Job Description
BAE Systems is seeking a skilled Model Based Engineer to join our Analysis, Testing & Development Future Vertical Lift (FVL) team supporting the US Army's PEO Aviation/FVL Cross Functional Team in the Huntsville area under BAE Systems IDS Business unit of the Intelligence & Security (I&S) Sector. This effort supports analyses, testing, digital engineering, and development to improve Reliability, Maintainability, Quality, Supportability, and Interoperability (RMQSI) for weapons systems while evaluating new technologies for potential implementation and transitioning and employing Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) within the Enduring and FVL Aviation portfolio.

The objective of this PEO Aviation/FVL Program is to perform analyses, testing, engineering, and development to increase and improve Reliability, Maintainability, Quality, Supportability, and Interoperability (RMQSI) for weapons systems while evaluating new technologies for potential implementation within the Enduring and FVL Aviation portfolio of programs and responsibilities including support for annual technology demonstrations including Project Convergence (PC), Experimental Demonstration Gateway Events (EDGE), and other named experimentation and demonstration events. The FVL CFT and PEO AVN focus consists of identifying new technology capabilities in the critical technology areas of trusted Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomy, integrated network system-of-systems, and integrated sensing and cyber that can be fielded aligning to the policies for Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) on the following items:

Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA)
Future Attack and Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA)
Air Launched Effects (ALE) and Ground Launched Effects (GLE)
Future Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems (FTUAS)
Scalable Control Interface (SCI)
PEO AVN Enduring Fleet (e.g., UH-60M/V, AH-64D/E, CH-47F, and Fixed Wing)
Long Range Precision Munition (LRPM)
Other systems defined by emerging requirements from the FVL CFT

BAE Systems primary role in this endeavor is to develop the Digital Ecosystem integrating and orchestrating each of the various disparate Digital Threads which is encompassed by the FVL CFT and PEO Aviation.
