SAIC seeks an Experimentation Coordinator to assist the government in orchestrating the changes to the network and data architecture for the Air Force's future Multi Domain Command and Control (MDC2) network and data virtualization capability.
Candidate should have operational experience with a functioning Air / Space / Cyber Operation Center to bridge the gap between operational knowledge and the implementation of a future technology to support the MDC2 vision. We will achieve the vision through a multi-node concept unifying software development with operators in order to achieve MDC2 objectives. The MDC2 vision serves as a warfighter-centric focal point for USAF, Joint and coalition by rapidly developing capability and testing of future multi-domain concepts. The multi-domain command and control solution will include a cloud implementation and network architecture in contested environments and an overarching architecture that is highly secure and leverages big data and artificial intelligence/machine learning. The position will blend operational air / space /cyber experience with an understanding of experimentation principles to blend the operational need with the art of the possible technologies. The candidate will need to have experience creating operational experimentation plans with the ability to communicate operational concepts to the technologist while providing test objectives and requirements for those technologists to fulfill. The successful candidate will have strong technical competency and comfort with high level in-person interfaces with industry and officials from the US Government and Air Force on site in the client's Massachusetts location.
Use the operational expertise to support the government technical manager in developing technical objectives and experimentation planning for several new and ongoing experimentation projects under the MDC2 program umbrella
Work with government team to develop operational test objectives to support the MDC2 vision.
Provide coordination between the government and the experiment team, typically external vendors or academia.
Work with external vendors or academia to fully understand the requirements and expectations;
Have an overarching view of the experiments and their progress. Advise the government on progress and impediments to success on the projects.
Work with the government technical manager (as the operational expertise) to advise and support several meetings, in-progress reviews, and distinguished visitors in support of the program.
Monitor multiple experiments happening across the defense space that will validate technologies for MDC2.
Be able to answer questions while keeping the government technical manager informed on issues
Coordinate with cybersecurity to ensure security boundaries are set and ATOs are feasible.
Candidate must have a current Secret clearance and TS/SSBI (SCI) eligible.
Bachelors and eight (8) years or more experience with a major in technology and/or engineering (may substitute experience for degree).
At least 2 years of RDT&E experience (Research, Development, Test & Evaluation)
At least 2 years of experience with DoD operations centers: air, space, or cyber and creation of operations support or experimentation plans
At least 3 years of experience with IT project scheduling/coordinating.
At least 3 years of proven experience in federal government experimentation or modeling and simulation programs
Demonstrated ability for oral and written communication with the highest levels of management.
Working knowledge, experience administering, and managing multiple, concurrent IT programs, projects and tasks.
Knowledge of NW and virtualization technology (such as AWS, VMware, etc.)
Knowledge of hybrid cloud enterprise capabilities
Knowledge of security, especially knowledge of the RMF process
knowledge of DevOps, especially Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD)
Knowledge of ITILv3 Foundation
