Job Description

Program Information:

The Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program's Ground Based Interceptor (GBI) team has a need for a software modeling & simulation engineering analyst in Huntsville, Alabama. The GMD System is the first and only operationally deployed missile defense program to defend the homeland against long-range ballistic missile attacks. The system provides early detection and tracking during the boost phase, midcourse target discrimination, precision intercept and destruction of inbound ICBMs through force of hit-to-kill technology. As prime contractor, Boeing is designing, producing, integrating, testing and sustaining all GMD components.


This position is for an entry level software engineer who will be paired with a Boeing senior analyst to ensure GMD Interceptor Kill Vehicle (KV) simulations and analyses meet program needs.


Typical tasks will include:

  • Reviewing existing simulations and algorithms to understand the current simulation suite.
  • Working with subject matter experts (SME) to ensure algorithm development is technically sound and meets program requirements.
  • Reviewing KV and systems performance results, and making recommendations on simulation and/or analysis improvements.

Simulation Engineering Analysts typically execute systems engineering processes to perform end-to-end system performance analysis, conduct test flight planning analyses, perform trade studies for upgrades and new systems, develop element and system model representations, and conduct architecture studies and assessments.


Responsibilities include:

  • Defining and conducting analyses, documenting results in presentations and reports, coordinating with group leads, management and customers.
  • Writing MATLAB code, perform analyses using high fidelity element level simulations, conducting trade studies, support task planning and status reports.

Up to 50% travel may be required.


Position responsibilities are commensurate with 0 to 3 years of engineering experience.


Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians.
