  • Future Combat System Support: Provide Concept Development, Operational and System performance support. Develop tracking, management of artifacts for government procurement.

  • Mission Engineering: Provide planning, analyzing, organizing, and integrating current and emerging operational concepts for the purpose of evolving the end-to-end operational architecture and capability attributes, across the Doctrine. Support the development of multi-platform scenarios that provide for assessment and evaluation of Allied/Joint/Navy mission operations.

  • Requirements Engineering: Contribute to the development of combat system-level requirements, interface definition, and integration options for surface ship combat systems. Define and allocate requirements to the AEGIS Combat System (ACS) and AEGIS Weapon Systems (AWS) subsystems.

  • Architecture Engineering:  Utilize MBSE approaches and tools to develop end-to-end model(s) that link the SE artifacts (e.g., WBS, requirements, product trees, technical baselines) to the T&E artifacts (e.g., test strategies, test cases) increasing consistency and efficiency throughout the system development lifecycle.

  • Combat System (CS) Engineering: Utilize digital engineering to create virtual environments and models and continue to lead preliminary and detailed design reviews, CDRs, TIMs, and code reviews during development of future weapons. Provide preliminary and detailed design analysis of training system configurations identifying new equipment and define interface and through-put requirements, resulting from baseline changes, to the combat systems on multiple platforms.
