The Future Plant Systems Engineering unit in FDP is responsible for determining notional designs and driving technology development for mechanical and electrical systems for a new submarine. This position will provide an opportunity for the successful candidate to contribute significantly to the technical approach and delivery strategy for the I&C and integrated electrical power systems for a future submarine.
The experienced Electrical Engineer in Future Plant Systems Engineering will use their technical skills and leadership to ensure high quality work is completed as well as providing mentoring for less experienced engineers in the unit. The engineer will be responsible for technology and concept development in Instrumentation and Control and power systems integration in support of a future submarine propulsion plant. The successful candidate will work with stakeholder organizations both inside and outside of NNL to plan and coordinate the long term development of workable concepts for Reactor, Propulsion, and Electric Plant I&C systems and power system integration. The successful candidate will contribute their specific design and operations knowledge in the areas of Generic I&C systems, integrated power systems, power electronics, and shipboard information systems to the overall technology development efforts of the unit. In addition, this position will require familiarity with the design and operation of the mechanical propulsion plant systems as well as the reactor protection systems.
The successful candidate will work independently and as part of a larger team to develop technology concepts, cost estimates and schedules, develop risk mitigation strategies, and recommend course corrections based on their knowledge and experience.
