Perform System level engineering and analysis of the BMDS including mathematical-based modeling and simulation in support of the Missile Defense Agency's mission area. The selected individual will be operate in a team environment to develop performance concepts and requirements functionality and performance against evolving threats and countermeasures. 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 may 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.
Degree and experience in an engineering classification, mathematics or physics: Bachelor's, Master's or PhD.
Required Qualifications: Individual must have a technical background in kill vehicle functionality and performance. Candidate must possess demonstrated numerical modeling and simulation capability using a high level programming language such as MATLAB, Python, FORTRAN, or similar language environment or demonstrated strong skills analyzing output from performance modeling and simulation. 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: 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 systems.
