REQ#: RQ124856

Travel Required: Less than 10%
Requisition Type: Pipeline

Analyzes system requirements and concept of operations documents, acquisition plans, and system descriptions to develop evaluation and test plans and procedures, prepare for and conduct the data collection and analysis, and report status and results. Supports the development of Government test and evaluation documentation e.g., Test & Evaluation (T&E) Strategy, Test & Evaluation Master Plan, Event Test Plans, Test Readiness Assessments, and T&E Reports. Works with other test organizations to support T&E program integration. Provides specialized T&E capabilities tailored to system functions, level, maturity, and performance area.

Positions are available at the following 2 levels:

Test Engineer Level 1

  • Assist with any or all of the Level 1 tasks as constrained by technical training and previous testing experience
  • Conduct research into and apply knowledge of Government test and evaluation concepts and related engineering, acquisition, and operations activities as needed to support the T&E activities
  • Plan and Execute Performance Analysis (U) Review planned acquisition approaches to support T&E schedule alignment with decision maker needs for T&E support (U) Analyze performance risk areas to focus T&E planning
  • Specify, validate, and adapt Modeling and Simulation for T&E use
  • Apply Statistical Analysis of variations in performance behavior to characterize confidence in performance estimates
  • Select, develop, & use analysis tools (U) Execute the evaluation plan on data collected by the Testing Tasks (U) Plan and Execute Performance Data Collection
  • Plan program and event level testing for collection of data required for analysis and to synch T&E events with supported decision points
  • Establish and employ Data & Configuration Management capabilities (U) Support Data Authentication group functions; and comply with program Discrepancy Reporting criteria and processes
  • Assess operational and system performance requirements for testability and criticality to frame and prioritize T&E objectives and enable evaluation planning
  • Coordinate with program Systems Engineering (SE) and review T&E-related SE information to leverage functional analysis, system descriptions, parameter selection and dependencies, Modeling and Simulation, and initial performance risk assessments to inform evaluation planning
  • Assess operational environments and priorities for evaluation attention and scenario selection, and to coordinate user participation in T&E
  • Plan program and event level risk-tailored performance estimation and analysis of system and operational Effectiveness and Suitability metrics & conditions; levels of T&E include inspection, demonstration, paper analysis, survey, simulation, and physical test
