Job Description

Description

The Missile Defense Modeling and Simulation team at SAIC is seeking a Modeling and Simulation (M&S) engineer/analyst to support the customer in a fast paced environment with simulation-driven assessments and products. Candidate would participate on multidisciplinary study teams and perform the following activities: study planning; model setup and execution; data extraction and analysis.

The candidate will be expected to apply M&S tools in order to provide the critical analytic underpinnings and timely insights necessary for informed Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) decision-making.  Utilize and develop our M&S tools to support missile defense system engineering activities including: element design, performance evaluation, concept exploration, concept of operations (CONOPs) development, asset siting, adversarial threat sensitivities, countermeasures, and test & evaluation.  Candidate will be expected to analyze current and future missile defense architectures and system concepts in all phases of flight to help determine future investment paths. In addition, candidate may conduct performance analyses of real world events, including assessment of sensor viewing, location of mobile missile defense assets, and calculation of the probability of engagement success of threat ballistic missiles, rockets, and re-entry vehicles. 

SAIC’s has been a leader supporting the IAMD community for more than thirty years, beginning with the engineering behind President Reagan’s vision of the Strategic Defense Initiative for ballistic missile defense and the OSD/USAF Air Defense Initiative.  SAIC’s involvement in IAMD covers performance analysis, technology recommendations, advanced sensor concepts, emerging architecture evaluation, and systems engineering/integration.  SAIC’s M&S tools span the spectrum from very high fidelity engineering tools to perform component assessments to force-on-force level simulations to examine architecture level performance. Our engineering support to the IAMD community includes MDA, JIAMDO, OSD, Services, CoComs, STRATCOM, and DARPA. Today we are integral members of the team defining and testing the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). 

Qualifications

Bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited college/university in engineering, physical science, computer science, operations research, mathematics, or other STEM fields is required.
