Researches, plans, designs and develops mechanical products and systems, with a focus on moderately complex materials (including energetics), structural components, and control systems for propulsion systems.  Applies research to the planning, design, development, and testing of propulsion systems (electric, solid/liquid fuel rocket, air-breathing, thrusters) for application in launch vehicles, missile systems, and space mission systems.  Coordinate strategy for developing and leveraging multi-disciplinary design, optimization, and analysis processes to support mission requirements. Define and coordinate the conduct of testing required to evaluate design work. with limited supervision. Determine engineering tasks required for project planning and execution. Document results of design activities and release results after review from other engineers.
