This is a full-time position requiring 1880 hours of support per year; and work is performed at the customer site. As a Space Requirements Systems Engineer on our team you will provide support for identifying, coordinating, and resolving the technical and policy challenges to utilizing commercial spaces systems to augment existing Space SIGINT system capacity.
The selected systems engineer will work collaboratively across the Intelligence Community to provide systems engineering and other technical assistance to customer’s requirements development and planning for National SIGINT systems with a focus on how those requirements might be enhanced by using commercial space resources.
The selected systems engineer will work closely with intelligence agencies, national-level customers, and military services to capture and document the requirements for the next generation systems. The effort requires participation in numerous meetings, working groups, and integrated product teams, product reviews, and status meetings to monitor the systems engineering plans, development, and deployment of space and ground processing systems. The systems engineer will be a key member of the team charged with the production of solid documentation of the customers’ requirements and a mapping of where, when and how those requirements will be satisfied by capabilities to be deployed across the extended IC enterprise as the next generation collection and processing systems are fielded. The selected Systems Engineer will directly participate in structured analysis of alternatives (AoA) decision making processes as plans work through the appropriate decision gates. To be successful, the selected individual must be able to communicate with other program personnel, government overseers, and senior executives.
A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, or a related discipline and at least 15 years of systems engineering experience.
A Master’s or PhD Degree may be substituted for two years of experience.
Note: a High School Diploma or GED plus 19 years of systems engineering experience would also be acceptable.
Knowledge of National SIGINT technologies, capabilities, their associated system architectural components (i.e. space systems, ground stations, ground processing systems), and knowledge of the national collection requirements prioritization system and associated processes is critical.
An understanding of the policy constraints associated with the conduct of lawful SIGINT operations is also critical to success,
Must have Strong written and verbal communications skills
Ability to represent customer organization at intelligence community requirements working groups and other technical forums.
Position requires TS/SCI clearance with polygraph
Individual Capabilities/Experience Desired:
The ideal candidate would be National Systems SIGINT Ground Architecture SME. However familiarity with relevant IC organizations and processes may be a suitable replacement for detailed technical knowledge of current National SIGINT system capabilities
Some knowledge of DNI’s Intelligence Community Capability Requirements (ICCR) process and the Joint Capabilities Integration Development Systems (JCIDS) process would be valuable. The task generally operates at the enterprise and architectural level of the capabilities needs processes, and seldom requires deep dives into low level system requirements.
Knowledge of customer Corporate Requirements process will be very helpful in being fully effective in this work role as the supported organization often partners with other agency organization as requirements work their way through the ICCR and JCIDS process.
