Job Description

DCS Corp has an exciting opportunity for an Electrical Engineer to support the Aerospace Dominance Enabler Division (AFLCMC/HBZ)at Hill AFB in Ogden Utah

HBZ functions as the Air Force’s technical, acquisition and sustainment experts providing unique and comprehensive support to the warfighter. The ADE Division is responsible for a vast array of USAF systems to include Electronic Warfare, Range Systems, Range Instrumentation, Air Combat Training and Aircrew Readiness, Command and Control Systems, Advanced Radar Threat Systems, Combat Survivor Evader Locator, P5 Combat Training Systems, Black Switch and Legacy Voice Systems. Furthermore, the ADE Division provides support to depot level sustainment and maintenance efforts, FMS, U.S. Army, Navy, Pacific Air Forces, Air Combat Command (ACC), Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), and Air Education and Training Command (AETC) on a continuous basis.

Essential Job Functions:

Responsibilities may also include but are not limited to:

  • Provide system engineering review and analysis of assigned systems throughout the conceptual, demonstration and validation, engineering, manufacturing development, production and development and operations and support phase.
  • Develop and/or originate new features in added to improving, extending, or validating currently known percents, data, methods, or techniques.
  • Assist in translating DoD user requirements into system requirements, which is used to design, develop, fabricate, test, and evaluate systems, subsystems, and equipment.
  • Review overall system design baseline (architecture and interoperability) requirements.
  • Assist in the development of system specifications and system architecture products
  • Perform independent analysis of proposed engineering changes, specifications and provide the Government POC with their evaluation and recommendations on the acceptability of vendor proposals.
  • Support life cycle cost evaluations on proposed systems and components.
  • Assist with test and evaluation support including test planning, test conduct and evaluation of test results against operational requirements to include participating in Integrated Team, Test Readiness Reviews, and other related system or program events and assisting in the determination of capability and availability of major DoD and civilian test resources and facilities.
  • Assist in scheduling and securing required test resources in support of project and program office objectives.
  • Monitor, assess status, and report on T&E efforts of all types of systems.
  • Assist in designing, planning, execution, analysis, reporting, and documentation during any phase of test and evaluation programs, including applicable certifications and procedures, to assess the performance of systems, subsystems, components, and equipment.
  • Support the development of system and program’s technical plans to include the review of technical documents, participation on program or system working groups, tracking status of risk and issue resolution, review of test plans, procedures, and data, and support of special studies to define alternative approaches.

Design & Architectures:

  • Conduct and support all engineering and technical activities required during the material solution analysis, technology, engineering, and manufacturing development, production and deployment, and operation and support phases of the systems acquisition process. Develop/prepare engineering and technical documentation inherently part of the activities listed above (e.g. Analysis of Alternatives (AoA), Systems Engineering Plan (SEP)…), systems review and analysis with written reporting, briefing, and artifact development as required for all of the technical specialty areas defined in this section; and the planning and execution of all necessary technical reviews, assessments, and interchange meetings (e.g. Critical Design Review(CDR), Manufacturing Readiness Assessment (MRA), Reliability Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM)) and associated artifacts (e.g. Critical Design Review entry and exit criteria).
  • Conduct systems architectural analyses to include system design/design feasibility and state-of-the-art assessment.
  • Produce architectures, document planned and existing systems, determine-deficiencies, develop alternatives, recommend solutions, and support development of a plan to implement the chosen solution per acquisition and sustainment system engineering processes. This may include traditional architecture development or Model Based Systems Engineering processes.
  • Track and ensure system architecture and interoperability requirements for the baselined system is maintained.
  • Detail operational requirements and functional interactions within the system and with other systems, considering life cycle costs, logistics supportability, human factors, et al, to determine if the basic building blocks of the system are defined in sufficient detail to support a development program effort.
  • Translate DoD user requirements into system requirements for designing, developing, testing and evaluating systems and subsystems using USAF and DoD approved acquisition methods.
  • Provide engineering analysis of system training, training equipment and simulator requirements; prepare technical documentation; and provide engineering evaluation of equipment and simulator designs.

Acquisition:

  • Understand and implement robust DoD acquisition and sustainment systems engineering processes to address the life-cycle requirements of each product support area.
  • Prepare and review program specifications for items, processes and materials.
  • Develop and utilize analytical, simulation, MBSE and digital engineering analysis techniques to optimize system performance and/or system effectiveness; establish system sensitivities, define system parameters, evaluate hardware and validate flight test results in terms of overall system relationships and applications.
  • Develop, prepare, review, and integrate selected milestone review documentation, periodic reports, and certifications as identified in current DoD and AF acquisition policy.
  • Review, evaluate and monitor acquisition Contractor drawings for completeness, currency, technical accuracy and conformance to requirements, specifications, regulations and quality control to ensure compliance with ASME technical Data Package format and requirements.

Technical Management:

  • Complete and support requirements definition and analysis, architecture design, implementation, integration, verification and validation, transition, decision analysis, requirements management, risk management, interface management, and configuration management.
  • Facilitate the transfer of information, lessons learned and best practices across all customers and contractors serviced under this task order within constraints of proprietary rights.
  • Perform market research and trade studies to assess current and future systems to ensure they that meet mission needs/requirements. Conduct, define and evaluate system cost, schedule, and technical performance. Perform reviews, studies (including root cause analysis), audits, evaluations and analyses and provide technical recommendations to the Government.
  • Conduct engineering performance, effectiveness, cost effectiveness, cost performance, life cycle cost, producibility, reliability and maintainability, risk and scheduling trade-off studies.
  • Develop USAF approved Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMP), test plans and procedures, prepare test readiness reviews and associated test documentation using DoD and USAF standard processes, execute developmental tests and assist in operational test planning/execution, and evaluate tests in support of acquisition and sustainment programs.
  • Participate in integrated logistics support efforts, provisioning and source coding, maintenance data collection, technical order management, configuration management, evaluation of quality deficiency reports, and/or identification of alternate sources of supply for diminishing manufacturing/materiel sources preferred.

Required Skills:

Due to the sensitivity of customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required.

A Bachelor's degree plus 2 years of experience. 

An adjudicated DoD Secret Security clearance on the First Day of employment.

Experience  and/or  training  in  the  following  electrical  engineering  areas:  design, development, circuit analysis, RF chain sub-specialties (including antenna design, high power transmitters and amplifiers, receiver processing, etc.) electro-mechanical controls, modeling & simulation, test & evaluation, foreign ground radar intelligence experience or application to DoD systems, DoD Acquisition processes, technical data package development and sustainment, and principles of configuration management.
