Ship Control and Monitoring Systems.|
The Virginia Class Ship Control System is a major technological improvement over the ship control systems of previous submarine classes. A fly-by-wire system controls the previous hydraulic mechanical-based system which controls the ship's steering and diving performance. It provides significantly increased capabilities, exceptional reliability via software fault tolerance, and reduced manning via automation.
Motion Based Simulators and Trainers are developed to support the operational and maintenance training of Navy crews.
This group is responsible of development in accordance with the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) processes and division system engineering directives.
Engineering opportunity exists in leading a team of engineers from the initial design concept through system development, simulation and modelling, hardware/software integration, test, and delivery of trainers across multiple trainer sites. Position integrates with multiple engineering disciplines and outside organizations, including contractors and Navy customer.
• Engineers address electronic obsolescence of the Motion Based Simulators and Trainers.
• Engineers are responsible for defining system/hardware requirements including decomposition from upper level specifications to lower level specifications, concepts of operations, control models and algorithms, testing systems, and integrating systems into the trainer.
