Timing and Synchronization Subject Matter Expert / Advisor (Secret)

Fort Meade, MD

By Light seeks a Timing and Synchronization Subject Matter Expert to join our engineering team in support of our DoD customer.

Work Location: On Site - Fort Meade

This position supports our recently awarded Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) Technology "Tech" Refresh Turnkey Project Support Task Order (TO) 34 valued up to $65M for the enhancement of DISN services to include next generation optical, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and timing and sync.

As a follow-on to By Light's Global Information Grid Services Management - Engineering, Transition and Implementation (GSM-ETI) Implementation Engineering Task Order (TO17) and Tech Refresh Task Order (GSM-ETI TO21), Tech Refresh Turnkey Project Support (GSM-ETI TO34) combines the previous task orders into one coherent program enabling the efficient integration and implementation of innovative DISN technologies

Job Description:

Timing and Synchronization Subject Matter Expert provides expert research and analysis into exceptionally complex problems and processes.

On an executive-level, works on project teams providing technical direction, interpretation and alternatives.

Work Responsibilities and Duties:
  • Acts as an Advisor to staff members, customers, and mission partners on complex technical problems as it relates to the Timing and Synchronization project.
  • Monitors the assessment of project issues and develops resolutions to meet productivity, quality, and client-satisfaction goals and objectives.
  • Develops engineering efficiencies and best practice solutions in support of the organization, customer, and mission partners.
  • Must have ability to generates guidelines for circuit transition activities and provide to Government for review and approval.
  • Initiate and coordinate with customers to plan sensitive customer timing feeds that will be transitioned to a replacement timing distribution device (SSU2000).
  • Develop connectivity plans and best implementation methods for timing reference signals (feeds) from the newly installed clock core and/or the remote campus devices to the newly installed or existing timing distribution devices (SSU2000).
  • Support the transition of all customer timing feeds from existing timing distribution device to newly install timing distribution devices in accordance with the Government approved MOP.
  • Provide solutions for any functional/performance issues resulting from the transitioning of customer timing feeds to the new timing distribution devices.
  • Develop site/project-specific system engineering designs (as applicable).
  • Support the full spectrum of the acquisition lifecycle from opportunity capture to services delivery
  • Shall proactively contact the designated site, Government POC(s), and mission partners for any additional information needed to obtain approval to begin site planning and preparation work in order to develop engineering designs and implementation plans for each site.
  • Must perform or support site surveys to determine the specific MBOM and IBOM required to complete the implementation(s), identify required site preparation work (e.g. power upgrades), and confirm overall site suitability as a project site(s).
  • Gather site information (existing equipment/configuration, racks, cabling, grounding/power, staging areas, etc.) and supporting documentation that enables the Contractor to develop a site engineering solution, site implementation plan, complete materials list (MBOM and IBOM), and current "as built" drawings.
  • Responsible for circuit planning, engineering, and order writing to ensure the engineering solution not only accounts for the equipment that needs to be installed, but the circuits actions required to support the base equipment as well.
  • Make the necessary updates in the Government's configuration management system (currently identified as NCCM-R) to document the proposed engineering solution and implementation plan.
  • Initiate and track Engineering Change Requests (ECRs) for installation of equipment at all pertinent locations.
  • Execute the actions required to deliver a complete, active, and operational service for the customer.
  • Upon requests, generate preliminary Method of Procedures (MOP) for transition activities and provide stakeholders a copy for review and approval.
  • Support calibration/testing/troubleshooting (as necessary) to ensure all equipment, circuits, and services are successfully implemented. This includes transitioning all circuits to the new capability to ensure a fully operational and acceptable customer timing solution

Required Experience/Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree in engineering, computer science, or information technology management or technical discipline is required
  • Active Security + Certification
  • Experience in Timing and Synchronization architecture and design
  • Experience with Timing and Synchronization Systems
  • Working knowledge Microsoft Office tools specifically, Excel, Word, Visio and Project
  • Excellent communication, effective leadership and interpersonal skills

Preferred Experience/Qualifications

  • Experience with some of the following is desired: Microsemi, Zyfer CommSync II, Zyfer GPS Antenna, Finisar, Symmetricom, Cesium Clocks, Zyfer CommSync II, and/or DoDIN
  • Experience working with DOD is desired
  • Field Services experience is desired
  • PMP is desired but not required

Special Requirements/Security Clearance

  • Minimum DOD Secret clearance required
