  • Collection and verification of information to be included in modeling efforts, including coordination with both internal and external program stakeholders

  • Engaging with program and project leadership to support communication of modeling status and potential usage

  • Maintaining and improving proficiency and expertise in the most current MBSE concepts, tools, techniques, and practices

  • Working to develop tools, presentations, and processes to support the implementation and integration of models across programs throughout NAVAIR
