It’s your chance to step up to the challenge and prove you’re ready to lead the world.
The Command and Control, Battle Management, and Communications Experimentation Laboratory (C2BMC X-Lab) is a very fast paced and dynamic environment. The X-Lab is responsible for developing and integrating future-capability prototypes for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) including Sensor/Weapon Integration, Algorithm Development, User Interface Development and other critical leading-edge missile defense technologies. The X-Lab has a need to augment the team with a senior systems engineer and analysis lead that holds at least a Secret clearance with a TS/SCI being preferable and possesses demonstrable skills in the following areas:
- Analysis tool development using MATLAB, Excel, S-Code, Satellite Toolkit (STK), etc.
- Perform verification and validation of systems (functional and performance)
- Full cycle systems engineering of new capabilities
- System and subsystem decomposition
- Use case, system requirements, performance specification development, and UML modeling
- System interface design & Interface Control Document development
- Conducting and participating in peer reviews
- Good communication skills (written and oral)
- Leadership of a team composed of multiple disciplines
This position will focus on and lead the analysis of R&D systems in C2BMC and will contribute to other ongoing X-Lab projects as needed. Including the assessment on how the C2BMC prototype system performs by identifying high level objectives and refining into an integrated set of metrics, analysis tool development, assessment of experimental data, generating and presenting customer-quality products containing analytical observations. The Lead Analyst will apply these results to identify and work to enhance C2BMC for future operations. The Lead Analyst must possess expertise in a technical discipline related to systems engineering, analysis, or missile defense. The Lead Analyst should be comfortable with rapidly changing requirements, design challenges that require novel solutions, fast-paced activities, and tight deadlines.
The Lead Analyst must have [12+] years of experience leading or contributing to an integrated team environment with other systems, software, and specialty engineers to develop solutions that includes a background in all aspects of the analysis life cycle. The Lead Analyst should have experience with identification of analysis objectives, metric generation, data assessment, and presentation of the results. The Lead Analyst should have demonstrated the ability to analyze high level customer needs and defined a structured and logical approach to refine the objectives and analysis requirements. The Lead Analyst should have demonstrated the ability to communicate effectively, developed and scripted analysis tools, clearly present technical approaches and findings, and have experience in writing and implementing analysis plans within a project. Ideally, the Lead Analyst will have experience in working on IRAD-type projects.
Perform as individual contributor and Analyst Lead for advanced concepts development projects. This includes directing the activities of junior level engineers. Contribute in full lifecycle development of advanced concepts. Position is responsible for performing the evaluation of advanced missile defense command and control capabilities to provide highly innovative and ingenious solutions to complex technical problems. Including defining and
coordinating analysis objectives and metrics for various experimental prototypes, performing the associated analysis, and serve as the X-Lab spokesperson on advanced projects when briefing results to the customer. Actions are critical to achieving X-Lab organizational objectives and directly affect the impact of X-Lab technological capability. Assignments are often self-initiated with consultation and agreement of X-Lab leadership. The Lead Analyst will provide oversight of maintenance and improvements to the analysis tool suite.
