Provide systems engineering and technical leadership to conduct requirements and performance analysis supporting the development of Electronic Warfare (EW) systems.
Duties (Listed in order of importance with the estimated amount of time spent
at each task):
Provide technical leadership in systems engineering to PEO IWS 2E and 2D programs to ensure the quality of systems engineering products is sufficient to meet DoD and NAVSEA technical review requirements and establish a disciplined, common process across Surface EW programs. Develop and refine system and software specifications for Surface EW systems development through interactions and coordination with APL, Navy and contractor EW analysts and engineers. Initiate or conduct trade studies as needed. Review requirements language and manage the configuration of requirements baseline documentation using DOORs and other tools as prescribed by PEO IWS 2E/D programs. (80%)
Review, assess and make recommendations on proposed changes to requirements, design and production specifications as they relate to contract, allocated, and production baselines. Assess the impact of changes in meeting system requirements, document resulting gaps in operational capability, and assess the suitability of test methods to verify requirements at the system and component level. (10%)
Establish effective working relationships with counterparts on the Surface EW Government Team that are working systems engineering tasks, ensuring APL activities are coordinated and aligned with program objectives. (10%)
