The Software Engineering Department at the White Sands Complex has an opening for a Software Engineer to join the NCCDS group. This individual will be responsible for developing and maintaining software to support the TDRS spacecraft constellation.
Peraton is the prime contractor on the SCNS contract for NASA at the White Sands Complex near Las Cruces, New Mexico. Operating here are two functionally identical satellite ground terminals: The White Sands Ground Terminal, and the second TDRSS Ground Terminal. These two terminals ensure uninterrupted communications between various ground stations, NASA’s orbiting fleet of Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS), customer spacecraft (satellites), and the computer systems that support such spacecraft. The WSC also serves as an interface for distributing satellite data to control centers and scientists who then use the daily influx of data to expand our ever-growing knowledge of the Earth and the universe.
