The Missile Defense National Team (MDNT) provides systems engineering solutions to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for the development and evolution of the Missile Defense System (MDS).
The MDS is an integrated, layered architecture that provides multiple opportunities to destroy missiles and their warheads before they can reach their targets.
The Integrated Discrimination Team (IDT) is a product team that performs systems analyses of the existing MDS architecture in conjunction with new technologies and concepts to be considered for future MDS architectures. IDT performs analyses using varied fidelity models and simulations to predict performance against evolving threats of current and future sensors, weapons, and counter-countermeasure concepts. In addition, IDT evaluates decision logic and prototypes various scenarios and architectures to optimize overall system performance in a framework giving insight into performance improvements that may be employed by MDA. IDT works closely with the MDA, FFRDCs, along with various contractors and suppliers to bring about conceptual improvements, models & simulations to help define system improvements, new requirements, and perform architecture trade studies to help assess performance benefits of future systems.
Besides these areas of focus, we also are building models to assess impacts to electronic attack and employment of electronic protection technology.
We have subject matter experts spanning specialties in Radar, high energy weapons, Electro-Optical/infrared (EO/IR), pattern recognition, remote sensing, modeling & simulation (M&S), tracking, sensor and data fusion, imaging, statistical methods, missile technology, interceptors & kill-vehicles, battle management, concept development, and test.
If you are a quick learner, adapt well to change, can work independently and effectively in teams, and have excellent communication skills then this may be your opportunity to be part of a dynamic team of highly talented personnel working on novel concepts and inventive solutions to complex, real-world challenges.
Occasional travel is required.
This position requires candidate acceptance by industry partner resource control board.
