Description

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 Environmental Monitoring (EM). 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 EM 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
  •  Integrating developed models into a cohesive end-to-end environment to enable end-to-end architectural insight
  • 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

Qualifications

  • Master's Degree in Math, Science, or Engineering with 15+ years of demonstrated system engineering and integration experience (equivalently a similar Bachelor's Degree with 17+ years, or PhD with 12+ years)
  • Experience working across space and ground segment organizations to coordinate and identify system requirements that ensure end-to-end mission performance requirements are met
  • Strong understanding of modeling, simulation, and mission analysis techniques and tools
  • Experienced at self-starting, seeking solutions, and works well in a team environment
  • Experience scripting for analysis purposes
  • Understanding of Digital Engineering or Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and knowledge of a SysML tool
  • Demonstrated experience working with Air Force/DoD customers in an acquisition environment, with space and/or ground systems
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, as well as organization and interpersonal skills
