The BMDS Integration Group supports the Missile Defense Agency in the development, deployment, testing, and enhancement of the ballistic missile defense system. This system is currently being developed to defend the United States, deployed forces, and allies from ballistic missile attacks. This group performs detailed system and component engineering, flight and ground test analysis, and advanced capability development in collaboration with the contractors and government program offices that are building the missile defense elements and components. The group has a need for an experienced Modeling and Simulation Algorithm Developer to support Missile Defense Agency (MDA)-sponsored programs, primarily Program 1293, Advanced C2BMC, and Program 3214, Aegis BMD Technology Development. The engineer will develop tools to interface with sensors, extract data, integrate advanced algorithms, build and maintain databases, create visualizations and perform system studies.
RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES
This three-year position will support the development of systems architectures for the Aegis BMD Technology Development and C2BMC Programs. The engineer will work on the C2BMC and Aegis Ashore Sidecar programs and will perform tasks including but not limited to: ensure connectivity between the C2BMC and Aegis Ashore sensors and MIT LL sidecars, develop tools for data extraction from sensors, and perform analysis for algorithm evaluation, algorithm development, and system studies. The engineer will interface with sensors; identify and extract necessary data; program conversion routines to convert data into a format needed by advanced algorithms; as well as store that data in databases. The subcontractor will also take the data and the output of algorithms and develop visualizations to understand the results of the algorithms. These tools will provide an essential foundation for further data analysis within test environments, and will be used as benchmarks against which we are able to measure new tools developed by our technical staff.
