“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.” —Winston Churchill
Opto-Mechanical Design Engineer
Designs major portions of an opto-mechanical system, or technically advanced prototype/specific optical payload products.
Develops or improves products and facilitates manufacturing operations.
Develops basic data and makes preliminary layouts, sketches, and notes necessary to present design proposals. Investigates pertinent design factors such as ease of manufacture, availability of materials and equipment, interchangeability, replaceability, strength-weight efficiency, and contractual specification requirements and cost.
Coordinates with other organizations affected by design development.
Makes layouts of assemblies and details parts of devices, mechanisms, structures, and products.
Checks completed layouts and drawings for clarity, completeness, conformity to standards, procedures, specifications, and accuracy of calculations and dimensioning.
Identifies design errors, omissions, and other deficiencies, and recommends revisions and/or improvements in design layout to responsible engineers or designers.
Works with other Engineers to develop a better understanding of the unique aspects of Opto-Mechanical design features and constraints.
