Job Description

Description

SAIC is seeking qualified candidates to support the US Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation (AFAMS) program.

AFAMS is the premier agency responsible for implementation, integration, and development of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) and training and analysis standards that support the US Air Force (USAF), Department of Defense (DoD), and mission partners requiring these capabilities to support the Warfighter in full-spectrum operations. As the lead agent for M&S within the USAF, AFAMS gathers requirements, seeks out potential solutions, and integrates legacy and emerging M&S solutions across the USAF and the DoD. The USAF has an M&S initiative that focuses on providing simulation and synthetic training as the critical capability to augment live training, act as an enabler for critical decision-making, and enhance human performance. In the current resource constrained environment, demand for M&S rises with the continuously evolving need for operational readiness and mission preparedness across the USAF, DoD, and with coalition partners. AFAMS focuses on providing innovative M&S services as the key to meeting this demand.

The role of this position is to support Headquarters USAF/A3W in the Pentagon, DC (this position is open to teleworking for a very qualified candidate). The Air Force Weather Modeling and Simulation SME will:

  • Provide M&S support to the Simulation and Analysis Facility (SIMAF)
  • Coordinate with Air Force Warfighting Integrating Capability (AFWIC) and HAF/A9 on future weather data requirements and integration for JADC2, ABMS and the Sensing Grid.

  • Working knowledge of the following:
    • Meteorology/atmospheric sciences, to include atmospheric dynamics and thermodynamics; weather system analysis and prediction; physical meteorology; and remote sensing of the atmosphere
    • Physics
    • Ordinary differential equations
    • Familiarity with three or more of the following: Physical hydrology, statistics, chemistry, physical oceanography, physical climatology, radiative transfer, aeronomy, advanced electricity and magnetism, light and optics, or computer science
