Department Description:

The Mechanical Design departments provides mechanical design engineering services using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, such as Pro/Engineer and other 3D modeling tools, to mathematically represent the physical attributes of the product. We partner with Product Realizations Teams (PRTs) to produce high quality design models and engineering drawings of systems, components and layouts including assembly and piece part definition using Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). We determine the physical characteristics of the product to be manufactured, including geometric form, interface features, manufacturing specifications, processes, and assembly instructions. We ensure design feasibility from a manufacturing and product maintenance perspective. We communicate the design options and recommended approach to product development teams, stakeholders, and manufacturing partners. We apply technical discernment based upon engineering principles in the design and development of creative products for supporting our Nations security programs.
