This position requires a thorough understanding of the DoD systems engineering process, policy and procedures in the acquisition, manufacturing, fielding, and sustainment, modernization and disposal of new, existing and future weapons systems and capabilities. Candidates will leverage their engineering experience and technical writing skills to develop new Anti-Tamper SCG(s), edit/modify/update current SCGs, staff, and publish end SCG products. Personnel performing in this position shall apply knowledge of and expertise in DoD, AF and common engineering and scientific principles, criteria and procedures to improve planned and existing AF and joint service weapon system manufacture, operations, re-manufacture and de-militarization operations and oversight. Individuals will work with the Department of Defense Anti-Tamper office and industry partners in assessing current and future weapons systems’ vulnerabilities to adversary’s exploitation. It is highly desired that personnel in this position have expertise in understanding integrated circuitry, industry standard processors, and memory chips and be familiar with lab equipment used to assess and exploit circuity, processors, and memory chips as well as have familiarity with methodologies for reverse engineering electronic systems and integrated circuitry.
ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES
• Shall assists in translating user requirements into system requirements, which will be used to design, develop, fabricate, test and evaluate systems, subsystems and equipment for deployment.
• Shall apply engineering principles and technical understanding of subject matter material into initial development, modification/updates/revisions, and maintenance of technical Anti-Tamper Security Classification Guides (SCG) using technical writing skills.
• Shall create, update, and sustain SCGs by initiating and managing staff reviews, providing technical edits, finalizing approved products, and publishing.
• Shall assist with the development of requirements and technology needs into action plans and policies necessary to improve and retain world class manufacturing, operations, re-manufacturing and de-militarization of weapon system capabilities.
• Shall perform technical/mission analyses of existing and potential operational requirements, assists in developing system concepts and performs technological/trade-off study assessments of proposed designs.
• Shall develop and review the overall system design baseline (architecture and interoperability requirements).
• Shall assist with developmental planning support in evaluation of military mission to be accomplished and related requirements documentation; define the set of military missions to be performed. Reviews and analyzes proposals, including regulatory and other policy driver changes or proposed modifications for design feasibility and system compatibility.
• Shall review specifications, including system, system segment and equipment specifications, and Interface Control Documents (ICDs) involved in programs.
• Shall support and conduct engineering performance, effectiveness, cost effectiveness, cost performance, lifecycle cost, producibility, maintainability, supportability, reliability, technical and schedule risk assessment and scheduling trade-off studies.
• Shall support and conduct systems analyses to include, but not limited to, system design/design feasibility and state-of-the-art assessment.
• Shall support the development and evaluation of Integrated Master Plan (IMP), Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) and Systems Engineering Detail Schedule engineering cost estimates.
• Shall evaluate systems’ test plans and Test and Evaluation Master Plans and participates in the conduct of system, subsystem and component testing.
• Shall provide systems/subsystems integration support for the acquisition, development and verification of systems and equipment.
• Shall support weapons systems lifecycle including but not limited to analysis of alternatives, creation of investment strategies, manufacturing, support and end-of-life processes.
• Shall teach learning modules within Anti-Tamper courses to industry and Government participants, and assist in curriculum development, as required.
Additional Highly Desired Experience and Qualifications:
• Experience developing programs to evaluate weapons system, training systems, maintenance support equipment, hardware and software security features, weapons systems development best practices and documentation and standardization of anti-tamper and counter reverse engineering exploitation designs.
• Experience evaluating current fielded weapons systems to determine anti-tamper and reverse engineering susceptibility based on vendor design.
• Experience identifying susceptibility of critical protected information from exploitation and reverse engineering.
• Experience identify methodologies to improve resistance of current and future electronic circuits to reverse engineering and exploitation.
• Experience supporting development of industry and DoD standards for future weapons systems to improve resistance to reverse engineering exploitation.
• Experience working with industry to assess tamper resistance of current weapons systems within the acquisition development cycle.
• Experience working within the electronic exploitation lab environment, utilizing or having familiarity with state of the art exploitation equipment and instrumentation to evaluate current and new processors, memory units, and electronic circuits to exploit weaknesses, identify improvements to design, and develop new standards to deter technological exploitation.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
• BS and MS Electrical, Radar, Software, Microelectronics, or Computer Engineering degree
• Minimum of 20 years of relevant DoD work experience.
• No less than three (3) years’ experience in a SAP and/or SCI environment within the last five (5) years.
• Possess an active Top Secret security clearance, based upon a Single Scope Background (SSBI or SBPR).
• Must be eligible for Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and Special Access Programs (SAP) access.
