* Systems Engineer to perform target and countermeasure requirements lead functions for the Missile Defense National Team (MDNT) team supporting the Missile Defense Agency Threat Systems Engineering (EIT) sub-directorate.
* Selected candidate will support the assessment of threat capability and allocation of appropriate portions of the threat performance envelope to Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) flight test targets.
* This entails coordination with the Directorate for Test (DT), BMDS Elements, the Targets & Countermeasures Directorate (TC), and other Directorate for Engineering sub-directorates.
* Candidate will lead the effort to produce high level target requirements documentation that provides the basis for developing lower level documents that are provided to TC for the acquisition of target classes and contracting of individual targets to support specific flight test events.
* The MDNT EIT team will provide system engineering expertise to the development and assessment of target requirements documents.
* This assessment includes analyzing issues and providing a recommended solution, proposing courses of action that define options for target performance definition for a specific flight test scenario.
* The MDNT EIT team is expected to maintain the big picture of test that includes flight and ground test since EIT provides requirements and modeling for both.
* Leveraging the capabilities of the MDNT, candidate will provide engineering inputs to and support resolution of issues related to flight test targets and ground test threat models.
* In addition, candidate will be the interface between the MDNT and the Director, Threat Systems Engineering and the advocate for MDNT capability that can support his tasks.
* He/she will be expected to support ad hoc tasking from the EIT director.
