As the advanced central research and development organization of The Boeing Company, Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T) provides innovative technologies that enable the development of future aerospace solutions while improving the cycle time, cost, quality and performance of existing Boeing products and services. In addition to Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Boeing Defense, Space & Security, BR&T customers include the US Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Federal Aviation Administration. The focus is on technical excellence, enhancing Boeing's growth and productivity, and helping the company operate more effectively so it can provide its customers with solutions that best meet their needs.
The position is with the Boeing Research and Technology (BR&T) Guidance, Navigation, Control & Autonomy group in Seattle, Washington. The position involves:
- Working with other Boeing engineers in a mentoring and collaborative mode in order to address challenges in the area of autonomy, especially as related to autonomous air vehicles. Autonomy is a far ranging discipline and the particular area of work will depend on the strengths and interests of the candidate as well as on programmatic needs.
- Working on development and implementation of capabilities and technologies needed for autonomous operations under the guidance from senior engineers.
- Because much autonomy work requires innovation or novel application of standard techniques, you will be analyzing problems and coming up with potential approaches under guidance from senior engineers.
- Problem solving, coding/implementation, and testing/analysis.
- Carrying out experiment design, testing, and results analysis as well as preparing reports and giving presentations.
- Coding typically involves C++ but may also encompass other programming or scripting languages.
