Reference Number: 2644D
Location: New Hampshire

Title: Opto-Mechanical Engineer

Location: New Hampshire


The role of the Mechanical Engineer is to develop producible opto-mechanical designs and documentation to meet the overall system design performance and requirements flow down. The Mechanical Engineer develops the mechanical concept, defines the parts and materials, develops and/or directs the solid design model, and supervises/approves the production drawings and documentation. The Mechanical Engineer will also perform or supervise the tolerance, structural, thermal and mechanism analyses. The Mechanical Engineer will also support the development of prototypes, verification testing, and DTUPC.



  • Design optical systems for A&D environments with support from optical designers
  • Support build of prototypes
  • Up to 10%  travel required


Education Experience:

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent
  • MS in Mechanical Engineering desired
  • Minimum 8 years’ performing opto-mechanical design and development of optical systems layout, optical systems and geometric tolerancing
  • Competency in finite element analysis (Nastran preferred)
  • Experience working with optical design software, optical system test setup and fixture design is desired
  • Opto-mechanics
  • Geometric dimensioning
  • Optical systems
  • Shock, vibration and thermal analysis
  • Design / Modelling (SolidWorks preferred)
