Maintain and develop a library of effective and modular component models using existing models, simulations, and hardware test data.
Identify and perform R+D for adaptive control algorithms and prognostic health monitoring for improved performance and maintenance.
Lead development of control algorithms for propeller systems and incorporate into requirements for propeller control software (DO-178 Level A software).
Interact with internal customers, external customers (military, powerplant manufacturers, and/or aircraft manufacturers), and suppliers.
Participate in internal and external product design engineering teams and reviews.
Be involved, either directly or indirectly, with aircraft and propeller system troubleshooting with operators after entry into service.
Ability to clearly and concisely communicate complex technical information in presentation and report forms.
Some international travel is required to coordinate with the Figeac, France site and for customer support.
