Posted 11 months ago

The Homeland Security Center (HLSC) is seeking a Multi-Discipline Systems Engineer and counter-unmanned aircraft system (CUAS) subject matter expert to support the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) CUAS Program Management Office (PMO).

HLSC has developed a long-term partnership with DHS in support of the Departments CUAS objectives. Beginning in 2015 HLSC has provided the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) with systems engineering technical expertise and UAS/CUAS technical expertise to identify Component CUAS capability gaps, develop Component-specific CUAS requirements and CONOPS, test and evaluate CUAS technologies, and integrate Federal CUAS efforts to advance a whole-of-Government capability to counter the emerging UAS threat.

The Department's urgency to address emerging threats from UAS demands a sustained, deliberate approach that is informed by rigorous analysis and subject matter expertise which HLSC is in a unique position to provide.

The work will primarily be performed at the MITRE McLean facility in McLean, VA with frequent sponsor and working group meetings in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

The successful candidate will be an experienced systems engineer with experience supporting DHS and/or other Federal Government entities. The work program requires broad systems engineering domain knowledge in the following areas: Capability needs analysis, requirements definition and analysis, modeling and simulation, test and evaluation, verification and validation, and business processes analysis.

Additionally, successful candidates will possess working knowledge of CUAS detection, tracking, identification, and mitigation technologies such as: radar, electro-optical/infrared optics, acoustic sensing, passive radio-frequency (RF) sensing, RF-jamming, and global positioning system (GPS)/global navigation satellite system (GNSS) jamming. Finally, successful candidates will possess working knowledge of common small-UAS rotary and fixed wing platforms. The selected candidate will directly support the CUAS PMO and CUAS Executive Steering Committee.

  • Key Functions

  • Support existing HLSC team to establish an overarching framework to allow the PMO to manage all DHS CUAS implementation activities

  • Provide systems engineering subject matter proficiency to the Requirements, Research, Development, Test and Evaluation working group and the Operations working group to identify, prioritize, coordinate and execute the tasking from the DHS CUAS PMO

  • Support working group leads in leading working group meetings and workshops

  • Support collaboration and coordination efforts with DHS Components to develop the artifacts to support the implementation of CUAS authorities

  • Support collaboration and coordination efforts with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Energy (DOE), and the Department of Justice (DOJ)

  • Help develop and deliver technical and programmatic recommendations to the CUAS PMO in planning, coordinating, and executing rapid response initiatives

  • Support the evaluation of the performance, operational impacts, and collateral risks associated with potential CUAS solutions

  • Required Qualifications

  • BS in engineering or related degree

  • Must have at least a DoD Secret clearance for consideration.

  • At least 5 years of systems engineering experience supporting DHS and/or other Federal Government agencies including UAV / UAS / CUAS experience.

  • Demonstrated multi-discipline systems engineering experience in the following areas: Capability needs analysis, requirements definition and analysis, modeling and simulation, test and evaluation, verification and validation, and business processes analysis.

  • Demonstrated ability to work in a fast-paced sponsor environment, where scope and complexity of tasking change frequently

  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively both as part of a team as well as autonomously

  • Effective task planning and execution skills

  • Excellent interpersonal skills

  • Preferred Qualifications:

  • Working knowledge of key CUAS technology phenomenologies (radar, electro-optical/infrared optics, acoustic sensing, passive radio-frequency (RF) sensing, RF-jamming, and GPS/GNSS jamming)

  • Working knowledge of small fixed and rotary wing UAS platforms

  • A broad understanding of the FAA's small-UAS regulatory landscape

  • Demonstrated experience managing and executing a broad spectrum of systems engineering disciplines
