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 the Simulator Common Architecture Requirements and Standards (SCARS) team at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. The SCARS Innovation Engineer will:

  • The contractor will provide interim support to AFLCMC/WNS for organizing and conducting SCARS acquisition projects in order to prepare the Air Force for a permanent operations and integration activity

    • Support technical management activities in execution of SCARS requirements and SECB directives.
    • Establish an “agile” approach to quickly provide recommendations during the SCARS source selection and support all acquisition activities
    • Define and coordinate the technical scope for individual SCARS initiatives through RFP-ready documents and support all acquisition activities as directed by the Government
      • Prepare all technical documentation and manage all activities necessary to support the Government issuance of RFPs for Remote Scanning.

    • Coordinate SCARS initiatives within the simulation and Open Architecture industries. Organize and conduct working groups, collaboration activities, and potential industry engagements to communicate, promote, and evolve SCARS initiatives and concepts.
    • Establish an Air Force SCARS “presence” within the simulation community through regular interactions with the other Uniformed Services, industry, and academia.
