Work Location: NASA Ames Research Center - Mountain View, CA - Temporarily RemoteREQUIREMENTS
Minimum Citizenship: U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
JOB DESCRIPTION - Aerospace Hardware Research Engineer II - NASA ARMADAS
NASA is developing the “Automated Reconfigurable Mission Adaptive Digital Assembly System” (ARMADAS) to automate assembly of ultralight lattice-based structures for space infrastructure.
To meet the needs of future deep space exploration, NASA is interested in large-scale hardware systems in the Agency’s thrust areas of solar power, communications, habitats, and science interests. Scalable in-space assembly of physical systems is critical to mass-less exploration and in-space reliance goals. The ARMADAS project is developing and demonstrating autonomous assembly of digital materials and structures. This will produce automation technologies with potential for meeting long-duration and deep-space infrastructure needs, including achieving in-space reliance with construction and maintenance of long-duration spaceport and habitat scale systems.
This position is for a full-time robotics mechanical engineer to develop hardware for the ARMADAS project:
We need people with a broad range of technical expertise to help pull it all together. Join us if you are a hardware developer with a strong CAD, FEA, or robotics background.
