The US Air Force is procuring a critical and complex Space and Ground system to meet operational and tactical collection needs not currently met with airborne and surface deployed sensors. This program emphasizes rapid schedule and complex interfaces. The system design involves schedule automation, challenging collection and processing timelines, and ad-hoc tasking. The specified system is unique compared with traditional, overhead remote sensing programs. SAIC is the Systems Integrator for this complex program.
SAIC is seeking Systems Engineers to develop and decompose requirements, develop interface control documents (ICDs), develop a System CONOPS, and define the System Architecture within Cameo SysML models. This position is located in Chantilly, VA or Aurora, CO and requires a Top Secret Clearance minimum.
Our team develops and manages the program System Specification as well as produce multiple ICDs describing interface details for collection requests, collection planning and scheduling, collection operations, and mission data processing. Our team works closely with Space and Ground developer engineers to mature system design and execute design milestones with our US Air Force customer. Our Systems Engineers regularly interact with our staff Modeling and Simulation engineers to understand and report system performance as well as perform system trades. In addition, some of the required system interfaces are immature in definition and capability requiring a strong engineering background to develop new concepts and designs. Finally, with SAIC assistance, the US Air Force is seeking to align this program with the Joint All-Domain Command & Control (JADC2) strategy.
In this role, you will be involved in early program development including requirements, interfaces, and CONOPS development to ultimately inform critical system test planning and execution all focused on launching a system capability to fill a critical nation need. You will support Space Vehicle and Ground System integration.
