JOB DESCRIPTION:

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.

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • 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 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.

Qualifications

  • Candidate must have a current Secret clearance and TS/SSBI (SCI) eligible.
