The Systems and Analysis Group (Division 10, Group 109) provides technical analyses to senior US Air Force leadership on a broad range of issues, pertaining to the survivability and capabilities of Air Force systems.  Many of these technical analyses rely on a large body of theoretical modeling and simulation tools for radio frequency (RF), infrared, GPS, and directed-energy systems.  These analyses are validated via laboratory experimental measurements and flight testing in conjunction with the Tactical Defense Systems Group (Division 10, Group 108).  In other cases, new models, supported by measurements and tests when feasible, are developed to evaluate new US Air Force capabilities.  Where a rapid capability is sought, the group may lead multi-group coalitions within the laboratory in the execution of these efforts. 

 

US Air Force and Department of Defense issues, for which the group provides analyses, include survivability of advanced US Air Force aircraft versus modern air defenses; the impact of current and future electronic attack and electronic protection techniques; the effectiveness of advanced weapon systems; the capabilities and limitations of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems; and the vulnerability of precision-guided munitions to threat counters.   

Will work with more senior members of the Group in a multidisciplinary team to develop simulation tools and perform analysis to address a broad range of technical problems of interest to the US Air Force and Department of Defense.  Technical areas of analysis include radar, infrared sensors, electronic warfare and GPS.

 

Requirements:

MS in Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, or MS in Computer Science with experience in Physics or Engineering.  In lieu of an MS, a BS with 3+ years of directly related experience will be considered.   Demonstrated ability to program in a technical environment in FORTRAN, C or C++ required.  Technical modeling/simulation experience preferred.
