Responsibilities

The Junior Analyst will provide analysis for research and development activities, within a team, associated with directed energy (DE) weapons in a mission context (realistic military scenarios) using modeling and simulation (M&S). Mission contexts include the threats, sensors, weapons, command and control (C2), and the platforms that support these sensors, weapons and C2 (aircraft, vehicles, fixed ground units, etc.). The missions are played out in controlled experiments to determine the military utility of various scenarios and combinations of systems.

The Junior Analyst will develop scenarios, and systems in an M&S environment by scripting of system behavior. This development will require direct communication with scientists, developers, and warfighters to ensure correct representation of system capabilities. The Junior Analyst will support the preparation, execution, analysis, and reporting of military utility studies, to include written and oral reports and presentations.

Travel will be required. Estimate four trips per year with a duration of four days, each.
