CACI International Systems Engineer 3: TS/SCI FSP in Fort Meade, Maryland
CACI’s National Solutions (NS) group is seeking a Senior Information Systems Engineer 3 holding a TS/SCI FSP, with expertise working in SIGINT environments. In this role you will play an integral part of a team defining , design, integrate, and manage complex systems in support of rapid response and deployment of next generation solutions for SIGINT/Geolocation systems used worldwide.
NS programs thrive in a culture of agile innovation while we solve highly complex problems and we are proud of our teams, which consistently rise to the highest level of production.
Your primary responsibilities will include:
Overarching systems engineering management of development and delivery of very complex SIGINT Geolocations systems.
Manage system requirements and derived requirements to ensure the delivery of production systems that are compatible with the defined system architectures, such as Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), Service-oriented Architecture (SOA),
Contribute to the development of sections of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements specifications, and Interface Control Documents
Assist with the development of system requirements, functional requirements, and allocation of the same to individual hardware, software, facility, and personnel components.
Coordinate the resolution of action items from Configuration Control Board (CCB) meetings, design reviews, program reviews, and test reviews that require cross-discipline coordination.
Participate in an Integrated Product Team to design new capabilities based upon evaluation of all necessary development and operational considerations
Allocate real-time process budgets and error budgets to systems and subsystem components
Generate alternative system concepts, physical architectures, and design solutions
Define the methods, processes, and evaluation criteria by which the systems, subsystems and work products are verified against their requirements in a written plan
Develop system design solution that satisfies the system requirements and fulfills the functional analysis
Review and provide input to program and contract work breakdown structure (WBS), work packages and the integrated master plan (IMP)
Participate in the development of system engineering documentation, such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements Specifications, and Interface Control Documents
Participate in interface definition, design, and changes to the configuration between affected groups and individuals throughout the life cycle
Derive from the system requirements an understanding of stakeholder needs, functions that may be logically inferred and implied as essential to system effectiveness
Derive lower-level requirements from higher-level allocated requirements that describe in detail the functions that a system component must fulfill, and ensure these requirements are complete, correct, unique, unambiguous, realizable, and verifiable
Participate in establishing and gaining approval of the definition of a system or component under development (requirements, designs, interfaces, test procedures, etc.) that provides a common reference point for hardware and software developers
Develop derived requirements for Information Assurance Services (Confidentiality, Integrity, Non repudiation, and Availability); Basic Information Assurance Mechanisms (e.g., Identification, Authentication, Access Control, Accountability); and Security Mechanism Technology (Passwords, cryptography, discretionary access control, mandatory access control, hashing, key management, etc.)
Implement comprehensive SOA solutions
Implement operational view, technical standards view, and system and services view for architectures using applicable DoDAF standards
Review and/or approve system engineering documentation to ensure that processes and specifications meet system needs and are accurate, comprehensive, and complete
Capture all interface designs in a common interface control format, and store interface data in a commonly accessible repository
Assess each risk to the program and determine the probability of occurrence and quantified consequence of failure in accordance with an approved risk management plan
In conjunction with system stakeholders, plan the verification efforts of new and unproven designs early in the development life cycle to ensure compliance with established requirements
Prepare time-line analysis diagrams illustrating the flow of time-dependent functions
Establish a process to formally and proactively control and manage changes to requirements, consider impacts prior to commitment to change, gain stakeholder buy-in, eliminate ambiguity, ensure traceability to source requirements, and track and settle open actions
Manage and ensure the technical integrity of the system baseline over time, continually updating it as various changes are imposed on the system during the lifecycle from development through deployment and operations & maintenance
Support the planning and test analysis of the DoD Certification/Accreditation Process (as well as other Government Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes)
Support the development and review of Joint Capability Integration Development System (JCIDS) documents (i.e., Initial Capability Document, Capabilities Description Document, IA Strategy)
Provide technical direction for the development, engineering, interfacing, integration, and testing of specific components of complex hardware/software systems to include requirements elicitation, analysis and functional allocation, conducting systems requirements reviews, developing concepts of operation and interface standards, developing system architectures, and performing technical/non-technical assessment and management as well as end-to-end flow analysis
Develop scenarios (threads) and an Operational Concept that describes the interactions between the system, the user, and the environment, that satisfies operational, support, maintenance, and disposal needs
Conduct quantitative analysis in non-functional system performance areas such as Reliability, Maintainability, Vulnerability, Survivability and Producibility,
Establish and follow a formal procedure for coordinating system integration activities among multiple teams, ensuring complete coverage of all interfaces
