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.

Key Responsibilities

  • Direct sponsor engagement and facilitate product or system requirements gathering and analysis.
  • Verify systems engineering product life-cycle including definition, requirements analysis, synthesis, systems analysis and implementation.
  • Conduct product or system design synthesis translating requirements into physical architectures for systems of moderate complexity. Define/refine internal and external interfaces.
  • Develop technical reports and diagrams detailing product or system attributes.
  • Analyze product or system functionality as defined by requirements.
  • Implement approaches that foster reusability of existing model expressions

Additional Responsibilities

  • Interface with sponsors via meetings, technical exchanges, or programmatic reviews to convey system design, requirements, architecture, traceability, and other systems engineering responsibilities as necessary

Required Minimum Qualifications

  • Familiarity with the various phases of the Systems Engineering lifecycle
  • Familiarity with Model-Based Systems Engineering with the OMG Systems Modeling Language (SysML)
  • Experience with Enterprise Architecture Tools (commercial or open-source)

Preferred Qualifications

  • Active TS/SCI Clearance
  • Experience with the DoD Acquisition Process
  • Experience with DoD Intelligence communities
  • Experience and training directly related to implementing Model-Based Systems Engineering solutions on complex, Department of Defense (DoD) programs
  • Experience with requirements development and management
  • Experience with interface definition and management
  • Experience with Cameo Systems Modeler
  • Experience with the development of an integrated system model (UML, SysML and UPDM2/UAF)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

Travel Requirements

10% - 25% travel
