Join our small, close knit engineering team developing advanced space missions as a Senior Thermal Systems Engineer. Millennium Space Systems designs and develops small satellites and other unique space systems. The Thermal Systems Engineer performs all spacecraft thermal system configuration, design, analysis and test. Spacecraft thermal subsystem elements includes all passive and active means of controlling the satellite’s system, subsystem, and component environments within both operating and survival limits during all pertinent system lifetime activities. The Thermal Engineer supports the Spacecraft Development Program Manager and Chief Systems Engineer with spacecraft design, configuration, layout, and analyses. Our Thermal Systems Engineer is involved with developing requirements, design, analysis, and development through system integration, and into flight operations.
Performs spacecraft thermal design and analysis at the subsystem and system level.
Develops systems and spacecraft element thermal models and exercises those models to predict thermal loads, impacts, and calculate temperature margins to support system design.
Identifies all materials, processes, and facilities to achieve a qualified spacecraft thermal design and operation.
Manages thermal qualification testing on spacecraft systems and components including test design, test conduct, data reduction, analysis, and reporting.
Manages all thermal design, development, and test activities and directs junior engineering support to accomplish all detailed design / analysis while incorporating other system requirements.
