Position Overview
  • Technology Protection Engineers (TPEs) work in the Army Research and Technology Protection Center (ARTPC). The TPE researches and analyzes Research, Development, and Acquisition (RD&A) engineering and programmatic documentation and facilitates Integrated Product Teams (IPTs) to help identify Critical Program Information (CPI). CPI is defined as a U.S. capability element that contributes to the warfighters' technical advantage, which, if compromised, undermines U.S. military preeminence. Once CPI is identified, the TPE works with program engineers, security, and counterintelligence personnel to assess threats to the technology, identify risks, and recommend protection measures which help ensure U.S. Soldiers maintain technological overmatch of their adversaries on the battlefield. The TPE also aids in identifying the critical functions of the technology in order to initiate the Supply Chain Risk Management activities which ensure malicious logic and counterfeit components are not present in the weapon system.
  • A successful TPE candidate needs to possess a general knowledge of engineering principles and the ability to self-study and research a wide range of advanced technology. Once hired, the candidate will be trained in RD&A and Program Protection activities. Upon successful completion of the training program, they will be certified as a Technology Protection Engineer by the ARTPC.

TPE duties include, but are not limited to the following:
  • Effectively analyze and apply the required research and technology protection (RTP) techniques, and integrate those processes and procedures across the many intelligence and security domains.
  • Develop policies and best practices to effectively support the Program Protection Planning process, to include Operational Security (OPSEC), Security Classification Management (SCM), Technology Assessment/Control Plan (TA/CP), Delegation of Disclosure Authority Letter (DDL) and other essential RTP documentation to ensure CPI is properly identified and protected.
  • Facilitate Integrated Product Teams (IPTs) in the analysis of programs for potential CPI, the evaluation and identification of CPI, and the development and recommendation of appropriate countermeasures to protect CPI to program management for their consideration.
  • Draft and staff appropriate program security documentation for Program and Project Management that ensures CPI is identified and protected during the life cycle of the technology or project.
