As part of the Mechanical Systems team in the Engineering Organization, this role will define thermal management architectures for hybrid-electric aircraft propulsion and energy systems. With a strong focus on practical research and technology, you will apply fundamental system engineering principles to the definition of engine and fuselage thermal management systems.
Additional topics include adapting thermal protection and shielding for new technologies such as high voltage power electronics, on-board batteries and hydrogen storage Units.
Serve as a subject matter expert for Thermal Management and Environmental Control (ATA21) Lead trade-off studies, and select suitable architectures given project constraints Develop aircraft and system-level requirements for thermal management systems Working with suppliers, specify and design thermal management architectures that safely and effectively meet requirements. Define requirement validation and verification strategy, and actively participate in the planning and execution of ground and flight test campaigns. Support design engineers working on thermal system components such as thermal shielding, pipes, pumps, heat exchangers, ducting, aero-thermal integration. Develop component, subsystem and system level models in order to enhance the team's ability to accelerate design, development and testing activities. Support the achievement of department objectives aligned with global objectives Some international travel is expected (<10%)
