UTC Aerospace Systems is one of the world's largest suppliers of technologically advanced aerospace and defense products. We design, manufacture and service systems and components and provide integrated solutions for commercial, regional, business and military aircraft, helicopters and other platforms. We are also a major supplier to international space programs.
In 2012, UTC Aerospace Systems was formed by combining two industry leaders, Hamilton Sundstrand and Goodrich, creating an organization with key positions on a wide range of aircraft flying today and substantial content on various UAVs, satellites and ground and naval vehicles.
The Test Requirements Specification (TRS) engineer supports development of test requirements and related activities for various electronic product lines developed within the Electric Systems business unit. Development of test requirements are directed at production testing of analog and digital PWBs, electronic controllers, power conversion and power distribution equipment used in aircraft electrical power generating systems. The successful candidate must demonstrate technical understanding of signal level circuits and power circuits. In addition the candidate must be a strong communicator.
The main responsibility for a test requirements engineer is to analyze electrical schematics to find the best method of testing a given circuit, and to determine the fault coverage the tests offer to each component in the circuit. The test requirements engineer develops the Test Requirements Specification (TRS) for how the test software and hardware should perform to test all circuits within a unit. The TRS engineer then integrates and troubleshoots the TRS on the test platform (hardware and software), along with test unit hardware and software, then coordinates the resolution of any issues. Test coverage analysis is performed by the TRS engineer to understand and close any coverage gaps.
The successful candidate will be expected to learn all TRS related processes in support of developing test strategies, program specific adaptations, and test coverage analysis for Aerospace Systems electronic products to run on existing and proposed test platforms. Assignments include detailed test requirements generation, test coverage analysis, production support for existing electronic tests, and support of outsourced work. Test requirements activities include conceptual and detailed design of electronics test strategies, circuit simulation of production tests, and electronic simulation of test code as well as integration of the test platform.
Occasional travel (1-3 weeks per year typical) is expected.
