Job Description

Job Description:

  • The System Safety Engineer will be responsible for system safety assessments for the Programs and Projects within the QD35 Vehicle Integration Branch for the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) Directorate. Core responsibilities include contributing to the design and development of aerospace vehicle systems and processes from a safety perspective, documenting various system safety analyses, and assisting with safety-related requirements and verification management.

  • Develop and utilize SMA-specific tools needed to ensure that all applicable system safety requirements (e.g., Agency, Center, Program/Project, etc.) are identified for MSFC programs and projects.

  • Assist Vehicle Integration Team with the design/development of SLS compliance with Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) requirements. Apply system safety analysis techniques in the design of safety-critical products. Candidate may be requested to travel to MAF/KSC for the upcoming vehicle integration in support of the SLS launch.

  • Conduct research to address problems associated with flight safety systems. Be knowledgeable of systems engineering and safety verification methodology and closure processes.

  • Ensure new systems (and those that have been repaired) meet requirements mandated by NASA and specifications set by manufacturers.

  • Review and prepare engineering and system safety analysis, technical reports, engineering change proposals, verification data, and other documentation.

  • Prepare and maintain System Safety Analysis Reports (including Hazard Reports) by identifying and evaluating severity and probability of vehicle system and cross-program hazards.

  • Coordinate with engineering, management and NASA Customer to exchange technical data to support the development of the safety analysis.

  • Review component Interface Design Document and Interface Control Documents to ensure completeness of safety analysis.

  • Ensure safety engineering support for program/project hardware/design milestone reviews through all phases of development (from concept through manufacturing to final acceptance) to ensure design compliance with safety requirements.

  • Perform system-level and cross-program assessment hazard analyses to assure that: (a) all hazards are identified and the associated risks properly characterized; (b) hazard controls satisfy applicable safety requirements and adequately mitigate safety risks; (c) safety verification requirements are clearly identified and adequate, including the clear definition of verification pass/fail criteria; and (d) the safety verification status is properly maintained in a closed loop accounting system. These tasks shall be performed for in-house and out-of-house design and development projects.

  • Assess test and operating procedures to assure compliance with safety controls and safety verification requirements.

  • Additional efforts include engineering analysis of systems to identify and eliminate safety hazards, integrated hazards analysis, and the systematic application of safety policies to the design of NASA human-rated hardware and overall implementation of safety practices for systems/subsystems.
