Responsibilities for this Pipeline requisition are: Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) was selected by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency to participate on the Missile Defense National Team. This team was chartered to develop a Ballistic Missile Defense System for the United States. Air & Missile Defense Systems (A&MDS) serves as Northrop Grumman Information Systems' focal point for all activities associated with missile defense, including Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC), simulation & modeling, systems engineering, and target discrimination. Individual will perform end-to-end analysis of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) supporting the systems engineering process for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).The selected individual will develop simulation tools and models of the functional and technical performance of proposed advanced sensors and lasers in the BMDS architecture and future concepts. Selected individual will use these tools/models to evaluate specific scenarios in the Integrated Discrimination Decision Logic (IDDL) program. IDDL is focused on exploring the possibilities of system performance improvements by adding or modifying the types of sensors and the way that data is processed and ultimately the way that decisions are made from the data. The IDDL analysis has the potential to result in the development of countermeasure mitigation strategies and requirements. Individual may act as a subject matter expert on advanced Electro-Optics Infrared (EO/IR) sensor model development, EO/IR threat characteristics, EO/IR component level performance drivers, high energy lasers, orbital mechanics, and missile simulations. Individual may act as a team lead and be responsible for the planning and progress reporting of model development and analysis tasks and coordination with functional working group leads, senior management and government counterparts. The individual will document results in reports and briefings to be presented to the Missile Defense National Team (MDNT) and Missile Defense Agency (MDA) representatives. Performs technical planning, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, and supportability and effectiveness analyses for total systems. Analyses are performed at all levels of total system product to include: concept, design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal. Ensures the logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost constraints. Performs functional analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface definition studies to translate customer requirements into hardware and software specifications. This position description does not represent a current opening but may be used to identify candidates with skills and experience for positions within Northrop Grumman that frequently become available. Candidates who express an interest may be considered for future positions at Northrop Grumman. Qualifications Basic Qualifications: 14 Years with Bachelors in Science; 12 Years with Masters; 9 Years with PhD. Strong technical background in advanced capabilities of EO/IR sensors and applicable phenomenology, model and simulation development, discrimination concepts, acquisition/tracking and pointing, and fuzzy logic. The individual must be considered an industry expert or subject matter expert in the following: laser propagation, laser weapon effectiveness, orbital mechanics, and missile simulation. Capable of working independently and with minimal supervision. Strong coordination, organization, teaming and communication abilities. Capable of assuming a study lead role in analyses and coordinating the efforts with other subject matter experts. Preferred Qualifications: At least 20 years experience performing modeling and simulation, putting to use analytical and programming skills using MATLAB. Candidates with strong technical background to include advanced capabilities of EO/IR sensors and applicable phenomenology, discrimination concepts, applications or algorithms. Candidates with demonstrated simulation experience in one or more of the following areas will be preferred: EO/IR (e.g. PTSS, Halo, HABE, etc.), radar (e.g. AN/TPY-2, SBX, SPY-1 etc), or fire control (ABL, Aegis Weapon System, GFC/C, C2BMC 6.4 etc). Systems engineering experience of large, complex weapons systems. Northrop Grumman is committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce.
