What do you get when you bring together the brightest minds and place them into an exciting, fast-paced environment that fosters intellectual growth and rewards based on impact, not tenure?
You get one of the best privately held small business headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, that provides advanced technology and expert consulting services to industries throughout the world. AEgis specializes in modeling & simulation (M&S) and micro/nanoscale technology development. Our core competencies include simulation software and training simulators; geospatial databases; 3D models; war fighter exercise support; systems engineering and analysis; verification, validation, and accreditation (VV&A); test and evaluation support; Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) and Man-in-the-Loop (MIL) simulation. AEgis' Nanogenesis Division excels in advancing cutting edge micro and nanoscale technologies from concept to deployment with applications ranging from defense to energy to biotechnology.
Performs Configuration & Data Management Planning & Control of the Distributed Training System Simulation & Stimulation (DTS Sim/Stim) which also includes limited Operations support to Warfighter training. Work location is at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC), Schriever AFB, CO.
Develop, implement, track, and control all CM and DM processes, products, & artifacts in support of the Distributed Training System Simulation & Stimulation (DTS Sim/Stim). Responsibilities include developing & complying with CM & DM procedures, ensuring document & data management procedures are utilized, and identifying Configuration Items and ensuring they are under CM ownership for tracking & reporting. Tracks all software received by product developers and all products developed by the DTS SimStim to include system architecture drawings, HW/SW configurations, Test Case/Scenarios, backups, and other items within the DTS SimStim baseline. Additionally, tracks all HW/SW sustainment issues and ensuring they are captured in the SimStim Trouble Reporting System. Performs Configuration Audits and interfaces with Quality Assurance & Management teams when required.
In addition to the daily CM/DM duties, candidate may be required to backfill personnel supporting daily training operations during periods of personnel absence or surge conditions triggered by real world events.
Operations support include:
Provide a daily training opportunity for Warfighters by operating the Distributed Training System Simulation & Stimulation (DTS Sim/Stim) that interfaces with the Command Control Battle Management Communications system (C2BMC) and the Ground Based Mid-course Defense (GMD) Systems Trainer (GST). This position must also coordinate a variety of issues to include starting and stopping training events with Warfighters and coordinating daily activities with DTS teammates to include personnel operating C2BMC, GST, and other internal and external elements as required. All operations must be recorded in an events log and consistent metrics must be maintained. Operator must be able to work well within a small team of two to four personnel. A training program is provided but does not cover every situation therefore, the operator must be able to overcome obstacles. DTS is expected to operate three shifts across days, swings, & mids during a Mon – Fri work week. Candidate must be willing and able to work off hour shifts as part of a scheduled crew rotation between days and nights. Time may be flexed to accommodate pay schedules but normally would not exceed 40 hrs per week. There may be occasions when the normal scheduled operating times may vary and occasional weekends may be required based on the needs of the Warfighter and the availability of resources. The individual will work closely with a mission-focused team that plans, conducts, and supports missile defense training events for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the Warfighter, and other missile defense stakeholders. Some events may feature Warfighter Operator-In-The-Loop (OITL) participation, and include developmental missile defense system elements or simulations.
The candidate must be able to learn to operate a Linux based system. Must be able to adapt to short term deadlines and work well under pressure. The ability to communicate effectively with multiple organizations using a broad spectrum of tools and to communicate complex concepts, issues, and status to senior contractor and government leadership is a must. Must possess a minimum of a DOD Secret security clearance (or the ability to obtain one).
Experience or familiarity with developing & managing a CM baselined product. Working knowledge or experience with developing and maintaining a data or artifact repository. Knowledge of missile defense concepts of operation, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), and Integrated Missile Defense (IMD) system architectures. Previous experience with the Missile Defense Agency, operations center, or a ballistic missile defense system such as (GFC or C2BMC).
