What You’ll Get to Do:

As a C-UAS Threat and Security Assessment Integrator, you will provide specialized threat analysis and security assessment support to evaluate C-UAS reporting and understand and mitigate the threat posed by Unmanned Aerial Systems to critical infrastructure, locations, and assets.

You will monitor and conduct detailed operational analysis on C-UAS systems data reports to ensure successful transfer into a usable, quantitative format for analysis.  You will incorporate  C-UAS data and other related data sources to conduct operations, security, and multi-intelligence analysis that aids Military Commanders to detect, identity, monitor, and track UAS activity. 

You will develop assessments and recommend procedures and courses of action that could be used to obtain operationally actionable information augmenting DoD’s responsibility to mitigate the threat posed by unmanned aircraft systems to the safety or security of covered DoD facilities or assets.    

As required, you will integrate available UAS data with existing national-level products and databases to define patterns of threat and UAS network activity and narrow the search space to conduct counter-threat and support C-UAS operations.  

As required, you will interact directly with local, state and Federal law enforcement agencies; the Department of Homeland Security and other DoD and Federal Agencies to develop comprehensive operations-intelligence products that inform a variety of activities to protect critical infrastructure, providing an enhanced risk picture for DoD to enable and inform force protection efforts and also provide threat assessments to installations that inform risk-based decision making. 

As required, you will participate in the development and fielding of operational and analytical tools and techniques that enhance the organization’s ability to ingest, collate, search and tailor UAS related data to meet customer requirements.

 More About the Role:

You will work as part of a multifunctional team of operations-intelligence analysts, operational planners, technologists and subject matter experts to assist a variety of interagency partners with fusing CUAS,  operations, and intelligence information to enhance their effectiveness against UAS threats and associated networks. You will identify and analyze problems, and generate recommended solutions based upon experience working with elements of the DOD, JCO, and interagency and law enforcement agencies, and multi-national partners.

You will directly support organizations and agencies tasked with the mission of UAS threat and security assessment with special emphasis on understanding and countering the growing threat posed by unmanned aerial systems (UAS). You will collect, collate, assemble, fuse, analyze and deliver tailored answers to requests for support from a variety of agencies including the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

As a member of the team, you will be expected to become a Subject Matter Expert on the capabilities, tactical employment and distribution of UAS that adversaries could use to disrupt, disable or defeat capabilities to defend critical infrastructure.

 You will work closely with other members of your team to identify capabilities and vulnerabilities of UAS systems and threat networks that could attack critical infrastructure; identify trends, patterns, and key nodes of these networks; and highlight vulnerabilities that could be exploited to defeat them.
