulation codes, hydrodynamic analysis tools and CFD solvers (i.e., Pointwise, GASP, US3D, etc.).
Position will be responsible for the following:
This position requires the candidate to have an active Secret clearance and to maintain the clearance. A TS clearance is preferred and candidates with a TS clearance will be given preference.
