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 Military Usage Support Analyst will be responsible for applying modeling and simulation (M&S) tools to perform engineering analyses of military PNT solutions, including threat analysis, user requirements analysis, regulatory analysis, and spectrum impact analysis.
The PNT Military Usage Support Analyst will:
Assist in overseeing and coordinating the DoD’s GPS, NAVWAR and PNT management and acquisition activities.
Support DoD CIO participation in USD(AT&L)-chartered IPAs, OSD DAES reviews established to provide oversight and review of the DoD’s GPS acquisition.
Research, review and analyze acquisition agency plans, strategies and briefing materials, assist in scheduling and conducting OSD acquisition reviews to include preparing DoD CIO principals to attend USD(AT&L) DABs, and in developing guidance materials to the acquisition agency.
Develop, publish, and maintain system specifications and technical documentation as required, including performing research, assessments and providing recommendations on technical issues affecting system performance.
Support DoD CIO in reviewing requests from government contractors and other private sector enterprises to use GPS PPS equipment and security devices in Independent Research and Development (IR&D) programs.
Assess the impact of emerging threats to DoD PNT systems and formulate plans to ensure ongoing viability of these systems.
Provide expertise in the application of modeling and simulation (M&S) tools to perform engineering analyses of the PNT solutions that represent existing DoD programs (e.g., GPS) or may become a preferred PNT solution and a DoD PNT program (e.g., chip scale atomic clocks).
Possess the technical capabilities and expert knowledge necessary to provide support over a broad range of acquisition management activities to include research and system engineering tasks.
System engineering knowledge of PNT requirements and solutions is critical to successful performance.
Possesses and applies a comprehensive knowledge across key tasks and high impact assignments.
Plans and leads major work assignments.
Evaluates performance results and recommends major changes affecting short-term project growth and success.
Functions as a technical expert across multiple project assignments. May supervise others.
