Systems engineer (Expert-Level)
 
Jobcode: CO-0717-002
 
Location: Springfield, VA
Job Type: Full-time/Contract
Number of hires for this role: 1
Start Date: Immediate
  
Job Summary: 

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 in the DoD/IC to ensure timely and accurate geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).  
  

Required Skills & Experience:

  • Demonstrated experience in integrating SSA applications, including experience with compliance to Integrated Protection Strategy (IPS) controls.
  • Demonstrated experience with threats including space object surveillance and identification (SOSI), radar and optical sensors, command and control (C2), battle management command, control, and communications (BMC3), orbital analysis, and deep experience with offensive/defensive space control (OSC/DSC).
  • Experience dealing with data and data sources that exist at multiple classification levels and integrating that data with computational processes that will generate additional data at multiple classification levels; experience employing security controls to protect assets, mission, and data from SECRET to CAP/SAP levels.
  • 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.
  • Experience with space environment, and space-to-ground including threats to assets; track de-confliction of SSA, and Space imaging windows with ground targets; understanding of foreign collection threat against Space, Air, Sea, and Land operations in support of some of the nation’s most sensitive operations.
  • 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.
  • Experience with space object measurement and identification. Objects in space can be determined and matched to a 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 supporting IC or DoD CAP/SAP architecture.
  • Understanding of Model Based Systems Engineering, processes, tools and languages.
  • Master’s degree in Engineering + 18 years of experience or PhD in Engineering.
  • 10 years of experience in related technical or scientific fields such as engineering, physics, or mathematics.
  • US Citizen
  • TOP SECRET/SCI required
  • Current polygraph or consent to polygraph is required

Desired Experience:

Demonstrated experience with 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/IEC/IEEE 12207:2017 – Systems and Software Engineering – Software Life Cycle Processes
  • ISO/IEC 15288:  Systems Engineering – System Life Cycle Processes

Benefits:

  • 401(k)
  • 401(k) matching
  • Dental insurance
  • Health insurance
