  • Strategize with government, SETA and industry partners to conceptualize a future ground architecture to drive the customer's new space architecture
  • Perform technical review and assessment of concepts, systems, technologies, designs, architectures, interfaces, and operation of space and ground systems suggested by industry through responses to government Request for Information and Broad Area Announcements
  • Create use cases, develop models and conduct simulations to help evaluate ground architectures and trades
  • Collaborate across multiple teams to refine requirements and system trades
  • Provide programmatic and acquisition support to include constructing Request for Proposal and Statement of Work material and participating in source selection activities
  • Participate in design reviews and technical interchange meetings to assess and guide development activities performed by development contractors
  • Review development contractor’s documents and procedures, requirements flow down, verification methodologies, calibration plans, Concept of Operations (CONOPS), Interface Control Documents (ICDs) and test plans to ensure program success
  • Technical and programmatic support through the entire project life cycle including concept development, system definition, acquisition planning, source selection, system design, development, integration and test, system delivery, and mission operations
  • Briefings and reports including technical and programmatic assessments presenting analysis, results, conclusions, and recommendations. Brief USG staff and industry partners, as requested
