Description

SAIC is the sole provider of Systems and Software Assurance Services to the NASA IV&V Program located in Fairmont, West Virginia. At the NASA IV&V Facility, we support NASA's IV&V Program, delivering analysis and verification & validation of safety-critical and mission-critical software for a number of important NASA programs, including both human and robotic exploration as well as earth and space science collection platforms. The successful candidate will use his or her simulation and modeling software background, software quality and safety expertise, and NASA domain experience to evaluate target programs to ensure safety and mission success.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Performs full-lifecycle (i.e., Concept to Deployment) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) analyses to ensure the logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical constraints.

  • Performs IV&V analysis of systems and software architecture, system and software requirements, software design, software interfaces, source code, software integration and the developer's unit, build, and systems integration test products.

  • Performs functional analysis, scenario analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, and requirements allocation and interface definition studies to evaluate compliance of software specifications with customer requirements.

  • Participates in the software developer's software Requirements, Design, Code, and Test (RDCT) walkthroughs.

  • Develops independent test plans, cases, procedures, and scripts and performs independent testing of safety and mission critical software systems to ensure the system will not do what it is not supposed to do and will respond in a safe and desired manner under adverse conditions.

  • Utilizes static code analysis tools to identify potential source code errors and performs analysis to verify the validity of the errors and assess the impact of the errors on the desired software behavior(s).

  • Conducts software hazard analysis and risk assessments.

  • Interacts directly with targeted development program personnel providing a suitable interface for the program to gain access to the results of IV&V analyses.

  • May lead small teams of analysts performing verification and validation analyses.

  • Analyzes effectiveness/efficiency of NASA program procedures and processes and develops/recommends improvements.

  • Prepares Technical Issue Memorandums/Problem Reports, presentations, technical reports, research papers, and other contract deliverables related to IV&V analyses performed.

  • Supports IV&V project lead directly as knowledgeable reviewer of IV&V products and services.

  • Performs technical task planning and supports the Project Lead in the execution and control of the tasks.

  • Participates in Risk Management process as it relates to execution of the IV&V Project and to the software development project being evaluated by the IV&V team.

  • Participates in selected programs, events, and meetings involving staff, Government customers, and visitors.

  • Work is performed on-site in Government facilities.

  • Occasional travel may be required.
