Job Description:

Project (or Opportunity)

Position Overview: Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) Systems Engineering is seeking a Systems Analyst/Engineer to support the System Assessment Directorate (MDA DE/EEA) in all aspects of program activities in a system engineering organization. Primary duties include working on a team of element functional analysts, defining assessment requirements and evaluating test results to characterize the interoperability, capabilities, and limitations of new BMD element deliveries. A broad understanding of BMD system functions: radar, fire control, weapons and operational concepts is a significant plus. This position requires excellent written and verbal skills as well as exceptional MS office skills.


Describe what we need the employee to accomplish in this role.

  • Serve as an BMDS element analyst identifying testing requirements to assess new BMD capabilities

  • Prepare inputs to assessment requirements and analysis plans, manage product development timeline and communicate technical and schedule risk

  • Analyze output of BMDS-level models to identify key test points and conditions that bound an operational performance space or define a new incremental capability

  • Contribute to assessment requirements, identify assessment sub-objectives, critical assessment conditions, and key test points to provide a body of evidence to make recommendations regarding acceptance of new BMD element software with a focus on the new capabilities

  • Review technical descriptions of software upgrades from element program offices and develop an understanding of the new capabilities to be assessed

  • Assist with post-test assessment of the capabilities and limitations of new BMDS deliveries and preparing briefings with recommendations for additions to the BMD Operational Capability Baseline

  • Provide input to information/decision papers and briefings, and staff meeting charts

Experience Requirements:

  • Technical background with demonstrated ability to interpret, summarize and communicate engineering issues and test results

  • Systems Engineering experience in defense or related industry

  • Capability to develop and present reports and presentations to senior management-level personnel

  • Desire experience with BMDS, including familiarity with radar, fire control, or weapon systems

Specific BMDS element expertise is flexible, but position will replace an analyst who focused on Ground-based Midcourse Defense capabilities—so prefer GMD experience
