JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY What do we do in our Cyber Systems and Operations Group?
The Cyber Systems and Operations Group works closely with the nation's cyber forces, intelligence community, and federal agencies to identify operational gaps in cybersecurity capabilities and analyze their current and planned systems and missions. We focus on enabling full-scope DoD, IC, and civilian government operations within the cyber domain and across traditional mission domains and sensing layers. We conduct research and development of systems providing situational awareness (SA) and command and control (C2) in the cyber domain. Key technology development thrusts include novel sensors, actuators, sense-making, decision support, knowledge representation, Human Machine Interface (HMI), visualization, automated planning, cloud-based information sharing architectures.
We integrate these capabilities into secure, resilient, cost-effective information sharing architectures in support of effective mission operations. Group strengths include software development, significant testbed infrastructure, and connections to challenges, people, systems and data from multiple operational communities. Overall, we seek to leap ahead of evolving cyber threats and enable comprehensive and secure use of the cyber domain for military and intelligence missions.
The successful candidate will work with our Sensemaking team, to research and develop novel techniques and toolkits for the detection of, identification of, and response to intrusions into networks and computer systems.
