Analyzes user needs to determine functional requirements for a wide variety of projects and highlights areas of improvement.Perform systems engineering and analysis of all RF sensors reflected in the Missile Defense architecture, including mathematical-based modeling and simulation in support of the Missile Defense Agency’s mission area. The selected individual will be considered a technical leader in a team environment to develop performance concepts and requirements for advanced radar functionality and performance against evolving threats and countermeasures, including track and discrimination, electronic attack, and mitigation techniques against electronic attack. Individual selected will be expected to coordinate within MDA and across industry to evaluate and bring leading edge techniques and radar capabilities into the BMDS system for consideration. Candidate will lead modeling and simulation tasks that support end-to-end performance analysis of the BMDS. Individual will also lead development, updating, and benchmarking/anchoring of BMDS M&S tools to support system analysis tasks. This position is in Huntsville, AL. Secret clearance required.
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: Individual must have a strong technical background in radar function and performance, including tracking, discrimination techniques, and electronic attack/electronic protection techniques. Candidate must possess strong numerical modeling and simulation capability of advanced threats using a high level programming language such as MATLAB, Python, FORTRAN, or similar language environment. Candidate must demonstrate ability to think critically to develop and capture concepts in technical papers, presentations, and discussions. Individual must possess good oral and written communication skills. Capable of working in focused teams as an independent individual contributor.
DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS: BA/BS (or equivalent experience), 5+ years of experience. Demonstrated experience modeling or simulating missile defense applications or similar domains (air combat, air defense, intercept of ballistic targets, intercept of non-ballistic targets, space vehicles, sub-orbital mechanics, etc.). Knowledge of ballistic and advanced threat systems ((e.g., aero-maneuvering, hypersonic, hyper-glide, countermeasures, etc.), a discriminator in selection. Modeling and analysis experience in aspects of the Ballistic missile defense system (e.g., Aegis Weapons Systems, Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD), Fire Control, C2BMC, BMDS sensors (EO/IR/RF), kill vehicles, interceptors, countermeasures, etc.). Systems engineering experience with large, complex
