Roles and Responsibilities

You will be a part of a major new design opportunity that will focus on engineering, analysis, and documentation of current and objective Enterprise Architectures. This will involve architecture development/trade-offs for acquisition strategy decisions to evolve the Nuclear C3 System into a broader Strategic C3/National Leadership Command Capability (NLCC).

You will participate on the technical design team for the future presidential senior leadership and COOP/COG architecture development efforts that will describe and integrate all current planning for modification, upgrade, evolution, and modernization of existing nuclear C3 system components forming the foundation for the NLCC. These activities will focus on implementing System-of-System methodologies and integrating current system architectures of Senior Leader, COOP/COG, and NC3 components into a detailed, NLCC enterprise architecture.

Your direct responsibilities include:
  • Developing recommendations concerning continuation, modification, or elimination of current national leader and nuclear C3 system enhancement plans
  • Collecting and assessing current proven solutions and emerging concepts for national and nuclear C3 Interface with Leidos' team and other Subject Matter Experts to leverage expertise will be essential to the success of the NC3 Architecture.
  • Assess the ability of the current and planned capabilities to achieve the desired NLCC and nuclear C2 mission outcomes and execute the identified tasks, under the full range of operating conditions to fully meet the Nuclear Technical Proficiency Criteria (NTPC) standards.
  • Identify gaps or redundancies; the attributes and parameters of nuclear C3 systems will be used to fill the gaps, and operational mission priorities will also be used for the elimination of gaps or redundancies.
  • Demonstrate exceptional writing, briefing skills, and technical enterprise leadership are a foundational element of the support needed to meet the customer challenges.
  • Document and articulate aspects of the critical architecture products and NLCC systems capabilities.
  • Work with other JSEIO products including technology assessment reports, technology implementation plans, systems engineering documentation, and alternative analysis reports.

  • Experience developing system-of-systems functional mission architectures and capabilities using proven methodologies for complex DOD communications based programs including migration of legacy systems into modernized net-centric, service oriented architectures.
  • Experience conducting system-of-systems architecture/performance trade-off analysis, and engineering designs of nuclear C3 systems.
  • Understanding of, and experience with operations and technical characteristics of nuclear C3 systems to include strategic communications systems, sensor and radar systems, and communications systems deployed at nuclear command centers and on nuclear capable platforms.
  • Thorough understanding of national policy, DOD/Joint Staff guidance, and technical performance criteria requirements regarding nuclear C3 operations.

Preferred Qualifications
  • Ability to apply system engineering techniques and enterprise architecture concepts to specific secure and survivable communications development tasks in a structured approach that supports the five nuclear C2 mission functions and emerging NLCC requirements.
  • Expertise in the areas of DOD acquisition/requirements processes, systems analysis, engineering, and nuclear weapons effects regarding communications within the Nuclear C3 System.
  • Knowledge of secure video conferencing requirements and how these requirements can be used for decision support and situational awareness tools for senior decision makers.
  • Knowledge of activity, data and process modeling techniques and practices to include EA documentation requirements. Hands-on experience with EA development modeling tools is a plus.
