Excellent time management and communication (written and verbal) skills, including public speaking and presentation.
Specific Functional Area duties include:
Provide detailed, expert statistical/mathematical analysis of performance data from integrated CVW training to fully comply with NAWDC air wing metrics support tasks.
Provide metrical analysis to WTI courses, compare performance across NAWDC syllabi and compare live performance to simulator performance.
Develop Measures of Effectiveness (MOE), data gathering methods and analytical tools, coordinate with NAWDC staff to collect data, reduce and analyze data, and provide quantitative performance reports to NAWDC during integrated CVW training.
Monitor and oversee collection of data during Integrated CVW training and WTI courses.
Identify performance trends, advise NAWDC staff on the quantitative performance of the CVW, and make recommendations to address performance concerns. Relate performance data to Navy Mission Essential Tasks (NMET) or other mandated metrics as appropriate.
Make recommendations to the NAWDC Technical Director on new data collection capabilities and requirements.
Maintain the master CVW performance database (currently SQL Server) in conjunction with the NAWDC software/database developer.
Provide analytic support to tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) development events as required.
