SAIC seeks a technical manager to assist the government in orchestrating the changes to the network and data architecture for the Air Force’s future Multi Domain Command and Control (MDC2) network and data virtualization capability. This will be achieved through a multi-node concept unifying software development with operators in order to achieve MDC2 objectives. It serves as a warfighter-centric focal point for USAF, Joint and coalition by rapidly developing capability and testing of future multi-domain concepts. The multi-domain command and control solution required will push the envelope on cloud implementation and network architecture in contested environments and will include an overarching architecture that is highly secure and leverages big data and artificial intelligence/machine learning. This will be achieved by: Maturing the Air Force’s understanding of virtualized data; creating a scalable operational infrastructure and data architecture; exploring artificial intelligence, machine learning, human-machine teaming & automation in support of enhancing C2 processes and critical functions; experimenting with and exploring innovative C2 technologies for multi- domain ops; experimenting with, developing and integrating advanced multi-level security tools and capabilities to enhance C2 interoperability and data sharing; and, experimenting and innovating new approaches to software testing and “authority to operate” processes in order to accelerate delivery of C2 capabilities to the field. The successful candidate will have strong technical competency and comfort with high level in-person interfaces with industry and officials from the US Government and Air Force on site in the client’s Massachusetts location.
