Location: Springfield, VA 22150
Job Type: Full-time/Contract
Number of hires for this role: 2

Overall Assignment Description:

Employ a multi-discipline approach to requirements engineering, solutions engineering, reliability, resiliency, services development, research and development (R&D), integration, test and evaluation, maintainability and analysis across Controlled Access Program/Special Access Program (CAP/SAP) architectures to ensure timely and accurate Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT). Candidates will be required to sign additional Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and provide proof of no Other Conflicts of Interest (OCI) for performance in the (classified) Program Management Office, henceforth to be referenced as “PMO.”

Duties include:

  • Develop and maintain System Engineering Plans (SEPs), Configuration Management Plan (CMP) and other engineering documentation
  • Develop and maintain standard acquisition documentation for PMO portfolio including standardized requirements documentation and processes
  • Implement repeatable processes and procedures for transitioning new technologies and integrating new applications into PMO infrastructure
  • Participate in requirements development and configuration baseline documentation
  • Provide evaluations of proposed industry solutions to identify innovative and new technologies to prototype and transition into the PMO
  • Provide baseline requirements (Requests For Change (RFCs), Interface Control Documents (ICDs), standards) support to include the full breadth of Space requirements, coordination meetings, and initiatives to transition R&D capabilities into PMO operations

Required Skills and Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or 12 years of experience in related technical or scientific fields such as engineering, physics, or mathematics (Senior level)
  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or 6 years of experience in related technical or scientific fields such as engineering, physics, or mathematics (Mid level)
  • Demonstrated experience with Integrated Protection Strategy (IPS) (Senior level)
  • Demonstrated experience with threats including SOSI, Radar and Optical sensors, Command and Control (C2), Battle Management Command, Control, and Communications (BMC3), orbital analysis, and Offensive/Defensive Space Control (OSC/DSC) (Senior level)
  • Demonstrated experience dealing with data and data sources that exist at multiple classification levels
  • Demonstrated experience employing security controls to protect assets, missions, and data from SECRET to TOP SECRET/CAP/SAP levels
  • Demonstrated experience with space environment, and space to ground including threats to assets, track de-confliction of SSA, and
  • Space imaging windows with ground targets/assets (Senior level)
  • Demonstrated experience with foreign collection threats against Space, Air, Sea, and Land operations to support some of the nation’s most sensitive operations
  • Demonstrated experience supporting DoD or IC Space CAP/SAP architecture
  • Active SCI required, current SCI eligibility preferred
  • Willing to take and pass a polygraph
Desired Skills and Experience:
  • Demonstrated understanding of the following standards:
  • ANSI/EIA 632: Processes for Engineering Systems
  • IEEE 1220: Standard for Application and Management of Systems Engineering
  • IEEE 24765:2017 – Systems and Software Engineering – Vocabulary
  • ISO/TEC/TEEE 12207:2017 – Systems and Software Engineering – Software Life Cycle Processes
  • ISO/TEC 15288: Systems Engineering – System Life Cycle Processes
  • Demonstrated experience with model-based systems engineering, processes, tools and languages
  • Demonstrated experience with space object measurement and identification. Objects in space can be determined and matched to space catalog (with some degree of confidence) by combining measurements from multiple sensors; metric object identification can be augmented by temporal behavioral properties where available. The properties of unknown objects can be captured and associated with observations and tracks for subsequent refinement
  • Demonstrated experience with physics models to include the assessment of conservative/non-conservative forces, uncertainty/confidence estimation, space weather effects, break-up events, and conjunction analysis techniques that scale to many-on-many objects and can be dynamically tasked
  • Demonstrated experience with space enterprise information needs (comprehensive, historical, and indexed appropriately for down-stream tools), including space object observations, historical behavior and the relevant context of that behavior


  • 401(k)
  • 401(k) matching
  • Dental insurance
  • Health insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Paid time off
