The Naval Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) develops and supports the world’s safest and most advanced reactor plants. Engineers in the Advanced Electrical Systems (AES) unit perform engineering evaluations and analysis, and make engineering decisions for all aspects of the propulsion plant instrumentation and electric distribution systems. Cognizant areas may include planning, design, modeling, analyzing, documenting, and testing of electrical sensors, components, and systems or the oversight of such work. The work requires critical analysis and review of design information, requirements, test plans, test results, and procedures. This AES engineering position for the FORD class of aircraft carriers involves direct interactions with the Navy and other government agencies, shipyards, vendors, and various internal organizations. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience with propulsion plant and reactor plant systems and to make a significant impact to the technology that protects our country. Typical responsibilities include:
(1) becoming a subject-matter expert, (2) applying engineering expertise to troubleshoot and resolve technical issues, (3) overseeing shipyard technical work efforts, (4) reviewing operating and maintenance procedures to be used by sailors, (5) review and concurring to shipyard submittals, (6) working on technology growth areas such as cyber-security, and (7) working on diverse assignments that support career growth.
