Here’s an opportunity to work for the US Air Force’s most storied and advanced Distributed Training operation. Winner of numerous US Air Force and US Department of Defense training awards over the last 18 years, the Distributed Mission Operations Center (DMOC) at Kirtland AFB is the Air Force’s primary hub for distributed combat training exercises, testing and experimentation. Through the DMOC, warfighters at locations around the globe face realistic environments to practice tactics and procedures in highly-realist training environments. The DMOC architecture integrates synthetic (virtual and/or constructive) simulations across various networks to support a battlespace that accurately models adversary and friendly weapons and weapons systems, focusing on Command, Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance systems. Integrating live, virtual and constructive (LVC) elements, the DMOC is a major contributor to the US Air Force’s Operational Training Infrastructure (OTI).  The DMOC paves the way to bridge the gap for fifth generation training in air, space, and cyber domains.  This is your chance to influence an industry leader as the DMOC moves to the next level of exceptional training capabilities.

 

We are looking for an innovative and forward-thinking software engineer to help us create a state-of-the-art battlespace and the tools to manage it. The DMOC is on the verge of moving the Air Force to the next level of advanced distributed training, and your duties may include:

  • Optimization and filtering of entities based on LOS, geographical distribution, and interest

  • Translation and control of battlespace data between simulations

  • Predictive fault detection through system monitoring and event forecasting
