Dept. 413: Ship Systems Engineering|
Department 413 is responsible for fluid systems on VIRGINIA Class nuclear submarines, including hydraulic, auxiliary, habitability, thermal management, seawater and compressed gas systems. These fluid systems are all essential to the functionality of submarines designed, built and supported by Electric Boat Corporation.
Implementation of these systems requires D413 engineers to regularly engage in:
Technical Work: Performing engineering calculations (e. g. pressure drop, flow analyses, heat loads, stress analysis); developing piping system designs; making material and equipment selections; analyzing arrangement studies; creating system design improvements; resolving design and potential construction issues; developing specifications and specification compliance; developing/reviewing system diagrams and drawings; configuration management of all cognizant products.
System Integration: Incorporating the system hardware within the physical arrangement of the ship; managing system interfaces; developing system operating instructions, test forms and maintenance procedures.
Project Management: Meeting quality, budgeting and scheduling targets; meeting program milestones which require technical integration with other disciplines; liaison with NAVSEA, Ships Force, private contractors and other shipyards; giving presentations related to cognizant systems; some travel (domestic and/or foreign) may be necessary.
On occasion, as business interests arise, engineers may also have opportunities to provide technical consultation (both at home and possibly abroad) on foreign projects.
