Overview: Vencore is a proven provider of information solutions, engineering and analytics for the US Government. With more than 40 years of experience working in the defense, civilian and intelligence communities, Vencore designs, develops and delivers high impact, mission-critical services and solutions to overcome its customers most complex problems. Headquartered in Chantilly, Virginia, Vencore employs 3,800 engineers, analysts, IT specialists and other professionals who strive to be the best at everything they do. Vencore is an AA/EEO Employer - Minorities/Women/Veterans/Disabled Responsibilities: Create a prototype information environment that will ultimately enable the trade space for interoperable combinations of capabilities (eg weapons, platforms, sensors, C2 systems) to be composed, analyzed, validated for mission suitability, and instantiated in real or near-real time.Lead Modeling & Simulation (M&S) software engineering development efforts. Design, develop, and test models characterizing the battlespace across platform / systems spectrum; enables greater composability of Navy investments.Take designs for new simulations from concept to implementation based on system specifications. Perform unit, integration, and regression tests as well as validation to recorded tactical system data. Integrate physics-based simulations into runtime-integrated combat/weapon system simulations. Support software development efforts for virtual modeling / design capability supporting requirements validation, acquisition, engineering, and operations. Develop high fidelity, physics-based phenomenology models in advanced client-server architectures that simulate next generation sensors, weapons, and platforms simulation capabilities. Leverage advanced hardware architectures, gridded-parallel computing, and GPUs. Develop advanced capabilities for supporting Surface/Subsurface Warfare, Air Defense, and Integrated Air and Missile Defense. Support embedded tactical code-based simulations. Explore M&S concepts for time-controlled, virtualized tactical systems as very-high fidelity representations of operational systems stimulated by physics-based simulations.Perform system modeling using MBSE tools and techniques to define system interfaces, requirements and behaviors. Required Qualifications:BS in Electrical/Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Physics, or equivalent, with 5 or more years of relevant experience in a DoD-related program or similar. Demonstrated skills in modern software design and development using C++ or Java object oriented programming, distributed computing, client-server messaging, database systems and design. Experience with modeling and simulation development, DoD system performance analysis, and good system-level understanding of modeled/analyzed system. Good communication skills, and ability to work collaboratively in a team environment. Desired Qualifications:MS or PhD in computer engineering/science with strong EE/physics/math background. Familiarity with agile software design methodologies, GPU programming such as with CUDA, and distributed computing environments and architectures. Experience in surface Navy combat and C4ISR systems.Security: Top Secret Clearance is required.
