195550 Requisition #

Moog is looking for a Control System Engineer to join our Test Equipment Engineering team.  In this role, you will be a primary motivator and contributor to the analysis, conceptual design, development, and testing of complex test equipment used to test military and commercial aircraft control components.  The Control System Engineer generally will operate as part of a design/development team, which includes other Department engineers with his/her primary concern being system or component performance and integration.  Typically, the System Engineer devises new approaches for problems encountered.  This position is located at our facility in Torrance, CA.


Moog Aircraft Group is the leader of advanced flight controls for commercial and military aircraft.  We are positioned on virtually every aircraft in the marketplace, supplying reliable systems that are highly supportable and add significant value for our customers.  Moog Aircraft Group is a sector of Moog (NYSE:MOG-A).  Moog designs, manufactures and integrates precision motion control components and systems.  Our high-performance solutions are used in satellites and space vehicles, military and commercial aircraft, launch vehicles, missiles, industrial machinery, marine applications, and medical equipment.  Headquartered in East Aurora, NY, we employ over 11,500 employees in 28 countries.  While we are most known for our products that are the best in the industry, what’s unique about Moog is our culture of trust and mutual respect that allows for personal initiative, autonomy and excellence. 


The Control System Engineer…

In the early stages of a new program, the project team will consult with the customer, establish the problem statement, conceive of potential hardware solutions to the problem, often through extensive trade studies, and then create a successful technical proposal. This phase is critical in that it establishes the basis for future design, and for contract negotiations. The Control System Engineer will then guide the evolution of the requirements and the conceptual design, control design, system modelling in Matlab/Simulink/AMESIM, detail design, and development testing. This requires occasional travel and the organization of presentations to customers.


As a Control System Engineer for Test Equipment, you will…

  • Work with internal and external customers to develop and refine system requirements.
    Conceptualize, model and design computer controlled mechanical/hydraulic test rigs.
  • Develop functional system models of the test equipment and actuators using MATLAB, Simulink, and AMESIM, and integrate them on computerized test consoles.
  • Define automated testing scripts for electro/hydro/mechanical actuators and controllers using MATLAB and/or Python.
  • Operate either independently or as part of a design/development team, which includes other Department engineers
  • Develop PID or other control system designs using Simulink, and lead tuning of the test equipment’s electro/hydro/mechanical control of the units under test and their load systems.
  • Develop architecture documents and system integration and testing plans and procedures.

Minimum Qualifications to be considered… 

  • Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Aerospace, or Systems Engineering
  • 6+ years of professional Engineering work experience
  • Engineering work experience with electro-hydraulic, electro-mechanical, or electro-pneumatic mechanisms/systems
  • Development experience as part of a project team
  • Due to certain military programs, US citizenship with ability to obtain D.O.D. secret clearance is required.  Having an existing clearance is a plus

Preferred Qualifications Include… 

  • Master’s Degree in Engineering
  • Experience with the design, modeling, analysis, and development of complex servo-mechanisms for mechanical and hydraulic test rigs
  • Experience in the areas of requirements definition, integration, V&V, modeling & simulation with project management
  • Engineering experience in the aerospace industry
  • Experience in off-the-shelf, real-time systems such as dSPACE and National Instruments is a plus
