Military Modeling and Simulation Analyst
The Challenge:

Analyze the actual and predictable interacting operational activities of a military, governmental, or business system to obtain a quantitative, rational basis for decision making or resource allocation. Leverage modeling and measuring techniques, mathematics, statistical methods, engineering methods, operational mathematical techniques, and other principles and laws of scientific and economic disciplines in determining solutions.

Prepare mathematical-based models to evaluate future and current military assets to support decisions concerning training, organizing, and equipping the warfighter so the assets can be effectively deployed by those with tactical control. Models will evaluate the interaction between an airborne target and a surface-to-air missile air defense system. Models will provide a realistic representation of systems with tracking, correlation, and fusion algorithms and used to rapidly determine the scenario composability from engineering to mission level simulations. Duties of this role include model development, gathering, manipulating, and interpreting data, including missile thrust, weight, velocity, angle of attack, and seeker tracking data and writing scripts and business documents, including technical approaches, frameworks, and evaluations in memo or presentation formats, such as presenting materials to leadership for final investment decisions or to inform position papers.

You Have:

-Experience with developing mathematical based models
-Experience with one or more scripting or scientific languages, including Python and R

-Experience with data manipulation, analysis, and visualization of data
-Ability to learn the physics of military equipment with an emphasis on electronic warfare and communications
-Ability to understand Design of Experiments (DoE)
-Active Top Secret clearance required
-BS degree in Engineering, Operations Research, Applied Mathematics, or CS

Nice If You Have:

-Experience with ESAMS and AFSIM
-Experience with physical modeling and representation
-Experience with Linux systems

Clearance:

Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information; Top Secret clearance is required.
