Position Responsibilities:

  • The selected individual will operate in a team environment to develop operational concepts, functional requirements and performance requirements against evolving threats and countermeasures. 
  • Coordinate within MDA and across industry to evaluate and bring leading-edge techniques and sensor (IR, RF) capabilities into the BMDS system for consideration.
  • May lead M&S tasks that support end-to-end performance analysis of the BMDS.
  • Lead development, updating, and benchmarking/anchoring of BMDS M&S tools to support system analysis tasks.
