    CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS:
    Department of Defense SECRET security clearance is REQUIRED at time of hire. Applicants selected will be subject to a U.S. Government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information. Due to the nature of work performed within our facilities, U.S. citizenship is required.

    Responsibilities for this Position

    General Dynamics Mission Systems has an immediate opening for a X-LAB System Engineer.This position provides an opportunity to further advance the cutting-edge technology that supports some of our nation’s core defense/intelligence services and systems.  General Dynamics Mission Systems employees work closely with esteemed customers to develop solutions that allow them to carry out high-stakes national security missions.

     

    REPRESENTATIVE DUTIES AND TASKS:
    The Engineer must understand systems engineering, systems design and development. The candidate will possess 3-10 years experience in a related engineering environment, with experience and expertise in systems-of-systems definition and integration. Experience in Ballistic Missile Defense is highly desired. Ability to analyze high level needs and through a structured and logical approach refine the need into an integrated set of requirements that leads to a fielded product. Excellent communications skills desired (written and oral). Able to communicate effectively and clearly present technical approaches and findings. Able to write and implement engineering plans within a project. A small amount of travel may be required.

    KNOWLEDGE SKILLS AND ABILITIES:
    The X-Lab is a very fast paced and dynamic environment. The X-Lab is responsible for developing future looking prototypes for the Ballistic Missile Defense System including Sensor/Weapon Integration, Algorithm Development, User Interface Development and other critical leading edge missile defense technologies. The X-Lab has need for a Systems Engineer to assist in full cycle systems engineering of advanced concepts including CONOPS development, system interface design, algorithm design, tool development and system analysis(functional and performance). This position will focus on the integration of the R&D systems into C2BMC, and will contribute to other ongoing X-Lab and Special Projects as needed. The engineer will require the ability to contribute to the development of system requirements and use cases, develop CONOPS, plan test events, develop test architectures, conduct peer reviews, and analyze test results. Assessing how the C2BMC prototype system performs using state vectors, integrating source tracks into the prototype and assessing track processing results, generating and assessing concurrent radar and sensor tracks during M&S and live flight events, and enhancing experimental prototypes based on results of these activities. The System Engineer will apply these results to identify and work to enhance C2BMC for future operations. A successful applicant should have a proven track record of successfully applying system engineering principles to develop product solutions. Candidates should have experience developing system engineering artifacts (e.g. specifications, Interface Control Documents, Use Cases, System Architecture Descriptions, Trade Studies, etc). Familiarity with the application and use of systems engineering tools for requirements management is desirable. Skills required include: identification and definition of desired capabilities, fielding of new capabilities, system-of-system definition, integration practices and methods, communicating the desired capabilities to a diverse group of developers, engineers, subject matter experts, and users, and missile defense and sensor related data analysis. Additional skills desired: Experience with professional analysis tools: Matlab, Excel, S-code, STK, MS-Windows; Unix/Linux Coding skills (Java, C++, or shell scripts) a plus.

     

    Knowledge of command and control systems desired. Knowledge of Windows required and Unix operating systems desired. Knowledge of ballistic missile track correlation algorithms a plus. Perform other duties as assigned. A TS/SCI clearance is preferred. Primary work location is at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC) at Schriever AFB, CO.

    PREFERRED DEGREE TYPES AND EXPERIENCE:
    Bachelor's Degree in Math, Science, Engineering or related technical field. Master's Degree preferred.
