GBSD is a replacement for the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) weapon system, including the ground, flight, and command & control elements.

The position oversees a growing team of multi-disciplinary engineers in conducting analytics, system specification development, system architecture, test & evaluation, Model Based (Systems) Engineering, integration, configuration management, nuclear surety, reliability, availability & maintainability, and other specialty engineering functions at the direction of the GBSD Program Systems Engineering Branch Chief, Chief Engineer, and System Program Manager. The individual will work closely with these and other government team members, to ensure coordinated and effective Systems Engineering, Integration, and Test (SEIT) support of the GBSD program.

This position will conduct duties in concert with an ISC GBSD Lead Engineer, who will provide technical guidance and oversight of the technical products generated by the SEIT team.
