Make a difference for national security by joining a team of dedicated professionals in El Segundo, CA who assist the US Air Force in developing and deploying the next generation of satellites and ground systems for missile warning (MW) and space-based environmental monitoring (SBEM). These systems alert senior military officials when missile launches occur around the globe, as well as enable global naval vessel and troop movements by providing mission-critical weather data to ensure safe passage.
Our Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) team has an immediate need for a Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis Lead with experience analyzing space and ground system architectures. We are looking for innovative, creative, and highly motivated individuals to develop models and simulations that effectively capture system and system of systems effects in complex operational environments.
This role provides systems engineering and integration expertise in support of the Space and Missile Systems Center's (SMC) MW and SBEM mission areas.
Primary responsibilities include:
Leading the team to design, develop, and verify simulations and analysis plans, as well as other work products such as gap analyses or Technical Performance Measures (TPM) assessments, that enable key program and architectural decisions
Generating analytical modeling solutions to assess enterprise performance, identify technology gaps, creating technology roadmaps, developing requirements and specifying the operational benefits of current and future concepts based on customer approved scenarios
Support requirements development, system verification, and concept of operations (CONOPS) development as well as working with system and mission analysts to ensure additional modeling, simulation, analysis capabilities meet operational mission requirements
Identifying needs and opportunities for independent assessment and improvement of the enterprise and/or system
Developing modeling solutions for each phase of the find, fix, target, track,engage, and assess chain using sensor, effects, and communications technologies
Developing algorithms, writing simulations, and analyzing key performance parameters associated with space and ground sensor system design
Supporting analysis activities by integrating performance models with MBSE models and tools
Quantifying performance impacts and sensitivity to changes in CONOPS, scenarios, and/or threats
Developing and briefing data packages that provide analysis results to inform the government decision-makers
Working closely with the government customer to understand needs and collaborating with prime contractors, other team contractors, government civilians, and members of the U.S. Air Force
Mentoring and training junior engineers, finding opportunities for them to grow professionally in this environment through leading projects and briefing leadership
Experience working in an Agile team/framework
Experience with MATLAB, STK, AFSIM, MODTRAN, SSGM, or other comparable modeling and simulation tools
Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) experience using Sparx Enterprise Architect or other comparable tools
OPIR and SBEM Mission experience is highly desirable
