Description

Model-Based Systems Engineer - ACL

Submit Resume ID: 497068 Type: Researchers Location: Atlanta, GA Categories: System Engineering

Project/Unit Description

The Advanced Concepts Laboratory (ACL) of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) seeks qualified individuals for the position of Operations Analyst. This position involves applying analysis techniques to solve challenging real-world problems related to national defense. The candidate will apply MBSE concepts to various national defense projects, often focused on the defense technologies of the future. The candidate will work in and sometimes lead an interdisciplinary team with modeling and simulation engineers, operations analysts, people with experience in military or intelligence operations and analysis, physicists, mathematicians, and people from government organizations, other universities, or industry partners.

The Signals and Systems Division (SASD) engages in research related to high- impact, technical analysis for U.S. Government projects. The division's mission is to shape the development of next-generation technical capabilities and strengthen our national defense through leading-edge research and analytic support, informed by a deep knowledge of operational capabilities, current intelligence, and the related information environment. SASD engages in research in Information Warfare, advanced threat analysis, operational employment concepts, advanced EM spectrum management, test and evaluation, and knowledge management primarily through the application of modeling and simulation.

The Advanced Concepts Laboratory develops tailored solutions for a broad range of national security challenges through disciplined application of physics- and effects-based modeling to realizable systems, augmented with prototype development and testing. ACL's research thrusts extend across domains, and include bio-, chemical-, RF-, and optical-sensor physics; materials science and engineering; electromagnetic theory, computation, structures, and measurements; electronic warfare techniques and applications; operational scenario modeling and simulation; traditional and asymmetric threat analysis; and ground maneuver warfare.

Job Purpose

Model-based Systems Engineers (MBSE) develop and execute novel system model- based approaches to define, design, analyze, and document system development. Applies MBSE tool suites to enable the use of model-based best practices in DoD acquisition and system life cycle support. Supports stakeholders and sponsors in the application of MBSE to tradespace analysis, design, and acquisition. Executes SE and MBSE processes including system definition, functional decomposition, requirements development, architectural development and analysis, design synthesis, system analysis, data modeling and architecture development, and test program development. Presents technical and program management presentations to government sponsors.
