Educational coursework in Composite Design, Laminate Theory, and Composite Materials is desired.
Experience with design, manufacturing and test of filament-wound composite case pressure vessels for solid rocket motors is key to performing job requirements.
Experience with preliminary sizing tools for filament-wound composite pressure vessels is required.
Experience with FEA tools such as ANSYS Workbench and/or NX NASTRAN is desired.
Familiarity with composite fiber and resin systems selection including subscale specimen testing and data analysis is desired.
US Citizenship required. Must be able to obtain and maintain a U.S. Security Clearance at the appropriate level (U.S. Citizenship required).
