The Office of the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Officer (CIO) requires management, programmatic and systems engineering support services for the DoD Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Enterprise, including national security, civil, commercial, and international cooperative aspects involved in acquisition, deployment/fielding, and operation of all DoD GPS, PNT and NAVWAR systems. The DoD Global Positioning System (GPS) has been operational for over 20 years and is well established as a military utility fulfilling a multitude of requirements as the predominant PNT source for the warfighter.
The PNT Task Lead will:
Provide research, engineering, technical, and administrative support to the DoD PNT Enterprise Oversight Council, Executive Management Board (EMB), and associated Working Groups. The contractor shall be responsible for maintaining all records of Council, EMB, and Working Group activity.
Provide support to research and system engineering oversight and coordination for the various DoD GPS, PNT and NAVWAR development activities, including developing, publishing, and maintaining system specifications and technical documentation.
Assist DoD CIO in developing operational implementation policy, requirements, and guidelines for GPS and related PNT systems within the DoD PNT Enterprise, including performing assessments and providing recommendations on systems implementation issues.
Assess the impact of emerging threats to DoD PNT systems and formulate plans to ensure ongoing viability of these systems. This will also involve assessing the impact of civil, commercial, and international use of augmentations and alternatives to GPS and other space-based PNT systems.
System engineering knowledge of PNT requirements and solutions is critical to successful performance.
Roadmap development experience showing timelines for operational capabilities, which requires substantial engineering expertise in the technology under review.
Provides technical/management leadership on major tasks or work assignments.
Establishes goals and plans that meet project objectives.
Has domain and expert technical knowledge and extensive experience in the development of solutions, recommendations, or outcomes. Decision making and domain knowledge may have a critical impact on overall project implementation.
