Hunter’s design was based on an initial prototype created by another student employee—Garret Fitzpatrick from the University of Wisconsin. The MUCU, now in use, keeps astronauts comfortable when they are outside the shuttle simulator at Johnson Space Center. “ - Debbie Pierson, GA. Tech. “Thilini Rangedera, an aerospace engineering co-op from Georgia Tech, has made great contributions to the International Space Station Training Group. She is the first co-op student to become certified to teach two electrical power systems lessons to flight controllers as part of their preparation for an upcoming Space Station mission. She accomplished this goal during a four-month co-op tour.” - Robert P. Musgrove, NASA JSC Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers At many NASA centers co-op students rotate thru wind-tunnel facilities where they learn classic mime techniques such as “Walking against the wind.” Ames Research Center Dryden Flight Research Center Glenn Research Center Goddard Space Flight Center Jet Propulsion Laboratory Kennedy Space Center Langley Research Center Marshall Space Flight Center Stennis Space Center Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Other NASA Centers Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Redstone Arsenal Gov’t Co-op Programs: U.S. Army:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: U.S. Army Gov’t Co-op Programs: Don’t expect to get rich!:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Don’t expect to get rich!

Outline:  Outline Organization History Mission Statement and Implications Environment & Culture Types of Work Facilities Hiring Facts Interviews Organization:  Organization Naval Research Lab - NRL Spacecraft Engineering Department (Code 8200) You Would Work Here Space Systems Development Department (Code 8100) Naval Center for Space Technology (Code 8000: 1 of 8 Divisions in NRL) History: Timeline & Firsts:  History: Timeline & Firsts Great Space History and Experience at NRL 84 Satellites Launched Mission Statement & Implications:  Mission Statement & Implications Mission Driven…NOT Profit Driven Environment & Culture:  Environment & Culture Relatively Close Knit Group : SED (8200) about 125 People Will Not Get Lost in a Large Organization Management is On a First Name Basis Low Structure…“Nuts Running Loose” Management & Admin Support per Employee is Relatively Low Fosters Creativity & Flexibility Provides Tremendous Opportunities to Succeed Judged on Capability Not Rank - Often Receive Jobs and Responsibilities Well Above Your Rank However Requires Additional, Pro-Active Effort to Not be Left Behind Matrix Organization so Inherent Conflict: 2 Bosses- Formal & Project Boss Value “Showing Not Telling” Emphasis on Technical Understanding & Ability to Get the Job Done We are “Engineers of Research”, not the “Ponderers of Research” Personality is Important, Some Thrive in This Environment, Others Do Not Types of Work:  Types of Work Mission Design Spacecraft Design, Integration, & Test Structures Mechanisms Cmd Tlm & Data Handling Thermal Guidance, Nav, and Control Power RF Comms Flight & Ground Software Propulsion Integration & Test Payloads: Imaging, RF, Comms, etc. Launch Vehicle Interfacing & Ops Ground Station & Flight Operations Orbitology & Mission Planning Technology Development Facilities:  Facilities State-of-the-Art Design & Testing Facilities Mediocre Personal Facilities: Emphasis is on Functional, Not Nice No Nice Lobby Entrance, Furniture is Hit or Miss, etc. Hiring Facts:  Hiring Facts Co-oping is a Great Benefit to Both NRL & the Student NRL can Train and Evaluate Student Student can Learn, Evaluate NRL, and Sort Out Personal Job Preferences and Expectations Procedurally, Allows an Immediate Hiring Decision Upon Graduation Summer Internships Will Consider but Generally Not Worth the Time from an NRL Administrative Point-of View Non-Coop Graduates Must Openly Advertise & Compete for Job Personnel Division Selects Applicants, Not SED (8200) Usually Hard to have a Stand-Out Resume Straight Out of School Generally (NOT Always) Hire Through Another Company Until You Gain Enough Experience to “Stand-Out” in an Open Competition Gov’t Co-op Programs: Dept. of Energy:  Gov’t Co-op Programs: Dept. of Energy Gov’t Co-op
