: Systems Engineer - Conventional and Advanced Threats (806) 

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 functional and behavior analysis for the defeat of conventional and advanced Threats (e.g., aero-maneuvering, hypersonic, hyper-glide, countermeasures, etc.) systems within the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) mission area to expand concepts and capabilities for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). Candidate will participate in a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) environment to develop BMDS functional requirements and interfaces via system/component trade studies and analysis. Contributes to publishing change notices to the BMD system specification and update of requirements databases, architectural models, interface definitions, and DoDAF compliant based design packages to document, allocate and trace BMD system and element level requirements. Candidate will work within a cross-discipline product team with subject matter experts. Candidate will routinely interface with other National Team groups, technical leaders, and government personnel performing analysis tasks. The individual will document analysis results in reports and briefings for critique and review by SC&R and National Team stakeholders. The individual will document modeling and analysis results in reports and briefings for critique and review by SC&R and National Team stakeholders. Candidate’s on-the-job performance may lead to assignment in more senior roles. This position is located in Huntsville, AL 

Required Skills: 

6 years of experience in a technical requirements development role using DOORS and a requirements modelling tool such as “System Architect,” “Rhapsody,” “Magic Draw,” or similar tools. Individual must demonstrate knowledge of one-or-more of BMDS or similar capabilities: EO/IR sensors, RF/Radar sensors, kill vehicles, missiles/interceptors, threats & countermeasures, target discrimination, or command and control (e.g., C3I, C4I, etc.). 
Experience with thinking critically and capture concepts in papers, presentations, and discussions. 
Excellent communication skills, and work both independently and within a small team environment. 
Active Secret security clearance. 

Desired Skills: 

Demonstrated 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.). 
Knowledge of advanced threat systems ((e.g., aero-maneuvering, hypersonic, hyper-glide, countermeasures, etc.), a discriminator in selection. 
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.). Systems engineering experience with large, complex systems. 
Master’s or PhD. 

Required Education (including Major): 

Bachelor’s Degree in an engineering, mathematics or physics.
