CACI is seeking a Electronics Exploitation Engineer (EEE) to provide forensics and exploitation support for the C5ISR Center. This position will be available and willing to deploy to OCONUS locations to include the CENTCOM and AFRICOM AORs for up to 6 months rotations.
The EEE will serve in relation to the collection and handling of recovered electronics devices, ensuring that triage and technical exploitation (TECHEX) occurs in accordance with organizational intelligence requirements. As the Subject Matter Expert, the EEE must be able to work independently in isolated work environments. The EEE will also execute reach-back and coordination with CONUS-based engineering staff, as needed.
The EEE will be expected to generate forensics reporting from TECHEX generated products and will respond to any associated analytical requirements. This position requires OCONUS deployments to the CENTCOM and AFRICOM AOR. While deployed, responsibilities include installing, debugging, maintaining, upgrading of all assigned equipment as well as provide broad mission support, training, briefings, employing and fielding of the TECHEX capability to include; electrical forensics applications, tools, and systems.
*This position description is not an active opening but is representative of positions within CACI that are consistently available. Individuals who apply may also be considered for other positions at CACI.
What You’ll Get to Do:
Provide hands-on technical forensic exploitation support for technical intelligence (TECHINT), media exploitation (MEDEX), cell phone exploitation (CELLEX), electronic exploitation (ELEX), and other unique exploitation missions.
Conduct electronic analyses of target devices, including functional analyses of the target devices, understand and describe how the target functions from an electronic perspective – basic signaling characteristics; voltage levels; electrical connections; electrical modifications to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware; logic states; operating frequencies; component configuration identification; operating profiles/modes; operation in noisy electromagnetic environments; and susceptibility.
Serve as subject matter expert in RF characterization.
Publish reports and briefings in order to present characterization information, electronics vulnerabilities, and exploitation recommendations.
Work with a team to respond to RFI’s and determine best consolidated solutions to problems.
Design and implement characterization standard operating procedures (SOPs) and implement SOPs in daily functions.
You’ll Bring These Qualifications:
Active Secret clearance and ability to obtain a TS/SCI.
BA/BS and 3 years experience (OR) Associates degree and 5yrs experience
An understanding of RF communications, with a particular emphasis on complete characterization of electronic circuits.
Experience in electronics engineering.
Experience using benchtop RF equipment including Signal Generators, Spectrum Analyzers, Oscilloscopes, and other equipment.
Perform standard RF measurements (e.g. occupied bandwidth, average power, pulse width) using the previous listed test equipment.
Experience in synthesizing and generating various types of RF waveforms using and arbitrary waveform generator.
These Qualifications Would be Nice to Have:
BS in Electrical Engineering
Previous experience working in OCONUS DoD forensic exploitation labs, to include FXL-C and ACME Labs
Experience in reverse engineering electronic devices from start to finish
Experience in reverse engineering electronic components and circuit boards.
Experience supporting exploitation and modeling and simulation tool development.
Working knowledge of software defined radios (SDR), such as the Ettus B210 and x310. Able to interface with such units in order to transmit or receiver RF signals.
Basic Matlab (and other basic programming/scripting) skills, should be able to apply digital signal processing techniques to communication signals. Techniques include digital filtering, sample rate conversion, frequency/phase estimation, demodulation, carrier recovery, timing recovery, channel equalization, pulse shaping, and forward error correction.
Experience working with embedded systems such as Arduino and writing programs leveraging the SPI bus to configure and analyze various chipsets.
Previous OCONUS deployment experience.
