Job Description: Systems Analyst/ Engineer – Advanced Ballistic and Non-Ballistic Threats (803)

The Systems Concepts and Requirements IPT of the National Team is seeking individuals who are creative and think-out-of-the-box to perform end-to-end analysis for the defeat of advanced ballistic and non-ballistic threat systems within the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) mission area and to expand concepts and capabilities for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). Individual will conduct analyses of advanced and emergent threats using MATLAB based modeling and simulation tools to support system engineering for development of system and sub-system performance requirements. Individual will also perform development, updates, and benchmarking/anchoring of BMDS M&S tools to support system analysis tasks. Individual will interface directly with government and industry subject matter experts to analyze and formulate performance and functional requirements for system-of-system level requirements specifications. Individual will work in a cross-discipline product team and routinely interface with National Team group leads, senior management, and government personnel responsible for executing analysis tasks. The individual will document analysis results in reports and briefings for critique and review by the Missile Defense Agency Systems Engineering Team (MDSET) and other Missile Defense Agency (MDA) representatives representing sensors, weapons, and C2. Individual may perform as a principal investigator. Individual may lead small analysis teams for short duration modeling events. This position is in Huntsville, AL.

Required Skills:

6 years of technical experience in numerical modeling and simulation of advanced threats using a high level programming language such as MATLAB, Python, FORTRAN, or similar language environment.
Experience with critical development and capture concepts in preparation of technical papers, presentations, and discussions. Experience performing qualitative and quantitative evaluations, assessments and characterizations of ballistic, non-ballistic, and hypersonic concepts across all phases of the kill chain.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills, leading small groups or working in focused teams as an independent individual contributor.
Active Top Secret clearance.

Desired Skills:

Experience with systems engineering with large, complex systems.
Demonstrated knowledge of advanced ballistic, non-ballistic, and hypersonic threats to include aero-maneuvering, hyper-glide, and hypersonic configurations. 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.).
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.).

Master’s, or PhD

Required Education (including Major):

Bachelor’s Degree in an engineering mathematics or physics.

This position requires either a U.S. Person or a Non-U.S. Person who is eligible to obtain any required Export Authorization. 120090
