SAIC Modeling Simulation Engineer Principal in CRANE, Indiana


SAIC is seeking a Sr. Modeling and Simulation Engineer to provide engineering and technical support to a collaborative Government/Contractor Team developing engineering processes for next generation weapons systems in Crane, IN .

Note: This position offers temporary work from home/ remote/ virtual work as part of a virtual team due to COVID-19.


Engineers will help execute NSWC Crane's engineering strategy in support of OSD, providing broad support spanning Systems Engineering and Integration, Technology Capability Assessment, and Test and Transition activities. This position will require heavy interface and collaboration with Senior DoD personnel, multiple DoD primes, and other systems engineers to define and interpret requirements, stand up engineering processes, and provide lifecycle management of the systems and subsystems.


Responsibilities may include:

  • Support the GovernmentTransition Management lead across Transition Enabler activities.

  • Support development ofengineering documentation to assist program operations and facilitatecoordinated inter-service technology development (i.e., technology maturationand assessment plans for each S&T project such as development andprototyping plans, test plans, and development schedules for meeting programdesign updates.)

  • Help develop thedigital infrastructure for information management and M&S tool suite toconduct intra-system analysis and trade studies.

  • Helpdevelop validation and verification methods.

  • Developdetailed model-based mission scenarios based on operational needs. Overlayexisting and planned employment scenarios and platform threat assessments toidentify operational performance risks.

  • Developdetail threat assessment models (adversarial, environmental, phenomenology) tohelp standardize assessments across the portfolio.

  • Supporttechnical reviews of system engineering products and models.

  • Supporttechnical review and assessment of technologies, concepts and systems. Assesstechnology models against scenario and threat models. Assess technologyperformance based on design models to validate threshold and performanceobjects satisfy performance requirements.

  • Verifymodels satisfy interface constraints of targeted transition programs. SupportTRL and MRL Assessments for candidate technologies.

  • Advise onissues of feasibility and applicability of relevant new technologies.

  • Analyzealternatives to optimize performance and improve understanding of systemsarchitecture and components.

  • Have asolid grasp of MBSE to effectively communicate system structure, behavior,requirements, and provide parametric analysis to Program Office and Modelingand Simulation stakeholders.

  • Supportdevelopment of configuration-controlled processes for data-driven collaborationon hypersonic technology and transition to ensure configuration control of allSystems Engineering Field Activity Artifacts.

  • SupportSystems Engineering, Systems Integration and Test Working Groups.

  • Demonstratepractical life-cycle systems engineering experience which includes stakeholderneeds definition, system requirements definition and management; systemarchitecture, analysis and design; integration, test, and verification; and,system performance assessment.

  • Developdocuments and briefings to clearly communicate work or study status, briefgovernment and industry as required.

  • SupportTest and Transition Coordination activities, including: DT events acrossHypersonics T&E Enterprise, System Flight Test and qualification events,Transition Integration to meet design and production on-ramps for multipleprograms.
