Manager, Modeling & Simulation Department


BAE Systems is looking for well qualified professionals to join our team for an exciting opportunity to support the procurement of the USAF GBSD (Ground Based Strategic Deterrent) ICBM program. The ICBM System Program Office must prepare a sustainment and acquisition concept to ensure a safe, secure and reliable MM III weapon system as required by the war fighter (Air Force Global Strike Command) through 2030. This activity replaces the current ICBM Prime Integration Contract (IPIC) and is identified as the Future ICBM Sustainment and Acquisition Construct (FISAC). The Integration Support Contract (ISC) will not only assist in acquisition and technical sustainment engineering, but also help train and develop this capability in the government. This contract will augment organic resources by providing breadth and depth of capabilities for system engineering and integration, risk management, technical assessment, acquisition program management, strategy development, organization and change management, interface with operations and logistics, business analysis, mission effectiveness, and ICBM Demonstration/Validation (Dem/Val) Integrated Applications Programs.

The position will be located at Hill AFB, Utah.

Job Description:

A manager for the Modeling and Simulation Department is being sought to perform the following responsibilities:

1. Manage a growing group of aerospace analysts within the Systems Engineering & Integration functional group. The Modeling and Simulation department currently consists of nine people, but is growing. Disciplines include missile trajectory, civil engineering for ground structures, propulsion ballistics and thrust vector control, structures, heat transfer, guidance, electrical and electronic systems, and software engineering. Establish work scope and schedules to meet customer and upper management expectations.

2. Create and maintain a meaningful analytical architecture, tying modeling and simulation together in a logical manner to reflect interdependencies and sequences, which would become the foundation of the Model Based System Engineering analytical approach.

3. Have the ability to win the trust of company management, government customers, and the analysts in the department. This would be done while meeting all business and program objectives with high quality deliverables on time.

4. Establish plans to staff the department with needed expertise. Be responsible for budgets, forecasts, and financial performance.

5. Follow and add to the existing road map to acquire the right software tools to evaluate the design concepts that will be proposed for the weapon system.

6. Perform specific analyses at times in a discipline the manager brings to the position.

7. Review contractor-provided models and analyses for proper technical content. Include analytical results in the Technical Maturation & Risk Reduction program to improve the weapon system throughout its development and operational life cycle. Provide oral and written evaluations of internal and external analyses to the highest levels of the DoD to justify the soundness of the project’s technical positions at important program milestones.

8. Operate in a Model-Based Systems Engineering environment that will influence each decision to be made. Have the ability to be agile on a quick-moving technical program with many stakeholders.

9. Coordinate across other product and process-oriented IPTs (Integrated Product Teams) to meet ultimate program goals.

10. Support USAF uniformed and civilian leadership in program development.

11. Conceive, communicate, and execute courses of action to help teams achieve program goals under highly dynamic situations.
